Broken Blu-Ray Drive? –
my PS3 behaves strange when I update a FW (no matter if OFW or CFW).
When reaching 40% it jumps directly to 100%.
My drive cant read any discs anymore, too, although it was able to read normal DVDs.
Do you guys know a solution to my problem?
Your Blu-ray laser is dead, that's all.. The red laser for CD's and DVD's is still fine. Ya can get one off Ebay but compatability for discless is really good now so there's not much need. It's hard to tell how long a replacement will last hence it's not worth the risk, since ya could buy a YLOD and take the laser outta that (Ebay tends to have refurb's that are un-reliable for quality).
I don't think the laser is dead because since the updates started to behave strange the red laser worked fine ( i have a dual laser )
the version number isn't changing, too.
e.g. when i update from 3.55 ofw to 3.55 kmeaw, the system info doesnt show "3.55-kmeaw", just the regular "3.55"
does somebody know what checks are made around 39% - 40% ?
i dont want to buy a new laser for nothing, as i think that the logic board is broken
You should check out the Playstation site.Many people are having problems after the update.
could i have a link to the problems`?
It isnt supposed to change ... its still firmware 3.55. The only difference is that you will have "Install Package Files" and "/app_home/PS3_GAME" in Game.
