Since you tried the restore and that and it didn't work call Sony up.

I had the exact same thing happen to me and I posted a similar thread a week ago.  I took mine back for and exchange but it happened to a few other people as well.  Mine was the 40 GB bundled with Spiderman 3 on Blue-Ray.

If you have warranty left, congratulations! This won't affect you.

If not, join the club, you owe the Sony Mafia another $150 in system protection money.

We might start a class-action suit, but by "we" so far it's just "I", and I bet it doesn't go far.

It would seem that this happens rather often. Cuz I'm just starting to have this problem, but there was a weird addition to my glitch. When I select a game demo I downloaded off of the PS network, it starts up ok, but when I try quiting the game it just freezes, sorta speak.  The game continues to show the intro demo play & start menu but it won't quit it.Robot surprised I thought it was the blue ray player that has gone bad but not really sure anymore. Doing a complete system wipe right now & gonna find out if that fixes the problem. If not, what then?? fork over money 2 the PS mafia??? I don't really know if it's bcuz of an update crash cuz it started doing just when an update was offered. Thought the update would fix it but it kept doing the same thing.

Update: No class-action suit after all, turns out Sony has been guarding against that kind of thing(y'know...justice, customer service, etc.) since they got their asses handed to them when PS2s stopped working back in '02. Anyway, I just now sent my PS3 in to Best Buy's Geek Squad, and reccomend you all do the same, they charge far less, inspection/diagnosis is free, and you won't be handing money over to the swine that programmed your system to break in the first place.
