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

Everytime I turn on the ps3 it start installing an update it stop and display error 8002F14E and my system is fresh out of the box 2-8-2011


Open the side of your PS3 where your HDD is. Take the screw out, but leave the HDD in.
(THE NEXT STEP YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR SAVED DATA)

When the update begins, pull your HDD out of the slot. It will tell you an error occured and it tells you to restart your system and try again.
Instead, let the count from 60 run out, your screen will go blank for about 30 seconds then it will start back up and tell you that your Hard Drive needs to be reformatted.
REPLACE YOUR HDD into PS3 - (make sure your controller is PLUGGED IN) and press the white PS3 button on the controller.
It will then ask you to either press start and select at same time OR white PS3 Button - PRESS START and SELECT. Do not agree to user agreements!! Simply hit cancel and it will kick back to the PS3 start up screen.
Then try to figure out if you have a bad blu ray or bad blue cable before you update again

My ps3 is trying to install the new update of 2.80 and an error of 8002F165 comes up and i can't cancel the installing of it


As long as it is still in the downloading stage and not the installing stage then you can safely power down your PS3. Sometimes this happens if the server you are trying to download from is having issues... your best bet is to try again later.

PS3 Retail Demo Mode


In security settings press and hold select + square + L1 and L2


than enter 1 of these following codes depending on your version number


1.5x code: 5202
1.6x code: 7568
1.7x code: 0506
1.8x code: 7712 or 7259

and the ps3 will be unlocked from demo mode.
but be aware that this will only be for a couple of minutes.
so make sure you have the latest firmware the not demo one but the ordinary from the playstation site on a removable storage media
something like a memory stick or flash drive

so you can update immediately after unlocking you ps3! only this way you can completely unlock your system!!
