Question about Sony Playstation 3 Slim Console

Open Question

My PS3 console suddenly has developed an issue talking to my SKY router since doing an update. I have been using the PS3 linked to my PC as a media server to watch films, etc but all of a sudden it's not reading the media server properly, only showing a handful of the films from the shared folder, when you try to play it throws up error code (DNL 2006) I think it was. Since I did the update another has become available so I did that one too in the hope it would fix it! But sadly it didn't so I still can't watch films through it.

SOURCE: My PS3 doesn't find any media servers. Even though

Hello,

I did many tests with several Media Servers and the following points had often been the Connectiong-Problem to the Media-Server.

  1. Nr. 1 - The Firewall on your PC:
    I tested a few Media-Servers and often the problem with the connection of the devices came up from the firewall (in my case ZoneAlarm).
    To Solve this i stopped the firewall, started the Media Server (e.g. TVersity or MS MediaPlayer) and then I restarted the firewall again.
    After the in 99% of the cases the firewall then asked for creating the rules for the Media-Server Software.

  2. The Router's Port / UPNP-Setting:
    Most of the Media-Servers are needing open ports for the Media-Sharing (e.g. TVersity needs an open Port 41952).
    If the port is not opened for the connection you will in the best cases have very bad Sharing-Performance but in most cases you will at fact of the Port-Problem not be able to create a connection between the devices.
    So you have to open the needed Ports at your Router.

    If you don't want to open each needed port by hand you can also (if supported by the router) activate the UPNP-Function (Universal Plug&Play). With this function enabled each device who needs a open port can open the port by itsself (But don't forget the security problem with this function - Even if it is a fine thing it is really danger).

  3. Problem: New MP3's are not shown on a connected Server:
    Often it is a good Idea to reboot your Playstation and then reconnect to the MediaServer (New MP3's and so are then refreshed).

  4. The IP-Adresses of the Devices
    You have also take to look at the Network-Adresses of the Devices (PS3 & PC). They should be in the same Net-Range (e.g. PS3: 192.168.0.55 & PC: 192.168.0.56).
    The most easy way to be sure that this is done is using the DHCP-Function of your Router. The Router then gives each Device a IP from a predefined Range.
Hopefully I could help you to solve your connection problem with one or even more of the Settings/Points above.
I wish you a nice weekend.

With kind regards,
S. Bosch

SOURCE: PS3 says DNS error (80710102) when i try to connect to the internet with a wired connection

Goto the command prompt bar in the start menu type ' cmd ' then click o.k . A black dos screen will appear type in ' ipconfig/all ' and it will the the two servers you need under dns servers but if your doing a wired connection to your ps3 then you need to manually configure your dns on the custom method of setting up your internet connection on your ps3 as if this is auto config that will give you a dns error. Hope that helps ,I can go into more detail and guide you through it if need to .

Every time its gets to 62% is says an error with (8002F997) ive tired the method by swiching the media sever to disable but that didnt work. what eles do i do


Error code "8002F997" means your PS3 is having issues updating your system software directly via internet. As a workaround you'll use external storage media, such as a USB thumb drive, to transfer the software to your PS3

1. Requirements

- A USB cable (not necessary if using a USB thumb drive)
- A PC with Internet access
- Storage media or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive

2. Downloading and saving the software

- Plug in your USB drive to your computer, and create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Create a folder named "PS3" on the storage media/USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE".

- Download the update data from

http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/2011_0310_91ee193a2fa921a6fce780fc40236e3b/PS3UPDAT.PUP

and save it in the "UPDATE" folder.

Note:

Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3 will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.

-> Location: Save in the "PS3" folder > "UPDATE" folder
-> File name: Save as file name "PS3UPDAT.PUP".

3. Updating the PS3 software

Note:

Do not turn off the PS3, or remove the USB drive, during the software update!

- Insert the USB drive/storage media into the PS3
- On your PS3, from Home Menu (second icon from the left) -> System Update ->Select [Update via Storage Media].

The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.

Make sure that your PS3 is connected properly to your wireless network if you have a wireless router, because sometimes if your PS3 is not configure correctly to work with your network it will have this problem..

Hope that helps.......

On a system update it only goes to 99% and stops and doesnt do anything else


First go into your system settings and find 'Media Connection' in network settings. Disable that and try again.

If that does not work, download the update from your pc to a flash drive or disk and update your PS3 that way. http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/pc_update/index.htm

Lastly, if the above does not work you may need to disable UPnP in your router settings if you are using a router to connect your PS3.

If you do not know your routers IP adress do the following:

-Go to the computer connected to your router, click start and select run in the bottom right.
-In the run prompt type cmd and click ok.
-A black window will pop up. Type ipconfig and press enter.
-The 'Default Gateway' will more than likely be your router's IP address.
-Type that number into your internet browser.
-That will connect you to your router and the menu setups will vary based on the type/brand of router you have.
-Find a setting called 'UPnP', disable it, and try your update again.

Wot error is 80710723????


You have a network/router error. First go to settings, then Network settings, then internet connection settings. If you have a wired connection connection 1 - Custom, then manual settings, then auto detect, then automatic, then Do not set, then manual, DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220, then auto, then do not use, then enable.
If you are using a wireless connection 2 - WIRELESS > ENTER MANUALLY > ( ENTER SSID OR CONTINUE ) > ( CHOOSE SECURITY OR CONTINUE ) > CUSTOM > AUTO > DO NOT SET > MANUAL ( DNS1 : 208.67.222.222 , DNS2 : 208.67.220.220 ) > AUTO > DO NOT USE > ENABLE > X > X
and if neither of these works then try turning off your modem for a few minutes and restarting your ps3 =)

Hi i have a sky router n need my secondary DNS?


If you are using windows, open Command Prompt. Type "ipconfig /all" without the quotations. This will display your IP and DNS address.

If your router is connecting to the internet successfully, you don't need to change DNS settings. For the PS3 you just need to know the SSID of your router and the WEP or WPA password if your network is secured.

Random DNS Error


You may need to manually configure your PS3 connection on the console. Let's see.. I can suggest to first go to your Settings Menu -> Network Settings -> Choose:"Settings and Connection Status List" this will display a pretty detailed information about your connection to your local gateway (router).. Check specifically for Primary and Secondary DNS. In my experience, using the PS3's auto setup for the connection seems to enter the default gateway's ip (labeled "Default Router" on PS3 Status Screen) in place of the real DNS entries..

Question
: Sooo how do you check your primary/secondary DNS for your network? Answer: On your PC, open a web browser and enter your default gateway ip into the browser.. log into your router (assistance can be found in your router manual or by calling your router manufacture). You should see a status page of sorts that displays your ISP's primary/secondary DNS entries.. Simply transfer those two IPs to your PS3 manually to correct the DNS issue.

Hopefully that should resolve your issue!
