Hi, you could try holding down the eject button for over 15 seconds, it resets the drive, that should get the game out, but i'm not sure about the powering off, hopefully it will fix this as well. If not it sounds like a job for sony if its still under a year old, then it should be covered under warranty. If not they can arrange to fix it. Your local number is found on the ps3 website. hope this helps

I did everything except this time now it says "


Try a Restore



PS3 Recovery Menu
  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.

Try restoring the file system (Option 3), then repeat with rebuilding the database (Option 4).

On my PS3 when I try to update it, its keeps on saying error code 8002F994 and that the data is corrupted. Im tying to updated it to 3.5


Your HARD DRIVE (aka: Hard Disk), located on the left side of the unit, may have crashed. You will need to replace the HD.

When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.


Before you replace the hard drive, try:



Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Update using option 6.

My PS3 has been broken for a very long period of time. About 6-9 months now, I've lost track. Every time I turn it on my PS3, it starts with the wavy animation and the colored background, and then the...


Ok, please try the following steps :

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

Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep a total of 3 times and turn off again. Release the power button.

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

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

Step 5. The PS3 will load with a menu with 6 options, choose number 5 "Restore PS3 System" and follow the on screen prompts.

Using this method should sort your PS3 out for you.

Hope this helps

While it was a little hard to follow your explanation I think I can help you. It would be very difficult if not impossible to do this without actually looking at your unit. If you would like to send it in for repair though email me at Jordan@jordanselectronics.com

Yes my playstation 3 is saying hard disk needs to be rebuilt and it only says ok so i click ok another message pops up and says hard **** not found hard disk data will be deleted and lets you selesct ok or...


you could try to remove the hard drive then boot up, then put the hard drive back in and boot and see if that helps or you can try to rebuild the file system and database.

To get to ps3 recovery console to rebuild the database or the file system(neither will format the hard drive), when the ps3 is in standby mode(red light) press and hold the power button till you hear a double beep.

Most of the time the double beep comes after the ps3 beeps once then twice then turns red again when red again release and press again real fast and hold,... this time you will here a "beep" then " double beep beep" then you release and you will have the options to rebuild the database or the file system. basicly keep holding power button from standby till you here a double beep, if it shuts down try again, once you get the hang of it its easy.

if rebuild database and file system doesnt work then you may have to choose yes on the reformat option but it will wont hurt the ps3 itself just anything you have saved on it.

My PS3 wont turn on it just flashes a yellow light then red light that beeps cant get disc out


I found a way to eject the disk:
  1. Power off the PS3 on the main switch on the back of the console
  2. Press and hold the Eject button
  3. Turn on the main power switch
  4. The PS3 LED will go green and the fan will spin at max speed
  5. Wait a few seconds and press the eject button a couple of times, the disk should now eject
  6. watch the PS3 die after 30s or so…
This procedure did not fix my PS3 but at least I got my disk back before sending it to Sony for repair.
