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

If it will stay on without the hardrive then the hardrive has gone bad..

My ps3 will read games What can I set the ps3 to get the game to play?


Check this site:

Video card might be broken. Might be replacable for around $110. If you have demos, clear hardrive and the only game I can get to work is Street Fighter 4. I have to rapidly press start to skip intro. Arcade mode doesn't work. The only way to save is by auto-saving.

Playstation cannot start


your harddrive may be failing, When you turn on the PS3 the harddrives parttion sector is read ...this is where info for your desktop and icons is kept. if your hardrive has bad sectors it will result in an erratic mannner such as what you are describing. goto a local gamestop or friend and get another harddrive. insert it into your ps3 and see if that works...but remember all info get deleted off the hardrive

ERROR WITH HARDRIVE


Hit the power button. By "Hit" i mean switch it off at the back of the machine and turn it back on again. If your hard drive still gives errors, try formatting it.
