[Answered] PS3 Video issue, black screen help?
Ok so i have ps3 slim (cech2001b, firmware 4.31) with a replaced blu ray drive that matches the motherboard. Everything seems to work fine, however, when i go to play a game or try to use the playstation store I get a black screen and have to manually restart the system. The blu ray takes disc's, and ejects, but the XMB shows no activity. So basically my ps3 is a brick, any ideas?
I should also point out that the battery on the motherboard came loose and is no longer attached, so i have to enter the date and time every time i turn on the system.
It will not reflash the same firmware in xmb but it will do it in recovery/safe mode. So that might be the only way to get it back. The last way might be downgrading the ps3 and then install the newest firmware after you q&a the ps3. thanks
