Hey everyone, today is a very sad day! I have a 60gb phat BC ps3 running rebug cfw 3.55.2, I use Multiman as my backup manager. But something very strange just happened.
I tried to run a backup of Valkyria Chronicles and it got stuck on the loading screen for about 5 minutes, then the PS3 shut off and won't go back on.
When I press the power button it beeps, green light and everything looks like its booting up normally for about 5 seconds then it immediately shuts off and goes to a flashing red light that doesn't stop.
If I press power again it will go to the solid red light, then from there I can try to turn it on again and rinse and repeat.
I have seen others with this issue but mine is a bit unique as the console has certainly not overheated at all, and ran everything perfectly fine just until trying to boot up this one backup.
Could the game files have been corrupted somehow? Messed up NAND perhaps? I cannot even access the recovery menu, and I have tried removing the hard drive, removing and reconnecting the power supply, all to no avail.
I am freaking out!! What can I do? Any good advice or easy DIY fixes?? Please help me, anyone!!
This system NEVER gets hot or overheats, and has arctic silver thermal paste. WTF happened.
I am unsure if this is just a typical brick, or hardware failure. Thanks ahead.
