Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Try powering the PS3 off with the power unplugged enough time to let it cool down. After an extended period, try updating again. This is in the event that the unit has overheated. Additionally, you may want to double-check the integrity of the downloaded update by matching file size or simple downloading a 2nd copy.

Post back any developments. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hey there! A possible simple solution to this is going to the Playstation support site or click this link. Then download the update that you need and put it onto a thumbdrive and insert it into your PS3, and use your PS3 to update through the update on your thumbdrive.

We are trying to play a blu-ray disc in our PS3 and it is telling us we need to preform a system software update to renew the encryption key? What do we need to do?


If your PS3 is connected online it should have the newest update already. In the event it's not. You want to go to sony playstation support.com insert a USB thumbdrive into your computer. Download the newest update, insert thumbdrive into the USB of the PS3 under system settings select install update. It will take a few minutes then your PS3 is up to date.

Ps3 wont play anything


Ring Sony. The update to version 2.3 contains a fault. The Blu Ray chip in the console is being allowed to run faster than it safely can, and it burns out. You must ring Sony, they are aware of this problem and will arrange a courier to collect your PS3 and a new unit will be sent out to you.

This is a version 2.3 update problem only.
