If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

How can I stop my ps3 from freezing when it is rebuilding the file system. It loads and then goes black on the screen.


Jimmy, there are only a few reasons why your system is freezing up. I'll go down the list and you can double check to see if one or more of these might be the issue. 1) Do you have enough space on your Hard Drive (HDD) 2) Good internet connection. 3)Corrupt files/incorrect file name uploading from USB stick. 4) Are you running a "Jail Broken" PS3? One or more of these could cause your system to refuse rebuilding the files. You may have to restore the system to factory settings and install the latest firmware. Good luck, hope this helps.

When I deleted home on my pS3 I got corrupt files


  1. Insert the PlayStation 3 memory card that has the corrupt file into the memory card slot of your PlayStation 3 console.
  2. Step 2 Turn on the PlayStation 3 without a disc in the console or with the loading lid open. A menu screen will then appear on your television.
  3. Step 3 Scroll through the options of the main menu using the down button on your directional pad and press the "X" button when you get to the "Browser" option.
  4. Step 4 Click on the icon that shows the memory card that you inserted by pressing the "X" button. You will now be able to view all of your memory card files. Locate the corrupt file and click on it with your "X" button.
  5. Step 5 Scroll through the list of options that appear and select the "Delete" option by pressing your "X" button. The file should now be deleted. Restart the PlayStation 3 and go back to your memory card to make sure the file was deleted.   NOTE WITH THIS IT WORK PROPERLY....

PS3 Freezes when it loads certain games


The same thing hapeend to me with Infamous and Killzone 2. It wouldnt happen with MGS4. I replaced the optical lense and the harddrive on the ps3 and it did nothing. I even had a strong fan blowing air into it. Nothing worked. I took an L and sent it to Sony. But thankfully i got the money from gambling craps in Vegas so im not upset about it.

Will not play PS3 Games, HD File System corrupted, won't restore


If you aren't wiling to pay the servicing fee becasuse you've had it over a year or you didn't keep your reciept, then go ahead and either buy a new one, or go to xbox. issues like this happen with any kind of machinery that uses a disc drive.

Ps3 freezes everytime i load a game


It could be a corrupted save file.  Something similar happened to me.  If your game freezes too much while loading a file it can become permanently corrupted.  You should back up your save data on a flash drive or other device.  As for your problem, i'm not sure the cause.  Perhaps you should try other games

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


There is an alternate way to restore your HDD. Turn off your system and when u see the red light, hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 4 beeps (1 alone, 1 alone, 2 together). It usually works on second try. it should show a screen and say hook up controller with a usb cord. Then it should show i think 6 options. Choose the restore option. it should work.

Hope it works and wish you all the best!
P.S.- I just got the 80010514 error on my ps3 and my ps3 games dont work anymore :(
