SOURCE: i attempted to update the
If the power button hold doesn't work...try this...,
Take the clip out that holds the drive. Take the screw out but leave the drive inside.
When the update begins, pull your drive out. You will get an error message and it tells you to restart your system to try again. Instead, let the time run out, and your screen will go blank for about 30 seconds until it starts back up telling you that you need to reformat the drive. (If you don't get this message after 30 secs the first time, YOU HAVE TO REPEAT IT till it does. Then put your drive back in again making sure your controller is plugged in (wired in with USB) and press the PS3 button on the controller. It will then ask you to either press start and select at same time OR PS3 Button PRESS START and SELECT. Do not agree to any user agreements!! Make sure you hit cancel and it will reset to the startup screen.
* Just wondering....did you recently open your ps3?

Is there sound? If so, then maybe your video settings got mixed up. Try the video reset.
When the PS3 is in standby mode (red LED lit), hold the Power "button" until it beeps for booting, keep holding until it beeps again (not to turn it off).
If done correctly you should see something again (480p resolution) allowing you to change settings.
I hope this will help you out.
