Update 4.31 killed my PS3

[ Edited ]
50 replies 11895 views Edited Oct 31, 2012

I had to update my PS3 to use netflix. Went ahead with the update. System shut down and never came back on. I tried unpluging the system. When I do the red light comes on. I hit the power button it turns green for 2 seconds it beeps shuts off. Sounds like the hard drive of an old computer turning off. Not loud but audible.  I have the 3001b model. Help!!!  I tried holding the power button to go into safe mode but it shuts off in 2 seconds.

A lot of this is going around. I have even read that Sony has pulled back on the 4.30 update due to its issues. I mean **bleep** are they doing. Don't they test the firmware before releasing it.

We are not sure, It had been a little while since an update was done. We could not go on netfilx with out installing the update. But we used it for netflix 2 days ago and it was working. I wish I could remember.

i think there might be something dodgey cos as im updating via safe it took a long time to search for the software on my usb and to prepare.

My ps3 is acctually stuck on 99% and its been like that for a while.

Installing was quick its over now and everything works perfectly the only thing was once it got to 50% installed it restarted with the ps3 logo like always and then it did it again but iv checked the current software which says 4.31

WHEN UPDATING INSTALL ON YOUR USB THEN ON YOUR PS3, INSTALL IT IN SAFEMODE
