My ps3 isnt updating properly, when i do a system update it says that its up to date, but when i log onto a game it starts an upload but never gets past 6%.

How long are you trying to let it download? Its been my experience that even if its seems stuck, chances are its still downloading. Can you see your HDD light {orange light} still blinking? Ive had it take over an hour before, and a few games had huge updates that took overnight due to the heavy traffic on the server. this may not be it at all, but theres a couple of suggestions. I would try to update the games you are playing again. start it when your running errands or something, and check when you get back. It would be helpful also if you could list the games you are trying to play.

Ps3 3.01 update broke my disc drive

I had the same problem: Blue-Ray games/movies, normal dvds would not play after some time I did the 3.01 upgrade. To work around the problem I went into System Settings and did a system restore - quick format and viola everything was fine. Unfortunately I was not able to run the backup utility to save my game data - (kids not too happy about losing countless hours on Little Big Planet). So hopefully this helps someone - Funny thing is after the restore the version of software was still 3.01 (I thought it would do factory reset). So something got hosed somewhere in the settings or just general HD corruption.

Playstation wont stay on

has it had a few hours to cool down? if so you may have to contact sony to see if its still under warranty. something may have been damaged inside.

try to go to your system setting and restore it but you can always check and see if there is a new system update for your system and that might work also
