Re: System wont restore itself

Hi ALL

 

PROBLEM

 

if you read the other forums you will notice alot of gamers have simular problems since the 4.3 update ,it seams to kill your HHD im calling it the SONY VIRUS or SONY AIDS (i dont want to cause any offence ) but its the only way i can explain the evil SONY update 

 

If SONY would like to coment on this please do as im dying to know whats happened and if you can explain ill retract my staitment about the Virus comment

 

SOLUTION

 

The only solution that works at the moment that i know of because i have done it is by replacing your HHD and losing all your off line data ,it then works like a brand new machine which now ive reinstalled profiles and game updates etc (fifa13 COD 3 Black Ops etc) im back on line and all works fine

 

PLEASE REPLY SONY

 

I am a member of SONY have emailed SONY and they just ask to call ,so i phoned them and just end up waiting in QUEs but cant get through and it not a fre line

 

Why hasnt there been any acknowledgment by SONY of this problem ,there should at least be something on their website to at least say "We are looking into it " or say anything but to say nothing.

To me that shows they do give a F£*K about there customers (and after ive bought all the playstations ,TVs ,Surround sounds ,video recorders ,DVD players ,Hi Fi ,Sony Erickson Mobile phones etc etc you get the picture but now they can kiss my a$%s) if you can not even rspond to valid customer.

How do I get into the PS3 safe mode, as I can not get past the restore part.

Re: System wont restore itself

I used the PS3 safe mode feature and managed to get it to work ..... Eventually :smileysad:. Basically the only option which resolved the 'Restore Loop Bug' (as it shall now be known), was to carry out a full system format. Luckily I did not have much on the system as its my second system, but it does mean you have to re-download everything.

Re: System wont restore itself

To get into safe mode........turn everything off, even unplug at wall. Then plug everything back on and when the red light is on showing that it is standby mode, press and hold the power button. Youw ill heer a beep after 5 secs, keep holding the power button until a second beep is heard which will cause the system to turn itself off again. THEN, press and hold the power button again, you will hear another beep after 5 secs, keep holding button until you hear 2 beeps which should be another couple of seconds later, and then let go of the power utton. You will now be in safe mode with a set of 6 different options. Ta da. There you go, safe mode
