So I took apart my PS3 to reconnect the loose WiFi cable. It was relatively easy to take it apart to get to this cable. When I got to the cable it wasn't in all the way. So I pulled it out and clipped it back in place and it was tighter. So I was certain that this would fix it.
Put it all back together and started it up and BANG!! Error pops up again and the same things are happening. So what do I do now??!! Did I not push the chord in far enough. I mean the ONLY SOLUTION I could find online was just that. Its the the Wifi chord, its not plugged in.
But what I would really like to know is someone from Sony to say, "Error 80010201 means THIS". Doesn't a number mean something specific?? Think how easy things could be if every problem came with a number to determine what the error is. It doesn't make sense that no one knows what that error number means, its all speculation and guesses.
What do I do now?, well I could risk taking the whole thing apart, fan, blueray reader and gut the thing so I reach the plug where the Internet cable goes plugged into, but since it doesn't recognize wireless I doubt that would do any good.
So my next option is to get a new PS3. So for now, my PS3 is out of commission and it will be some time before I can afford to get a new one. Then its the whole ordeal of transferring all my data from my old one to my new one. But since I have a 255 Gig in my old one, can't I just swap out the hard drives and everything would be OK???
I have alot to look into. It still plays games, it just doesn't recognize any wifi connections and every second time you turn it on, it freezes and doesn't recognize the controllers. I am Sooo disappointed with it, no machine that you pay $800 should crap out on you. My PS2 is still running and works just fine, no problems at all. All these NEXT gen systems can kiss my arse!!
