Re: [FEEDBACK REQUESTED] 4.25 Firmware Update Issues

My PS3 does not work at all after downloading this new update. 

I had the fat PS3 model using the default HDD

A wireless connection, updated from 4.21

The update completely finished, system restarted, then the HDD began to respond choppy and slowly, the controller stopped working, and I could not shut down the PS3.  After waiting 2min I unplugged the system, now whenever I try to start it back up the fan inside revs up and sounds like it's about to blow, then the PS3 turns off and the red indicating light blinks.  What the hell happened?

60gb Fat.

Wired.

 

Update was causing random lock ups while playing dust514.

Lock ups increased and restore process was triggered 3-5 times.

Lock ups began to happen as game was loading then progressed to the boot screen of the PS3.

Reset to defaults and problem did not fix.

Problem got worse and a interlaced effect began to occur that looks like a bad video card or something. Green Interlaced to be exact.

Format fixed interlace issue and PS3 will run fine till any load is put on it, then it locks up after a short time.

 

So i guess this firmware has basically left my PS3 unusage. I almost put it away for good, but the format at least got it boot up. At its worst i would hit power and the HDD wouldnt spins, it was just turn green light on and sit there. That problem no longer happens. But i just tried to download dust514 and 10 minutes into DL the screen froze on the DL status.

 

Its off right now. Waiting for update.

 

This is the first real problem i have ever had with my PS3. Look forward to the patch that fixes is. Good luck.

Is SONY slacking at testing the PS3 firmware software before deployment? Do not become like some game developers that have made beta-testers/bug-hunters out of end-users with "Gold" status  software. This will ruin the PlayStation brand and I will hate to see this happen.

 

With that said, my PS3 is still going strong: Discs are still playing; Network connections are being established as usual; Netflix is still streaming fine, etc.

For what it is worth, I don't have PS+

Slim, 160 GB, default.

Wired & Wireless

Updated from 4.21

 

The problem I'm experiencing after the 4.25 update is extremely slow download speeds, wired or wirelessly.  I've ran a wire directly from the modem and router and it doesn't get any better.  I downloaded a 1830 MB demo that took over 7 hours on 9/14.  Currently, I'm downloading a 35 MB update and its already taken over 45 minutes.  I'm an installer for my ISP so I have checked all the connections and modem, spoke to my supervisor about possible plant issues and our system is fine in my area.  I run a speedtest on my laptop and get 36 down, 6 up consistently so the problem seems to be stemming from this update.  Before the update, I could download multiple demos (4-5) within a two hours.

 

Everything else on the system works fine, netflix, online play, disc reading. 

 

Really frustrating because I was thinking about signing up for PS+ for all the good deals, but I'm having second thoughts until this issue is resolved.

 

 Edit:  Also, I am randomly getting a notice that the Playstaion Media Server has been disconnected.  I'm not even sure what that means, but I've never seen it before.

I have the phat 60 with wired internet.  Blank screen at first.  Turned off and unplugged the system, then re-started.  Screen came on, but goes to a "corrupted file storage" message.  I click o.k. for the restore process and restart.  The system comes back up withe the same error message.  I've gone through this process about 6 times now.  How is this going to be resolved?

Possible aftermath of the update. Games and system will scramble after about 5 minutes of being turned on.
