So i've got a Playstation 3 phat 60GB CECHC03 model with a 250GB HDD and Rogero 4.55 v1.00 CFW installed.Sponsored Links
The console, as of today, randomly shuts off. It's completely random. It does the whole red flashing light thing.
The first time it did it, the console has been on for an hour running a back up of BEYOND: Two Souls from the internal hard drive.
It then refused to come back on. I thought it might have been the power supply because it came back on when i'd tried like 4 times. It came on, did the "system didn't proper power down" thing and prompted me to check the file system for corruption. It then cut off half way through that.
So i went and got another power supply and stuck that in, tried it another 3 times and it wasn't working.
I has the PS3 downstairs for once as i usually play upstairs. So i took it upstairs, plugged it in and it worked first time and i played BEYOND: Two Souls for another 2 hours just fine. And then it did it again.
So i pressed the power button and it came back on straight away.
Thought it might have been getting hot, the fans weren't spinning up insanely fast so i went and set a custom fan speed with the utility so it was on pretty high.
Then i went and tried to reinstall the firmware, it got halfway through copying the files to the hard drive when it went off again. This time it wouldn't come back on so i left it for a few minutes, tried again and went into the recovery menu.
So i tried to reinstall the firmware again and it went off, I can't remember if it said copying files or actually updating but now it will not come back on.
Does anyone know what this is? Is it a case of YLOD or is it a software problem?
