PS3 supposedly "bricked" by Kmeaw
PS3 supposedly "bricked" by Kmeaw –
This has been discussed on another forum between myself and a user of that forum.
His PS3 specs are:
PS3 40GB CECHG03 - Region 2 (EUR)
"this guide screwed my ps3 up i was on 3.41 ofw and it says in the guid you can isntall straight to kmeaws cfw well thats what i did and now everytime i try to boot anything i get black screen no matter what it is and i have even gone to 3.56 ofw and everything still gives me a black screen thx alo"
"i installed kmeaws cfw then tried running the fix permissions it wouldnt load tried running psn home black screen then tried a demo of the store still a black screen so went to ofw 3.55 formatted hard drive and tried a demo again still black screen psn home etc etc so i went back to kmeaws cfw installed multiman 3.55 pkg and ftp server both give me black screen ..... long story short anything homebrew related and game related would not run at all and its still the same on 3.56 ofw and i dont know how to fix it "
"ive replaced the hard drive also still the same "
Asked him about PKG files-- if they would install and not run or just not install.
"everything would instal fine but wont run "
Any insight? This is the first I've heard.
He's got a dead BD-drive or the logic board isn't hooked up. This is exactly what happens when this is true.
Yeah, he stated that his BD laser was dead, but that he was on 3.41 OFW before... He also claimed that he "had no jailbreak dongle" so I do not know if this was a pre-existing issue... But what would be causing his PS HOME and Demos not to work when they were working prior?
More then likely the BD-rom was on the way out anyway and the firmware couldn't update the logic board. Without the logic board, the PS3 goes into safety mode. XMB will boot, but everything will blackscreen. Same type of thing that happens with the x360 if you pull the connection to the DVD-rom (except the x360 won't even boot. Just gives you an error screen).
Ahh I see. He states that his Music and Videos still work, just not any type of application (Demo, PSN Home, Homebrew, etc). Is that still sounding like the same issue to you? (Glad you answered this thread, was hoping you would haha)
Yep. Music and videos stored on the HDD or on an external HDD would still work, all applications will not.
Thanks a bunch for clearing that up. So Kmeaw is still brick free. Feel free to close this thread if you wish
