    PS3 does not boot up, does not look at hardrive during start up, but the right hand memory card slot. Is there a way to power down bios to reset to factory, since apparently my drive assignments were changed with 2.6 update.

    Look guys this is no joke I have repaired the most expensive software related products in America. The problem is not my system it is Sony's problem. Hint number 1 when they were first released there was a lot of heat generated with the unit running. Sony released an update that meant that we did not need the turbo fans????

The problem was caused by sony, trying to disable some stolen units. It might be time for a class action suit, so that they will honor their mistake.

Hi there sony do not repair the ps3 it goes to a repair center that sony has there all qualified to repair these consoles and there all in different locations around the world to where you live , sony has only one repair price this is a standerd charge they give every one for every ps3 console to go in for repair if it is out side its warranty
if your console cant be repaired they will excange it for another new or recon console.

when the console goes in for repair you will lose all data you can request its backed up but they will only say they will try more often than not it will be erased

hope this helps thanks

I have corrupted data on my file, i dont know how it got there in the first place, but i want to know how to get rid of the corrupted data without erasing my file


In regards to the address corrupted data on the PS3 hard drive the link below will help you address this. Note the first part takes you through the PS3 internal options but if these do not fix the problem then you will have to pull the hard drive and format it. After that if you still have trouble then you may need to replace the hard drive.

Let me know it you have any more problems or questions
