The best thing to do is phone sony...... Their number is on the website.... they can arrange to fix it under warranty or if thats ran out then they can fix it at a charge... but make sure you explain that it was caused by the update and was fine before it, and if warranty has ran out they may fix it for free anyway. Hope this helps

I am getting ps3 an error has occurred 80023017 when i try to log in, I have seen someone answer that this is a firmware problem but how come i can sign in on a different account on the same console if...

Greetings Mic233,

It seems as though the firmware upgrade hasn't affected that one account.
This may be because:
  1. This is an older account and has bypassed the upgrade.
  2. Sony has made errors in its upgrade (Obviously they have since its creating all these problems).
  3. An older set of Terms and Agreements was signed on this account that makes it bypass future Firmware upgrades.

My ps3 reads system is to hot and shuts down within five minutes. I don't think the fan is working at all. No warranty how can I fix this myself? I know how to take ps3 apart and I've cleaned the dust out...

Try upgrading the firmware as well.. Or doing a factory reset..

The error code could simply be stuck, and an upgrade or system restore may fix the issue if you have already cleaned the fans.

I had just the same problem, when netgear upgraded the firmware it would no longer connect. To solve this i went onto, click support, enter the model number, then download firmware 40.01.37. not the most recent one. Follow the online instuctions after installing the firmware you should have no problem with entering the password.

PS3 Internet Connection/Upgrade System/Online Play

Do an internet connection test. Your NAT type should be either 1 or 2. If not then there are some restricted ports on your router.

I find that putting your PS3 in your router's DMZ (demilitarized zone), solves all connection problems.
