Did your PS3 get bricked after the latest Firmware Update 4.45? Not to worry, here is a quick fix to help you out until Sony officially solves this problem.
Below are the steps
- Power off the PS3 (just a soft power off, not via the main switch at the back)
- Hold down the power button until it resets three times.
- The first rest is normal mode, the second is video reset mode (for situations where you don’t have a display)
- Finally, the third reset is called ‘Safe Mode’ and will bypass the broken firmware and to allow you to re-update.
