SOURCE: My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted

This happened to my husbands PS3 also. He put it into another PS3 and reformatted it and then when he got home and put it back into his it asked him to reformat again and this did the trick. It's been working ever since. He called Sony and they wanted him to send back his hard drive and they would either fix or send him a "new" refurbished one for $150. I don't think so!!

Just keep clicking "OK". I think it's restoring each of your save files one by one. I've had the same problem recently, but after a while it will just start up again with all your wonderful data restored to its former glory.

My playstation turns on but then turns off straight away


check if you have a disk in your PS3. I f you do, try replacing it with one you know works. You can also try disconnecting your PS3 from the TV and power and wait 20 mins before reconnecting - might be an overheating issue.

hope the above helps.

Ps3 keeps saying restoring database it stops at 40% and after like 1 minuite it goes to 100% then it does the same thing again by saying restoring data base.


Hello
Try a router reboot.
1 power down ps3 and any pcs or laptops.
2 Unplug all cables from router.Including power for 1 min.
3 Plug all cables back in the router and power up.
4 Try ps3 again.

Another solution is some data on ps3 may be corrupt.You would need to do a restore of ps3.
You will losse all info stored in ps3 such as username passwords and accout numbers.
So write it all down if you can.
1Turn off ps3 with switch in back.
2 Turn back on,hold power button until you hear 3 beeps.
3 go through setup until prompted to format.
4 Then format.

This operation can take as long as 1 to 3 hours.Also you will loose all info you put into ps3.

My ps3 starts and will run a game for a few minutes but then it will freeze and the screen will start showing green dots dots increase in size too and lines will apear across the screen as well can you...


Be sure to folleow these instructions to the letter, you could damage your PS32_bing.gif if you choose the wrong option! I do not take any responsibility! Please proceed at your own risk! If you read and follow the instructions exactly you should not loose any data! Feel free to ask questions if you are confused so you don’t make a mistake!! Sorry, I had to say it, I don’t want anyone mad at me if they make a mistake, don’t back up their data and erase it, and then blame me…

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The current version of the ps3 firmware has a “recovery console”.
You access it by

1. Start with having the system in standby (redlight is on)

2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.

3. Press and hold the power button again and keep holding, it will beep as it turns on and then it will double beep. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)

4. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button

You will now have a screen with these options

1. Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
2. Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.

CHOOSE THIS ONE 3.Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
4. Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
5. Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
6. System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System



IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT CHOOSE THE WRONG OPTION HERE OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA. The one that fixed my blu-ray drive is option 3: RESTORE FILE SYSTEM


I REPEAT CHOOSE RESTORE FILE SYSTEM


After this, it is going to restart and bring up a screen reading something like “you have Corrupted System Data. Your PS will now replace this data” Then you choose continue and that should be it.

This option reinstalls the system files and drivers inside the PS3 with the original ones that are stored on your hard drive. In this case, it replaced a corrupted driver for the blu ray drive thus fixing my issue and hopefully yours!! This option will only replace all system files thus saving you from loosing any data that’s stored on your hard drive. Again this option does nothing to your hard drive it reads a file from the drive and rewrites it to the PS3 system.

Here is a video of the recovery screen.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0SPmkV-jco

If you want a more technical understanding of what this is really doing continue reading. DO NOT NEED TO READ THIS TO COMPLETE REPAIR. The PS3 does not boot from your hard drive as a computer does. It has a flash memory like a cell phone that stores all system files and system firmware updates that you get when the PS3 updates. This is why reformatting your hard drive will not fix your problem, none of the system files are stored on your hard drive (ex. XMB, system firmware, etc.) nor do they run from the drive. However, your hard drive does contain a full backup of your SYSTEM files and thus when you choose option 3: RESTORE FILE SYSTEM it rewrites the original system files from your drive (which aren’t corrupted) back to the flash memory, which is corrupt, thus solving the problem.
