Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
When I try to get version 1.17 to go online my ps3 freezes after it says please wait and has a blank black screen. I've turned of media server and signed out of PSN. What should i do?
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!
