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.

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%

Error code 80010514

This is caused by the PS3 believing it has the wrong firmware. If you have recently updated, make sure you installed the update by directly downloading it onto your PS3 and not by disc or other method. If you attempt to download and install through the PS3 and still have this error consider contacting Sony's customer service.

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


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.

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?

Ps3 System Update Failed, PS3 boots with error code 8002F14E.

-Open the side of your PS3 where your HDD is. Take the screw out, but leave the HDD in.
-When the update begins, pull your HDD out of the slot. It will tell you an error occured and it tells you to restart your system and try again. Instead, let the count from 60 run out, your screen will go blank for about 30 seconds then it will start back up and tell you that your Hard Drive needs to be reformatted. If you do not get this msg after 30 seconds, do it again until it does! Now, slide your HDD into place again - (make sure your controller is PLUGGED IN) and press the white PS3 button on the controller. It will then ask you to either press start and select at same time OR white PS3 Button - PRESS START and SELECT. Do not agree to user agreements!! Simply hit cancel and it will kick back to the PS3 start up screen.
