[Answered] Got a PS3, is all kinds of messed up help?
Ordered a PS3 online listed as only having a "Dead bluray diode"
Opened it up, The BDkey is missing off the bottom of it, the ribbon mount on the motherboard is broken, its the wrong size HDD and modle, AND its stuck in a FW loop.
Now. On the last PS3 I had with a FW loop problem. Was a simple fix. For the last PS3, I simply connected the HDD to a PC, Formatted the HDD (Since all the update data was on the HDD and lack of bluray was making it loop) And put it back in to fix the problem.
But, This PS3, I formatted the HDD, Now when I turn it on, the video feed never boots up, And the screen just stays completely black, TV doesn't even pickup a signal and keeps saying "HDMI3" Also... Tried to enter service mode, Appears to not work.... So... A bit lost on this...
I do plan to return it... but I was simply curious about what would fix this black screen... Pull the memory battery or something to let it forget what it was trying to do?...
It was worth a try I guess.
