I bought this PS3 secondhand, and was so pumped about the backwards compatibility, but this error message won’t go away. I’ve tried (and gotten the same error after each):
Swapping out the HDD with the working one from another console, trying a USB update
Cleaning the contacts with WD40 electrical contact cleaner, as well as IPA
Opened the console and cleaned the board with IPA
Safe mode booting
I’m lost on what to try next. Any help? Or should I just junk this one?
