a few months back, firmware 3.15 BROKE my ps3 (basically bricked it)

i got it refurbed by Harvey Norman.

now with, 3.21, im having the EXACT same error as i did before. 

the code is 8002F165 (data corrupted)

i have tried both update methods, rebuilding database, recovery menu, and full format

and no luck.

i need a fix. i have done everything possible

i am running TPG with a netgear router

SORRY for my english, i am from Spain but i have the solution to 8002F165 :-) update corrupted and no recovery menu :-)

 

SOLUTION TO ERROR 8002F165 - CORRUPT DATA ON THE DISK FOR PS3 UPDATE ERROR

 

The  error occurs 8002F165 corrupt data on the hard disk after, for example,  a system update error. To fix this error we need to verify that the  disk is no internal memory, and then format it to get broken ps3 itself,  for it is necessary to have 2 consoles, the broken and another with  similar characteristics.

 

1) Remove the HDD of the broken PS3 Slim  - according to sony official guarantee, the guarantee is not lost  official remove the disc. (

)

Remove  the disk without removing it from its box. It is only necessary to  remove it from the PS3 SLIM, no more, no screws to remove the box.

 

2) Turn on the PS3 SLIM damaged, which will be without the HDD.

If the message that no disk is found that the error is the HDD and not the PS3's internal memory. Turn off the console.

 

3) Remove the HDD from another PS3 Slim is not damaged.

 

4) The PS3 Slim HDD NOT BAD, is introduced into the PS3 SLIM faulty, and ignited.

 

5)  Every ps3, when you turn the factory has its signature disk formatted  with the PS3 specifically, thus introducing another HDD in a PS3 that  does not get recognized as their own and set an automatic option to  "format disk."

 

6) We have introduced the HDD is not damaged in a  Slim PS3 in the console damaged. So the message is displayed  unrecognized disk, you need to format.

 

7) Without turning off the  PS3, remove the HDD from the console is not broken, and get into the  console broken his own disk and give it to ACCEPT FORMAT ...

 

8)  The process will end and the PS3 Slim damaged by corrupt data in the  disk has been fixed. Now we only have the firmware UPDATE downloaded at a  sony ps3 and upgrade PENDRIVE entering RECOVERY MODE (search google how  to enter the recovery).

I have a PS3 250gb slim. Updating via wireless ver 3.61 I ran into a problem. It kept looping on update till 31% and asks to try again then said error 8002F165.I could not get out of this screen as everytime I turned it on and off it went to the automatic download and got stuck at 31%. I called sony- 135£ fix as out of warranty. What I did was the following:

 

I undid the harddrive and swapped a new cheap harddrive from PCworld- 30£. I pressed the power button for the 3 beeps and then kept pressing till the 2 quick beeps( YOUTUBE has a load of videos on what I mean by this).This finally got me into the recovery menu  with the 6 options.Put back my old HDD and now doing the above steps got me back to the recovery menu with the 6 options.

 

Choosing any of the 6 options failed as I was asked to update via an external source ver 3.60 or later. All my USB's with the folders PS3>UPDATE>PSPUPDATEPUP  didnt work. as it said data corrupted.

 

Then I just wrote it onto a blank CD and did the same thing only using the CD as the external source via the blueray drive to do a SYSTEM UPDATE. It formatted the HDD and Ive lost my data but have a working PS3 all for less that 31£.

Now I am uploading all my photos, movies,music on board to use it as my home entertainment system again.

The lesson for me........never update via the wireless lest the connection is intermittently interrupted. Now its via the USB or a CD.

Hope this helps...........but it worked for me.
