Ps3 problems updating software and consolidating debt
I get a blackscreen and also stuck at the ribbon when the system first starts up... This is apparently happening to people who have a 750GB Hard Drive in their System or a 1TB.
(People who have upgraded their hard drive through their own means) I have a 1TB hard drive in mine.
I last installed 1.02 in early June and it worked fine.
All you need to do is download it to your USB drive and power up the PS3 in safe mode and install update from USB.
To update your PS3 you will either need an internet connection to your PS3 or access to a computer with internet and a USB memory stick.
I sincerely hope this helps out anyone trying to get up to speed on the situation and any affected by this glitch. Updated this post (4th bullet point) with that advice.(Repost from the PS3 subreddit post, thought it might help here too.)Step 2: Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the PLAYSTATION 3 is powering on.
Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.The System update is stored inside the PS3 NAND Chip This update ensures new game's run smoothly, and also allowing Sony control to allow only their products to run on your console.
