    Only thing I can suggest is to press and hold the on/off button on your PS3 this will make it beep quickly three times and reset it. Failing that I think you can restore to factory settings somewhere.

    Although you'll lose everything on your HD.

    Thank you very much. Im formatting the hd at the moment and restoring to factory settings. Sony told me this would help because they thought it was a software issue... Thanks!

    few version of PES2008 have a problem and your PS3 lazer go to far and don't comeback, you need to back your PS3 in your shop for repair service and call Konami for exchange your copy of the game, i don't that and now i have a new PS3 (thanks Sony) and i wait the Konami answer.

    Very funny.......... I called Sony and they told me that there are a lot of problems concerning the 2.0 firmware when people tried to played 2 different soccer games. A friend of mine had the same problem after trying Fifa2008 online!! ANd now we are screwed. I have to return the PS3 and I hope that Sony will return a new one very quick!

    After all the mocking Sony fanboys gave 360 owners about their machine being unreliable. Now it seems games can destroy a PS3, shocking.

    Only in a few small cases though snoop.... not a firmware update that suddenly bricks lots of 360's or 360's that Murder game discs.... Or in the case of Jack Bauer vs Microsoft a Un-Modded machine being banned from Live because they "Think" it is modded!

    Cant believe im actually defending the PS3!

    Just read someone else saying their refurbished 360 died too. You don't seem to hear about the newer 360's dying though.

    Anyway, off-topic :)
