My PS3 slim is a 250GB one the motherboard is a sur-001 and it did once have CFW installed but because I was dumb I updated to 3.56 to go online ( this was a while back ) and now I regret it. So I need this PS3 to work as I am wanting to downgrade it either with a e3 flasher or get someone else to do it. Now my problem is that everytime I turn the unit on it just gives a black screen? Before this it said that 'The ps3 cannot be read and the system software must be reinstalled, press and hold PS button I think to restart system' So I did and after this there is just a black screen. It also said that insert a usb stick with firmware 'ERR' yeah it said that and not 3.56 or later strange right?
What I have tried
- Inserting another Hard drive but still the same thing
- Formatted all my hard drives on PC and tried inserting them and still doesn't work
- Tried without the hard drive in ( read online that it works )
Please anyhelp to save this poor ps3 will be appreciated
