    This has happened to me before multiple times. Usually it's either because the cords connecting the TV and the Playstation weren't fully plugged in, or my internet went out and it caused the update to stop and the Playstation to glitch. I think maybe I could help you out a little better if you tell me things you tried to fix it like powering it on and off, or if it even would. Or tried unplugging it and letting it sit, et cetera. Thanks, hope I can help.

I recently got a new wep for my connection. I tried changing it in my network settings, but it said it had an error. Now when I try to change it the system freezes and all I can do is turn it off. It's...

Possibly because the network was shut down today by playstation for maintenance. PS3 slim models are not affected by the bug but playstation suggests even if you have a slim model to stay signed out for now until they can repair the network and to try not to download anything from the PS store because there is a possibility the data you download will become corrupt and will not let you redownload.Chances are your network is fine just gotta wait until the Network is back up and running on Playstation's side.

I have just got my new slim ps3 and have no access as yet to the internet and need too know how to get my atrac and bd software updated or upgraded

Since you are not connected with internet you can update by the following methods 1 You can update using the update data saved on a USB flash drive/other media. Go to 'settings' select 'system update' and choose 'update via storage media' 2 Update data may be contained in some game disc or any other disc media. When that disc is played, a screen will be displayed which will guide you through the update process. 3 In case you fail with the above methods, contact your local customer service helpline mentioned in your software manual

Question about playstation 3.....

No the ps3 is a sturdy piece of work. You actually have to try to break it. Unlike the ps2 slim, drop a empty soda can on it and it breaks :(

Ps3 reverse compatibility

Playstation 3s are only backwards compatible to an extent, only some playstation 2 games will work on a playstation 3 you should try some newer playstation 2 games and if they work then its the game if no playstation 2 games work check the internet for some updates for your playstation 3.
