Ps3 problems updating software
I get a blackscreen and also stuck at the ribbon when the system first starts up... This is apparently happening to people who have a 750GB Hard Drive in their System or a 1TB.
(People who have upgraded their hard drive through their own means) I have a 1TB hard drive in mine.
Copy the update data to the PS3™ system's hard disk drive and perform the update.
I was initially having the same problem as mentioned in another thread (can't load save data). I then deleted my 1.02, redownloaded and then encountered this issue.
We encourage you to check this page from time to time for system software updates and to always maintain your system to use the latest version of the system software.
And what if the issue is more significant than that?
When Microsoft was criticized for early models of the Xbox 360 being afflicted by the “Red Ring of Death,” they responded by extending people’s warranties by 3 years and allowing people to send in their machines for free replacements.
