How do you reset your PS3?


You can reset the Sony PlayStation 3 to troubleshoot the gaming system or restart after a hard drive freeze. Resetting the PS3 will restore the PS3's settings to to the default factory settings. Consider backing up any data or custom settings before doing a system reset for the PS3 as they might be erased.

instructions:

1
  • urn off the PS3 by flipping the power switch on the back of the system.

  • 2

    Turn the power switch back to the "on" position.

  • 3

    Hold the power button while the PS3 is powering up until you hear three beeps. These signal that the PS3 has received the manual system reset command.

  • 4

    Prompt through the initial setup menu to continue resetting the PS3.

  • 5

    Select "Format" from the system menu to format and finish a complete system reset for the PS3.

    My ps3 say that my hard disk's file system is corrupted so i try and restore it but if just comes back to the same screen, what do i do?


    Hi jakerulz98

    Try reformatting your hardrive again to a FAT32 format. To do so, when your ps3 console is turned off remove the hard-drive and connect it to a PC. Then use this software: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm to format it to a FAT32 format and after that connect it back into the PS3.

    Warning: This will result in the loss of all data on your hard-drive but it's the only chance of using that hard-drive again.

    Hope this helped!

    The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored. It restores but when the playstation restarts it says it again and restores again. Then it all happens again.

    Playstation 3 screen says " cannot start, the correct hard disk was not found." after turned on. will do nothing else. any ideas?


    A long shot but it sounds like your hard drive has basically "switched off". If you have a USB sata hard drive dock I can help but its a bit of a complicated process. You need to remove the hard drive from the PS3 and plug it into the USB sata dock then connect it to your computer. Goto Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Managment. Look in the lower area of the screen that appears for your PS3 drive, probably E:, and look if it says "Not initialized". If it does, right click where it says that then click Initialize Disk. Put it back in your PS3 when it is done and hopefully it will turn back on. You will lose all saved data though as the hard drive will need to be formatted.

    Hope this helps

    WHEN I TURN MY PLAYSTATION ON IT SAY, "CANNOT START THE CORRECT HARD DISK WAS NOT FOUND"


    Try and do a quick format on the hard drive, could of been that somebody switched out the hard drive with one that isn't formatted for the ps3. If it won't let you do a quick format on the hard drive then that means the hard drive that is in the system is bad and would need to be replaced. Once replacing the hard drive then go ahead and quick format it then. It should do it and then you can use the PS3 like you normally would.

    Yes my playstation 3 is saying hard disk needs to be rebuilt and it only says ok so i click ok another message pops up and says hard **** not found hard disk data will be deleted and lets you selesct ok or...


    you could try to remove the hard drive then boot up, then put the hard drive back in and boot and see if that helps or you can try to rebuild the file system and database.

    To get to ps3 recovery console to rebuild the database or the file system(neither will format the hard drive), when the ps3 is in standby mode(red light) press and hold the power button till you hear a double beep.

    Most of the time the double beep comes after the ps3 beeps once then twice then turns red again when red again release and press again real fast and hold,... this time you will here a "beep" then " double beep beep" then you release and you will have the options to rebuild the database or the file system. basicly keep holding power button from standby till you here a double beep, if it shuts down try again, once you get the hang of it its easy.

    if rebuild database and file system doesnt work then you may have to choose yes on the reformat option but it will wont hurt the ps3 itself just anything you have saved on it.

    Hard Disk is corrupted, would rather not reformat.


    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
    Faulty memory

    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)

    File system hard disc corrupted


    the better choice is...

    buy a new hd and replace it, the original go bad quick.
    replacing it resolve all of corrupt problems.

    sometimes, you repair it,then when going to save a game, the ps3 freezes.
