Weird lines when Playstation turns on

Was updating to the latest version via internet connection and it seemed to be doing fine in downloading process like usual, went away and when I came back, the tv screen had a weird squiggly static/snow...powered down the playstation with the on/off switch on the back, when it turns on it goes straight to the squiggly line static snow on the television screen. What do I need to do to fix this problem. I checked all the connection and they are intact. I tried reseting the system by holding the power button on the front for 3 seconds..nothing happened...How do I fix this problem?

80022d11 When i load gt5 it says that it's failing to register my trophys and so my game will quit .. what's the problem ?

Version v2.60 for the Playstation 3 has the only real fix for this issue. If you don't update to the latest version, or at least v2.60 you will keep getting this with multiple games, so you should update as soon as you can.

There are two ways to do this:

Update via internet connection:
First, go to "settings," then "system settings." There should be an option that says "update via internet." Select that, then leave the settings menus. Your PS3 will now automatically update the next time it is connected to the Playstation Network.

If there is something preventing you from connecting your PS3 to the internet, then you can use the following method:

First, insert a flash drive into your computer that has at least 168 megabytes of space on it. In your web browser go to and click the big red "download now" button. This will bring you to a new page. Follow the instruction given on the page exactly or the update will not work.

Let me know how it goes. If you need any further support with this issue, be sure to leave a comment in this thread and I will get back to you. I'm here to help.

How do i download games on my psp

Hi liamloki,

To download games on your psp you'll have to update your firmware updated to the latest version. You can do it by installing it via memory stick or by doing it with an internet connection (make sure you have your system plugged in when doing the firmware update)

Once that's done you'll have to use your playstation network id (if you don't have one, create one) and acess to the playstation network on your PSP (you'll need an internet connection to do this).

Access the PStore and choose the games you want to download (it'll need valid credit card information since you're purchasing games). It'll start downloading the game onto your system and when it's done you should be able to play it!.

Hope this helped,

I was on playstation home and my ps3 froze... i turned it off and on but the only thing that comes up is that moving bar... what do i do?...

You should try and update the latest version on your PS3 via internet and see if that solves the problem. Playstation Home is still going through some bugs which is a work in progress as always like any other software programs out there.

Frustrated with PSP and Laptop

All you have to do after installation is to go to playstation network and download the demo or file you want to.After saving it goto the place where the file is downloaded and double click it.Connect your psp via usb and turn on usb connection.Your game will start downloading.Also make sure that you have 4.05 FW.

No display when loading game

I have had advice directly from SCE that updates should be done from a flash Drive and not directly from the internet connection on the system, as its quicker and more stable.
I have just had my unit crash on me, by updating first the PSStore update patch, which caused the original issue, then an update for RSV2 pretty much finished it off.

Get the game right in the first place!!!??

Psp upgrade to 3.51

In order to update, you need to have your psp FULLY CHARGED, I mean 100%, and have your psp setup to connect to the internet via wifi, after that, you can go to the setting section, select network update to update your psp to the latest version.

Alternatively, if you have a memory stick, you can download the firmware update from the internet to your memory stick.

Both method need a memory stick. If you already have one, I can give you the link below in order to download the firmware update.

Instructions was given in that link. If you have any questions please ask.
