My ps3 comes up with an error when i am trying to do the new update for FIFA 10. Comes up with error 8002ae22... can someone help in normal people terms on how to fix this


If you receive an 800 series error code on the PLAYSTATION 3 system, we recommend performing the following steps which may correct the problem.
Install the Latest System Software Update

To check what version of the System Software is currently installed on your PLAYSTATION 3, from the PS3 Home Menu go to Settings > [System Settings] > [System Information]. The system will display the System Software version number. You can check online to make sure you have the latest version installed.
Restore Default Settings

From the PS3 Home Menu, go to Settings > [System Settings] > [Restore Default Settings]. Once you select Restore Default Settings, you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the X button to restore the settings. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial set-up screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3 system. You will need to go through the initial set-up process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3 system.

I've gotten the error code 8002F14E after upgrading my ps3 to the latest version. system update stops at 68% and then this error pops out.


It is because you don't have the blu-ray drive connected that is making this fail. Hook it up again then try to update. If it doesn't update that way try downloading from Sony's site to a USB drive and update that way. If the laser is bad on the drive you may just want to get Sony to repair/ replace it, even if out of warranty as that is still cheaper than buying a new system.
If you cannot get to any menu to tell ps3 where it is to download it.
Then go to System Update but just tell the PS3 to go for an external device instead of looking for it over the internet.

Just bought a used ps3. when plugged in, screen stays black, games don't load. finally says push ps button then tells me i need to reload my software....where can i get the 2.42 software? why wont it play...


Instead of updating to 2.42, you should update to the latest version available (currently v2.80). The game probably doesn't work with the current software as the game most likely needs some of the new features in a newer firmware update.

DNS Error 80710102


This is a really annoying bug that’s present even in the current version (2.10 as of this post) of the Playstation 3 system software. When I got my PS3 earlier this month, it was using the oldest version, 1.10, but I couldn’t update it because the DNS error was preventing me from getting online.
After searching online for that error number, I came across a few sites that said the PS3’s DNS server needs to match that of your router. I made the appropriate changes to the PS3 and off I went. There was still a problem, though: it wouldn’t login to the Playstation Network, even though it passed the DNS test. Augh.
Some of the more silly answers I found included resetting your modem, calling your provider, telling the PS3 to automatically find all settings, and turning off your firewall. None of these make any difference.
The only option I had left was to download the update to a USB flash drive. This is a poor solution because not everyone HAS a flash drive. (You could probably do this using the 80 gig model’s card reader, though I wouldn’t know about that.) Anyway, here is a simplified version of the directions I followed:
1. Make a new directory in the flash drive named PS3, then one named UPDATE (both must be in all caps).
2. Save PS3UPDAT.PUP to /PS3/UPDATE
3. Plug the flash drive into the console, then from the XMB: Settings -> System Update -> Update via Storage Media
After this is done, you can delete the stuff you created on the flash drive.
Now, you’re using the most recent software and it still keeps giving you DNS errors? The only solution I’ve found so far is to keep trying to login until it works. That may sound like a shitty answer, but it’s the only one I’ve found that works with any certainty. After searching for a good amount of time and trying every suggestion, brute force is the most dependable answer I found.
Update: I’ve been using OpenDNS (208.67.222.222 & 208.67.220.220) for a couple of weeks now with little luck, but some people say it helps.
Update 2: I solved the mystery: spanning tree. Spanning Tree Protocol is a protocol for preventing loops in a network of switches. I had to turn on spanning-tree portfast on the port my PS3 is plugged into. Chances are this solution is completely unhelpful for most people, but I’m putting it up here anyway, just in case.

Ps3 online


Just a quickie but are you up to date with the PS3 software?
Not sure what the latest version is, your PS3 will normally notify you when it needs updating, it may be worth checking in the system update settings
