Updating playstation 3 undateables which dating agency
No, but there are system updates which apparently crash your PS3.
I've never sent my system in to Sony for repairs, so I know that that's not necessary. But I'd like to focus on an immediate solution for now.. You could try accessing your PS3's factory mode and then choose to rebuild its database, followed with restoring the system settings (if the former shouldn't work out).
You can only update the PS3 manually either by initiating it from the System Update menu in the XMB (via internet or from an insertable storage media), or responding to an update message when you login to your PSN account.
Either way, the update shows its progress on your screen as it happens, and turning your PS3 off in the middle of an update can cause a lot of problems (loss of data type problems).
For quite a long while now, every time I try to update my PS3 in order to get on PSN and get some DLC, the update always, ALWAYS fails at or around 62% and gives me the error code 8002F1F0.
And I can't just forget the update and just play my games, as soon as I turn my PS3 back on, it automatically tries the update again, and won't let me cancel or do anything else.
