Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Hard Disk is corrupted, would rather not reformat.

Everytime I turn on my ps3, it says my Hard Disk is corrupted, and I have to restore it. When that is finally over, it takes me to the XMB, but doesn't load everything. My PS3 then freezes after a while, so I have to turn it off. When I try to turn it off using just the button on the front of the PS3, the green light blinks for a while and then I hear 3 beeps. My PS3 doesn't turn off after that, the green light just keeps beeping. So I use the switch on the back of the PS3, when I turn it back on, everything happens all over again.

This is to do a factory hard reset on PS 3 all files and systems settings will be deleted and restored back to factory this should hopefully solve your hard drive a problem. depending on the system reformat clould take 3 1/2 hours do a full format as to clear
Faulty memory

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format.. You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset)

Hard disk corruption. says press x to resore but wont load past 18%


Try this:

turn on ps3 press x to restore on 0 % quickly pull out hdd. then wait may take up to an hour a message will come up to formate hdd. put hdd back in and press yes to format this process worked with in seconds for me but can take longer. it does work but you will lose all saved stuff but online stats will still be on the system. good luck hope it works for u to.

or this:
New fix (possibly), and it doesn't take a laptop or a friend's PS3 to do.

Simply remove the hard drive from your PS3, and turn on the console. It should display a screen saying the hard drive will need to be reformatted. Then, plug the hard drive back into your PS3, and allow it to reformat. Your save game data will be erased, but you should be able to use your PS3 again.
_________________________________________________________

whoever has a problem withe their ps3 needing to be reformatted just take out your hdd when the restore comes up, then press x, it will take a will before the ps3 tells u to insert a hdd to be formatted (took me 12 minutes)

good luck

Saying hard disk corrupt then restores but game freezes


Is this a game on your hard drive or a CD? If it is on your hard drive then it quite possibly had a bad download OR your hard drive is on its last leg.

My PS3's hard disk file system is corrupted


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 :(

Ps3 problem


I have looked around for you and the only solution that seems to work for a lot of people is to take the hard drive out, put it into another ps3 (friends etc..) and reformat it, then replace it into your system and it will ask you to reformat it again then all should be well. Other to that you can always buy a new hard drive and replace the old one.

I hope this helps
