A sony update came.i started to install.then a error message said update error happen and will try did it 3 times.till a error number came up.went to sony site and it said to try reset.but...

If it was an error after the update was downloaded then the only thing I can think of is restoring the PS3 to factory settings and trying again.
Many times I got such an error it was because my connection was fickle, it would keep cutting out and not properly downloading the update and causing an error. In this case I would have to just keep restarting the update and hope it would finish.
Hope this helps.

I'm updating my playstation but it keeps failing and it said to cantact tech support. The error code is 8002F1F9

I think your problem is due to a Firmware glitch. Try reformatting your hard disk under 'System Setting'. After that, download the latest Firmware update to a USB flash drive, and update it via Storage Device under 'Update'. This should get your Ps3 up and running properly in no time I hope this helps! - Omn1cide

Hooked up the net to my ps3. Ask to update system came back with an error system is corrupted. Keeps restarting the system will not boot up

Ok you need to go to playstations website and find a update for your dashboard and put it on a memory stick or sd card if you have a older ps3. You have to download it onto the memory stick just like playstation says then you put the memory stick in the ps3 and it should start updating from the memory stick. I've fixed several ps3s with the same problem. Your hard drive probably didnt download the update all the way so its sticking when you turn it on and restarting trying to do the same process over and over again stopping in the same spot.

PS3 problem

Is it trying to download an update? If so, try downloading the update from the sony site on a pc and save it to a usb stick in a folder called UPDATE (has to be capitals) which should be in a folder called PS£ (deatils of this are on the sony site).

Then turn on the PS3 in safe mode by holding down the start button until you hear three beeps and go to option 6, system update and follow the onscreen instructions. Just this minute done this on my sons PS3

I have the error code 8002F14E

try updating it via wired connection, or getting 100% signal wireless, keep on trying until it finishes downloading, if its the last update V3.21 I believe it also happen to me with my 80gb as well! it might also take a really long time to download be patient

My PS3 wont even start the latest system update, COD WAW (Error)

First try to update the PlayStation software itself and then update the COD.
Due to specs of PS3 soft none of updates will allow background download. and make sure that your internet connection is uninterrupted, I sugest u to use wired connection rather than wireless, and while update is in progress try to keep all other internet connection requiring equipment offline for smoother process.

Update me about your progress

Good luck
