There is a problem with the hard drive, it maybe damaged or the files maybe corrupt. Best to call your dealer or sony for warranty repairs, its 1 year free warranty repair, if outside of 1 year the repairs are 149usd.

When playing a game or dvd, my Playstation makes a ticking sound like somethings jammed in it. It's possible my daughter stuck something in there and messed something up. It'll play and as time goes on the...


PS3 Clicking noise is associated with the hardware aspect, so that's your starting point it may come from the PS3 fan clicking, so do check out the fan if there's something that might have got stucked in between. Clogs from too much dust or dirt may also cause PS3 clicking sound.

PS3 clicking noise may also come from the hard drive. The hard drive are a bit noisy because of the mechanical parts and moving drive head when reading and storing data. Again, if the noise level is very minimal, there's no worry. PS clicking noise fro the hard drive that becomes too audible may signify that the hard drive is having mechanical problems and may soon broke down. At this point you may want to backup any data you have



I hope this helps you.

HI, PLAYSTATION 3 SAYS HARD DRIVE CORRUPTED DOES


dtub

If you are getting the corrupted hard drive message and the Playstation 3's repair does not repair the drive then you may need to format the drive with a computer. The link below will help you do this. Note if you still have trouble with the drive then you may need to replace the drive as it is having hardware problems.

The consol turns on but will not go to the menu,


It sounds like a hard drive issue. If your system can't read your hard drive it will stay on the blue Playstation screen. After a few minutes it will say it cant load from the hard drive on the screen. Try putting your hard drive in a different machine and see if it boots up.

File corrupted


Just replace the hard drive. If it is under a year old then call Sony customer support and they may pay for a new hard drive. I hope this helps.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
