I have the first generation PS3 80G. Never had any problems until I installed the update, system was working fine.
Problems occuring: System will come on but will not go past the PS3 welcome screen. After a few restarts, the screen will say the system hasn't been turned off correctly and will do a scan for corrupted files. It does this every other time I turn the system on and it even erased all of my memory without doing a system restore.
Downloaded games from the playstation store will download but will not show up when you scroll over to games. It's the same thing with photos, friends list, etc.
Trophies will not display either.
Tried logging on to the web browser. System will crash and freeze and will not let you turn it off. I had to physically turn it off using the off switch in the back of the system.
I talked to support earlier today and they're telling me there is no way the firmware caused this. It did and no one can tell me different. I don't use my system like that for it to mysteriously go bonkers, Ever since I did that update these problems are coming out like crazy!
After latest update, I seem to lose sound on each startup of my PS3.
Only holding power button down for ten seconds at shut down and start up, so it detects a new HDMI connection is what gets the sound on the system working again. But the minute you turn the system off, there is no sound again on a standard startup of the machine.
I too am affected.
I have the ps3 160 gb system and conected via ethernet and hdmi. When I went to install upadte everything went fine then the screen went blank and had to force to shut off ps3. Then it came on with no picture and I had to wiggle the hdmi cable to get it to work and sound qaulity is terrible. Also it destroyed all of my sign in info and all of my data had to reinstall mlb.tv and nfl sunday ticket and on nfl sunday ticket the red zone channel streams terrible and when i shut off my ps3 and turned on again it again lost picture and had to wiggle hdmi cable. But worst of all is sound and hdmi wiggling. I don't like it! Now my streaming is awfull!
Nothing to report.
PS3 slim: CECH 3012B -> with HDD upgraded to Samsung 640GB (the original HDD is now RIP & was used in PC)
wired internet connection 1MBPS
I am still in 4.11 due to Batman Arkham City. I am NOT glad to hear BAD feedbacks about this new update. I will not update yet (because I have had my HDD changed & this update could likely screw it) but I also lose out on my PSN, it seems that I have a choice here: 1) Update and most likely get my PS3 screwed or 2) Don't update and you won't get PSN. hmm, every which way is a bad choice. And why can't i get into PSN when I'm not updated? I don't want to update...can't I just get into PSN instead?
