I have a 250Gb slim with default HDD and wireless internet connection. I believe i was on 4.21. I'd like to point out that on calling customer services/tech support the guy on the other end of the phone told me there was no way the software update caused my ps3 to crash, despite it happening to mine and my friends ps3's after updating.

Have an issue with the PS3's web browser. When a flash ad was going to pop up, I noticed that the option "Do not display again" had been added when it asks "Do you want to run the plugin?" So obviously, I selected no and ticked "Do not display again." Now, flash is gone entirely and can't be re-enabled. Is there any way to go about getting it enabled again?

Hey guys, for those of you having similar issues with 4.30, did you have these issues before you updated to 4.25? Or was it just with 4.30 that you had these issue?

ps3  won't turn on anymore. The controllers can't even turn the system on. It lights up as normal, but no signal output to TV and controllers no longer connect to it.

Sadly 4.3 did not fix my system. It just doesnt play disk media anymore. Thank you 4.25. The guest I never asked to have who left the problem that will never go away.

Me too. Haven't had a single problem with my fat 60gb until I tried to install this 4.30 update. I got the "yellow light of death" even though it's a blinking red light.

I had no problems on 4.21, everything after it nothing but problems. Gamestop is running a double trade in value on consoles until the 28th. Guess I'll be trading my 160 slim ps3 in towards something else???
A side note I was a diehard Sony fanboy until this happened!!

- CECHE01 (Fat 80GB MGS4 bundle) with 500GB Hitachi HD (original 80GB died just after 1 year)

- wired 15Mbps ADSL

- update from 4.20 to 4.25

 

Problem: dead optical drive.  It will not read any discs at all (PS3 game, Bluray movie, DVD movie, audio CD).  The disc will load, the circle spinny icon at the top right will spin continously and the disc never shows up.  I also don't hear the optical drive motor spinning up either.  1 day prior to the update, I was watching Aliens Bluray fine.  I've never had any disc read errors or laggy/frozen games prior to this 4.25 update so the optical drive was not slowly dying prior to this.

 


I just updated from 4.25 to 4.30 since I really have nothing to lose at this point with the dead optical drive resulting from the 4.25 update.  The good news is that it didn't get any worse than before.  The system still boots fine, I can play PSN downloaded games like Super Startdust HD like before.  The bad news is that my optical drive is still dead, so my PS3 is still 95% useless since I don't really play those PSN downloaded games.  

 

I wonder how big or small this problem on a worldwide scale.  If it was really big and widespread, I figure that all the larger gaming news/blog sites would have reported it or ran an article about it by now.  Anyway, at this point I'm not confident that I'm going to get a fixed firmware from Sony.  I suspect they will be too busy dealing with the fallout from the lv0 key leak.  I just have to decide if I want to try buying a laser assembly online and replace it on my own since the rest of my PS3 still works or sell off all my PS3 games and buy a stand alone non-Sony BluRay player for my movies.
