This issue caused major problems for me. I reformatted the drive/os twice and was about to put this in the trash as I could not update firmware nor get game updates. I went hard wire as well as wireless. I powered down everything overnite as some fixes suggested. I down loaded onto a USB thumb drive several times all failing to the grand 8002F997. All to no avail. I tried one last thing I hopped onto a local wi-fi that was free and not password protected. Bada Bing, firmware took, game updates took and I am downloading all the previous games I purchased online. Funny thing is that I do not have a problem playing online games on my network ?!?!?!?!

If you where trying to update using a USB drive, then redownload the file to the USB and try again. If you where trying to update while connected online with your PS3 console, then just try updating once again.

Make sure your wireless network is online and that you have put the wireless network key in properly as well, so then proceed to what should, I have no problem with mine cause it updates when I need to activate to the prompts.

- This error is caused by an issue with updating the PlayStation 3 firmware by USB drive. Ensure there are no problems with the USB drive. Download the firmware update to the USB drive again to ensure the firmware file is not corrupt. Try the installation of the firmware again. If all else fails, update firmware over the network.

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.

Every time its gets to 62% is says an error with (8002F997) ive tired the method by swiching the media sever to disable but that didnt work. what eles do i do


Error code "8002F997" means your PS3 is having issues updating your system software directly via internet. As a workaround you'll use external storage media, such as a USB thumb drive, to transfer the software to your PS3

1. Requirements

- A USB cable (not necessary if using a USB thumb drive)
- A PC with Internet access
- Storage media or a USB Mass Storage device such as a USB flash drive

2. Downloading and saving the software

- Plug in your USB drive to your computer, and create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data. Create a folder named "PS3" on the storage media/USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE".

- Download the update data from

http://dus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/image/us/2011_0310_91ee193a2fa921a6fce780fc40236e3b/PS3UPDAT.PUP

and save it in the "UPDATE" folder.

Note:

Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3 will not recognize the update data. The folder name must be in all uppercase letters.

-> Location: Save in the "PS3" folder > "UPDATE" folder
-> File name: Save as file name "PS3UPDAT.PUP".

3. Updating the PS3 software

Note:

Do not turn off the PS3, or remove the USB drive, during the software update!

- Insert the USB drive/storage media into the PS3
- On your PS3, from Home Menu (second icon from the left) -> System Update ->Select [Update via Storage Media].

The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.

How to fix error 8002F997


The 8002F997 code is a data corruption error . Before you go and replace the hard drive you will need to try and download the update from a different IP address. That means take your PS3 to a friends house and then download the update from the Sony website. If that does not stop the error from appearing then unfortuantly you will have to replace the hard drive with a new one. If your PS3 is under warranty then you should be able to get it fixed for free.

I try to update the system to 3.56 and it constantly present the error 8002F997 at 70%. It also says that the data is corrupted. What should I do?


Take your ps3 to a friend's house and log on to his wifi. Then retry the update. I got the same error code when I updated to 3.56. It took me over a week (all without the use of my ps3) to find this solution online. But it worked perfectly.
