    First, it always made me restore it , I went into service mode , did a format and got factory settings. I tried to access the playstation store but i had to update it and it failed on install.

    I tried to update from 4.21 to the latest firmware. I let it do it's thing and go back to it an hr later and the screen was black . I give it another hour and its still black . I unplugged it and turned it on and it was black and I couldn't get into service mode.

    Is it bricked? If so How long does the warranty last? I got it last christmas :(

    Standard warranty should be at least 1 year (extended could be up to 3 years). Depending on where you bought it, it may be as simple as just walking in the store to get the ps3 into service.
