  • erick_75 Mar 21, 2009

    It started after i had just watched a movie on my PS3 and then i started to listen to a little music. After that i turned off the system by going all the way to the left and selecting turn off from the log-in screen. I left for a little while and i came back and saw that my the green light hass not turned off. i turned it off with the power switch on the back of the system. i turned it back on to see if it was okay and i did not log-in to my screen as i have my system to automatically log-in and instead i ended up on this screen that said that mt hard disk was corrupted and that i hado restore it this was the first this had happened it said that it could be restored. i waited and i got 100% and then the screen turned black and stayed that way i waited for a while i thought that it woud let me log-in already but instead it went back to the screen that i was on before saying that the hard disk's file system was corrupt and i thought that this was weird. i ended up doing this five times. i tried turning off the system,i have even disconnected all my wires and it still does not work. please if you guys know a way to help i will be more than grateful to listen.

If you go to the memory, you should find an option where you can factory restore the harddisk and the console. Try those and if it still doesnt help, call sony for assistance.

Ps3 hard disk file is corrupted

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 dist 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
