PS3 40GB looping update... –
I have a 40Gb ps3 (CECHG04) with problems.
The ps3 just run fine with the 2.70 firmware.
i had a problem with the bluray drive, so i removed the drive to repair... and i lost the drive... but the ps3 works in this time.
the problem came when i tried to update to 3.41.
it stops on 70% and then i restart the ps3 and the ps3 try to install again, with the same error (i think is the 8002F14E)
then i read somehere that itīs possible to recover the system by removing the HDD drive and format the drive on PC in FAT32.
I made this process, but now nothing happens, the ps3 turn on (gree led) and after 20 sec turn off.
I can ativate the service menu but i tried all options witout results...
What i have to do to fix, i don't mind to keep the 2.70 firmware (it's good for linux)..
