E3 flasher help!!! 1,5,6 lights blinking
I believe that one is where the E3 flasher is grounding out. take a scrap piece of paper and fold it to the size of your hard drive bay basically wrapping the E3 flasher so it doesn't touch the metal housing of the hard drive bay
Check the error code list on the wiki. Most error messages can be fixed by that paper trick. Another problem is the nor clip doesn't sit flush with the NOR chip. Take a nickel (5 cent piece) and place it on top of the nor clip while it's attached to the nor chip. Take some household scotch tape and tape it into place. When you put your PS3 back together it will apply even pressure on the nor clip so it's contacts are good

fixed it thank you.
It was because I needed to reinstall the firmware
How to reinstall the firmware .. ?
1 5 and 6 means not enough pressure on the NOR clip / can't make good connection

I am having the same issues, what does it mean reinstall firmware. I have updated the Samsung update on the flasher again.

Of course I did have the clip taped town and the e3 not touching the metal casing.
I have the slim. CECH21XXXX
Does not work for me.
