I fixed this problem on my ps3 by turning off my internet router, so the ps3 didn't get any signals from it. Then i turned on the console and it worked fine! Then I plug the router back again, and the ps3 hooked automaticly up with the internet. Then a message came up that told me it was something wrong with the harddrive system, i pressed "OK" and then it started to download and fix the problem and restart. After the restart I got the same message about the harddrive and I just started the download one more time, and now it works fine!:D
I reset my ps3. 3 to 4 times. Then i got a message, my harddrive is corrupted. Press PS button on pad to begin to the fix problem. I did this 3 times and was suprised to c it kick back into action. haray.

If you receive an 800 series error code on the PLAYSTATION 3 system,
we recommend performing the following steps which may correct the
Install the Latest System Software Update
To check what version of the System Software is currently installed on
your PLAYSTATION 3, from the PS3 Home Menu go to Settings > [System
Settings] > [System Information]. The system will display the System
Software version number. You can check online to make sure you have
Restore Default Settings
From the PS3 Home Menu, go to Settings > [System Settings] >
[Restore Default Settings]. Once you select Restore Default Settings,
you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through
them and press the X button to restore the settings. After the
operation is complete, you will see the initial set-up screen that
appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3 system. You
will need to go through the initial set-up process before you can use
the PLAYSTATION 3 system.
You should try and update the latest version on your PS3 via internet and see if that solves the problem. Playstation Home is still going through some bugs which is a work in progress as always like any other software programs out there.
Hey fyocksofresh, If performing a system update with your PS3 fails, you may wish to try updating using a USB flash drive and your home computer instead. In order to do so, you'll need to create the following folders on the flash drive itself: PS3 > Update Once this is done, you'll want to visit the website I've provided below to download the most recent software version. The link should be easily found under the "Download the System Software" heading on the page. http://playstation.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/playstation.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=275 Once you've downloaded the file and transferred it onto the USB flash drive, connect the flash drive to your PS3 and choose "Update via Storage Media" instead of the normal internet option. In the event that updating the software this way doesn't work, there are a couple of things you may wish to try before attempting again. 1) Delete all the cache files and cookies from your PS3's internet browser. 2) Power cycle your PS3 (turn it off completely, then back on) before attempting again. 3) Restore the default PS3 system settings. This should clear any potential problems that may be caused by your current system software version. If none of these help, I'd strongly suggest contacting Sony for more information. You should be able to do so by calling their toll-free hotline at 800-345-SONY (800-345-7669) or by filling out an online repair request form. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead.

Just a quickie but are you up to date with the PS3 software?
Not sure what the latest version is, your PS3 will normally notify you when it needs updating, it may be worth checking in the system update settings
Ps3 supports over 1000 ps1 and ps2 titles. Make sure you hook your ps3 up to the internet and download the latest firmware updates.
Odds are your system will be able to play all or most of your ps2 games once you update the ps3 online.
