SOURCE: carried out an update, but now stuck in loop

Procedure for Entering Safe mode when PS3 is caught in update loop:

When you first turn on the PS3, it will not allow you to go into Safe mode. You must prepare it for this.

link for flash drive prep:
http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/SystemUpdates/PS3/pc_update.html#update_PC


(This will not work for the drive that currently is caught in the update loop. You must take the hard drive out of the PS3 and temporarily replace it with another 2.5” SATA drive. Note: temp drive may need to be initialized… Connect drive to pc, right click on My Computer and select Manage… Then select disk Management… you will then be presented with a dialogue box that will assist in initializing the disk.. However, only initialize it… Do Not Format it!(waste of time) Once the disk is initialized disconnect it from external enclosure or shut down computer and remove disk)

From the top:

1.) Plug in PS3 and flip switch in back of PS3 to on. Red LED in front of PS3 should light up. Also, plug in Controller at this point.
2.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then a final beep and the PS3 will power off again and Red LED will be on
3.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then two beeps
4.) As soon as you hear the two beeps, hold PS button on Controller
a. You will then be presented with an options screen
i. Restart System -- leads back to update loop
ii. Restore Default Settings --
iii. Restore File System -- leads back to update loop (8002F14E)
iv. Rebuild Database --
v. Restore PS3 System --
vi. System Update -- will cause error
5.) You will then remove the temporary SATA drive from the PS3 and replace it with the hard drive that is caught in the update loo
6.) I am currently stuck attempting to Restore Default Settings and Im sure it will end in error, but i have to try all possible solutions.

SOURCE: ps3 error 8002f14e

That is Failed Software Update, when that happens the system gets corrupted and cannot load anymore.
All you can do is downloading the update into an USB stick , plugging the memory stick into any of the USB ports on the PS3 and try to run the update again. Do it a couple of times.
If that does not work contact Sony, in some case they will replace the playstation becvause of this error.

MY PS3 TRIES TO UPDATE BUT STOPS AT 53%


Your update file is most probably corrupt or wireless internet is disrupting.

Try re-downloading it again

Also try the option to update it via USB instead of wireless connection.

USB is usually very fast and reliable

I had the same problem... Just fixed it today..
Just before I had the update loop problem, my bluetooth on the PS3 went. I could only use the controller whilst connected to the USB port.

Downloading ps3 update and I'm stuck on a error loop


hey mate!
i had the same problem as you have with a 40 gb model i bought with a ylod and fixed. after i assembled it i tried to update the firmware but it got stuck in a loop between 69 to 70 % and wouldn`t finish the install. after doing some research i found out the the error number that appeared (cant remember the number now) happned because some hardware wasn`t connected the way its suppose to,when 69% will indicate the blu ray drive,and indeed i noticed that the clip on the ribbon was broken . i had to use a piece of cardboard at first to shove it right to its place nice and tight and started the ps3 again , (failed again because my wifi antenna wasnt connected, but after i connected everything...) the update finished and i was a happy man!
so if your ps3 have been opened in the past , there is your problem.
hope i healped and good luck!

PS3 Update successful,install failed,systemrebooted,error8002F14E


On the playstation 3 site error code tool says this code is an issue updating the PS3 sytem software. Try to start with the hard drive uninstalled then try again installed. If that dont help i would format the hard drive in a laptop and see if it helps. worst casr scenario you could dissasemble the PS3 and unplug tha battery on the main board and see if that helps. Good Luck

PS3 + UPDATE = bad for me


Sounds like your stuck in a firmware update loop.

See what happens when you boot the PS3 with the hard drive out.

Do you still get the same menu on screen?

Updating killzone2, killed my ps3


If you get stuck in a loop like this, most of the time it's because you have bad sectors on the hard drive and / or the drive is failing.

If you have a spare sata drive around I'd swap it with your current PS3 drive and see if that corrects the problem

Since you're using a new drive the PS3 will require an external usb drive hooked up with a copy of firmware 2.60.

Check out my guide below:

I'm still working on my guides so if anything is confusing just let me know and I'll explain further.

Hope this helps.

I tried updating my ps3 to the recent 2.36 update, it downloaded, and i agreed with the terms and everything. When it was time for installing the download, it stops at 29 percent, and teling me that there...


Hey davefearon,

If you are unable to get back to the Playstation 3 dashboard, your console may be stuck in an installation loop. Unfortunately, this typically means that you would need to contact Sony to arrange physical repairs on your PS3.

On the other hand, if you can get back to the PS3 dashboard, you may want to try updating the console using your PC and a USB flash drive instead. You should be able to find instructions on how to do so in your owner's manual, or can visit Sony's support website by clicking on the link I've provided below.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
