    mine wouldn't update via the wifi but got it to by Ethernet how old is it

    sell it to cex / or gamestation ?

    If it's stuck in a continuous loop, then you should be able to get it to a state where it plays on whatever firmware you had last on it.

    Remove the hard drive, and format it in another PS3, or with a SATA enclosure.
    Then put it back in the 120GB, and follow the instructions to format it with the old firmware.

    You could then sell it with the proviso that it is stuck on that the firmware, so no new games or PSN.

    Do you have a receipt for it? It's worth taking it back to the retailer from where it was purchased.

    It's also worth giving Playstation a call to see if they can help.

    Sony Playstation site>System Update

    Hold down the power button till the PS3 turns on then off, Hold the power button for a further 5 seconds. You should now be in recovery mode, from here select rebuild database and all should be good in tha hood
