PS3 startup problem

When the PS3 is switched on a massage is displayed on screen "The hard disks file system is corrupted and will be restored" and you are requested to click X or the PS button to begin use. When you do this the message changes to Restoring.... Do not turn off the system. After a couple of minutes the screen goes blank and then returns to the original message. Please help?

    The same problem goes for me, I bought my console about 4 days ago, and unfortunately yesterday I tried to open it, then it gave me the same message. I think a machine like this, with that high price and from that big company should be more robust :(

    Same problem here. Upon starting up it gives a message that says the hard drive is corrupted and that the system will try to restor it. It commences restoring. when it gets too 100% it comes back up with the corrupted hard drive message and repeats all steps described.

Hard disks file is corrupted


Has it asked you to reformat the hard disc? If you have tried that and it still doesn't work then you may need a new hard drive. Don't worry, for $20-$50 (US) you should be able to fix it. Without knowing what happened before that it's hard to say. But my best guess is that the hard drive is internally damaged in some way. Just take off the small panel on the left side, remove the screw, use the little handle and gently pull to the right then out. It should be a Seagate SATA hard drive 20, 40, 60, or 80GB. Just buy a new one from your local store or online. Make sure that you mark the bad one before you get the new one near it so you don't get tem mixed up. Then remove the 4 little screws on the mountinng cage, switch hard drives, install back into PS3 and it will give you the format screen again. Click yes and it will format, turn off, back on, and you should be all set!!

Displays hard disk file system is corrupt on startup but will not restore


It is entirely possible then, that your hard drive has malfunctioned and is going bad. It can be replaced by a laptop 2.5" SATA (Serial ATA) hard drive of your choice of size. If under warranty I suggest contacting Sony for service or replacement info.

Hard disk's file system is corrupted.


Most likely your hard drive is completely corrupted. It could be as simple as a new Hard Drive replacement or as complicated as a motherboard issue.

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 :(
