    Question [Answered] I am stuck on a PS3 update loop problem help?

    I am having a problem with my hard drive. please read. I tried 4 different used hard drive it come up to 99% and hold the update install would not go any further. All the hard drives came from all ps3. I am thinking on getting a new hard drive but i don't know for sure if that can fix the problem please redirect me.

    I did each time for 2 hours and still nothing. I am thinking I must have to flash the nand chips somehow. What you guys think I should do ??
    Best Answer - Posted by jonnyjaeger:

    Go to recovery mode, there it will ask for the firmware it's trying to complete. Find that firmware and put it on usb and try updating with it.

    And like someone else said, it might be a loose cable for the blu-ray or wifi board. Don't take the sellers word that it's never been opened. Open it up and check for loose cables, before you try anything with a progskeet.

    If you disassembled recently your ps3 then you probably forgot to install a ribbon or you didn't installed it perfectly or you damaged a ribbon, that's why it can't go over and finish the update. Remove the ribbons, clear of the dust and try again.

    its beyond my skill level to tell you exactly what to do mate but i'm sure someone here will know. but i'm sure its what i think, or its a brick which can be fixed with a flasher. i'd try contacting the person you bought it from and get some info.
