Hi,
Thanks for using Fixya.
To solve your problem, you need to enter the Diagnostic mode and rebuild the drive's structure.

Diagnostic Mode:

1)Turn off system
2)Hold power button through 1 startup and shutdown cycle...

3)Release button...

4)Hold power button until you hear two-simultaneous beeps, then release

5)Connect controller with USB cable and push PS button

6)Pick diagnostic option you desire...

7)Allow changes to be implemented...

8)Restart fixed console...


If this doesn't solve your , call Sony and they will replace it for you.

Good Luck and have a nice day

System won't start it says you have a currupted hardrive


You'll need to reformat the console's hard disk. This can be done via the Settings > System section of the XMB. Note: All contents of hard disk including saves will be deleted.

Saying hard drive is currupt and needs to restore


bad sectors on the hard drive then if it wont allow you to format it either by doing a quick format or a full format.

Get a known good hard drive in there to be sure that its not a main board problem. I've seen it where the main board is bad and will give you the same message.

Ps3


Hello.

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!!
I hope this helps!! Good luck.

Ps3 hard drive


New hard drive on the system what size hd do you have? I can get you a good deal on a sony hard drive, If you dont know how to pull the hard drive out check the manual it should show you. (go to an electronic store and tell them you want to upgrade your ps3 hd and they can guide you to 20gb hds to 250gb just for the ps3)
Let me know your progress, Should not be to much 60gb is about 50$ better then 150 via sony!
If you dont want to bother with it let me know I do purchase these systems and can get you a new/used one cheap!

Hard disk currupt


Unfortunately it sounds like you do need a new HDD.
If you only played for 4hrs I can only assume that your machine is still under warrenty- in which case SONY should fix the problem for you.
If not, follow this link for a good step-by-step guide to replacing it, seem fairly straight forward -

Make sure you read the NOTICES section at the top of the page so you know what you are getting yourself into.
Also, check this link to actually see someone doing it before you attempt it yourself -
