Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My ps3 wont restore!!After the message hard disk file system is corrupted start restore comes up I start the restore and back to the same message.Please help me cant play games,Blu Ray,music or anything!!!Im dieing!! hard disk's corrupted
This is happening because your console is not recognizing the HDD (hard drive) for what ever reason. The corrupted files are about to do damage to your console, and a PS3 will not turn on if it thinks further damage will occur. Here are two things you can do;
1. Try accessing the HDD reset menu. Here's how you do this: With a solid red light showing, hold down both the power & eject buttons. You're going to hear a single beep, then a double beep. Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. You'll get a message on your TV saying "connect your controller using USB". Following all the instructions will lead you to a 6 item menu. You are going to choose number 3. If that option doesn't work, pick number 6. BE WARNED!!! Number 6 will delete ALL of your saved memory! I know that really sucks, but this may be the only way to save your console short of repair. You can "back-up" your saved data using a "USB storage device" Like a memory stick or even your iPod.
If none of this works, or the console just won't let you do the "double button" thing, it'll need to be repaired. You can contact PSR repairs at www.psr1.com. They are really great! They do both warranty & non-warranty repair work for a very decent price. I hope I helped. Good luck, Indra!

The above solution does work, however its option 5 not 6, and you will lose all you unsaved settings and any games saves you have, including playstation netwrk sign in.Basically the console will revert back to the way it was when you bought it

SOURCE: My ps3 won't restore
i am having the same problem also this will keep happening to, all you could do is to call sony so you can send it to them and they will send you a new one in about a week,there is another way to fix it but very complicated i suggest sending it in

This happened to my husbands PS3 also. He put it into another PS3 and reformatted it and then when he got home and put it back into his it asked him to reformat again and this did the trick. It's been working ever since. He called Sony and they wanted him to send back his hard drive and they would either fix or send him a "new" refurbished one for $150. I don't think so!!

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 :(
