After going into factory service mode I installed the 2.30 PUP and lv2diag.self (file1) onto a USB and turn on the PS3. After about 4 minutes the green light started flashing and nothing seemed to be happening. I left it for about 10 minutes until I turned it off.
Now when I turn on the PS3 its on for about 5 seconds then turns off by itself. The difference is there is no flashing lights or beeps. Light goes green for about five seconds, light goes red.
Any ideas whats happened? Can it be fixed?
PS. I can still get into recovery mode if thats any help.
Try Install OFW 3.50 from Recovery menu.
if it does not work, put it in FSM mode, put FSM in Self + OFW 3.5 or any other OFW (less than 3.55 to do the Remarry)
