the instructions, and then I'd say try options 3 (Restore File System).
If that doesn't work, try 4 or 5 (Rebuild Database or Restore PS3
If that fails, you could just replace the hard
drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives
(5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts
website; for example, Tigerdirect.
If somehow the new hard drive doesn't fix it, or you don't feel like buying a new hard drive, you could send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe).
If you request the repair service, they send you a box, you put the PS3 in it and ship it back to them. A month or 2 later they send you a fixed/different PS3. Simple, but takes forever to get a working PS3 back which is why I suggest you try a new hard drive first.
If the PS3 built in repair is not fixing the problem this means that you will need to pull the hard drive out of you system and format the drive with a computer. The link below will walk you through what you need to do.
This problem always happen when you switch off your console while it
is saving data or reading data from the HDD, so your HDD file system
damaged, in order to solve this problem you need an external SATA 2.5
hard disk case, extract your PS3 hard drive and insert it in the SATA
2.5 case, plug your hard disk to a computer, you will find that the
whale hard disk is unallocated, so format it with FAT32 or NTFS using
your computer, after that return your hard disk to your PS3 console,
now, your PS3 console will recognize it, and it will ask you to format
it, say YES!!... congratulation your PS3 console is working now
BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA IN THE HARD DISK INCLUDING YOUR SAVES, IMAGES, MOVIES AND ALL YOUR STUFF
If the above solution does not work you would have to buy a new HDD for your PS3
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 :(
Ok, it appears that your hard drive in your PS3 is corrupt and needs to be reformatted. You can get an external hard drive enclosure and do it yourself. You would have to take the hard drive out of your PS3 and put it in the external hard drive enclosure and plug that into a computer with the supplied USB cable and format it. From what I'm reading out there, the external hard drive enclosure has to be for SATA 2.5" hard drive. You could probably replace the hard drive with a larger one just as easy if you wanted to. If you don't feel comfortable with any of this, then its probably repair shop time. I hope this helps.moreover,,Use your recovery disc to reinstall your operating system. This should clean up your hard drive and restore any missing or corrupt files.
If you are getting the corrupted drive message and the built in PS3 options are not fixing the drive then you will have to pull the drive and format it externally with a computer. The link below will help you do this.
