I am a senior and have been unable to do an update as requested. Consequently I have not been able to use Netflix for some 5 weeks and I am NOT HAPPY with Sony customer phone service. The TV keeps saying...


The updates for the Ps3 are located solely in the Ps3 and not on the computer. When the Ps3 prompts you to update, it should also give you an option to press to update it. If the Ps3 does not, then you'll have to manually update it yourself. To do this, go into the settings of the Ps3 and press System Update. Then press Update Via Internet. Proceed to follow the onscreen instructions.

My PS3 wont recognise 3.15 update from usb, formated usb to fat32 nothing works. Trying to swap the drive did the recomended instruction change and the system wont restart the new drive,went through all...


If your PS3 will not see the update most likely you did not save the file to the right place.

The link below is the the main instructions to properly do the install of the firmware update. However when you save the you will wanted to save the update in a folder named "PS3” on the root directory of the USB drive. Then in that folder make a folder called “UPDATE”. After you have done this then you will want to save the update in the “UPDATE” folder. Doing this should allow your PS3 to see the update.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Hi buddy You can update your system software by any of the following methods:
  • System Update »
    Update using the PS3™ system's [System Update] feature.
  • Update using a PC »
    Download update data using a PC and save on storage media* or a USB Mass Storage device. Copy the update data to the PS3™ system's hard disk drive and perform the update.
  • Update using disc media »
    Update using update data that is included on a game disc.
*An appropriate USB adaptor (not included) is required to use storage media with some models of the PS3™ system.

I hope this will help you.

PS3 Retail Demo Mode

In security settings press and hold select + square + L1 and L2

than enter 1 of these following codes depending on your version number

1.5x code: 5202
1.6x code: 7568
1.7x code: 0506
1.8x code: 7712 or 7259

and the ps3 will be unlocked from demo mode.
but be aware that this will only be for a couple of minutes.
so make sure you have the latest firmware the not demo one but the ordinary from the playstation site on a removable storage media
something like a memory stick or flash drive

so you can update immediately after unlocking you ps3! only this way you can completely unlock your system!!
