[Answered] 3.55 black screen after format help?
Hi, I have a new hard drive, clean. A ps3 in 3.55 connected in HDMI. I put the new drive on ps3 (the drive have MBR). I booted the ps3 and a screen appears and say that the system software cannot work properly and it ask for update (with START + SELECT).
I did it with a usb and ofw 3.55 firmware, checking OK.
A new screen with formatting confirmation (START + SELECT) hold for 5sec : formatting the drive OK (100%).
Then the ps3 seems to do something but from here I have no longer display, black screen. (TV dont show "NO SIGNAL") If I push the ps button, I can hear sounds when navigate in menu, I guess I'm on the licence agreement menu, before installing firmware.
Do you guys have any idea how to fix that ? Is my ps3 dead ?
Have you tried the recovery menu by chance if you could get on there. Check out racer's thread if you think your PS3 is bricked or soft bricked. I think he may be able to fix it for you.
