For Sale:
Original PS3, semi-working

Will Ship To: US48

This is PS3 is in perfect working condition, with only one small problem. It doesn't want to update. I've had it since Xmas 2006 and until whatever update it tried to install recently, it was working like a charm still. The console gets stuck at the screen error screen pictured and won't do anything else. I've tried getting it into safe mode to restore it and other tricks found through Google, but nothing has worked. If you're a wizard with this kind of stuff and can fix it, you'll be getting an original fat PS3 that can play PS2 games.

Aside from being out of warranty due to age, I have opened the system a couple times to dust it.

It comes with what you see in the picture: the power cable.

Paypal only.
No trades.
Please send a PM with any questions.
I have 100% positive feedback.

You should probably post the firmware version it's currently running.

in the end i reopened the console and reversed all the ribbons, but i still got the error,so i put another hdd in the original one that was not formated the one that would not let me go into recovery and just went straight to update and this time around the update completed.

Not the best grammar or sentence structure but someone fixed it like that.

Open Console
Reverse all Ribbons
Try to Update
Put Original HDD in?
Profit?

Will it still play games without the update? Say, if I bought this and put LBP in, would it let me play without error? Same with PS2 games?
