Ok, follow these simple steps :

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep once when you press it, once more 5 seconds later and then once more and it will turn back off onto standby. Release the power button.

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

Step 4. Your PS3 will start up asking you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button. Do this and then go on to step 5.

Step 5. A menu will load up. Select option 5 "Restore PS3 System". This will format the PS3 and reset all settings back to default.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

UPDATE error 8002F147


Try a low format FAT 32 in windows with "HDD Low Format" app. Make sure your downloaded firmware has no CRC errors and put it in the root of your FAT 32 usb stick. Do a System Update from the Safe Mode in your PS3. Following this steps should do just fine. Write back to know how it works.

How do i connect storage media on my ps3 im trying to download real player downloder


gtancie

In regards to connecting external drives to your PS3 they drive has have a FAT format on it for the file system. However most large hard drives do not use this format but USB thumb drives do. This is what I normally use to watch movies to my PS3.

Note the only time I have had to format a large hard drive to FAT is to do a back up of my PS3. If you still would like to format a large drive let me know and I will work up a walk through for you. Note Windows XP and new version of Windows do not have the option to format to a true FAT format. Windows XP does use what is call xFAT but your PS3 will not see the drive.

Ps3 not formating 500gb internal new hard drive?


Hi Eric,

First you will need to connect the hard drive to your computer or a friends, either using a hard drive enclosure or cable

Then you need to format the drive into fat32 format (full format recommended , not quick format)

Then put it back into your ps3 and have a usb flash drive with the latest ps3 software loaded

then you will be able to format the drive and load the ps3 os
