As much as I like my new Slim I have experienced several system freezes last night where the only means of recovery is to switch it off at the plug. This has mainly happened while on the XMB. The lights on the controller all flash to indicate a lack of connection with the PS3 and cannot reconnect until I power cycle the system. Now to figure out if this is a issue with the PS3, with 3.0 or something related to my HDD swap.
I have re-synced the controller several times but it does appear that it is simply losing the connection with the PS3. On restarting the controller remains paired with the PS3.
Same here,Problem was the update crashed while downloading but after a few tries of trying to install update it finally managed it.
However after that the xmb kept freezing ,quick call to sony fixed it.Restore PS3 System.Works like a dream now.
