Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: trying to update software and keep getting the 800...


You will need an extra 2.5" HDD. use a laptop HDD.
So we all know with this error, it won't allow you to enter in the recovery menu because it would try to re-install the bad 2.8 update firmware again and again once it turned on.
1. So what I did was I swapped the laptop HDD into the PS3, it won't be able to read the HDD but it will allow you to enter the recovery menu now.
(for those who do not know how to get into the recovery menu, here is the instruction http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?message
.uid=39144801
)
2. Once I'm in the recovery menu, I took out the laptop HDD and put back in the PS3 HDD.
3. I also downloaded the 3.01 firmware from the PS website and uploaded into my USB drive and put that in the PS3 slot.
4. At this point, you want to select "system update" and update to the 3.01 version.

For some reason, the first time doing this the system froze at 67% with a new error (but i didn't write down the code). So I had repeat step 1 and 2, but this time when I put back in the PS3 HDD I chose "restore file system" without having to do the system update again. Then it gave me another error at around 65% that said the disk is corrupted and tell me to press OK to format the disk. After it formatted, it automatically install the 3.01 version and the system is fixed.

PS 3 Slim + Drake's Fortune freezes.


Go to system update and update your system to 3.01. This has helped me.

Game disc is stuck in cosole


You will have to take a screwdriver to it, and open up the PS3, and remove the CD... once you do that make sure the console will stay on without the cd in the drive, do your update under systems menu then try ANOTHER game

Resisitance space on home


Make sure you have all the latest updates installed. If that doesn't work, delete Home from your PlayStation and download it again. It should fix the problem.

System froze while installing software update


well you have no choice but to turn it off...hopefullly when you reboot the machine it will attempt to reinstall the firmware..usually that is what the unit does. if it freezes again at 100percent it very well could be the 3rd partion sector of your SATA drive....ive seen this before.

Download freeze


Is this when you try a second and third time to download the same movie? Try a different one. Update to version 2.2 (came out last night). It has upgraded reliability for the internet. Hopefully that helps. Good luck!!
