Re: Ps3 dont take new update off thumbdrive either
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.
Back up any of your save info, reformat the drive , download sony's latest software into a thumbdrive and trying restoring the system
If all that wont work, replace the DVD drive. I have one in the shop like that
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.
yeah im having the same problem, i assume its to do with the new 3.41 patch people have said they can't even upgrade their hdd's anymore sony will probably fix this with a patch, i have a 500gb ps3 load times ont he xmb are slow takes longer than it did, best answer i can give you is the new patch is the problem, not your system or model so dont worry once sony figures it out then we can all breathe better
Okay the PS3 has to be abit closer to the Wireless Connection or else it wont work atleast 20 ft away or else its not going to work 1st disconnect the PS3 from the wireless connection and then try to download or you download the patch from www.sony.com and put it on a disc and load on the PS3 and update it.
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.
