When I turn my ps3 on it sounds like it is loading the disk and the fan kicks on and it powers up fine but it will not proceed into the front menu or load the disk, so if my hard disk is bad or became corrupted would it cause the system not to want to work like that? and if so is there a easy fix for this or do I have to replace my hard disk?
Your hard drive has been corrupted. There is an easy fix that will not void any waranties (If you have them). Just buy a new hard drive (Mine is a 500 GB Samsung for $125). Then lookup instructions on how to replace it on the Sony website. It is a very simple process.

then 1. hold down the Power button AND the Eject button at the same time
2. reach around to the back of the console and turn the switich back on
3. wait a few second and the fans will kick on
4.and then the disk should be able to come out
This is to do a factory hard reset on PS 3 all files and systems settings will be deleted and restored back to factory this should hopefully solve your hard drive a problem. depending on the system reformat clould take 3 1/2 hours do a full format as to clear
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format.. You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset)
compressed air ?! well, i guess it must have danified something in your hardware..... try changing your Hard Disk (must be a Sata 2,5'' 5400rpm). else, you should take it to a support centre for verify possibly hardware damage .
I don't know how to turn the system back on yet, but i can get your disk out.
Turn the PS3 off by the switch on the back, hold down the eject button whilst the PS3 is still off, then (whilst still holding the eject button) turn the PS3 back on by the switch on the back. You should hear the fan start up and the disk pop out.
Hold the "Eject" button for ten seconds and try it. Oh and if you have a 40 gb model (2 USB ports) and the Eject button dosent work then try this, Turn off the back of the PS3 (Main power switch) and then hold the eject button (while the main power is off) keep your finger pressed on the eject button flick on the main power switch and it should sound like some HUGE fan don't get scared, wait until the fan stops turn off your ps3, start it up and insert the disk and IT SHOULD WORK
you already have a corrupted hard disk.the best possible solution for that is to replace it with a new hard disk.corrupted hard disk causes the ps3 to freeze bcoz it cannot the load the data that the ps3 needs to boot properly.hope this one solves the problem
