Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
This is what i've found
"I successfully updated my legitimately-purchased "demo" PS3 via Ethernet to demonstration firmware 2.10 after entering the password "5202". However, please note that this is STILL demonstration firmware and must be unlocked at EVERY power-on. (Oddly, the password changed to 2464 after the update.)
Even then, many features, including the PlayStation Store and folding@home, are blocked!! After exhaustive research and effort, including replacing and rezeroing the hard drive (no effect), attempting to update via CF and Memory Stick ("No Valid Update info found"), and physical examination of the logic board itself for a reset button or removable jumper (no such luck), I concluded that there is no practical way to do it. The Samsung NAND flash firmware chip is soldered, not socketed, so essentially not replaceable without extremely delicate work (assuming one could find a replacement chip anyway!)."
You cant really do anything at this point. return it to the store and get a refund.

Tips for a great answer:
1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.
2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.
3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.
NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.
