I am getting error code (8002F147) on my PS3
Alright so I have 2 PS3s. My friend let me borrow his broken ps3 to try to fix it. The problem is that he unplugged the AC unit during the update. So now I have error code (8002F147). Everytime I tried to restart it, it still went to update. It goes to about 36% then it gives me the error. It's an endless loop of errors.
IS THERE ANY WAY TO FIX THIS BESIDES SENDING IT TO SONY???
I found this answer on a forum (link below):
- take out the hard drive
- connect hard drive to pc
- open up disk management - in win7 it asked me to make a master book record, so I did.
- format in NTFS - that's right, NTFS - don't use quick format
- get the rom of whatever version you were on before you upgraded - i had to search, but i found the us 3.30 rom
- copy that rom to usb drive in folders PS3 ==> UPDATE ==> put rom named PS3UPDAT.PUP here
- shut down pc, take out hd, take usb drive too
- put hd back in ps3, put usb stick in ps3
- boot ps3
- a screen will pop up. press select + start
- another screen (i think) later, press select + start
- configure your ps3 setup - done
Hey man as I mentioned before my nephews PS3 had the same problem. All I did to fix it was:
- tear the entire PS3 apart to clean it and re apply thermal paste.
- While I had the mobo out I thought about removing the PRAM battery to see if that would fix the update error.
- After I put the PS3 back together I turned it on WITHOUT a hard drive then when the missing HD error came up I inserted the HD then turned the PS3 off.
- I turned it back on and the update ran right off the batt as usual except it was updating much faster. I just let it finish and it actually finished the update and booted into the home screen.
All his saved data as well as media was still there and it is now running fine. I do not think you have to do the whole thermal paste deal but just remove the PRAM battery for a while then try what I did with the HD. I hope this helps. Good luck!!
error code 8002f147 refers to a problem with your disc drive/blue-ray player, if you have recently had it repaired from ylod or other problems that's probably whats done it, there are little plastic clips connecting the lead from the main board to your drive and i bet you find its broke or if its not been fixed lately i think you may need a new drive!!!
