Menu wont load up just stays on the screen saver


This is a common HDD error.
Please contact your reseller if your PS3 is in its warranty.

Note: Giving punches in your equipment is a common sollution but a wrong one, because you can damage even more the equipment. I.E: The HDD needle can break or scratch the HDD surface. Also, warranty is violated whan misuse occurs.

A ps3 start up frezee


finally !! solved the problem :)

unfortunately the story has not the best ending ...
i had an old non-working laptop with 80Gb hdd.

I took the PS3's hdd out and replaced it with the laptop's one. Playstation did not recognize the file system and suggested to format the hard drive. Formatting was done in 10 seconds, after that system rebooted and logon screen appeared again :)

all saves from games, all music, pictures, videos and downloaded stuff are lost :(

fortunately you can re-download all purchased games from PS-Network for free.

now I have a 80Gb PS3 istead of 60Gb ..

hope this will help you too.

P.S. i've seen that Linux has support of PS3 file system. maybe this will help to restore all saved data.. but this is just my assumption
