Had same problem for 1 month. I tore it competly down and cleaned everything. Cleaned off old thermal compound and put new on. Did NOT do a reflow. Put it all back together and it installed just fine. i have an 80gb. I also system restored it to basically brand new. and, updated it with a USB flash drive. Just download update from Playstation website to pc, and save on flash.

Cant update system so i can play blue rays


You can update your ps3 without going online on the ps3. Go to http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/index.htm on your computer and download the newest update. Download it to a flash drive. Insert this into the USB port of your ps3. save it to your hard drive, and then update your system from the XBM. Also, newer games (little big planet 2) have the firmware on them so if you buy/rent them, you can install from the disc.

Downloading ps3 update and I'm stuck on a error loop


hey mate!
i had the same problem as you have with a 40 gb model i bought with a ylod and fixed. after i assembled it i tried to update the firmware but it got stuck in a loop between 69 to 70 % and wouldn`t finish the install. after doing some research i found out the the error number that appeared (cant remember the number now) happned because some hardware wasn`t connected the way its suppose to,when 69% will indicate the blu ray drive,and indeed i noticed that the clip on the ribbon was broken . i had to use a piece of cardboard at first to shove it right to its place nice and tight and started the ps3 again , (failed again because my wifi antenna wasnt connected, but after i connected everything...) the update finished and i was a happy man!
so if your ps3 have been opened in the past , there is your problem.
hope i healped and good luck!

PS3 Update successful,install failed,systemrebooted,error8002F14E


On the playstation 3 site error code tool says this code is an issue updating the PS3 sytem software. Try to start with the hard drive uninstalled then try again installed. If that dont help i would format the hard drive in a laptop and see if it helps. worst casr scenario you could dissasemble the PS3 and unplug tha battery on the main board and see if that helps. Good Luck

When i put a bluray dvd on my ps3 it said i need a encryption key


Create a folder on a CD or USB Thumb drive and name it PS3. within the PS3 folder, create a folder named UPDATE . Download the update and save it in the UPDATE folder. You can get the latest update via the following site: http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/20090624_d69362743142953be7cb44a5fd5cc888/PS3UPDAT.PUP
Be sure to save the update in the UPDATE folder (this IS case sensitive by the way) or the PS3 will not recognize the update data.
Insert your disc or usb thumb drive and go to settings, then system update at the top, then press x. Select 'update via storage media' and start the update. once completed, your system will reboot and you will be good to go.

PS3 update problems


Hello!!
Ok, no matter how you try to install the firmware it will always write it to the hard drive first before install. Now if it gives you the 800 error while downloading it's your hard drive and it may need to be re-formatted or replaced. If you get an error during installation, then therewas a misplaced piece of code during the download and it needs to be downloaded again.

BTW, the power button default reset is ONLY for the Video output settings.

Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!

Download the system update from another place. Once the file on the PS3 is corrupted or incomplete it will only try that file.

You can install the system update using your PC by downloading the update to a USB stick or Memory Stick.

Get the system update here.
