Hey davefearon,

If you are unable to get back to the Playstation 3 dashboard, your console may be stuck in an installation loop. Unfortunately, this typically means that you would need to contact Sony to arrange physical repairs on your PS3.

On the other hand, if you can get back to the PS3 dashboard, you may want to try updating the console using your PC and a USB flash drive instead. You should be able to find instructions on how to do so in your owner's manual, or can visit Sony's support website by clicking on the link I've provided below.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

I don't know how to update yo iOS 8.0

To update you will need:
1 iOS tablet (iPad, etc)
1 wifi internet connection
1 power source

1. power on your tablet device.
2. connect to the wifi internet connection.
A. Open settings
B. Open general
C. Select "software update"
You should now see what update is available. If you are below iOS 7, you will need to update to version 7 to be able to see iOS 8 as available on some devices.
3. Locate iOS 8.x.x (on my tablet it is 8.1.3 as I wrote this)
Make sure your tablet is plugged into a power source (you don't want it to lose power while updating)
4. Under the iOS update you want to install, select "install now" "download now" or "download and install"
5. Select "agree" when presented with the terms and conditions

You should see your device "downloading update" or "verifying update"

I have seen occasions where it will download but will not install until the process is repeated. (On one device I had to "install now" 3 times because the update failed to download or failed to install.

Cant get into ps3 network store error (8002A240)? never had problems in the past.

If you did a update recently , believe it was 3.55 ?? You have to go back and " agree " to the terms , you know the little check box you aways just click ok but never read , reboot and it should be fine . Google the error number and it will be able to give you more details. Just remember to change your search tools in google ( left side menu ) to " search last 24 hours " this will cut the junk by 99%

PS3 + UPDATE = bad for me

Sounds like your stuck in a firmware update loop.

See what happens when you boot the PS3 with the hard drive out.

Do you still get the same menu on screen?
