SONY PS3 320GB + 120GB EXTERNAL £210.00

£210 delivered.

Photo will follow tomorrow....

I am offering a Playstation 3 console, 3 months old and in as new condition with box. The system was a 120GB, but I bought a brand new Samsung 320GB drive to go in it and an external hard drive caddy to use the 120GB as an external.

HOWEVER, you may of heard of the 3.56 firmware issue where it won't allow you to change the hard drive, well I am currently having this problem at the moment and I have given up waiting for a firmware fix so I am selling it all to get a new one asap.

The 120GB was formatted in windows before changing to the new drive in the PS3 so until Sony release a firmware to fix it, I can't use it.

However, once it is fixed, you have a complete bargain here as the console hasn't been used that much so is in 'as new' condition.

To confirm, you will get:

1 x PS3 Console
1 x 320GB Samsung HDD
1 x 120GB Original PS3 HDD
1 x External HDD caddy
4 spare HDD screws
1 x HDMI cable

Please be aware, you are buying this at your own risk. If Sony don't release a firmware to fix it, I can't be held responsable, but as said, Sony Customer Services have told me it is soon to be released.

Paypal gift or bank transfer. Thanks. Photo to follow tomorrow.

They fixed the HDD problem - try to update the firmware again and it'll install the patched 3.56.

intrested.l..same question as massmail666
banned#3
I can't, I formatted the 120GB original in windows before trying to install the new hard drive as I needed an external to load on the firmware lol

Massmail666, sorry no. No collection sorry.

Hmmm, without the hard drives....ok, I'd go to £170 delivered.

Do you know anyone with a PS3? Just borrow their HDD to update the PS3.

EDIT: Have you tried booting into safe mode?

Turn the console on, then off, then hold the power button until the console beeps twice... Then select 'Restore system files'.

(O.o) It's an easy fix, hell if it's only 3 months old you can return it to the shop... Oh well.

Here is more information about the problem/situation:

As I said, £210 delivered for the lot, or £170 delivered for everything apart from the hdd caddy, and the 2 hard drives.

It's not an easy fix - it needs a firmware update to correct it which Sony are working on. I tried taking it back to Asda but no receipt and not their fault.

If someone wants it though, let me know as when/if Sony release a patch, it's good as new.

Will take £140 with one controller and power lead, but no hard drive.
#12

#13
ok so for £140 i get the console leads and stuff...and i just need to get a harddrive for it? and it will work?
banned#14
No because the firmware which is installed will not allow hard drive upgrades at the mo. Please read the listing properly!!
#15
Any reason for no collection?
banned#16
From past experience, I've had people pay and then come to collect stuff, and then spend half an hour examining it, and then changing their mind due to a change of heart!
banned#17
I'll do the lot for £180. Can't be fairer than that.
#18
how much for the 320 hd?
banned#19
jaydog, so that i understand fully. without the firmware is there anyway I can fix this issue? by replacing the HDD with another PS3 one?
banned#20
bykergrove, I have absolutly no idea mate. Sorry. Not really technically minded. I have tried a brand new hard drive in the console with no luck.
banned#21
Here's the error message I get

Be aware, you can't even get into the XMB, as soon as you turn the console on, you get the above.
banned#23
I would sell you the 320GB HDD in the USB caddy as an external, with leather case and USB cable for £45 delivered.
#24
£170 delivered for the lot?
