Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

System software update to 2.43

Installed system software update 2.43, progress bar went to 100% and then came up with the message: Press PS button using wireless controller. Pressing the button did nothing. Restarting the system resulted in the same screen. Tested controller by inserting a disc but could not eject using the remote, only the front panel button. Changed batteries in the controller - still no control. Complete freeze. Is there a way out? Thanks

    I have tested controller with friend's system meanwhile, and I know that it works fine. It is the PS3 that froze, and so far, nothing will get it out of that screen.

    Problem solved: The PS3 button needs to be pressed with the sixaxes controller connected via USB. Wouldn't talk to it wireless. I also needed to reset the controller via the reset button on the bottom of it and register again as number 1. After that, very simply, follow the instructions and "she'll be right" as we say it down under. 
    Cheers

Did you already make sure that your controller is connected via the usb cable first?

    Well looks like it's time to call Sony. Make sure you don't break that seal! Usually even if it's out of warranty they'll cover the problem as a "courtesy" because it's actually they're fault for your console screwing up. Let us know what they say.

System froze while installing software update


well you have no choice but to turn it off...hopefullly when you reboot the machine it will attempt to reinstall the firmware..usually that is what the unit does. if it freezes again at 100percent it very well could be the 3rd partion sector of your SATA drive....ive seen this before.

MacBook Software Updater - continually prompts to install an update


You're probably not actually flashing the firmware, but downloading the utility to do so. Follow these steps:
1. Quit all other open applications. Open the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware update which is in your Utilities directory

2. Click Shut Down in the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update window and wait for your computer to shut down.

3. Press and hold the power button on your MacBook Pro until the power indicator light flashes repeatedly, then release the power button to begin the update.

A status bar indicates the progress of the update.

Important: Do not interrupt the update.

Your computer restarts automatically when the update is completed and opens the MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update.

4. Click OK, if the firmware is now up-to-date.

Xerox Fiery Xp12 - Problem (INVALID LICENCE) apears on the screen


You will need to use what came with your machine.
The note from Xerox states this.

NOTE: You will need the Fiery Restore / Update Server Software CD and the User Documentation v2.0 CD that came with your EX12 v2.0 Software

And here is the loading process
  1. Visually check to make sure the Fiery LCD is at the Idle screen before you proceed. This will make sure the Fiery is not in use.
  2. Insert the Fiery Restore / Update Server Software CD into the Fiery EX12.
  3. Press [Menu] button on the Fiery Server.
  4. Press the [Down arrow] button.
  5. Press the [Shut Down] button.
  6. Press the [Reboot System] button. The message 'Rebooting System' will display and disappear after a few moments. The Fiery Server will reboot and complete internal testing. The Restore / Update CD menu will be displayed.

    NOTE: Ignore the message 'It's now safe to power off the system'.

  7. Press the [Up arrow] or [Down arrow] button to scroll to 'Restore System' so this is highlighted. Press the [OK] button. The 'All data will be Deleted. Continue?' message will be displayed.
  8. Press the [Up arrow] or [Down arrow] button to scroll to 'Yes' so this is highlighted. Press the [OK] button. The 'Restoring System...' message will be displayed.

    NOTE: The System Restore will take approximately 7 minutes, during this time the message 'Restoring System...' will continue to be displayed.

  9. Press the [OK] button when the 'Restore Complete!' message is displayed.
  10. Press the [Up arrow] or [Down arrow] button to scroll to 'Exit' so this is highlighted. Press the [OK] button.
  11. Remove Fiery Restore / Update Server Software CD from the EX12.
  12. Power OFF the Fiery Server. The power switch is located on the rear of the server, above the power cord.

    NOTE: Wait 10 seconds before powering ON.

  13. Power ON the Fiery Server. The Fiery Server will boot and complete a self-test.
  14. The EX12 will prompt you to insert the User Documentation CD. Insert the CD and the Fiery will continue with the process. When the process is complete, the Fiery LCD will display the message 'Please remove CD'.
  15. Remove the User Documentation CD
  16. Power OFF the Fiery Server. The power switch is located on the rear of the server, above the power cord.

    NOTE: Wait 10 seconds before powering ON.

  17. Power ON the Fiery Server. The Fiery Server will boot and complete a self-test.
  18. Using the Configuration Report as reference, re-enter the network settings on the EX12.
