PS3 System update failure

5 Replies 694 Views Created 04-12-2011

My son has been trying to install the latest update for PS3 for the past few days. It gets to 99% and sticks there - even after leaving it on all night! Turned power off and when re-started the same thing keeps happening1 Help - is the PS3 shot? Only a year old!

Re: PS3 System update failure

Does that mean not doing it via wireless and connecting the PS3 to something via USB? Sorry to sound dense! Appreciate all help - first time I have used a forum for this sort of thing :-)

No :smileyhappy:

 

Download the update from here: http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/support/system-software/detail/item435771/Update-features-%28ver-4-00%...

 

Then follow the instructions for updating via a PC in this thread, Where "storage media" is your USB device:

Hi - no joy as PS3 was in the installing stage - so couldn't get to home page to update via USB - good call though - speaking to Playstation as to the way forward - if there is one! Appreciate your time - cheers :-)
