Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

New 500gb ps3 cannot start. The appropriate system storage was not found.

The console froze while I was playing a game. It would not do anything at all and would not turn off. So I held the power button down and then turned it off. I then tried to restart it and this comes up "Cannot start. The appropriate system storage was not found". This is a brand new ps3 console I got yesterday and played one game on.

Unfortantly in your case if you are getting a clicking sound then this means that the hard drive is failing and you will need to replace it.

You can replace it with any standard notebook computer hard drive. The last part in the link below will cover removing the hard drive from your PS3 if you are not sure on how to do this.

Try this : When you put your ps3 on, hold the power button on the front of the console until it beeps 2 times, then the screen should start flashin and after that u'll get the chance to choose what resolution u want and so on.

When you hold down the power button like this, the screen goes back to default. Should fix your problem!

SOURCE: since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot

Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge


or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..

SOURCE: My ps3 won't play ps3 games anymore.

I had the same issue. I had to send it to PSR Repairs to have it checked out. They ended up replacing the hard drive & the laser lens. According to them, both those components contributed to the freezing up & inability to turn back on. Before I sent it in, I was able to get it to turn back on by holding down both the power button & eject button simultainiously. Lie it beep once, then double beep... Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. A menu will come up giving you 6 options. Try option 3 first! you wont lose any saved items with this option. If that doesn't work, you will need to use option 6. This will delete ALL of your saved items, but there's a chance that you may not have to have your console repaired. You can retrieve trophies, games & demos from the PlayStation Store. Good luck! If I can be of further help, comment me back under this heading!

SOURCE: PS3 will not eject the disc nor acknowledge the game being in the console

NEVER EVER TURN YOUR SYSTEM OF WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING ONLINE AND THE GAME FREEZES!!!...

Just try to wait for 30 - 50 sec.
If that does not work than EJECT THE DISC AND THAN TURN OF THE SYSTEM, It has nothing to do with your PS3, Check your connection status and reset all your internet settings BUT NOT THE SYSTEM ITSELF.

If this still doesnt work than there's something wrong with the disc.

Ps3 freezes whenever i turn it on


i have the same problem dude. I played my PS3 pretty regularly for about 6 months, then one day it started freezing. I have been searching for a solution ever since, but all Ive been able to find out is that i can send it to Sony, with $150, and they will fix it and give me a ninety day warranty. But other than that i can't help you. If you found a better way, let me know please.
