Playstation won't work after new update!

11 replies 3366 views Edited Mar 23, 2013
So I updated my ps3 and it took forever and when I woke up after it apparently downloaded my ps3 was not working right! The lights were on but nothing on my screen. My controller won't sync with my ps3 and I'm not able to turn of my console without having to unplug it. I've tried holding the power button down to restart it and nothing after all the beeps. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong or how to fix this. It worked fine before the new update and now it's a huge paperweight till I can figure out what to do with it. Any help will be appreciated.

What type of PS3 do you have? Fat, slim, super slim?

I have a slim as well. The update took a couple of minutes for me, and I haven't had a problem. If you still have it on. Pull the plug if it's not responding, then plug it back in and see if it turns back on.

It turns on but nothing pops up and my controllers won't connect to it and when it turns on I can't turn it back off. The allowed me to eject black ops but that's the only thing that's working properly.

You should call Sony tech support. Explain to them that after the update the system isn't responding. It's weird that some people are having problems after the update while others aren't. That could be the reason why they haven't released the update on their site. Touch the top of the system and see if it's hot, it may of over heated. If it is hot, give it an hour or so to cool down then try again, but regardless call Sony support.

Yeah it over heated. I would call Sony, it's your only option at this point.

Wait...did you at least try doing a video reset? Hold down the power button for 5 seconds. If that doesn't work, then boot it in safe mode and do a file restore.
