PS3 hard freezes right after launching an app/a game
As in the description
I own a fat PS3 VER-001. It had a period of around 3 years when it was unused.
Now as I powered it up, did all the updates and stuff, chugged in a good ‘ol Sacred 2 disc and fired it. The end. Smooth transition to black screen. TV re-reported 1080p (as if the video resolution was reset) and my PS3 is frozen solid. No reaction to controller, black, 1080p screen (reported resolution stays until PS3 is turned off).
No sound at all
No reaction to controller by any means(couldn’t turn the console off/controller off)
When turned off, with a pwr button, it beeps once, starts blinking the power led and then beeps twice (as if it realized it was frozen) and turns off
No error upon the nesxt power-up is shown
No “fix” related to safe mode helped (filesystem or database rebuilding/formatting)
Happens in all the games I have on physical discs, PS Home and PS Store (with PS Store, Playstation logo is shown and we’re back in the freeze afterwards)
I have found no topic related to that particular issue, please, correct me if I’m wrong
Additional information and findings:
The freeze happens on opening PS Home, PS Store, any PS3 game disc
During the freeze, the PS3 draws constant 90W from the wall
It’s a CECHL04 model and all the voltages are spot-on (within 1%) with the specsheet
Updates pass without an issue
Rebuilding a database or other safe mode hacks did not work, an entirely new hard drive did not work either
The controller does not pair when frozen
Is dit een goede vraag?
