I cant update,keep getting error code 8002f994,can you give me a solution?...

Your Playstation error code (8002f994) means that too many people are currently downloading the update. I suggest you to update it later.

I hope it works! If not, please leave a reply.

Have a nice day!

Its happened to me too.... I tried to sign in and then went to "forgot password" button and come up with 80023017 i read stuff online on the playstation forums but that was from 2007-2008 about it being...

Error 80023017 is (as far as I can tell) a maintenance issue. So my guess is that we will have to wait for Sony to patch this with another update. Until then, you cant get online.. It's because you updated to version 3.50.

I cant get version 1.17 to get online

You probably need to update your firmware. To do so, you'll need an appropriate storage device (usb mass storage device, memory stick, etc.).
Updating your firmware will most likely fix this problem.
The process of updating your firmware without going online is available on the playstation site, here:

I cannot be sure that this is your problem because there is no firmware version 1.17 so you may be referring to an update to a game.

If this is the case, you should try uninstalling the game from your hard drive, re-installing or downloading it, and then running it to update it if necessary.

If you are still having problems, it may be your router. Some cable companies have built in firewalls in their router that prevent access to certain ports on the internet and can cause other devices to malfunction.

Hope this helps!
