Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My PS3 has frozen my controller during an update. They will not turn on, nor will the remote controller work. I am stuck on a screen that talks about not being able to use another OS...blah, blah, blah...I need to acknowledge it's OK to proceed but none of my controllers work. When I hook them up to the PS3 via USB port nothing happens either. I know it's not a battery issue because my remote controller was working fine, and I put in brand new batteries just to make sure. My PS3 is currently unuseable.

Same thing happened to me. Sony refuses to acknowledge it is the update and says it is my console's failure. They want me to pay them at least $160 to fix their flawed software/hardware integration. Looks very poor upon them, and I am highly unfavorable of Sony's PS3 now. At least Microsoft was willing to own up to their flawed system when my XBox 360 showed the red ring flaw, and payed for shipment and console fix along with a nice letter of apology.
Shame on you, PS3.

My remote is frozen. The screen says "welcome to


Does the 550 have a "sync" button to finalize the data installed during online programming and/or did you follow all the steps to complete the proramming for the 550? If you did, and it still doesnt work, I suggest contacting the staff at Logitech or bringing it back to the dealer from whom you bought it for the purpose of clarification or return. Or, maybe the dealer can program it for you.

My screen is frozen in updates. It tells me to press ps button to use my controller. What is this?


Its the very middle button on your playstation remote. If its saying press the ps3 button on your control its possible your ps3 is not frozen but your ps3 remote has just turned off..

Press the very centre button and check the lights on the top of the joypad. Are any lights lit solid? Once the light comes on solid the controller is active. If these do not light youll need to charge your ps3 remote with the usb cable that came with the ps3.

Also if your ps3 remote is lit for number 2, hold down the ps button, very middle for about 5seconds. Should have an option for reassign controllers, select that and put your controller to number 1.

Hope this helps

2. Connect to the software and click 'Downloads' at the top of the screen.
3. Click 'Firmware'.
4. Update the remote

GT 5/PS 3 frozen??


I had the exact same problem (and apparently many others did as well). I did have a Rock Band dongle plugged into the PS3 when the problem occurred. I don't know if that was a contributing factor or not. I unpluged the Rock Band dongle, then connected the (wireless) PS3 controller directly to the PS3 console with a USB cable, then I turned off the system and restarted it a few minutes later. I was then able to click on OK and proceed with the installation.
