Really the only thing you can do without voiding the warrenty is to call sony and see what the can do. If its still under warrenty then they can just replace the whole system for you free of charge.

Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console My PS3 hard disk is corrupted, It say to restore i put restore and nothing had been restored Bid


Corrupted hard disk? Lets see....

You could attempt to boot up the PS3 in safe mode and restore the file system (should delete any corrupted data). Describing how to start up your PS3 in safe mode would just be confusing, so instead here's a link to the official page on the PS3 Safe Mode feature.

Follow the instructions, and then I'd say try options 3 (Restore File System). If that doesn't work, try 4 or 5 (Rebuild Database or Restore PS3 System).

If that fails, you could just replace the hard drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives (5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts website; for example, Tigerdirect.

If somehow the new hard drive doesn't fix it, or you don't feel like buying a new hard drive, you could send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe).

If you request the repair service, they send you a box, you put the PS3 in it and ship it back to them. A month or 2 later they send you a fixed/different PS3. Simple, but takes forever to get a working PS3 back which is why I suggest you try a new hard drive first.

Anyways, hope you get it working soon!

My screen says cannot start. The correct hard disk was not found. what do i do?


Id say you have a corrupted HDD..
This happens if you turn the ps3 off alot by the switch instead of going to shutdown.

New HDD should fix it

Hard disks file is corrupted


Has it asked you to reformat the hard disc? If you have tried that and it still doesn't work then you may need a new hard drive. Don't worry, for $20-$50 (US) you should be able to fix it. Without knowing what happened before that it's hard to say. But my best guess is that the hard drive is internally damaged in some way. Just take off the small panel on the left side, remove the screw, use the little handle and gently pull to the right then out. It should be a Seagate SATA hard drive 20, 40, 60, or 80GB. Just buy a new one from your local store or online. Make sure that you mark the bad one before you get the new one near it so you don't get tem mixed up. Then remove the 4 little screws on the mountinng cage, switch hard drives, install back into PS3 and it will give you the format screen again. Click yes and it will format, turn off, back on, and you should be all set!!

The hard disk file system is corrupted


When the hard disk is corrupted you can either send the PS to sony or buy a new 2.5 sata hdd, and reinstall the system.

First you can try formatting the HDD.

Contact Sony for further instructions.

When HDD is corrupted data are generally lost.

Regards.

Question about the hard disk


Your hard drive has been corrupted. There is an easy fix that will not void any waranties (If you have them). Just buy a new hard drive (Mine is a 500 GB Samsung for $125). Then lookup instructions on how to replace it on the Sony website. It is a very simple process.

Hope this solved the problem,

PS3 corrupted hard disk


Yes. All you need is a Seagate SATA 2.5" hard drive. It doesn't matter how many GB it has. If you have the 20GB or 60GB model of PS3 for goodness sake keep it!! That model is backwards compatible and will play PS1 and PS2 games. The 40GB unit does not have this luxury. I hope this helps you. Good luck and happy gaming!!
