How can I fix 8002F334 error in my ps3


I've seen this error code going around for the older PS3's. From what I can gather, it's a HDD issue that can't be cured easily. Here are the steps to take that I found, that seem to work for all PS3 systems.
  • take out the hard drive
  • connect hard drive to pc (running windows 7 64bit, but any windows os should work without other software)
  • open up disk management - in win7 it asked me to make a master boot record, so I did.
  • format in NTSF - that's right, NTSF - don't use quick format
  • shut down pc, take out hd, take usb drive too
  • put hd back in ps3, put usb stick in ps3
  • boot ps3
  • a screen will pop-up saying the hard disk have to be formatted
  • hold start + Select for 5 sec.
  • After formatting the system will restart and the update will start installing
  • configure your ps3 setup - done
  • Remember to get the latest firmware from SONY onto the USB drive.

Why my desk top computer no sound no picture complete dead


Make sure you are getting power to the receptacle, a circuit breaker may have popped. If you have a surge protector then push the reset button. If you have power to the receptacle, then insert windows cd in tray before turning it on, then select boot from cd then hit enter. This will often recover the boot sequence and load the desktop screen. Restart the computer without the cd and see if the desktop comes up. Good luck, had to do this to a desktop unit running Windows XP.

Hi,my ps3 is saying, the hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. the it says press ok. after i press ok, then it says restoring the system, after that it restarts it goes back to the...


here's some ideas:

I fixed my ps3!! All you need is a friend with a ps3!! Swap the hdd's and boot up your friends ps3, format the hdd, put it back in your ps3 and you may need to format it again.
_______________________________________________________


I tried to fix my friend's PS3 HDD that way in mine...it still gave an error every time he booted up his PS3. At that point I stuck the PS3 HDD in my laptop, booted from a Windows CD and fully formatted it that way...stuck it back in his machine...used it to format....finally got his stuff going. Took a little extra time but no problems since.

Cant find a media server on my ps3


make sure your PC and PS3 are networked (you can do this via wireless but using the LAN cable is better if you want to watch films)

You need to set your PC up to be the media server. you will then be able to stream all you music and movies that are on your pc to your PS3

Upgrade your copy of windows media player to 11

once you have done this go to the libary icon. Select sharing and select share with other devices.

Then boot your ps3 up and search for media server

You should see a dialoge box on your telling you a new device want to access. Tell it yes. then you should be able to your view the entire libary.

To access your music etc you always need to make sure media player is running on your pc

Hope this helps.

im guessing you have done this already, but reset your router and modem and switch off your ps3 then boot everything up again and see if that works. if not then try connecting your ps3 directly to your modem (again switch it all off unplug ethernet cables wire it to ps3 and switch it all on again) try it a couple of times, if this works then you have a problem with you router and probably need to do port forwarding or contact sky

HEELP!!! LINUX ON PS3


There should be a command “boot-game-os” you can run from the terminal and it should reboot. Wait, trying to run that command, it says “command not found”… another WTF…
After some more digging, it turns out the command resides in the “/sbin” directory, which users don’t have access to… (even root? man…)
So we need to make a sym-link. You can do this as a regular user, but you need to “su”, then run
cd /bin

ln -s /sbin/boot-game-os boot-game-os
Then, you can just go to the “start” menu in TDL, and there is an option then to “Boot Game OS” - works like a charm, reboot and you are back to the PS3
