UPDATE error 8002F147


Try a low format FAT 32 in windows with "HDD Low Format" app. Make sure your downloaded firmware has no CRC errors and put it in the root of your FAT 32 usb stick. Do a System Update from the Safe Mode in your PS3. Following this steps should do just fine. Write back to know how it works.

Easiest way to update your ps3? do you use your usb-slot or the network-connection-slot?


Hi

The easiest way by far to perform an update is when your ps3 is connected to the internet.

1) Go to the settings menu
2) Select system update
3) Select update via internet

You will get a message if your system is already up to date. Otherwise the update will be downloaded and installed automatically for you.

System updates via PC are a lot more complicated - however if you cannot connect to the Net with your ps3 to the internet for some reason you can have a look at this guide on how to do this which is very good.

PS3 stuck in demonstration mode 2.80


Visit the Playstation3 website and download the lastest version onto a flash drive. Making sure you dont have any other software/files on the flash drive.

Create a folder on the flash drive in which to save the update data.
Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the flash drive or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
Install the playstation update into that folder. "PS3UPDAT.PUP"
Your console SHOULD now reconise the update.
If nothing changes restore the playstation fully to its default status.

Do need the internet, just go into your settings tab on the intro menu for the PS3 and hit system update. Use the via internet option and it finds the newest version...2.70. Takes a bit to download but, when it's done you get to enjoy watching the otherwise $30 drink coaster.
