SAFE MODE

1) Place you finger on the on/off sensor keep it their until your console turn off. Remove your finger.

2) Place you finger back on the on/off sensor keep it their until you hear 2 consecutive beeps then take your finger off.

3) Choose the last option PS3 SYSTEM RESTORE.

NOTE: A system restore will delete all saved game data. It is recommend backing up your console if possible.

Hard disc corrupted


man Format it and 99% sure that this will not work so my advise after formating your HD and i HOPE that it works with u but if it didn't go to the nearest computer store and buy your self a brand new laptop Hard Disk and plug it in and thats it, just change the PS3 Hard Disk with a new one with ANY SIZE you want ok

Keep getting amessage saying hard disc corrupted.


Sounds like your hard drive is so badly faulty that it cannot be restored, in all likelihood you will need a replacement drive.

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.

THE HARD DISK'S FILE SYSTEM IS CORRUPTED AND WILL BE RESTORED


hold in the power button until you hear 2 beeps. might not work the first time. if no 2 beeps repeat power button again or until 2 beeps. go to restore hard disc and click on it. you will lose anything saved on the hard disc but fixes it 75% of the time. did it myself this morning.

My ps3 won't restore


Ok so with mine I turn it on and it says something along the lines of the file system is corrupted. Restore now and it restores and restarts but it asks me to do it again and again etc. so mine is screwed I am going to have to send it in how you figure out if you need to send yours in is hold down the ps3 power button (MUST BE OFF FIRST) it will turn on just keep holding it until it turns off then do it again but this time while you’re holding it you’ll hear a beep and then 2 beeps after you hear the 2 beeps let go you’ll go into this thing called safe mode ok from here you’re going to press restore file system I think its option 3 it will say "preparing" ok now if it ends up taking more than an hour and it still says preparing unplug your ps3 and go back into safe mode and your
unfortunately going to have to press restore this will remove everything you have on the ps3(Saves, movies, music, etc.) now after you pick that option wait about 4 hours if it still says preparing then I hope you have the warranty cause you’re going to need a entirely new ps3 I have heard of there being a way to restore it with a cd but you will need to do some searching and talk to an expert in that stuff I wish you good luck
