My PS3 still works, but in an unreliable manner since the 4.0 update. Since the update it freezes shortly after starting/loading Disc based games. I've yet to have a problem when using hard drive installed games (but haven't played them for more than an hour or 3).

Didn't I tell you to stop spamming/complaining/crying and do something about it?

You can fix it for less than $50

If you dont have a job, then ask your dad so you can take lawn mower and cut some of your neighbors grass for $10 for each front lawn you do. In one day you'll have more than enough to fix your PS3.

My 80Gb CECHE01 is still kickin'

If you look at PS3's system update history

4.00 Nov 30 2011

3.73 Oct 18

3.72 Sept 20

3.7 Aug 10

3.66 June 23

3.65 June 7

3.61 June 8

3.6 March 10

3.56 Jan 27

The longest gap since the june 8 update is about 2 months, been a month and a half since crappy 4.00 hopefully we're within 2 weeks away. i've had my ps3 sitting unused except to turn on and check for an update for weeks now. such a joke

A couple of my friends experienced some initial issues and slight bugs, but they smoothed out almost instantly. There was some lag at first, but nothing that broke their consoles. 4.00 works great.

Re: Broken PlayStation 3 systems due to the recent 4.00 system update

I have a serious black screen freeze issue since Skyrim release.  Now it happens to any game, app, or movie. I can load a game half the time but quitting freezes 95% of the time.

Im not sure if its a hardware issue or 4.00 firmware.

Whenever i turn the system back on it says i have corrupt data and does a file system restore.

I've tried a file system restore through safe mode and a reformat but neither fixed the problem for more then a couple hours.

That's the way it's set up. You'll always get the message when you chose that option whether it's corrupted or not.
