PS3 black screen FW 3.15 OtherOS Pdaxrom
My PS3 40GB bricked today installing the pdaxrom-ng boot loader. It loaded OK but didn't show any of the installed linux kernels or the pdaxrom-ng-developer CD. It only showed a black screen. I think I can get into the Recovery mode using the RCA cables instead of HDMI. I have to get a new Sixaxis controller to see if I can go beyond the plug controller into USB port prompt. If I can get into recovery mode, what option should I try? I don't mind reformating the HD if necessary. I was trying to repartition the Linux partition to install a new Gentoo kernel.

PS3 Turns Off After 30 Seconds.
Okay, so I just got my 60GB PS3 from my cousin yesterday.
I went to update the PS3 and while it was installing the PS3 just shuts off.
No yellow light or flashing red lights.
So, then i try to turn the PS3 back on and now it wont turn on. This video shows EXACTLY what my problem is.
[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CoJ5ej8BIg]YouTube - PS3 Turns Off After 30 Seconds[/ame] I cant access the recovery menu because the firmware is outdated.
The hard drive was formatted using my PC.
I called Sony and they pretty much told me nothing except for me to shell out $150 to get it replaced.
I know there is a fix, I just cant find it. All help will be greatly appreciated.
