PS3 Turns on but will not load home screen with system options.


More than likely your hard drive was corrupted. The easiest way to fix it is to format the hard drive. There are LOTs of different ways to do this but the easiest way is to just hook the hard drive to a computer via a usb cable and then formating it through disc manager.

Here's a quick guide:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

It doesn't matter what file system your choose, just format it, and then pop it back into the PS3. It will recognise the hard drive as a new drive and then will reformat it again so that the PS3 can read it.

That's it! Problem solved.

The drives are SATA so if you don't have a usb cable you could always throw the drive into a laptop as long as it takes a SATA drive and use an XP or Vista CD and follow the same generall game plan: format the drive

OR you could swap the drive into someone else's PS3, it will do the same exact thing. It will recognize it as a new drive and will format it, then just pop it back into your old PS3 and boom. SUCCESS!!!

:)

That's probably the easiest way now that I think about it.

Desire to transfer all game information from PS3 40 to PS3 80. PS3 80 has information on hardrive that I would like to delete first so I can set up with new I.D. etc. from PS3 40. Then after the PS3 40...


Go to Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.

You'll have to hook up an external usb drive with a good amount of space.

Use the backup utility.

Swap the 40gb drive with the 80gb drive.

Follow the onscreen PS3 prompts. A message will possibly pop telling you that you need to download a firmware file etc. If it does download the latest PS3 firmware from here:

http://www.us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3

You'll need to have it installed on a folder on your external drive like this:

PS3-->UPDATE-->firmware file

The playstation will look for the file once you press the SELECT and START buttons at the same time on your ps3 controller.

Follow the prompts, it should be straightforward.

After everything is done.

Go back into Settings, System Settings, Back Up Utility.

Click Restore and then follow the prompts.

Boom you're back in business.

Let me know if you have any other problems and check out my PS3 blog here for tips and other info:
