Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

No picture I have recently obtain a PS3. I went through the initail set up. When I inserted a game a screen came up saying I needed to update to 1.9 b/c the system was on 1.5. So I did, then when the game began loading the screen is black and I hear a ding. It is now doing this everytime a game is loaded. I can still reach the start up screen fine. It is just when a game is inserted and begins to load that the screen goes black. I have all standard equipment. I have set the settings to standard tv. Does anyone know what is going on.

You need to try to Update your PS3 from a memory card. Follow the directions on www.playstation.com to download the update using your regular PC and copy the update to a Memory card that has at least 120Mb of free space.

Go to www.playstation.com. Click on "Playstation 3", then click on "Playstation Network". Click on "System Update". Scroll to the bottom of that screen. Click on the next to last bullet called "Update using a PC" Follow the directions in detail.

My 60 GB PS3 wont run PS2 games


Actually only 60GB PS3s supports PS2 games. But It requires particular firmware. In first instance try updating your system, then dissable the disc autoload function, insert PS2 game, and look at the game section if your soft will recognise it. If yes just try to play

Good luck

That's the best way to do over your PC to your USB. Create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data.
Using a PC, create a folder named “PS3” on the storage media or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named “UPDATE”.
  • Download the update data and save it in the UPDATE folder created in step 1. Select here to start the download.
Notice
Be sure to save the update data as noted below. If the data is not saved in the correct way, the PS3™ system will not recognize the update data.
  • Location: Save in the “PS3” folder > “UPDATE” folder
  • File name: Save as file name “PS3UPDAT.PUP”.
    Update procedure
Notices
  • Do not turn off the PS3™ system or remove the storage media or USB device during an update. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
  • The power button on the PS3™ system front is not active during an update.
  1. Insert the storage media or USB device that contains the update data in the PS3™ system.
  2. From the home menu, select (Settings) > (System Update), and then press the button
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”.
    Update procedure

  • Do not turn off the PS3™ system or remove the storage media or USB device during an update. If an update is cancelled before completion, the system software may become damaged, and the system may require servicing or exchange.
  • The power button on the PS3™ system front is not active during an update.

  3. Select [Update via Storage Media], and then press the button.

    The system automatically searches for and finds the update data saved on the storage media or USB device.

  4. Start the update data.

    Press the button to start the update data. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.

  5. Confirm that the update was successful.
    After the update has been completed, go to (Settings) > (System Settings) > [System Information]. If the System Software field displays the version number of the update, the update was successful.
Hint
You can delete the update data from the storage media or USB device after the update has been successfully completed.

My assassins creed wont load????


If you all are still having this problem, this is what I had to do. There are 2 places where you have to go in to and delete the assassins creed game data. One is the normal save data, but there is also a place with the game data that is corrupted. If you go in and delete both the save data AND the game data, it should reload all of that the next time you put the disk in and allow you to play.
