Thank You for anyone that can shine a light on my issue. The console is a phat nand system. I have a bad BD drive. Takes the disc but will not load it. And was on CFW 3.55 and used the card reader to get into Factory Service Mode then did the remarry plus downgrade to 3.41.
I am in Factory service mode, got NG error something about P-block. Than tried it with downgrade to OFW 3.30 same thing. Did that a couple of times. Error with NG. Then changed Logic board thinking maybe the board was bad. NG again. So I was thinking about going back to 3.55 OFW. But now system will not boot into menu or recovery menu.
I tried to get out of FSM all I get is turn on 10 seconds turn off no lights blinking but a solid green so its not an overheating issue. I also checked my HDD and even reformat it to FAT32 on PC..I also tried to use the Lv2diag.self (2nd file) to get out of FSM.
So its stuck in FSM with OFW 3.30. but I can run the remarry process just keep getting error. but am not able to boot into XMB or recovery menu.
If its in fsm just load 3.55 whatever fw to the root of a usb. not a ps3 folder just the pup file. Also on the root put the update lv2diag.self file.
Turn off ps3, put the usb in farthest right usb and start ps3 as normal. It should force a update this way assuming your in fsm still. The systems green light should power on for around 4 minutes and then start flashing green when done.
At this point you should be able to start system. You will still be in fsm but the xmb will be there and you will be on whatever fw you loaded. Try the fsm lvddiag exit again.
If you need the lv2diag file i can give it to you. BTW recovery menu cant be accesed in fsm which is why you cant get to it. Im not sure where I got my lv2diag update file so I may have to send it to you.
I finally got the system to respond but I had to use the remarry files from 3.15 instead of 3.55. I have no idea why the older version worked and not the newer. But I have managed to remarry my BD drive and also was able to exit FSM. Then update to OFW 3.55.
I tried your suggestion first though pepsicolla but did not work at all. Don't ask my why I came up with using the older.. but it ended up fixing everything. Now I can read DVD, BD games but no BD movies, is that normal?
I had followed that post as well but did not work in my case, like I said in previous reply it only worked when I used the remarry 3.15. I do not plan on using it for Blu ray.. as long as the game disc are reading I happy. Do I have to put in a Blu ray movie?
