E3 Flasher Problem. Brick?
So I got my E3 flasher yesterday, I bought the limited edition one. I got it all installed and setup. I plugged in the dock, the dock they included had smoke coming out of it once I turned it on. I thought it was going to set on fire. The dock is faulty. I then tried with another dock, the PS3 turns on and that's it, there's no video. It turns off if you hold the on/off button. I tried resetting video but it doesn't do anything.
I think I may have bricked my PS3, I turned it on with the E3 flasher installed (No SD card inserted) The pins were in the default position. It didn't have the memory card in it. I was just turning it on to see if the lights come on, indicating the installation was successful. I removed the E3 flasher and put in it's original hard drive. Didn't do anything.
So, am I correct in thinking I now have a bricked PS3 with no backup?
Thanks in advance.
