SOURCE: after playing the new call of duty 4 modern

I had the same problem. Dont you alcohol though as it can remove the protective film on the lenz. go to a chemist and just buy some standard lenz cleaner, apply it to a cotton tip and clean the lense in small circular motions. Then dry the lenz with a clean dry cotton tip in small circular motion.

My son turned his PS3 off during a system update and now everything he tries to play won't let him and says error code 8003051e. What do I do to fix this problem?

Ok what I recommend doing is these steps and you should be gaming again:
1. Start Ps3 and in the title menu to Account Management. 2. Click Account Management. 3. Go to System Activation. 4. DO Ps3 System NOT "Psp System". 5. Choose game then select deactivate ps3. (Why? so that way you can log in as your profile later.) 6. Once done go to System Settings. 7. Go down until you see Restore PS3 System. 8. Click it and select yes. (Once you say yes it will restore your ps3 to factory settings, It will take either 2 hours - 8 Hours. Depending on how much memory it has built in.) 9. Once done Download newest updates and let it download. 10. Once complete you should be playing video games in no time. Have Fun Gaming.

Update 3.41 gets to around 20% then fails due to an error of the 801 kind

Hello Jacko, let me try to help you out with this fix. First we're gonna try to update your console from an external drive.
Switch completely off your PS3, also the main power behind the console. Hold on 30 sec. Turn on the main switch wait for the red stand-by led Turn on the console with the front switch and HOLD on it, until your console will switch on then off again Release the switch and now put your finger on it again and hold on it. ATTENTION now: you will hear the first beep, it is the switching on so don't consider it, after 1 second you'll hear another beep then after another second you'll hear 2 fast beep-beep in this moment release the switch. Now your ps3 will ask to plug a controller, it must be connected with the USB cord to the console, and press the PS key. You're in, make your choice. If you still can't get in, try again few more times. IMPORTANT: you can enter the menu only of your last firmware is 2.50 or higher!
Here follow the instruction on how to make the update: Now you need a PC and a USB memory stick. Create a new folder on your USB stick, named PS3 then inside the PS3 folder create a new one and name it UPDATE (just be sure to call those folders exactly as i wrote them: PS3 and UPDATE other than that the ps3 won't found the file) Go here: download the latest firmware and save into UPDATE folder on your mem stick plug the usb device onto a free usb slot on your console restart the ps3 recovery options and choose "System Update" and follow the easy instructions onscreen. If it all went well the PS3 will get the firmware from usb key and hopefully it'll install it correctly. Now, if you're still stuck let's try smth more:
Access the recovery menu again, first try the "soft" option: restore file system.
If it won't fix let's move over, enter the recovery again and choose restore ps3 system. This is a total restore, you'll lose all your data (movies, mp3's, pics, but you won't lose trophies and if you bought smth from PSN you can download your stuff again for free).
IF none of these did the job you have to call sony technical support :(
Please let me know!! Good luck, Peter

Theres a new system update for the PS3, Version 3.40, which doesn't work. After 8 hours it was at 50%, another hour later it stopped downloading. The option for the mediaserver is off, but still doesn't...


Just had the same problem and solved it this way. Download the update fromn the sony site to a pc. Use a USB stick and create a folder called PS3 and inside this folder create another called UPDATE (capitals important and the details of how to do this are on the web site). The turn on the PS3 in safe mode by holding the start button until you hear three beeps. This should take you to a screen with 6 options. Got to option 6 system update and follow the on screen intstructions and you should be ok.

Black screen, system software does not load, when you insert game cd, small cd icon appears on the upper right hand corner and nothing happens. How do you install system software onto ps3? any idea?

If you haven't you will need to go to the far left set of options, where you can choose to turn off the system, and one of the options is system update. Considering the issues you are having, this will most likely fix it. If it has been a while since your last update, expect to wait for a while.
