black screen, controller doesnt connect. Help?
black screen, controller doesnt connect. Help? –
Hi, my problem is that when i turn on PS3(phat 37gb Kmeuw CFW). I get nothing except black screen. First i thought my HDMI cable broke and tried with AV, but it didnt helped(yes, i reseted it with turn on/off button and yes, TV works fine). Another problem that occurred is that a wireless controller doesnt connect, its like PS3 wasnt there at all(tried with both controllers).
i should mention that recovery meniu works fine, but "Restore File System" doesnt help and when i click on "Restore PS3 System" a message pops up "Can not Access Hard Drive", tried it multiple times.
Maybe someone knows a solution for this prob?
P.S. Sorry for my bad English skills, hope you understood the problem, if you have any more questions write to me or in this thread...

Dead/corrupt HDD is a possibility considering the age of the 40Gb model. Pull the HDD and connect to PC via internal SATA or external USB-to-SATA, and perform a surface test of the drive, if any errors are present the drive should be replaced.
An attempt to fix corruption could be to zero out the hdd via PC then reformatting/reinstall fw. Hopefully data stored on the hdd is not of concern.
Hi, I've the same problem with my PS3. Shortly before my PS3 broke and showed the black screen, my drive also broke. Do you think these problems are related to each other?
Another question: Is there any tutorial to "to zero out the hdd via PC"?
Ok, I fixed the problem. I launched the "Recovery Mode" and there "2. Restore Default Settings".
