Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Freeze after 2.35 update

I updated (over the network) last night to v2.35. When it finished it asked to hit the PS key on the remote. I get no reaction from the system when I do this from my BT remote control or from the game controllers. I power cycled the unit and I get the same screen (Press PS key) when it comes back on. Is this thing "bricked"?

I just found the fix!  PS3 says "hit PS on wireless controller," but you have to go to Sony PS3 support to find out that you have to do this while connecting the controller to the PS3 WITH THE USB CABLE.  Thanks for the confusion, Sony.

No did you turn off your system when you were updating or were there any other problems while updating?

How to access wireless internet in WII ?


First of all you need to know what is the Network name (SSID) and Password(security key) for your wireless network... Also make sure the firewall is disabled in your wireless router....Now, turn on the Wii...
Click the icon that looks like a house (home) on the Wii remote, you will see the Menu of your WII console...
Go to the settings > Select Internet connection settings > Select Wireless > Now select look for an Access Point in range...
You will see the list of available networks in range.... You must be able to see your network name among the list of wireless networks... Now select your network and select done...
Now it will ask you to enter the security settings... Enter your WPA or WEP key and select done...!
Thats it ! You are done...! Now it will test the Internet connection... After testing the connection, it will ask you to update the firmware, update the firmware and finish the process... You must be able to play the games online...

My update on xbox live updates to the next screen then doesnt finish the download n gives me a status code of 23EF-3143-AD80-0C00-807B-01F7 what do i do?


Here's how I fixed mine. When I got the message stating that the download was unsuccessful I went into settings, then network, and I tested my network connection. During a network test it automatically logs your profile out, but when the test came back good, before it logged my profile back in, it asked me to update again. I hit "a" to accept the update and it worked this time. I think the key is that it has to attempt the update before logging your profile back in. I think the key is updating with the profile logged out, which under normal circumstances you can't do, only during a network test.

If that fix doesn't work you might try going into your network settings in the dashboard and lowering your firewall restrictions, then updating, then putting your firewall restrictions back to what they were.

I tried to watch a blu-ray last night and my playstation said it could not be viewed until the "encryption key" was updated. What does this mean and what should I do?


Hi,

You need to update the system software so the encryption key can be renewed.
You will need an internet connection to the PS3 for this otherwise you will not be able to view the latest Blu-Ray movies.

From what I can remember it is in settings > system update.

Once the system is updating DO NOT switch off the PS3 or mess with the controllers until the update is finished and has rebooted the PS3.



Regards.

Error 80022d11 on ps3 how to fix won't let me play game cause it can't find the trophies!!


Hi

This error only happens with games that collect trophies. Sony released a fix for this very problem in a firmware update V2.6 earlier this year.

The latest firmware is now V3.10 and hopefully this will resolve the issue for you.The easiest method is to download the update right on your PlayStation 3.

In the Settings menu, right at the top, is System Update. Select this and when asked tell it to Update Via Internet. It will then check for any updates. If it finds one the download will begin. The average size of these updates will be in the range of 100 MB so it may be an idea to do something else for a few minutes while it downloads.

Once the download is finished it will ask you to hit X on the controller to start the install. The system will restart and ask you to connect the controller with the USB cable and hit the PS button. The screen that shows up should say Firmware Update with the version number and at the bottom you will see X to start the install. Hit X and you see a software agreement- hit right on the D-Pad until you get to "agree or do not agree". Select agree to start the install. Again, this will take a few minutes. When it is done you will hit X to restart the system. A quick reboot and you are done.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.
