    My PS3 will not update

    I just bought a Playstation 3 yesterday and i get it home and i knew i would have to update it. So i connect to the internet and go to the update tab, it gets about 65% done and then says error occured cannot update error# 8002f997. So i thought maybe it was an internet connection or something so i download it onto a jump drive and try and install that way. I got the same error number at about 65-70% of the way through.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Re: My PS3 will not update

    If it's brand new and you don't have anything to lose:

    1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
    2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
    3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
    4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
