PS3 no power with new power supply

Hey everyone,

My original 40GB model PS3 died about three years ago, and I have tried many things to repair it. I think it's about time I bring the issue up here. The issue originally happened when I plugged the AV cables into the TV; causing it to make a spark and a pop, turning off both the system and TV. The system hasn't worked since, and the TV has been having audio issues.

First of all, I checked the fuse in the original power supply. It wasn't broken, but the power supply still wouldn't give power to the system.

Just recently, I bought a replacement power supply of the same model number as that of the original. (APS-239)

Installed it, but the standby light still refuses to light up, and the system won't start. At this point, I'm unsure of what exactly to do. Is there a chance that there is a small part on the motherboard such as a resistor or fuse that needs to be replaced for the new power supply to function properly, or is there a chance that the whole motherboard died when the system did?

Thanks a lot guys,

Comguy

Update;

I'm going to move this over to hardware seeing as it's technically a hardware issue.
