Are you talking about Tali's loyalty mission?

I have the retail version but I never had this problem. I did have a problem with a corrupt save but that doesn't seem to be the case here. I'm assuming you've done the basic things like restarting the game and/or PS3, yes? Do you have a save from before that mission/cutscene? You could try reloading that. Also, the game always autosaves a save where you can completely restart the last mission you did. You could try reloading that too...see if the problem still occurs with different saves.

You redownloaded the entire game? Dang. So, loading a different save give you the same black screen?

Alright...you've done:

-Restart PS3/game

-Delete and redownload the game

-Load a different save file

Hmm...what else can you try...

-Maybe start another playthrough; get to that point to see if black screen still occurs? That might be a huge pain in the ass though since you're at Tali's loyalty mission. D¦

Lol, I don't know at this point. You can just skip over her loyalty mission if the problem persists.

*SPOILERS about the final mission/events during final mission*

*OsMsGs*

If you decide to do that, I don't think (but am not sure) you'll be able to romance her (if that's a concern), and she'll automatically be exiled.

If you like her character and want her to survive the Suicide Mission, then don't send her into the vents (send loyal Kasumi or loyal Legion), don't make her squad leader (make loyal Miranda or loyal Garrus), don't send her to escort the crew back to the Normandy (send Mordin), don't take her with you to the final final battIe (take Jack and Kasumi). I think Tali should survive. If you don't like her, well, you can just let her die. I'm not sure how her death impacts her role in ME3.
