Firmware 4.31 the issue?

2 replies 266 views Edited Nov 22, 2012

Ever since the latest update 4.31 my system has been freezing not just on games but just sitting in the menu as well. I know people have had issues with previous firmware updates so im wondering if anyone has been having issues, and if not then what do you guys think could be the issue?

It is most likely to be a problem with the hard drive, but try using the Restore PS3 System command first. Back up the PS3 hard drive, or at least your save data, if possible before you start.

The issues I have with 4.31 is that now some games don't load at all.  All I see is the spinning disc icon on the top right for a while until the system gives up reading the disc.  There are games that load perfectly fine, so the disc drive is working fine.  Also blu-ray moveis don't read at all.  Very strange how some blu-ray games can play and some can't.  And all this happened right after updating from 4.30 to 4.31.  The problem happened immediately after applying the update.  Sony needs to issue an update ASAP to fix this issue.
