Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Ok the way I deal with these situations is to download update 3.15 or newer onto a USB drive. Completely take the PS3 apart right down to the motherboard. Remove the CMOS battery and short the contacts so it forgets everything it was doing. Put the PS3 back together and enter the recovery menu. Select system update and go through the process of updating the PS3 via USB stick. Make sure you create a directory on the USB stick called PS3/UPDATE and place the PS3UPDAT.PUP file in that directory. One thing to consider is reinitialising the hard disk. If you have a sata USB dock for 2.5" drives plug it into your computer, goto administrative tools -> computer management -> disk management. Check where your PS3 disk is listed to see if it says "Online". If it doesn't, right click on the area where it says uninitialised and click initialise disk. This will basically turn it back on. Every time I have done this I have brought PS3's back to life.
Hope this helps and good luck
