Last night, my PS3 stopped powering up as normal. I had been having issues a few nights before, but was able to go online and play COD without issue. When attempting to turn on today, it wouldn't go to the home screen. I attempted to reset to defaults in safe mode to no avail. After that, I attempted rebuilding the database, but received an error saying that no hard drive was recognized. I tried a spare hard drive, and received the same message. I called Sony and was told to try doing a system update via a flash drive. The system will run the update, but gets stuck at 99%. I left it for over 8 hours, and it's still doing that. I am unable to boot the console back into safe mode. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this issue without sending away for service? Thanks!
