PS3 - no dvd drive.. give a black screen.. HELP!
PS3 - no dvd drive.. give a black screen.. HELP! –
Hi guys, I've a PS3 that had it's entire drive swapped before realising that there was a unique key on the drive so it now just spins and spins and nothing.
When psgroove came out I seen someone running a ps3 modchip on a console without a DVD drive. I can't seem to find the vid though.
Whenever I try to boot homebrew apps I just get a black screen. I've also disconnected the dvd rom altogether and still get the same issue.
I'm tried it with PSgroovePic 1.5, psjailbreak (official) and PS3key (updated to V2) and all give the same result.
Maybe there is a modified psgroovepic hex out there that will help.
All and any help appreciated.
P.S. I've used the same devices and apps on other PS3 phats and it works fine.
From what I've read and understand, the original BD drive (or at least the controller board with the unique ID on it) needs to be connected up again before any programs will even run unless the firmware is modified regardless of whether the drive read discs or not.
PS Jailbreak Compatibility:
Looking for any PS3 firmware, see here:
i have this same problem, today, I busted my fix up bdrom, since the drive's power run thru a PC, it was busted along time ago, that I fix, now (today) The drive is no longer working... and it will give out a black screen...
just have to wait for a fix then
Yeah this sucks. Did anyone else see the vid of someone showing a ps3 running a chip where the ps3 was in pieces and had no dvd rom attached?
I have the exact same issue....anyone have any suggestions?
