[Answered] Blank blue screen when starting PS3 help?
When I start my PS3, I hear a beep from my speakers and I am then presented with a blue screen. If I then hit the PS button on the controller followed by 'X,' for A moment I see a screen that has the options "Yes" and "No" on it, and then it is just a black screen.
When I go into the recovery menu and select option three "Restore File system," It gives me error 8001002B. I took the original 80GB hard drive out and did a full format as exFAT in Windows 7.
I do not have a solid yellow light at any time. This all started occurring after going from the otherOS firmware to stock 3.55. When it was in the process of flashing to OFW 3.55 it gave me a HDD error I believe.
According to Sony's site, error code 8001002B means "Failed to access data from an external storage device (i.e., external USB hard drive, media card, etc.)." Their recommendation says:
- Try removing and then reinserting the storage device.
- Try a different external storage device.
- If multiple devices fail, this could be an issue with the PlayStation 3 and you will need to send it in for service. Click here for service instructions.
