The sites and clients you are trying to watch movies from updated to a more recent version of flash. Sony will have to release a firmware update that contains the latest version for your PS3 to be able to run these movies. Keep checking the firmware updates, and keep your PS3 up to date or watch the webcasts on your PC.

I have been using my PS3 to access the internet and it has being working fine until recently it now wont let me on the internet saying it doesnt have Adobe Flash Player to watch trailers or things like itv...

Try this and if it doesn't work let me know and we will go a different route.

  1. Start your PlayStation 3's web browser. You can do this by navigating to the "Network" category on your PS3's main menu and selecting the "Internet" option.

  2. Point your web browser to a website that uses Flash. YouTube, at, is a good example.
  3. Let the page load. Depending on your Internet connectio, this could take a few seconds.
  4. Click "OK" when the box reading "Install Missing Plugin" appears on screen. As Flash comes pre-installed on the PS3, this will update you to the latest version of Flash. You will know the update is complete when YouTube videos then begin to load.

DNS Error 80710102

This is a really annoying bug that’s present even in the current version (2.10 as of this post) of the Playstation 3 system software. When I got my PS3 earlier this month, it was using the oldest version, 1.10, but I couldn’t update it because the DNS error was preventing me from getting online.
After searching online for that error number, I came across a few sites that said the PS3’s DNS server needs to match that of your router. I made the appropriate changes to the PS3 and off I went. There was still a problem, though: it wouldn’t login to the Playstation Network, even though it passed the DNS test. Augh.
Some of the more silly answers I found included resetting your modem, calling your provider, telling the PS3 to automatically find all settings, and turning off your firewall. None of these make any difference.
The only option I had left was to download the update to a USB flash drive. This is a poor solution because not everyone HAS a flash drive. (You could probably do this using the 80 gig model’s card reader, though I wouldn’t know about that.) Anyway, here is a simplified version of the directions I followed:
1. Make a new directory in the flash drive named PS3, then one named UPDATE (both must be in all caps).
3. Plug the flash drive into the console, then from the XMB: Settings -> System Update -> Update via Storage Media
After this is done, you can delete the stuff you created on the flash drive.
Now, you’re using the most recent software and it still keeps giving you DNS errors? The only solution I’ve found so far is to keep trying to login until it works. That may sound like a shitty answer, but it’s the only one I’ve found that works with any certainty. After searching for a good amount of time and trying every suggestion, brute force is the most dependable answer I found.
Update: I’ve been using OpenDNS ( & for a couple of weeks now with little luck, but some people say it helps.
Update 2: I solved the mystery: spanning tree. Spanning Tree Protocol is a protocol for preventing loops in a network of switches. I had to turn on spanning-tree portfast on the port my PS3 is plugged into. Chances are this solution is completely unhelpful for most people, but I’m putting it up here anyway, just in case.

If you have updated to the latest version of system (2.3) you need to phone Sony. There is a problem with the latest update causing console failure, by overheating the Blu Ray disc chip.
