Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

When I turn on the console it says that my hard disk file system has been currupted and will be restored. It then tells me to press the PS button to restore and press O to enter. When I do that it starts to restore and then goes back to the same screen that explains what my problem was in the first place.

Easy fix. Hold down the power button on the system until it turns red. Release, and repeat. Release and repeat, only this time wait until you hear 2 quick beeps. Release quickly and then you go into Safe Mode, Choose option 5, PS3 System Restore. This will also reformat your disk. System will automatically restart when you complete the system setup. Only warning is you lose all login info and possibly content you have downloaded. You are done.

40G PS3 system corrupted

Hello. If the hard drive will not reformat inside the PS3 when you press X, then you will need to remove it and reformat it on a PC using an external device or replace the hard drive. Thanks.

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 :(

My ps3 tells me the hard disk is corrupted

Sounds like you might need a new hard drive. You could try to disconnect it and reconnecting it, but usually it does not fix the problem. just remember you need a 2.5 sata hard drive (might be a good thing, if you ever wanted more hard drive space).
