You might need to update your PS3..

How to Update Your Ps3 Firmware With Your Computer


How to Update Your Ps3 Firmware With Your Computerthumbnail Update Your Ps3 Firmware With Your Computer

So you want to update your ps3, but you don't have your ps3 connected to the internet, well no fear in this article I will show you how to update your ps3's firmware by using your computer.

Instructions
Things You'll Need

Internet
J-Drive

1 First go to this website,http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/SystemUpdates/PS3
and click on the download now button just under the big ps3 and save it to your desktop or any other place that you can get to the file easly.

2 Now get into your j-drive and make a new folder named "PS3".

3 Now click on the PS3 folder and make a new one called "UPDATE".

4 Now put the downloaded update file ito the "UPDATE" folder that you just made.

5 Take the j-drive to your ps3 and plug it into the usb port.

6 Once done with that go to settings, system update, update via mass storage device.

7 Follow the directions on the screen to complete the update.

8 Once done you cna go back to playing on your ps3.

Tips & Warnings

You can do this for every update that you do
Its free to do
If it don't work you did it wrong

Or you could try this too


You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

Well i turn it on then it says hard disks file system corrupted an when i click restore it gets to 100 then goes blank comes back on then said restore and ive done it 6 times


Try it in safe mode.

SAFE MODE:

1. Place you finger on the on/off sensor leave it their until you console turns off then take you finger off the sensor.

2. Place your finger back on the on/off sensor leave it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3. Once the safe mode screen comes on select the option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A PS3 system restore will delete all data except the OS. I recommend backing up your console onto a USB flash drive if possible.


Good Luck!

My playstation wont get past the set up screen, and im lost on how to return it back to the stock defaults... i read guides, but it still gets stuck on a black starry screen after i choose my language,...


Resetting\Restoring it to original settings. WARNING: This will most likely wipe-out all saved games, demos, & etc. Restoring your PS3 to original settings. This is how it's done: Turn off PS3, Unplug PS3, Wait a couple minutes and re-insert plug, Push & hold-down power button until you hear 4 beeps (1,1,2) then let off the power. It should show you a page with restoring options, or a prompt of YES or NO of wanting to enter the Restore Options Page. Choose the one that you would like to do.

Ive done most all i can do...


if you bought this new ti shouldn't really be doing this, I would take it back, but however, if it isn't playing anything at all and it isn't new try restoring it to factory default.

To bring the PS3 to factory settings, you need to use the reset to facorty deafults in the system settings menu, not the restore system under backupdefaults.

you will lose all data because it will fomat the hard drive. I think this might be your best option.

Good luck I hope this works

My PS3 wont allow me to download anything to the harddrive.


This error has been dubed as the Virus error by PS3 users. The hard drive needs to be completely wiped. You can do this by doing the full system restore. (Yea, the one that takes 10 hours) One or more of your files may be corrupted with a very small but lethal file that affects the PS3 but may not affect your PC. If all else fails, try a different hard drive. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!

The only thing you can do is get it replaced or fixed, unfortunately. Take it to wherever you got it with the reciept and they should be able to either replace it or send it back to Sony to get it fixed. If you want to keep all of your data, you'll need to get it fixed - but you can copy all your saved games onto a USB device if you want to (I'd recommend doing this whatever you do, just in case something happens).
