In this case go to playstation.com and download the update and put it on a thumb drive. Then connect the thumb drive to your PS3 and have it update that way.

Hello

The Sony Playstation 3 suffers from software bugs like any other device. These bugs can cause the PS3 to freeze during game play, which takes away from the overall experience of using the PS3 hardware. In order to combat these bugs, Sony software team frequently sends out PS3 software updates that will defuse any major bugs as they arise.

Go to the official Sony Playstation 3 update website and download the latest PS3 software update. Each update that Sony releases fixes bugs and adds new features.

Connect a USB flash drive or memory card to your computer and create a folder inside of the USB drive or memory card named "PS3." Create a folder inside of that named "Update."


Save the downloaded PS3 update file inside of the "Update" folder on the USB flash drive or the memory card.


Pull the USB flash drive or the memory card out of the computer and connect it to your PS3. Select the "System Update" option from the PS3 main menu.


Select "Update via Storage Media" from the next screen and press the "X" button to install the latest PS3 update on your machine. This will fix any software bugs that are preventing your PS3 from working properly.

WHEN I TURN MY PS3 ON THERE IS A SCREEN ABOUT INSTALLING A UPDATE I WAS AWARE OF IT BUT IT JUST STAYS ON THER AND WHEN I TRY TO CANCEL IT IT JUST FREEZES UP THEN THE PROCESS STARTS ALL OVER PLEASE...


it freezes because your canceling the update its writeing data to the ps3. it is always bad to cancel a install in the middle of it on anything. ps3's usualy take a rediculous amount of time to download and install updates. i say start the update then leave it alone for a while if it takes more than 24 hours you deffinitly got a problem or years worth of updates to install

Just installed latest update and my system keeps freezing


mikemattok

If you system keeps freezing after you installed your system updates it is possible that you did not get a clean install of the update and your hard drive has corrupted data on it. The link below will help you address this. Note if you still have trouble then you have a more serious hard ware problem.

My ps3 keeps freezing up. i bought it less than a year ago


Does your PS3 have the latest update? If you don't have your PS3 connected to the Internet you will need to go to the Sony website and download it to your computer. From there you can burn it to a CD or a Memory Stick to transfer the install file to the PS3. Here is the link to the 2.52 update...

PS3 freezes


There are two solution you can try, it is unlikely there is a hardware fault.
1st soloution try installing all latest updates from system updates.
if this does not work go to system settings> backup then follow the instructions to back up your data i advise using a memory stick or portable hard drive.
When this is done go to system settings and select restore ps3, follow the instructions and your data will be erased, your ps3 will be restored to its factory default with the operating re installed. When your ps3 reboots install the latest updates.
Then try your ps3 out to see if it freezes, if all is fine go to system settings> back and choose to restore a previous backup, you will then have all your saved data back. Then you can enjoy your ps3 :)
if this does not work i advise contacting sony for more advice.
