I have a 40gb fat ps3 with fw 2.53 and with a brokrn lens. I try to update the fw to 3.41.
When i try to upgrade with a new hdd 500gb toshiba. It ask me to format the drive and then it start to installing the update. When it reach 100% it goes black screen. Normally it would restart automatickly but in my ps3 it did not happen. It just black screen and the power indicator still green and nothing happen. I try to shutdown by switch off from behind and when i turn on it back to the installing update phase and end up with the same black screen.
I try to reformate the drive i still not help.
I try to use the old hdd same result.
I use another firmware from 2.70 to 355 same result.
I try to use the recovery menu by press the reset button until beep twice it won't show up.
So i end up with the installing update over and over again.. i hope someone can give me some advice in software and hardware solution.
