Procedure for Entering Safe mode when PS3 is caught in update loop:

When you first turn on the PS3, it will not allow you to go into Safe mode. You must prepare it for this.

link for flash drive prep:
http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/SystemUpdates/PS3/pc_update.html#update_PC


(This will not work for the drive that currently is caught in the update loop. You must take the hard drive out of the PS3 and temporarily replace it with another 2.5” SATA drive. Note: temp drive may need to be initialized… Connect drive to pc, right click on My Computer and select Manage… Then select disk Management… you will then be presented with a dialogue box that will assist in initializing the disk.. However, only initialize it… Do Not Format it!(waste of time) Once the disk is initialized disconnect it from external enclosure or shut down computer and remove disk)

From the top:

1.) Plug in PS3 and flip switch in back of PS3 to on. Red LED in front of PS3 should light up. Also, plug in Controller at this point.
2.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then a final beep and the PS3 will power off again and Red LED will be on
3.) Hold finger to I/O button on front of PS3 – Green LED lights up
a. You will hear one beep, then another single beep, then two beeps
4.) As soon as you hear the two beeps, hold PS button on Controller
a. You will then be presented with an options screen
i. Restart System -- leads back to update loop
ii. Restore Default Settings --
iii. Restore File System -- leads back to update loop (8002F14E)
iv. Rebuild Database --
v. Restore PS3 System --
vi. System Update -- will cause error
5.) You will then remove the temporary SATA drive from the PS3 and replace it with the hard drive that is caught in the update loo
6.) I am currently stuck attempting to Restore Default Settings and Im sure it will end in error, but i have to try all possible solutions.

I have been scanning these answers for hours trying to find something that worked. i didnt want to buy another hard drive or enclosure to plug it into my pc so i tried this..... It worked first time, i just turned the system on waited for it to start getting into the update loop then pulled the hard drive. it read error on the screen, the ps3 turned off. i turned it off at the power switch, plugged the hard drive back in and turned it back on and it worked first time, went straight to first time setup! im well pleased!

The playstation 3 does not work with certain games saying there is an error on the router (error code: 80710723) How can we open more ports on the router? Thanks for your help


Generally what happens is that progress will stall whilst you are trying to update the firmware or software/games on your PS3, causing it to be corrupted. Your console is then unable to function properly, and you are left trying to "pick up the pieces" as it were. The PS3 error 80710723 is one of these system update errors, and is often experienced by gamers who use wireless connections to update their firmware or games.

So how can you fix PS3 system update error? Here are a few steps you can take to try and fix the 80710723 error code yourself.

  1. In your System Options/Network Settings you need to go and disable a setting called "media server". Doing this has been reported to fix the PS3 system update error in a number of different cases.
  2. If you are using a wireless network connection then switch to a wired connection and attempt to update your console. Wireless connections can have interference, or fail from time to time. Therefore it is better to use a wired Internet connection where possible.
  3. As a last ditch resort you can actually download the update from the Sony website onto your PC, then load that update onto a USB stick and plug it into your PS3 and carry out the update process from there. However, it is best to actually try and fix your connection problems first.

I had the same problem... Just fixed it today..
Just before I had the update loop problem, my bluetooth on the PS3 went. I could only use the controller whilst connected to the USB port.

Theres a game stuck inside the machine and no game icon appears on the screen indicating i can load


Have you recently picked up or moved your PS3 console and carried it? The disk may have fallen out of the slot in the PS3 causing it to slip INTO the ps3.... This may be a serious problem and you may have to open it up to retrieve your disk, otherwise SEND IT IN!

Downloading ps3 update and I'm stuck on a error loop


hey mate!
i had the same problem as you have with a 40 gb model i bought with a ylod and fixed. after i assembled it i tried to update the firmware but it got stuck in a loop between 69 to 70 % and wouldn`t finish the install. after doing some research i found out the the error number that appeared (cant remember the number now) happned because some hardware wasn`t connected the way its suppose to,when 69% will indicate the blu ray drive,and indeed i noticed that the clip on the ribbon was broken . i had to use a piece of cardboard at first to shove it right to its place nice and tight and started the ps3 again , (failed again because my wifi antenna wasnt connected, but after i connected everything...) the update finished and i was a happy man!
so if your ps3 have been opened in the past , there is your problem.
hope i healped and good luck!

I tried updating my ps3 to the recent 2.36 update, it downloaded, and i agreed with the terms and everything. When it was time for installing the download, it stops at 29 percent, and teling me that there...


Hey davefearon,

If you are unable to get back to the Playstation 3 dashboard, your console may be stuck in an installation loop. Unfortunately, this typically means that you would need to contact Sony to arrange physical repairs on your PS3.

On the other hand, if you can get back to the PS3 dashboard, you may want to try updating the console using your PC and a USB flash drive instead. You should be able to find instructions on how to do so in your owner's manual, or can visit Sony's support website by clicking on the link I've provided below.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Problems during boot


this is windows unable to get to passed the lower bios memory before windows takes over with the normal memory. Check your cmos battery is'nt low, or reset the bios JBAT1 terminal from pins 1-2 to 2-3 then back again as the loop could be corrupt bios or a peice of hardware that cannot be started.
