No video after firmware update and RLOD tshooting.
I have a old ps3 fat system and i just updated the firmware from usb thumb drive. Now i cant get any video at all on the system even when i go into safe mode. I have both the AV connection and the hdmi connected but cant get anything.
Also FYI my opinion on the waser or coin fix for the RLOD or YLOD. Dont do it. At the very best it is a short term solution. What you really do when you make this "fix" is you greatly decrease the amount of surface area on the cpu or gpu that is in contact with the heat sink. I did this "fix" on one of my broken ps3's and within minutes of playing a game the fan kicked into high and stayed there. A sure indicator that once this fix is in place the unit was having issues cooling itself off. There are shims out there that might work better because they are copper and have about the same area as the cpu and gpu. The coins or washers though i can say from experiance are not worth even doing as a fix you will be pulling the thing apart in no time to try fixing a ylod again. It might even make the issue worse because the unit cant cool off fast enough and end up in an actual hardware fault. If you have marathon game sessions find an aftermarket cooler to help supliment what is there and prevent a YLOD there are many out there for every ps3 that has been created from cheap to only semi cheap but all for less than a new ps3 game. If your a kid and you cant afford to buy one yourself take the hit and ask for a cooler in place of a game, it will help you get much more life out of your gaming system.
Is this a good question?
