Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Update won't finalize even though I press PS button

So I inserted a blue ray DVD and notice pops up saying that I have to update to version 2.50.  So I follow the directions and the new version seems to download.  After the download is complete, I get a message that I sho7uld press the PS button on my wireless remote.  So I press the PS button (which is right below the direction keppad, right?) and i get NOTHING.  So I hold down the PS button fort ten seconds and STILL nothing.  So I turn of my PS 3 for 10 seconds and turn it on again (I figuredI would update later) aand the same screen pops up.  So I thought maybe it was the DVD, so I take out the DVD and turn off the PS3 and wait 10 seconds and start up again and I STILL get the same screen.  
My PS 3 is basically locked down right now and there is nothing that I seem to be able to do about it.

When you insert the Blu-ray disk, it should load automatically. If it does not, it should appear under the "Video" header on the main screen.

    Hi,

    The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way:

    1. Turn off Playstation 3.
    2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
    3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
    4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
    5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
    6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

    The current Recovery Menu supports:
    • Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
    • Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
    • Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
    • Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
    • Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
    • System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

    From the above select option "Rebuild Database". After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu.

    Thank you !!

    Just bought a used ps3. when plugged in, screen stays black, games don't load. finally says push ps button then tells me i need to reload my software....where can i get the 2.42 software? why wont it play...


    Instead of updating to 2.42, you should update to the latest version available (currently v2.80). The game probably doesn't work with the current software as the game most likely needs some of the new features in a newer firmware update.

    DVDs and BDs won't play on my PS3 80gb


    Chances are it's a hard drive saving problem, since it can still read blu-ray games.If this really bothers you, then save all data you want to save (game data, game saves, music, photos, etc.) then do a complete system restore, update again if it's still doing it then you know it's a HDD problem. But if it's still under warranty call up sony and they will set up with a fixed unit.

    Ps3 System Update Failed, PS3 boots with error code 8002F14E.


    -Open the side of your PS3 where your HDD is. Take the screw out, but leave the HDD in.
    -When the update begins, pull your HDD out of the slot. It will tell you an error occured and it tells you to restart your system and try again. Instead, let the count from 60 run out, your screen will go blank for about 30 seconds then it will start back up and tell you that your Hard Drive needs to be reformatted. If you do not get this msg after 30 seconds, do it again until it does! Now, slide your HDD into place again - (make sure your controller is PLUGGED IN) and press the white PS3 button on the controller. It will then ask you to either press start and select at same time OR white PS3 Button - PRESS START and SELECT. Do not agree to user agreements!! Simply hit cancel and it will kick back to the PS3 start up screen.
