So I updated a 60g fat to kmeaw. It all went fine but the disc icon is gone from xmb, although i still have the small spinning disc icon on top right of screen. I had a disc in the tray when I did the update if its relevant. Is there any way to reverse this? Now I cannot play dvds,cds or bluray and I'm well pissed off. Any help would be appreciated.
only a thought... have you replaced a new bluray drive or gave it knock as it might of loosened a cable as i replaced my drive and the disc icon wasn't there but when i checked a cable was slightly out... just a process of elimination really.
If it was working fine before you switched to CFW then you probably got a bad flash. Go into the Recovery Mode and re-flash the CFW using the menu. You can also try reformatting the HD, but be sure to BACK UP everything before you try that as it will all get erased.
1. With the system in standby mode. Press and hold the power button down until the system turns on and then off again. Release the power button.
2. After about 1 - 2 seconds press and hold the power button again, until you hear 2 consecutive beeps. Release the power button. During this step you will actually hear three beeps. There will be one single beep then a short delay followed by 2 consecutive beeps. Only release the power button after you hear the 2 consecutive beeps.
At this point the PS3 Recovery Menu will be shown on the screen.
Try to restore the HD or reflash your current firmware version.
