Something Wierd Happening

So this has happend twice so far. One night I trun on my PS3, (the 160gig Slim model) and I get this screen asking me to put in the time and date.  Now everything is working after I put that in, but its happend to me twice so far and I wan't to know if this is something I should be worried about. Of course its noting major, but after my 60gig YLOD'ed on me, I get a little paranoid when something unusual happens with my new one lol.


Now when this happend, both of the times I tried to turn it on by pressing the PS button on the contorller, after it didn't turn on the 4 lights blinked on the contorller and turn off after a few seconds. So then I go to turn it on by hitting the power botton on the console its self and the first thing that pops up is the screen asking me to input the time and date. After I do that everything works the way it supposed to.


So I guess I'm asking if this has happend to anyone else here, and if I should be worried by this unusual occurance. I'd appreciate any help/advice that would lay my worries to rest lol.

sounds like the console goes back to factory settings or something, since the controllers wont turn it on and you have to set the date and time. That's weird, haven't heard of that problem before.

Might be a problem with a firmware since, as Jay says, it goes back to factory mode once you turn it of as if it was a brand new console every time.
