Hi There and Welcome to FixYa.

The easiest and best solution for this is to obtain a 2.5' hard drive (Laptop Hard drive) for you to enter the recovery menu and break the loop. Here's how:

  • Don't worry because you wont lose any data from the laptop hdd
  • Carefully swap and slide it in without tightening the blue screw
  • Access the recovery menu
  • While in the recovery menu, swap the laptop hdd with the PS3's
  • Start/continue the update process
This should complete the update procedure and get you playing again in no time.

Please let me know, Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

I'm updating my playstation but it keeps failing and it said to cantact tech support. The error code is 8002F1F9


I think your problem is due to a Firmware glitch. Try reformatting your hard disk under 'System Setting'. After that, download the latest Firmware update to a USB flash drive, and update it via Storage Device under 'Update'. This should get your Ps3 up and running properly in no time I hope this helps! - Omn1cide
