Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi the only thing you can try yourself is take the hard drive out to do this switch the ps3 off and unplug it then open the little flap thats on the side of the ps3 and once the flap is off you should see a blue philips (cross head screw) screw you need to undo this then the hard drive will either pull strait out or you may need slide it backwards or forwards depending on which ps you have one you have got it out leave it out and plug the ps3 back in and switch it on wait for it to come on then switch it off again and unplug it.
put the hard drive back in and give it a try and see if it will work.
if after doing the above it still dont work then the chances are you have a corrupt update all you then need to do is go to the official playstation 3 web site and get a usb memory stick and if you look on the site for the updates you will be able to download the latest update onto a memory stick then once you have done this put it into your ps3 and switch it on it should then correct the corrupt data thats on their and get it working again.
if it dont then this would mean you need to get a new hard drive
let me know if you need further assistance ok
