Major problems with my PS3 - error 8002F281

23 Replies 2,759 Views Created 28-08-2010

Hello folks..

 

I recently experienced some strange problems with my PS3. For some reason it wouldn't find any wireless access points, thought i had it connected to my own wireless the day before without problems, even wired connections didnt work as i figured i would try that. So i decided to restore my system, by restoring the PS3 system through the Recovery Menu. But it could not access my harddrive -.-

 

So i figured perhaps if i took the harddrive and connected it to my pc i could format it to fat32 that way,

Which i could after some struggle. I putted it back into my PS3 just to find that when i am trying to restore the PS3 system onto the blank harddrive now. I am getting a strange error message before it starts formating. Saying "There is a critical error in your PS3 system, please contact a tech support. Error code 8002F281" how can i get this fixed? I am really annoyed ;/

Det skal lige siges at jeg er dansker, så selvfølgelig vil et dansk svar være at fortrække;)
Men tænkte at det måske var bedst på engelsk så jeg var helt sikker:)

Gør som den siger - kontakt SONYs support, der er tilsyneladende en fejl som den ikke selv kan rette og de er derfor de eneste der kan hjælpe.

Det havde jeg frygted ;/
Men der er ingen dansk talende PS3 support, vel?
Kan det ikke tænkes at det er noget med harddisken?
Og kan jeg virkelig ikke gøre noget selv?

8002F281 brukar vara en felkod man får när en uppdatering inte riktigt bitit eller ogillar större HDD.

Sony kastade ut en uppdatering som kraschade Ps3or som körde större HDD än vad som standard fans till Ps3 men någon vecka senare kom de ut med en ny uppdatering ( Samma versionsnummer märk väl ) som korrigerade den dumheten.

 

Du kan prova följande:

1. Stoppa i en ny 2,5" S-ata HDD i vaggan o låt systemet gå in i Recovery genom att hålla ned Power/ON knappen tills den pipit 3ggr och med lite tur ombeds du att formatera om din HDD och lägga om systemet på nytt. Fungerar detta så uppgradera med den senaste mjukvaran ( 3.41 ) eller vad den ligger på just nu.

http://se.playstation.com/ps3/support/system-software/detail/item295507/Funktioner-i-uppdateringen-%...

 

Om det är 3.41 du nyligen uppgraderat med o har en större HDD än 120 GB så kan det vara yttligare ett försök av Sony för att stoppa Jailbreaking och support av större HDDs... Isåntall får du mer än gärna posta mer information.

 

2. Fungerade det bra med en ny HDD enligt steget ovan så prova stoppa i din gamla HDD o se om den kickar igång... om inte kanske disken är skadad/korrupt.

 

3. Kontakta Nordisk Film för hjälp, är det en FW som kraschat din PS3 tycker jag de kan hjälpa dig att återställa enheten:

Det har jeg prøvet, efter den laver de 3 bibs og går ind i Recovery Mode og jeg trykker Restore PS3 System, får jeg fejlkoden inden de begrænder 0-100% formateret.

I have tried 2 different harddrives now, 320 GB and the standard 80 GB.
And it's still making problems - Just to be sure which format should i format the harddrive for?
Fat32, ntfs or Linux-swap etc?...

The problem accours before it gets to the 0% ...

 

Should i name the file PS3UPDAT.PUP or PS3UPDATE.PUP btw?

If the 80Gb disc is the one that came with the unit then try to exchange it for another small disc ( 20/40/60/80/120 ) and try formatting it in your Ps3, if that does not help then it most likely is a Firmware flash fkup * pardon my french* :D

 

 

If you can start your Ps3 and all menus shows up good then you could try upgrading the firmware if youre running a lower FW on your Ps3 than you can get hold of a newer Fw.

 

If that does not help, e-mail Nordic Movie :D

Du behøver ikke formatere disken overhovedet, PS3eren klarer det selv - den vil uanset hvad du har formateret HDDen med alligevel selv formatere den, idet PS3 har sit eget filsystem.

Selve firmware filen skal ikke renames, den skal bare downloades og installeres fra en USB stick, omend det næppe giver den store forskel eftersom du ikke kan komme i kontakt med systemet.

Så er din garanti smuttet og du får ikke SONY til at røre noget somhelst ved din PS3, der er ikke så meget andet end at skrive til supporten tilbage, de snakker dansk.

Japp, det er en operation alle må lave og den er ydermere beskrevet i din manual, hvordan du skal tage den ud og opgradere til en større..

Så snart du fjerner det lille klsitermærke der sidder og dækker for en skrue (klistermærket er ydermere tydeligt mærket med VOID Warranty if removed) så ryger garantien og SCE vil ikke længere røre ved den.

Solution Found!

After some personal reseach into the 8002F281 problem. I figured since the harddrive wouldn't load the firmware, and crashed before loading (at not even 0%) it might be a harddrive read error. And i was right!
I bought a cheap 2.5" harddrive enclosure. Plugged it to my PC and Windows had problems reading it to.
It couldn't even be found in Windows 7. So after looking around on google. I found a very easy solution.

Control Panel > Adminstrative Tools > Computeradministation > Storrage > Disk Handling.
The disk was shown, but some reason not "activated" So i right clicked on the disk and pressed
"Mark partition as active" , disesambled it from the enclosure, plugged it into my PS3. And voila!

The harddrive started formating like a charm on my PS3 System!

I contacted Nordic Film and the solution they provided was very incorrect!

At Windows ikke kan se den er ikke underligt, PS3 bruger sit helt eget filsystem som ikke kan genkendes af andre end den selv, ydermere kodes din HDD så den kun kan læses af den PS3 den kommer fra.

 

Vil gætte på at det du aktiverer den i Windows også markerer de bad sectors der har været og dermed forhindrer PS3eren i at bruge dem.

 

Uanset hvad så var det da rart det virkede, syntes dog du sagde du havde prøvet med flere diske og fået samme fejl?

Det er helt rigtigt ja, det var også det der undret mig meget. 320 GB led af samme problem, nemlig at den ikke stod som aktiv.
Det må have været mit PS3 system, der på den ene eller anden måde, har bugget harddiskene, så der ikke kunne loades.

Det skal dog også lige nævnes at den 320 GB hd' som jeg havde liggende, gik død i den eksterne hdd boks senere på dagen. Ret mystisk. Og den måtte smides ud da den begyndte at lave Clicks of death.
