Hi,ive just brought modern warfare 2 , inserted it into PS3 (60gb)" the system decides it needs to update".
At 58% into the update it stops "ERROR 8002F1F9"(please contact technical support).
I like millions of other PS3 owners have spent thousands of pounds on PS1, PS2 , PS3 consoles & games and am disguisted with the lack of help offered free of charge by sony.
My system worked absolutely fine before this update , ive basicaly just spent £40 on a game that when i inserted it into my machine - broke it !
Has anyone out there done the same or similar ?
I've got exactly the same problem with the same error message. Left my system on and re-trying the system update for 24 hours and still hasn't done it properly. Crashes at 65% every time.
Anyone got a solution??? Or anyone point me in the right direction for Tech Support??
i wouldn't hold your breath, i've also got this fault code, and on more than one PS3 , i've tried everything, including totally dismantling the PS3 to remove CMOS battery, and the update still stops at 64%

The error code 8002F1F9 indicates that your PlayStation 3 is having difficulties updating the system software update.
If you are updating of a disk then make sure that the disk is in good condition and free of scratches.
If you are attempting to update via the PS3 system or a storage media device such as a USB stick then reboot the system and then attempt to redownload the update again.
If the above does not help then contact PlayStation Support for further assistance.
