Follow these steps to try and bring your hard drive back to life :-

Step 1. Turn the PS3 off into standby mode (red light on)

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later and then beep once more and turn off. When the console turns off please let go of the power button.

Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep when you first press it, then beep 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. When you hear these 2 quick beeps let go of the power button.

Step 4. The PS3 will start up asking you to connect a PS3 connector via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then go onto the next step.

Step 5. A menu will then load. Choose option 3 "Restore File System". The PS3 will restart and may report that your hard drive is corrupt, ignore this and click on "OK" to continue. Let the PS3 do its thing and hopefully when it restarts all will be well again.

If this procedure does not work, follow steps 1-4 again but on step 5 choose option 4. If this does not work try again but with option 5.

If none of these procedures work then I am afraid it looks like your hard drive may have become faulty. This will mean you will have to purchase a new one.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Just replaced the black ink PGBK on my Cannon MP810 printer and kept getting error msg "wrong printer head". Took printer head to World Cartridge and they cleaned but still get the same msg....


Dont go to Cartridge World :(. This problem is sometimes caused when a cartridge has been re-filled and re-set too many times, The chip corrupts and causes some very weird messages. Simply try a New Set of Cartridges (Not reconditioned or Refilled). GnL Products in NSW have new compatible cartridges for about $10 each. gnlproducts@live.com.au

Themes not working in my nokia 3110c


hi thanks for using fixya!

On this kind of error, I suggest bring your Nokia 3110c to a Nokia Care Center to further check the error. Perhaps, your firmware is already corrupted with a virus. This is best solution.
