not a bad price if it works following what happened on 1st March
#3
Pretty good price for one of the old PS3s. And yeh, they work fine now.
banned#4
I remember seeing this when they had the slim 120gbs online and instore for £200 - at the time lbp was £8 at thehut so was a cr*p deal, and I suppose why they still have stock left.

Hi
Thanks for posting. And welcome to HUKD.
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.
Emmajk42 / Juliet_Bravo wrote a couple of very comprehensive and excellent guides for newcomers to HUKD here: - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/145906/newcomers-advice-on-hotukdeals-gene/

They are well worth taking a look at.
Again, thanks for posting, and welcome to HUKD.
Kind regards

...and was subsequently fixed automatically 23.5 hours later.

Yes, it will continue to function unless you ever plan to reset the date to, or before, 28 February 2010.

FYI:

A few members made some factual statements & provided our own guesses to the cause of the problem in a "Misc" thread that has now been deleted as certain other members waded in to pass derogatory comments (as usual).

Fortunately I saved the thread periodically throughout the two days where it was most active.

If you want a really technical explanation I can provide one, but in simple terms:

Two components in PS3 consoles manufactured before mid-2008 were reporting the date one day after 28 February 2010 differently. One thought 2010 was a leap year & hence reported 29 February 2010; the other was correct & provided 1 March 2010.

The result was that the machines set themselves back to 31 December 1999 & consequently could not connect to the PlayStation Network or play many games downloaded from the PlayStation Network. Blu-ray Disc-based titles that have Trophy support were also unable to be played.

The consoles affected were all 20GB, all 40Gb, all 60Gb, & some 80Gb "Phat" (non-Slim) PS3 models. The 160Gb "Phat", 120Gb Slim, & 250Gb Slim machines were not affected.

The issue corrected itself around 11:30pm on 1 March 2010 when the two components both reported the same date (2 March 2010). Yes, I know that sounds odd! :)

Unless a more permanent fix is applied to these "older" consoles then the same problem may occur in 2014 (as 2012 is a leap year).

No comment has been made by Sony as to whether a more permanent fix is required or if one will be able to be provided.

There is also some speculation as to whether the affected consoles will also be rendered inoperable on 1 March next year.

BFN,

next year will be fine for PS3s clock. The next problem year is potentially 2014, being its an even numbered non-leap year again. If it goes down, its only 1 day , 4 years away, so no real worries.

Yes, I know... I added the last line after my initial post so that the "worse case scenario" was there just in case.

What really P'd me off was Sony saying they were working on a fix when they were just hoping it would reset itself. Anyway, decent price for a PS3, especially when you look at the price certain Amazon Marketplace sellers are asking

My 80GB PS3 Phat (bought Aug 2009 from Sainsburys online) was ok when the 'catastrophic-front-page-on-the-metro-newspaper' glitch happened. I played online and offline on the day and nothing happened to my console. I read that if you were online or offline, all PS3 Phat's would be affected.

My brothers got the 40GB PS3 Phat and by the looks of it he didn't experience the problem with the glitch as he was playing Heavy Rain all day. Otherwise i would have heard of it.
#22
I think the PS3 glitch was only an issue if you had your console set to auto-update the date settings :thumbsup: So not all phat models were affected :)
#23
There are so many different ps3s out there I dont know which is the best one to get!!

I want one to play final fantasy, tekkken and I would also like to use it as a bluray player - which one is best to get?? All of these memory sizes and fat and slim options bamboozle me!

So could I just manually set it past the problem date then, in 2014? ie March 3rd 2014. Asked in another thread and apparently that won't work, but I can't see why

Yes because it is really Sony's intention to leave thousands of PS3 owners without a console, don't tell me, a rabid xbox fanboy.

Thanks, ordered one and £15 off worked - this is the best PS3 model I reckon. Heat & rep to OP and code poster.

Dont know what to make of this:

Accessories included: SCARY, DualShock 3 wireless controller



:w00t:


A dumb question (no, I'm not gonna ask if this is the Slim) but which 80GB is it in the table - anyone know please?

No you cant.

The ps3 uses 2 clocks as such.

One is the main system clock, battery backed up and run from a special chip. You cant alter this one. All PS3s around the World use this same time stamp (more or less)

When you start your PS3 up and the operating system boots up. It asks this chip for the time and displays this on the XMB.

This chip said it was Feb 29th 2010. The op system flaked out crying "There is no 29th" and sort of didnt know what to do, so it reset itself to its earliest date.

Its a flaw in that particular chip and was reported also the same chip in some Zune player which also failed.

Sony obviously at some point realised something was up and changed this chip on slims and on some late model phatties.

** They could patch the FW to state that when the chip reports 29th Feb 2014, for the Op system to ignore this and display the correct date, and then the following day to go back to trusting the chip again. <<< up to Sony if they decide to do this or not. If they dont, its only down for 1 day, 4years away, its no big worry, for me at least.

It'll have 2 USBs so not the 2nd one.

It'll be either a CECHK, L or M I reckon. http://www.edepot.com/playstation3.html#PS3_Model_Differences
#34
Mudslide is spot on. The ARM chip was at fault which controls the hardware clock, control panel etc.. The software clock is synced from this at startup. The hardware clock can't be fixed by a patch but the software clock can.

My PS3 failed on March 1st but thankfully I read the press reports before booting up so only aware due to the fact that the next day it recorded March 1st when it was March 2nd.

The first PS3 was released in nov 2006 so it is quite feasible that Sony didn't know about this problem before hand but as the chip has caused problems in the past (the Zune issue) it does make you ask questions.

just my two cents.

No backwards compatibility or card reader then - drag!

Thanks though Mudslide, repped.:thumbsup:

No, the USA got an 80GB software emulated PS2 playback model. That will be that 2nd model.

reading the link I gave (which also has tons of PS3 stuff on it) just further down that table it says it may have a different model No. "CEJH-10003 Little Big Planet in a Clear Black PS3" but will be same internals as the CECHK, L or M though. L and M having the smaller RSX as well as smaller CELL, whereas the "K" has only the smaller CELL. << wouldnt worry about all that too much though LOL

I saw that too :)

Referring to the scart block that you plug the composite (red, white, yellow) lead into.

Talking of which, PS3s don't come with a HDMI cable (or they didn't, at least), just the crap composite one, don't forget to order one from somewhere if you haven't got a spare knocking about.
