My very nice mother just brought home a "broken" PS3 that she got for free. I look at the PS3 and its covered in dirt and the top is cracked. But when we plugged it in everything worked fine except the disk drive. So we decided to update. Bad idea.
Now as soon as we turn on the PS3 it goes to the update screen but at 66% it stops. Error 8002F14E, please contact support, or something like that.
But, we have no proof of purchase, the warrenty (tape on the side) is void, and it looks like has gotten some abuse.
So I am wondering if anyone has some radical ideas and if you think sony will take it in regardless?

Buy a new one from Argos & send that old one back in the box.

I've done it many a times with loads of stuff

Also, try getting a Laptop Hard-Drive (2.5" 5400Rpm) and it'll install the firmware on it without any trouble.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

I dont live in UK

Then you go to a local store?
Or, buy a new one, switch EVERYTHING over so you have a broken case but a working Ps3 & take the 'new look' one back.

I think I got that error a couple of times. Try connecting the ps3 straight to the router using an Ethernet cable if you haven't already. That worked for me. Although that may be a different error code to mine.

while on the subject of gaming problems, guitar hero drum kit not working
so im trying to get free parts from the website that dont work, eg. symbols

then i find you could theoretically get an entire other drumkit for free if you just say each part isnt working, leaving you with two working drumkits!
not doing it but its possible

call sony, they might replace it, they did with my mates out of warrenty PS3
Nothing of me is original. I am the combined effort of everybody I've ever known.
