PS3 Error 80010514 explained

"The error in question is mainly seen within the first month of use, or to put it bluntly, it has the error right out of the box, however, we have seen this occur at almost a year into service as well. Our particular error occurred shortly after installing a new game we had purchased off the PlayStation Store.

The Error reads as follows:

"An error occurred during the start operation. 80010514"

Since this error occurred, we obviously contacted Sony Support. We were informed that the code is not common, and a simple reset of the system, and restoral of factory settings should do the trick. Unfortunately, after the restoral, the error still occurred. So, we dug a bit further, and this is what we found."

I don't understand why you feel the need to spam the site with those kind of comments, sonarus

Feels good to have a good ol relaible 60GB

Breakfast3902d ago

You said your xbox still hasnt broken....if that was me, i would feel like the luckiest man on earth.

Which would make me feel better than having a "good ol relaible 60GB"

iceman29293902d ago

ive my 360 for about a year, with solid usage, and i do leave it on overnight sometimes for downloads and whatnot. i've not had any issues yet. Hopefully im one of the 70 % (or 90% now i guess) that shouldnt have any issues ever.

@ iceman
You don't need to leave the 360 on for downloads. You can turn it off and it will continue to download.

Just so you know.

Breakfast3902d ago (Edited 3902d ago )

I did, too. I downloaded and stuff. It lasted about an year and a half till it broke. Trust one played more xbox then me.

gaffyh3902d ago

I don't know if it's just me, but I would like a Scandisk and defrag option on the XMB, it would really get rid of this problem. And who knows what kinda data is left on the HDD when you delete a game

I think I have had this. I just did a hard reset (flipping the switch in the back) and it was fixed.

I remember getting alot of error messages with the Warhawk beta in summer of 07

I got this error within a month of getting the 60gb for xmas '06. Sent a message to Sony and got a quick reply. I say quick because it was the same day and I figured it would take a few to hear back from them. Anyhow, I believe that it was right after a firmware update and it only happened when I tried to load two different games (don't remember which). Other games loaded fine and usually I would just eject the game giving me trouble and try again until it worked (usually next try).

I never even responded to Sony since it "cleared" up on it's own. Can't remember if another firmware update came along soon after, but never had a problem since. It only happened 3 or 4 times altogether. I was pissed at first, but since it hasn't done it in over a year I'm not too worried about it happening anymore.

I was going to write a blog about this but since this came out I don't think I have to. This error usually occurs right after you exit a game a couple of seconds later you sign out. I'm guessing since Sony doesn't handle everything the NAT (Network Address Translation) will determine what you can do. On XBOX Live NAT issues are almost eliminated since it's a Client server with sub-P2P servers.

In other words since you hold your own server your signal strength will determine what you can do. That's how I solved mine but the hard drive thing is new to me. There are three NAT types and it is usually determined by your signal strength. If you have a certain type like for example you can't do video chat.

To know your NAT type just do a signal test and at the end it'll tell you.

Proxy3901d ago (Edited 3901d ago )

NAT type has nothing to do with signal strength, and everything to do with the setup of your network.

I also disagree that having a higher signal strength would help reduce the likelihood of this error, the wireless protocols have systems in place to ensure the data is transfered unaltered.

Time_Is_On_My_Side3900d ago (Edited 3900d ago )

NAT can avoid certain protocols that's the whole point of the NAT system to let you know what might happen. Depending on where you place your router and you PlayStation 3, stuff like the microwaves can interfere.

So if your signal is very weak then when your signal starts to fluctuate due to obstacles, yes a stronger signal will help.

So if it's at 50% and starts to fluctuate you can get tapped out of a game due to that. If you have so much of a drop in signals lower than 50% when signing out your signal isn't strong enough.

It's like a cell phone signal if there is interference that will contribute to how your phone call experience will be. You're still able to call but you'll have a higher chance of dropping the call if your signal was 100% in strength.

Its never happened to me or anyone else. These articles are just some 360 fanatics trying to find an RROD on the ps3 like with the blinking problem that never existed.

Please report this as fake.

steriotyp3902d ago

it is a Sony exclusive website. Make sure you think about it before you write it. We wouldn't want anyone sounding like a dweeb would we?

DevastationEve3902d ago

that's how you stick up for someone whose had a problem with his PS3? by pretending that it doesn't exist? that his complaint isn't real?sounds a little stupid to me.

ar3902d ago

Just because it hasn't happened to you doesn't mean it doesn't exists. I have a lot of friends that hasn't have their 360:s RROD on them. That doesn't make the issue non existent.
