I managed to find the sony customer service numer and apparantly the fault is with their last update, so we have been compensated with an 80gb console free of charge- ours is a 60gb.

After initial set up and download, TV is displaying a hand on power plug picture with a red circle and line through it and a refresh symbol in light blue next to it, what does this mean?


Hi! and Welcome to Fixya!

What you have on the tv screen is a warning sign that your tv is currently updating its software. A hand holding a power plug with red circle on it says do not unplug the tv while its running the software update. The usual time for the update to finish is 60 minutes. It may took more than 60 minutes if you have a slow internet speed. This is normal especially if you are running the software update for the first time during the initial setup. The next time tv performs software updates it will take shorter time.

However, if the updates took more than two hours, the tv may be frozen. You can unplug and plug it back in and start from the initial setup again.

On some rare occasion, the tv may not proceed with the initial setup. You may have to turn off your modem to complete the initial setup. when initial setup is done, connect your tv to network and run software update again.

Let me know if you still have other questions.

What circumstance does the screen will be a blue screen of Digiprog 3 ?


there are mainly 4 reasons
1). Digiprog3 can't connect with the computer unless it needs to update, also can't run with the original software.
2). If you update incorrectly, DP3 will blue screen. (When we have newest update software, you could update DP3, if we haven't newest software, do not update).
3). Crashed during shipping
4). The voltage is unstable when Digiprog3 (Item No. SM33) is opened. (Note: please read carefully the manual before use DP3.)

3 steps to solve it
Step 1. Take down the fly cable between X1 and C30 in the red box.
(see following picture)

Step 2: Take down the IC on X1, then replace with a new IC. ( the IC pits should be compatible with the red point on the picture)

Step 3: Solder the fly cable (that has been taken out in first step) back to its original position.

I have a 60gb Phat Ps3. I recently went to update it to the latest firmware and it downloaded the update fine and was running normally. Then as it was installing the update, the system shut itself off...


Hello there vincent

If you have the red blinking light then you have the RED light of death AKA the RLOD.

The light is a warning sign to let you know something is wrong. I can give you the quick explanation, There are 2 chips on the motherboard inside the PS3, the GPU (graphics) and the CPU (brain), when playing the ps3 the solder heats up and when you finish playing it cools down, over time this will cause the soldering to crack and the chips to lose connection with the motherboard and you get the RLOD.

WHERE TO GO FROM HERE

Option 1 - Call Sony

In warranty the Price is Free, out of warranty the Price is $150, the whole process is 4-6 weeks

You can call Sony and they will collect the PS3, repair/replace, and deliver the PS3 back to you

Option 2 - Fix it your Self

You can use a PS3 fix manual to get this fixed easily and at home using household tools you probably already own.

Good luck

Best regards

How to perform system software update to renew encryption key on my playststion 3


You may have to renew the AACS encryption key to play content such as movies on commercially available BD video software (BD-ROM). If a message indicating that the encryption key needs to be renewed is displayed, update the system software to the latest version. The encryption key will then be automatically renewed.
AACS (Advanced Access Control System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray Discs. The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.
An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed. There may also be other times when the key has to be renewed. in the manual

no its not recomended it can damage it, let me guess.... not playing ps3 games and bluray disc? its a fault thats happening since the latest online update. if your ps3 is less than a year old phone sony and they will send you a new one out. if warranty has finished, sony can repair it but it will cost you, for their fault! make sure you back up your data before you send it. hope this helps
