Ps3 prompted me to update to the latest version of their software. now im stuck on the home screen with no icons or anything. does anyone know how i can fix this problem?
I have the same problem. Ps3 stuck on blank screen. I try to reset it and still nothing. Turn off the wireless and still nothing. Please help.

I fixed this problem on my ps3 by turning off my internet router, so the ps3 didn't get any signals from it. Then i turned on the console and it worked fine! Then I plug the router back again, and the ps3 hooked automaticly up with the internet. Then a message came up that told me it was something wrong with the harddrive system, i pressed "OK" and then it started to download and fix the problem and restart. After the restart I got the same message about the harddrive and I just started the download one more time, and now it works fine!:D
Hope this helped you to solve this problem^^

1) Follow this link and download the latest FW update
2)Transfer the update on to a USB flash drive/pen
to connect to the PS3. Stick it in.
3) Access the PS3 Recovery/Safe Mode. This will help to do so:
4) Choose Option 6 - System Update. Should locate the FW file on the USB pen.
