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?

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 http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/ 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.
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!.
1.Go to Settings from your homescreen.
2.Find the ''System Update'' it should be at the top of the list.
3.You are given two choices Update via Internet or Update via Storage Media,select Update via Internet.
4.You should be asked which Access point you want to use, if you've not setup an internet connection with your PSP do it now.
5.It should begin Downloading the update wait for it to download it.
6.It may automatically start the update process(if it automatically starts skip to step 7), if it does not then go back to System Update and select Update via Storage Media.
7.It should ask you to accept the license agreement it should then ask you to make sure not to remove the AC adaptor etc after this it should start updating.
8.Now that it has finished updating,delete the update by going to Games select Memory Stick it should say about the update delete it.
There are two ways to do this 1.For the latest version without having to use the internet,you need to buy one of the latest games then when you try to start it if your version is not high enough it will say ''An update is needed.Update now?'' say yes and follow it's given instructions.
2.You need the internet for this one.
Go to settings from the PSP homescreen,go to System Update you are given two choices Update via Internet and Update via Media Storage,choose Update via Internet it asks you a few questions on whether you want to update say yes to them all,then it should start downloading,when it has finished downloading (It might just ask you whether you want to install the update when it finishes downloading) go back to System Update and this time choose Update via Media Storage,it gives you some instructions and asks you to accept the license agreement then it will start installing,after it is installed go to games and Memory Stick and delete the update.
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.
ok.. so you have the latest version..Do u have enough room on ur memory stick? The psp download sight that is included with the newest version includes psp.com...you can register online via cpu or ur psp.. I have downloaded tons of demos from their sight no problems.. you may have to reformat ur psp. then via wireless install the latest version and try again.. I did this and all downlaods seemed to work fine..I hope this helps..
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.
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.
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.
