Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
While trying to update the ps3 to v 2.50 I keep getting the message "error encountered" and some 800 code. It downloads to 70%, then displays the error code. When trying to update from usb port the error that is displayed says "corrupt data". I don't want to update but the playstation network requires it. Help
Thanks guys, I got it fixed! I unplugged the power from the PS3 for at least 30 minutes, and to be safe i rebooted my router. I was then able to download and install the 2.5 update!

Ok, no matter how you try to install the firmware it will always write it to the hard drive first before install. Now if it gives you the 800 error while downloading it's your hard drive and it may need to be re-formatted or replaced. If you get an error during installation, then therewas a misplaced piece of code during the download and it needs to be downloaded again.
BTW, the power button default reset is ONLY for the Video output settings.
Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
