PS3 system update problem

9 Replies 368 Views Created 30-11-2008
Trying to update PS3 with the latest update. The screen says 100% complete, but won't go any further. The green bar remains on the screen and it tells me that it will restart when finished. Wireless connection is working and the network green light on the PS3 is on. Bit worried about what to do next, as I don't want to turn the PS3 off, due to the warning given at the start of the downlaod that if I do, then the system may not work. Help please.

It just says in the top left corner "System Update".

 

then, "Downloading update data"

"Don't turn off the system"

"After downloading the system will restart"

Don't turn it off by the back switch. It will kill it. It's serious. Try holding down the power button.

Thank you Gamerwillz.  Held down the power button and after 5 secs it switched off.  Turning it back on, it went into Insatlling mode and did such. It then updated the data base and now I have 2.52 installed.

 

Don't know what happened to cause the system to pause, but it now works.

 

Thank you to all who contributed to my problem - it is very much appreciated by a 57 year old, old man.

Is it downloading or installing the update? If it's downloading, press O to stop it. If it's installing, just leave it alone and wait.
