Hi all. Here is my problem. I got a ps3 recently from a yard sale and when I took it home and hooked it up I got a screen that says: The system software cannot be run correctly. Press the ps button to try to restart the system. If the system cannot be restarted, you must reinstall the system software.
Connect storage media that contains update data of version 4.20 or later, and then press the start and select buttons at the same time, For information on how to obtain update data, refer to the sce web site for your region.
When I restart I get the same message. So I download version 4.20 copy it onto a usb flash drive put it in ps3 and get a screen that says: No applicable update data was found. Insert storage media containing version 4.20 and so on.
What am I doing wrong please?
