I just downloaded 2 videos onto my ps3..but they have both tuned out black and white :( and after doing so research i found out that its some sort of bug

has this happened to anyone else, and what should i do? im currently in the middle of installing a demo so i really hope it doesnt turn out the same :hea:

EDIT: oh and btw it happened after i installed the new 2.50

Yes, this is a bug with the firmware. The only thing you can do is wait for the next update correcting this. When you update to new firmware, they say turn the PS3 off, then hold the power button to restore default settings. This prevents any further issues. I guess you could try that now.

my mantra is "if it aint broke... don't fix it." and "wait for sufficient reports on major updates before installing them"

reason I say this is that with some cellphones, if you upgrade the firmware thinking that it just HAS to be better since it is newer, you will end up with less capabilities than before.

going backwards with the firmware is not a simple task and involves a total reflash back to the previous firmware version. you will have to do a good deal of researching to find out how to do this, as well as get your hands on the proper supplies to do it with. It generally will consist of a Flash Program, A firmware flash file, and a connection from the PS3 to the Computer (at least that is what it takes to do it on my cellphone.)

demo of what? a game? do games show in black and white, or only videos?

as far as when they will correct the issue, you would have to get in contact with their technical support staff on that since I have no idea. You may be able to cooerce them into providing you with a method of downgrading the firmware, if you complain enough that their update ruined your experience.
