Hold your power button then when safe mode comes up restore the file system. If that doesn't work. Restore your system. Don't get rid of that system. It is fixable. In fact sony should fix it for free because its they're fault. They put that update out and mine did the same. Its back up now. I did what i suggest you do. Your bud jacob kiser :smileyhappy: good luck brother. Hope your backward compatible system gets back online. Add me btw i can help you with ps3 issues and I'm a good gamer lol

Well you know how companies are these days alwasy giving you a general statement with nothing specific or concrete and will do their best to shift the blame to something/someone else just so that they don't have to take care of it. 

 

Anyways if you need more details on maintaining or fixing your PS3 console look at this thread.

2days ago it did its thing now just freezes only way I can get it to work at all is to factory restore that means all the stuff I had is gone. Now I have to pay 100 bucks or more to send it in to see if they can fix it when they broke it!!!!!!!

yeah im having problems with mine too as soon as i turn on my ps3 it freezes before anything can even happen so i have to go in an restore it which is annoying to do everytime i want to play a game..especially because i always have to sign into my account over and over again..its annoying and it the new super slim model so i thought it might be that but then i realized other people were having the same problem.
