Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I turn on my 80 gig ps3 with firmware 2.42 it makes a crackling noise for the initial turn on music. Then after done displaying Sony Computer entertainment the HDMI access indicator doesn't turn off it just stays solid. Also while it is solid the wavy background is displayed instead of my XMB home page. Once the XMB homepage is displayed it works fine from then on. Problem started with 2.41 and 2.42 did not help. I have restored factory settings. What should I do?
download v2.40 onto memory stick:
install it via update via storage device.
if you can get it back to v2.40, you are lucky, just look at how many people are having problems with there ps3 at the moment on this forum
