My nephew was playing a game online awhile back and was kicked when his PS3 restarted on him. He said he had just updated a little earlier. Now, as with a bunch of others he has lost access to the BR drive. Disks still go in/out and the blue light acknowledges the presence of a disk.
I have tried a different BR drive and ribbon cable. No difference. I restored the HD. Again, no difference. I used a different drive from a PS3 with a dead processor (bad solder) and still, no change.
I have purchased a PSJailbreak, and want to know if anyone has any thoughts or knowledge if I can repair this system by downgrading the firmware VIA the jailbreak downgrader to something prior to the 3.0 update that caused this.
I have searched for awhile to find a repair idea and nothing. Nothing other than Sony saying the upgrade did not do this, and that it is simply coincidence that hundreds if not thousands of units aquired this same issue at the same time.
Me thinks there is some denial going on. Any help out there?
