Hi everyone, I have a Playstation 3 80GB model that gut stuck in an update loop after trying to update the firmware. I was able to stop the update loop by removing the hard drive and then eventually went in to the systems safe mode. Problem is none of the options there work. They either say hard drive not found or not accessible. And when trying the update system option it just stays on the checking please wait screen then eventually freezes or gives me " a serious error has occurred call sony technical support error 8002f281". I have taken the hard drive out and reformatted it to fat 32 several times but once in the ps3 it seems to just corrupt it or something because I have to reformat it on the computer again. Anybody know how to fix this problem?
