Okay what drive was in there before ifit was a 60 GB this might not work! You need other parts if you trying to install a bigger drive or you need to install the exact same drive that came out of there.

I hope this helps.

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

Old ps3 wont turn on, want to retrieve game saves for new ps3


You have the yellow light of death (YLOD). You won't be able to turn on your old ps3 until you get it repaired. OR you CAN put your old hard drive in the new system then do the backup option from the system menu. It will have you upload the data to an external usb drive or Ipod or flash memory drive. Then put your new hard drive back in and do the system recovery option. Hope that helps.

The green light on my ps3 works but my blue 1 doesnt show up


I had kinda the same problem, but my ps3 was able to get to the home screen. I never tried the problem out on a ps2 game, but when I put anything BlueRay into the system, I would also get that blank, blue AV screen. Because I was able to access my home screen, I looked around and found that I had corrupted data on my system. Now, I'm not sure how to get you back to your home screen, but if you're ever able to, the only solution that I found was to wipe the hard drive of the corrupted data, by going to the Game option on the home screen, then scrolling down to either Game Data Utility or Saved Data Utility. That's where you'll find it. Unfortunately, this will mean you'll have to wipe your entire hard drive of all your saved data.

I know it sucks, but I hope this helps...
otherwise have people look at it.

My ps3 wont boot past the title screen!!


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

This will fix it for sure.
