Your PS3 is not downloading updates because you need to deactivate the "Media Server Connection" under Network setting.

You will need an extra 2.5" HDD. use a laptop HDD.
So we all know with this error, it won't allow you to enter in the recovery menu because it would try to re-install the bad 2.8 update firmware again and again once it turned on.
1. So what I did was I swapped the laptop HDD into the PS3, it won't be able to read the HDD but it will allow you to enter the recovery menu now.
(for those who do not know how to get into the recovery menu, here is the instruction http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?message
.uid=39144801
)
2. Once I'm in the recovery menu, I took out the laptop HDD and put back in the PS3 HDD.
3. I also downloaded the 3.01 firmware from the PS website and uploaded into my USB drive and put that in the PS3 slot.
4. At this point, you want to select "system update" and update to the 3.01 version.

For some reason, the first time doing this the system froze at 67% with a new error (but i didn't write down the code). So I had repeat step 1 and 2, but this time when I put back in the PS3 HDD I chose "restore file system" without having to do the system update again. Then it gave me another error at around 65% that said the disk is corrupted and tell me to press OK to format the disk. After it formatted, it automatically install the 3.01 version and the system is fixed.

What dose error code 8002f998 mean on a ps3


Do you actually mean 8002F994 or 8002F997?

8002F994 - To many people downloading the update just sit back until the morning
around 5am - 11am and you should be able to get it.

8002F997 - Trying to Update the Firmware, copying to a file and installing from a USB
drive failed.

Because I found nothing of this error. Please check and let me now if it really is 8002F99.

I have had PS3 for 3 weeks. The first week PS3 worked fine. Then I received messages asking me to download update data. The only game that askd me to do this was FIFA09. The PS3 alway's crashes when I get...


I have to say I haven't had lot of joy downloading this particular update directly to PS3 either.

The alternative approach (which worked like a dream for me) is to use your pc to save the update onto a memry stick, then to plug that into one of the PS3's USB ports and do the update from there.

There's a detailed explanation of how to do it towards the bottom of

PS3 update problems


Hello!!
Ok, no matter how you try to install the firmware it will always write it to the hard drive first before install. Now if it gives you the 800 error while downloading it's your hard drive and it may need to be re-formatted or replaced. If you get an error during installation, then therewas a misplaced piece of code during the download and it needs to be downloaded again.

BTW, the power button default reset is ONLY for the Video output settings.

Hope this helps. Good luck and happy gaming!!
