    [Answered] PS3 CFW to OFW 3.55 help?

    Hey folks, was on cfw 3.55, changed it to OFW 3.55 with no problems, then I went to upgrade but at about 70% the screen just went blank

    Tried switching back on but now still all I get is blank screen, tried diff hdmi/component cables to no avail

    Tried to enter recovery mode but it switches off after 2nd beep

    Can this be fixed?

    I would suggest him to go and see racer's thread for unbricking and downgrading. Since his console is brick.

    it should switch off after bleeping twice. turn it back on holding in the power button again, and release finger when it bleeps.

    if this don't work you could always try a dongle method to get into FSM since your on 3.55. before you do anything though, wait and see if you get a better answer cos i'm often wrong.

    i assume you checked the pup before you tried installing it ?

    turn off console, turn console on but keep finger on power button. it will beep and switch off turn it back on keeping finger on power button again. it will beep, then beep again. take finger off power button, it should be in recovery mode.

    i'd suggest you use the 3.55 ofw pup you originally used. if this don't work, look in the forums for fixing semi brick from dex to cex (bleeping death). this might not work either, there is a forum also for brick repairs and downgrading i'd suggest you look in there and have a chat to racer.

    Tried that method, it's switching off after first beep I'm afraid

    Upgraded to what CFW? This is most likely a brick, but It's always nice to know what gave you the brick.

    he didn't check the pup either, so its highly likely its a brick.
