I just love these "post all your problems" master threads. It's a very economical way for everyone's questions to get ignored.
Here's my problem, and it could be a big one:
I turn on my PS3 with the controller like usual. It reads my Warhawk disc and gives that background wallpaper, again like usual. I take it out and insert Michael Clayton because I'm going to watch it tonight.
My PS3 recognizes that a bluray disc is inserted. I click on it, and it asks if it's ok for the bluray disc to access the internet. I say "yes". Then....................
Nothing. Just black screen. So I try to eject the disc and it won't let me. I flip the switch on the back of the PS3 and toggle it off/on. Now I can get the disc out. But here's the alarming part:
Now my PS3 won't recognize ANYTHING I put in it. Not Michael Clayton, not any of my games..........NOTHING. It'll accept the discs. It'll spit them back out. Just won't recognize them.
Being as this is the 43rd page, I'm not expecting that many/any eyeballs will see this other than the next poor shmuck with a PS3 problem, but is there anyone out there that can offer advice before I have to ship it up and send it back???????
Everything worked just fine before the god damned firmware upgrade.
