bought and tried to download ratchet and clank 2 and at 95% after 2 hours it stops and says error 800233EF and before this it was coming up with error 80710723 and it's really getting on my nerves, anyone got a clue why this is happening and how to stop it?

And me, paid £50 for AC3 tried 4 times to download and the same error code, Sony you are quick to take my money now be quick and sort this out. It's a shame that the PS3 help is now on my fave list because I have to access it CEO many times!!!

I've just paid 12 quid for Dead Space Extraction and can't download it. Each time I try to download it starts with 250-300 minutes to download. This will drop to 206 minutes rapidly then then slow to about 1mb/sec download speed, (my internet isn't great but not that bad).
All day I've tried to download this damned game. I've had error code 800233EF, code 80029701, and code 80710092. each time the download gets between 30% and 50% I get an error code. I've plugged the ps3 straight into the router, exactly the same.
The only thing that made the download quicker was to click download in background, (in the hope it was a server time out issue). Somehow it was downloading at twice the speed, but screwed up at 19% rather than the 30%-50%.

@lingsguest. I'm screwing over £11.99 you must be pulling out your hair?

Lets hope this issue is sorted soon before the thread gets too much longer.

Normally you can find the error codes online, giving you an idea of their cause, and how to deal with it. The 800233EF code wasn't anywhere but EDWARD-STONE's post when I originaly searched 6 hours ago. This seems to be a new error code, lets hope its's connected to the recent store update, and can be fixed easily.

The US knolwledge base is the best place to search for PS error codes:

 

http://playstation.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/939

 

Mind you they didn't have 800233EF either but they did at least have a message about the PSN having performance issues, which is more than you can say for the EU website.

 

You can also just paste your error code into the search box at http://eu.playstation.com but it doesn't find nearly as many answers as the US site.

Usually, if this happens to me, I just wait a day or so then try again. If it still doesn't work, I wait a day or so then try again. If it still doesn't work after 2 days, I wait another day or so and try again. I'm a very paitient person.

Just got the 80710723 error code.
Top man qwerty6455 probably the best advice yet. The 800233EF code is still a bit of a mystery though.

Maybe this "error code", isn't an error code at all. I mean, we've just had Halloween. Maybe the PS3 is haunted... maybe it's a demonic being or a lost soul inside the PS3 disguised as an error code.

Think about it, isn't it unusual that nobody else has had this error code? And the fact that it isn't registered? 

Maybe Sony wanted to hide something deep inside the PS3's files where they thought it could never be uncovered...

Remember the PS2's no disc screen? It looked like a portal to something evil. Perhaps there is something they are trying to hide within each of the Playstation consoles. Something terrible and wicked. 

800233EF...

5 1/2 hours for a 3500 meg download, got it in the end though.

@qwerty6455 I worked the code out, it is demonic.
800233EF
somehow we've broken the 8th commandment, (don't steal)
take the 002 and make it 200,
times it by the two threes,
200x33=660,
F is 6th letter of the alphabet,
add this and you get 666.
E represents EVIL!!!!!

Don't call your service provider, call an exorcist!

If there's something strange in your neighbourhood... Who ya gonna call...... GHOSTBUSTERS!!!

Or maybe it's a different type of ghost, a Ghost in the shell. Call Public Security Section 9, and get Major Motoko Kusanagi on the case. Maybe another Puppet Master, or Laughing Man is out there.
Somebody is manipulating my cyber brain, or I've got Cyber-sclerosis!
(Anime joke, see synopsis Ghost in the Shell movie, and Ghost in the Shell SAC)

In all seriousness it's pathetic, as stated it took me 5 1/2 hours for a 3500 mb download, averaged 10.6 mb every minute, or 1 mb every 6 seconds!!
I'm glad I got my download done even with the cost in time, but I really sympathize with you guys who spent a lot more money than me for their download.
The longer this thread gets the more notice SONY may take notice.
Good luck guys!

One more thing, checking error codes. If you goggle the error codes, you can get official sites, forums, etc. That's how I found this thread in the first place, an realised it was an unusual code, as this was the only place it had been mentioned.
Sometimes you can be reasured by the fact that people were talking about a code in 2009 perhaps. The reasurance can come from the fact it's perhaps temporary, or that there's a fix. Sometimes just knowing others are having the same problem helps, at least you can be relieved its probably not the PS3.

Hey Hermit,

I would suggest calling the Sony support line and telling them. They may have gained knowledge from others who have called that hasn't necessarily drifted down to the forums. Do keep us posted, though.

 

Like many who come here via Google, you are in the UK but this is the Australia/New Zealand section of the forum. You are quite welcome to hang here with us but you might also try asking over at the English forum in case your problem is local to your locale.
