I got a PS3 of craigslist from a guy in my area (about 25 miles). It is an original 60GB piano black model with a card reader.
Anyhow, after the 3.55 system update it will not play Blu-Rays anymore. According to what I read online from searching, there was a problem with something like 1% of PS3 have a "bricked" Blu-Ray player after the update.
The drive still works, it just only plays PS2 (DVD) games, did not try any PS1 games.
What I am wondering is there any chance that upgrading the machine to system software 3.60 which came out would "unbrick" the Blu-Ray player?
If not is there anything else I could try?
Further more, if there is nothing else I can do, can someone point me to a reputable repair facility that can fix the system, the system is OUT OF WARRANTY
Thanks for any help in advance.
