SOURCE: My ps3 had a message

Ok, usually when you fit a new hard drive when you first turn the PS3 on it will take a while to boot up but the first thing it should say is "The hard drive needs to be formatted". It usually says this in about a minute or so of first starting it up.

If this does not happen, try the following steps :

1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)
2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn back off into standby. Release the power button
3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later and then beep twice quickly. When you hear these 2 quick beeps let go of the power button.
4. The PS3 will boot up and ask you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then move onto the next step.
5. A menu will load with 6 options. Choose option 5 "Restore PS3 system". This will then install the PS3 software needed onto your hard drive. Agree to any on screen prompts and then the PS3 should restart to a fully working system.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

SOURCE: My ps3 super slim model CECH-4001B KEEPS ON TURN OFF CAUSE IT SAYS OF OVERHEATING. BUT ITS NOT EVEN HOT. PLUS THE FAN GOES NUTS TOO. HOW CAN I FIX THIS PLEASE HELP ME....?

When the sensor things a certanly temp is reached, it will give this error.
on the other hand it could be the cooling is not optimal, so the processor is really healing up. I would not risk burning it. Let a tech check this. Pernis only Some new cooling paste is needs between the processor and the cooler.

to be sure you should try and check, To check Go into the 'Settings' on the PS3 Menu, then into 'System Settings' Then scroll all the way down near the bottom to 'System Information' Enter it and you will see the ps3 info including how much space is on the Hard Drive

Have a 12gb PS3. Why does it indicate not enough memory?


You need storage, not memory. Memory clears out every time your turn the device off.

Can i add extra memory storage to my 12gb ps3 system?


Yes, you can upgrade your Hard drive (HDD) very easy. There are a few things you will need. First, a big enough memory stick/thumb drive. It has to be big enough to hold your saved games, videos, music, etc. Remember, purchased games can be downloaded again for free from your transaction history. So you don't need to worry about those. Make sure it is a thumb drive that doesn't have anything you might want to save on it. If there is, back it up first on your PC. Here is a youtube vid that will take you through the rest. You can go with as much storage space as you can afford! It has a 12Gb now, you can replace it with a 1TB or Tera-bite. Witch is actually 1,000gb.(There's your space) ^^ PS. I know the version you have is the "SUPER SLIM" because they never brought out a 12gb version in any of the others.
