I turned my PS3 Slim on for the first time in a few weeks and it went to update to 4.31. I left it for a bit but when I came back my monitor was blank. I figured the PS3 just turned off but the green light was on. I tired turning it off, resetting the video but nothing happened. I tried booting into safe-mode but nothing happened. I can't connect my controller during any of these either. Any ideas?
It is a 3001A model.
I think you turned off your PS3 when it was doing the transciition from downloading to installing the update, the very thing they tell you not to do. It does tend to go black for a short period of time. How quickly when you noticed the monitor is blank and the PS3 is still on did you turn it off?
