Ps3 slim says hard drive corrupted but wont work?


You will need to update the hard drive. You have to go to playstations website and find the update for your ps3 dashboard you can put it on a memory stick make sure to save it just how sony suggests. Then you put the memory stick in the ps3 and it will update your hard drive and it should work. Fixxed several with the same problems that way. Hope this helps. If you need help finding the update just let me know.

It wont let me download an update to play online


If the update is a system software update (and not a game update) you can download the update to USB from a computer and then use the USB drive to update your PS3. Instructions are here - http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/pc_update/index.htm and the actual update is here - http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/index.htm
(You would need to click on the red Download button)

For game updates I've had to power off/on the PS3 before to get it to properly download the update. If a wired ethernet connection is available you may want to try swapping between wired/wireless connection to see if you can get the download to work correctly.

My PS3 wont recognise 3.15 update from usb, formated usb to fat32 nothing works. Trying to swap the drive did the recomended instruction change and the system wont restart the new drive,went through all...


tilz1

If your PS3 will not see the update most likely you did not save the file to the right place.

The link below is the the main instructions to properly do the install of the firmware update. However when you save the you will wanted to save the update in a folder named "PS3” on the root directory of the USB drive. Then in that folder make a folder called “UPDATE”. After you have done this then you will want to save the update in the “UPDATE” folder. Doing this should allow your PS3 to see the update.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Where do u get the software update cd's for the ps3 ..looked on website and cant find it anywhere


There are no update discs. There are 3 ways to update... through a game, the internet or a removable memory device. You can put the update on a flash drive from your computer. Hook your ps3 up to the internet and it will automatically prompt you to update or rent a newer game, but it most likely wont have the most recent update on it

Ps3 update 2.5


This is a major problem caused by this update, some wont read discs, other wont load the menus. Consult the Sony website for updates or solutions but a popular solution is to enter recovery mode on the ps3, which restarts ps3 totally but formats the ps3, losing data. If you think this is viable, i have linked to the process but here it is:

Turn off Ps3
Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again
Once the system has been shutdown, re-press your finger until you hear dual beeps
When you hear the 2 beeps remove finger power button
You will be asked to plug in your controller and press the ps button
This will enter recovery menu, which is:

Recovery menu
- restart system
- restore default settings
- restore file system
- rebuild database
- restore ps3
- system update

Each setting does a different function, consult the manual or PS3 site for consequences but be warned: YOU RISK LOSING ALL DATA IF YOU DO THIS. BACK IT UP. This is not a proven fix for this issue as it is the update which seems to have totalled many PS3's but has proven effective and worked when my discs stuck on title screens, i selected first restart system, then restore default settings the 2 times i have done it and it fixed the ps3 but i lost all of my data.

Ps3 wont play anything


Ring Sony. The update to version 2.3 contains a fault. The Blu Ray chip in the console is being allowed to run faster than it safely can, and it burns out. You must ring Sony, they are aware of this problem and will arrange a courier to collect your PS3 and a new unit will be sent out to you.

This is a version 2.3 update problem only.
