[UnAnswered] I need help with my strange PS3 problem!!
First of all, hi to everyone. I'm totally lost here, so help is badly needed.
The system The good old 40BG fat model
- My playstation totally freezes, when trying to access the PS store. I'm still able to log in with my user/account properly, though (I get the ''signed in'' notation). I'm also able to browse the web normally. The freezing happens when I click the PS store icon, or download history etc. related to the store.
-When trying to start a game, everything goes as normally until I get a message saying: ''Error 80010514, could not load trophy information'' (about). I can still see the game running in the background, playing eg. the penalty tutorial in WC2010, which is on before the game actually ''starts''.
The history/ what I've already done trying to get the system working properly
The problem started with the PS store freeze alone. I didn't pay that much attention to the matter, since I don't use the store all that much. I was able to do everything else normally, including playing games online and using PS home etc. After a while I got sick of the problem and decided to use the recovery menu options 3. Restore File System and 4. Rebuild Database. This didn't fix the problem, so I backed-up some of my savegame files and opted for the ''restore PS3 system'', again with no luck.
Then I got pissed off and decided to leave the PS store alone, again. I got a heureka moment, when I realized that I didn't have the latest firmware installed, and figured that maybe this is why the whole thing freezes. So I downloaded and installed the latest firmware (3.42), but still the problem was there. But after the update, I got the infamous 80010514-error code, stating the trophy problem mentioned above, when I tried to play a game. I tried to sync the trophy information with the server, but it didn't help. I also created a new user/account, but no change.
I did some googling with the error code and it seemed, that it maybe caused by a hard-drive malfunction of some kind, and I replaced the old drive with a new 500GB drive. Still with the same results - no improvement.
(I've also tried different internet connections, wired and wireless, two different IP's and even used an open DNS)
So I was wondering, is there anything I can do to fix this problem? Is there something I could erase the PS3's ''own'' memory (flash memory I guess?) with? To me it seems, that there is something wrong with the OS or something like that, since replacing the hard-drive didn't work and the blu-ray drive is working just fine.
Update: Now I only get the 80010514 error code when trying to sync the trophys (though I have none with the current user). This happens once, but after trying again it doesn't appear anymore. If I reboot the console it does the same thing: First time - error code, 2nd-infinite time - no error.
When the game loads, in place of the 80010514 error code I get a new one, 8002B105 stating the trophy thingie as before.
I do get signed in and that's the strange thing. It states ''signed in'', but clicking the ps store icon causes the whole system to freeze. I can see my friend online, send them messages and browse the web etc. The freeze appears also if I try to view download history etc. in the ps store leaf. It just gets totally stuck. This is quite old problem (maybe month or two), but I wasn't that bothered until the games wouldn't start anymore. And those error codes came up.
