Hey guys i had this same problem 2 times the second time being tonight
and i fixed it both times! I don't usually post on forums but im just
trying to help out here i know it can be really frustrating when this
happens. Anyways what i did to fix the problem is lift the ps3 a couple
inches off the ground and gently drop it so the dust or w.e it is in
the ps3 settles n fixes. The second time this happened (tonight) i
tried dropping it again and it didn't work, it really got me mad, but
then i tried dropping it again this time upside down and after 1 drop
it worked. anyways hope this helps :) If i am helpful to you, please rate me. Good luck!
