Just plugged my 32gb model in, performed update and got an error in the process, what do I do? I was about to play Tekken Tag Tournament 2 >_< All I see is a black screen.

For starters, I'd recommend actually calling Nintendo tech support instead of wasting your time asking for help from this troll-infested pit.

Unplug it, wait 30+ seconds, plug it back in.

...

Profit.

So you have a blank black screen and no controller input responds?

If it's just absolutely not responding, you have no choice but to forcefully power off the console and load it up again. If it still won't respond after this, you need to contact Nintendo and have it repaired under your warranty.

Whoa - are we not calling people who share these kinds of stores liars anymore?

Wow, board... growing up a little, I see. Nice. ;)

Good luck TC, that stinks. :(

if it was just downloading, it should be fine. freezing during installation is when you should be worried.
