Your update file is most probably corrupt or wireless internet is disrupting.

Try re-downloading it again

Also try the option to update it via USB instead of wireless connection.

USB is usually very fast and reliable

PS3 software update will not install fully, quits at 47%.. PS3 attempts reinstall but always stops at 47% with an error message. Cannot use PS3 while this problem continues.


Make sure you are using a wired connection, and that you have enough memory for the software update. If that doesn't work, take it to a friends house and download from there. If that doesn't work, there is likely a software issue that only sony can fix.

On our PS3, when you press the soft power up button, it tries to start but th blue light changes to yellow and it stops, leaving the Red power off light flashing


Hello,

You can try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as
well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

Good luck.

PS3 Update successful,install failed,systemrebooted,error8002F14E


On the playstation 3 site error code tool says this code is an issue updating the PS3 sytem software. Try to start with the hard drive uninstalled then try again installed. If that dont help i would format the hard drive in a laptop and see if it helps. worst casr scenario you could dissasemble the PS3 and unplug tha battery on the main board and see if that helps. Good Luck

My ps3 keeps coming up with error 80710723 every time i try and update my system i tried it a number of times the most it ever gets to is 53% then the yellow light on the bottom of the console goes out...


It's having problems communicating with the server from the sound of it. Try hard wiring your router to your ps3 and then see how you go. If that solves the problem then you may have to look at setting up port forwarding on your router

My ps3 tries to upade when i turn it on but fails


make sure the console is connected to an active internet connection, wired ifs fasted but wireless is fine, it will just be a little slower to download the update

if it asks you if you want to install the update say no, and check all conections, phisically and check using the network connection settings in the setting menu

try to manually activate the updater while in the main manu your self instead of an automatic update

How can i download pictures to my ps3 with ipod touch or pc if its not possible?


What happens is that when I get onto a software they say an update is necessary. I confirm "OK" then the PS3 exits to the XMB screen to download the update, but then it stops downloading after 4%-30%.
