First of all, I am using an older style PS3 from the MGS 80GB Bundle, with a 500GB Samsung HDD, and updated to 4.10. I've had very few problems until this newest FW!
After updating to 4.10, I'm having the problem where no PS3 game disc, when inserted, will show up as an icon on the XMB. I was going crazy cleaning my PS3, vacuuming the vents, and eventually thinking I was going to have to buy a completely new PS3 system. I tried some DVD Videos, and PS2 DVDs and those show up just fine, so I had just figured my BD Laser was dead.
Then while I had a demo running (from the HDD of course), I backed out to check an incoming MSG and I saw the Twisted Metal icon...?!?! I thought it was just a fluke and started it. The game ran beautifully so I then assumed the PS3 was just "having a moment" so I quit out of game. Icon still present. I was relieved. Then I rebooted.. ICON GONE!!! I can now only play PS3 discs AFTER starting a game from the hdd and backing out to the XMB.
I saw some other people were having this problem after updating to FW4.10 as well. I'm wondering if it's only on the 80GB PS3 original model.
If anyone else has this system and has updated, please hard reboot your system and see if you have this issue. Thanks
We need a fix for this Sony!
I had the same issues around Christmas with my fat PS3 and my regular blu ray player. Someone recommended a laser lens cleaner like this one: http://www.amazon.ca/Maxell-BR-LC-Blu-ray-Lens-Cle
I really don't think it's the laser. Like I said I've never had so much as a skip or other dying laser related issues.
This happened exactly after I updated to 4.10. Sure it could be a coinidence, but since I've seen some other posts about this lately, I highly doubt it.
When started from the XMB during a running demo it works 100% perfectly. No skips in the streaming FMV or anything.
