I found a solution that fixed the problem for me on the playstation.com blogs. http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=psnetwork&message.id=128436&query.id=845#M128436

Go to your router's setup page usually 192.168.1.1 and go the the ADMINISTRATION tab and check the option disable UPnP.

This could be a problem with your hard drive or just a slow internet connection. If using wireless, move you ps3 a bit closer to the router and make sure the router is higher then the PS3. I that still doesn't work then try a different hard drive. Hope this helps. Thanks,

SOURCE: my ps3 says error occured during operation

Hello,

your PS3 is freezing simply because your console is affected by heat, so you have to cool it down.

If the freezing continues even after cooling down, you can follow the steps below:

To stop the PS3 from Freezing, you could begin by putting off your console and wait for 20 minutes. After that, put it back on.

Check if there's any loose cables. If there is, put them back in.

If the freezing continues after taking the above step, you can follow the link below as a guide on how to fix the problem.

http://www.squidoo.com/PS3-Repair-Guide

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with
your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

How can I fix 8002F334 error in my ps3


I've seen this error code going around for the older PS3's. From what I can gather, it's a HDD issue that can't be cured easily. Here are the steps to take that I found, that seem to work for all PS3 systems.
  • take out the hard drive
  • connect hard drive to pc (running windows 7 64bit, but any windows os should work without other software)
  • open up disk management - in win7 it asked me to make a master boot record, so I did.
  • format in NTSF - that's right, NTSF - don't use quick format
  • shut down pc, take out hd, take usb drive too
  • put hd back in ps3, put usb stick in ps3
  • boot ps3
  • a screen will pop-up saying the hard disk have to be formatted
  • hold start + Select for 5 sec.
  • After formatting the system will restart and the update will start installing
  • configure your ps3 setup - done
  • Remember to get the latest firmware from SONY onto the USB drive.

PS3 stuck in demonstration mode 2.80


Visit the Playstation3 website and download the lastest version onto a flash drive. Making sure you dont have any other software/files on the flash drive.

Create a folder on the flash drive in which to save the update data.
Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the flash drive or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
Install the playstation update into that folder. "PS3UPDAT.PUP"
Your console SHOULD now reconise the update.
If nothing changes restore the playstation fully to its default status.

Not playing any game


Are you connected to the internet with your PS3? If you are make sure you have the latest update. If not you can download the latest update onto a memory stick via your PC and just plug it in to the PS3

Ps3 supports over 1000 ps1 and ps2 titles. Make sure you hook your ps3 up to the internet and download the latest firmware updates. Odds are your system will be able to play all or most of your ps2 games once you update the ps3 online.
