Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

New update, hard disk

I downloaded the new update. I was playing cod4, then when i was coming off the PS3, i pressed the PS button which brought to the homepage.

Then i pressed quit game. The game went off but all i could see was my background with no icons, it had froze.

i left it for a minute but nothing happened, so i turned it off at the back.

The next day i turned my ps3 on and it came up with a message. It said something about the hard disk, so i clicked ok. Then another message came up saying that it needs formatting and i would lose all my data. I didn't want to lose it all so i clicked no. Then i logged on, my theme and background was still there and i signed in, but there was no saved data.

I tryed call of duty and it said i needed to update so i did, when it got to 100% it came up saying an error occured.

What should i do?

Call Sony ASAP. A hand full of people have had a problem with update 2.40 and they took it off of the network. They will fix you up. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I've got exactly the same problem i'm running 3.10 on my PS3 and have tried restoring the system doing a full format of the drive you name it. nothing works. The update 3.15 downloads fine but it gets to 21% of the install and brings up this 8002F147 error. I can't play any Blue Ray films on it or go on the web as all it wants to do is run this update which it can't. Additionally I also can't turn on via
the PS button. It's a 80GB one that i've just brought off ebay.

Ps. I called Playstation support at the weekend and they advised that I take it around my friends and try running the update which made no differnce which I thought it wouldn't as i've tried it via flash etc which downloads fine it's an install problem......

Please help......

New hard drive on ps3


You're almost there Robert.

What the PS3 is asking for is this:

PS3 Firmware 2.60

You've got to download it and then place it into two folders like this on an external hard drive or thumbdrive or cd if that's all you got.

PS3--UPDATE

If you look at the instructions you'll see what I'm talking about. Make sure the folder names are all capitalised or else it won't work.

Once you have this in place press START and SELECT on the controllers and it will allow you to format the hard drive.

Let me know if you get stuck or have any more questions.

Best of luck!

Whats wrong


does this only happen with CoD4? If so you may have a faulty disk. Goto your local blockbuster and rent CoD4 and see if it does the same thing. If it does, you need to RMA your ps3 877-253-SONY and request a RMA.

If it doesn't you got a bad game disk.

PS3 wont read disks


ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.
