Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hard drive corrupt. Restores turns off when it comes back says "hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored."
then it will do it again.
The only thing that you can do is to replace your hardrive and then reset it this will clear any error messages that you may have had because of your hardrive being corrupted
Hope that i could Help!

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 :(

Hi if you have the ps3 with the model # cechh01 or cechk01 or cechl01 this happen a lot you need to install the new update in a usb memory card and follow the instructions on the ps3 go to sony for instructions on how to download the update in a removable usb if you have the older models you need to format the hard drive or install another one and format the old drive in another ps3 and this can fix your problem

This is happening because your console is not recognizing the HDD (hard drive) for what ever reason. The corrupted files are about to do damage to your console, and a PS3 will not turn on if it thinks further damage will occur. Here are two things you can do;
1. Try accessing the HDD reset menu. Here's how you do this: With a solid red light showing, hold down both the power & eject buttons. You're going to hear a single beep, then a double beep. Once you hear the double beep, release both buttons. You'll get a message on your TV saying "connect your controller using USB". Following all the instructions will lead you to a 6 item menu. You are going to choose number 3. If that option doesn't work, pick number 6. BE WARNED!!! Number 6 will delete ALL of your saved memory! I know that really sucks, but this may be the only way to save your console short of repair. You can "back-up" your saved data using a "USB storage device" Like a memory stick or even your iPod.
If none of this works, or the console just won't let you do the "double button" thing, it'll need to be repaired. You can contact PSR repairs at www.psr1.com. They are really great! They do both warranty & non-warranty repair work for a very decent price. I hope I helped. Good luck, Indra!

Please refer to this link for ways to troubleshoot the hard drive and sometimes if you are lucky you can recover the problem - however if these solutions fail the unit will have to be sent in for repair I am afraid.
