    I was hesitant about posting this article, due to a couple of comments in this thread, however some awesome PS3HaX members suggested i should :p
    After all it is important to make people aware of the faults with release day consoles and other retails which had problems due to Firmware updates.also i read theres a new BLOD (blue light of death) that is causing some system's to be sent back for repairs.

    Yupp, I've tried just about everything, besides tearing the system down and voiding the warranty.

    Bear in mind these are the only reported problems out of over 1 million consoles that were sold on launch day.
