After updating to the 3.56 firmware my PS3 will no longer recognize Blu-ray discs, movies or games. DVDs work fine. Is anyone else having this problem? Any possible way to revert back to the old firmware short of restoring my PS3 entirely?
yes. I can not play anything. I was trying to play bionic commando, it didn't work. Then i tried street fighter 4, and fear. My downloaded games work fine from PSN, and dvd's also work. but I want to play my games. sony needs to fix this a.s.a.p.
hi, me too after updating to the 3.56... big problem whith Bluray .. it's crazy! my PS3 not hacked.
PS3 FAT 40Go original HDD. (pack PS3 40Go and spiderman 3, european version). Vive la France!

I had the same problem when I went to the 3.55 FW. Due to the timing I thought it was the update also. To the point I would have argued with anyone trying to tell me different. My unit is a 60g-Fat unit also. Syptoms were reading DVDs only. Nothing at all on a blu ray. Loading icon would run, but when it stopped nothing would show up in the xmb. I finally broke down and done a thorough cleaning by following the instructions on the lens cleaning video http://www.thief3.com/406/ps3-blu-ray-lens-cleanin
Cant edit posts. anyways.. so far from what i can see nothing helps my problem.. heres symptoms/info
updated to 4.56 fw
blue rays stopped working
Does not show disc icon
does show clock icon up in top right corner, spins for a few then stops.
some sort of steam appearing on discs...
tried all posts for the safe mode, all but full reformat. (waiting to borrow neighbors external hd so i can save all my game data)
tried leaving system off for about 2 hours. turn on same deal.
Gonna try GeneTN's post as soon as i get the tools. if that dont work. will save data and reformat.
Just tried another sugguestion, adding the update via media device, while in safe mode..
Downloaded directly from site, put directly onto flashdrive. booted into safe mode, went to system update...followed instructions...
this really gets my goat....
The data is corrupted.
Now mind you, i havent added no new hd or anything like that, my system isnt modded, its an 80gig fat. prestine condition. and its saying the update for the FW is corrupted..
just called sony. they havent heard about any problems. big surprise. right now making back up's of game data... told them about the file being corrupted they said they'll look into it. by wensday we should have a fixed patch tech guy said.. not so sure we can count on em.. but not sure.
