This sounds like 80010514. uh-oh. I HAVE THE SOLUTION after 30 hours of working with my PS3, taking it apart, cleaning the Blu-Ray lens, formatting the hard drive, restoring my PS3 deleting all of my data, and changing every setting possible. The solution to error 80010514 is clear to me now. If you have tried to most of the things i have you think that you last option is to bite the bullet and send it in to Sony and pay the $150. BUT What Sony does when they get a system in for repair, is they put in a new hard drive, test it out and send it back! From what i have heard, and experience, this solution is only temporary. YOU NEED TO BUY A NEW HARD DRIVE Sony puts in a refurbished hard drive which wont last very long and you have to send it back in a matter of months. My friend sent in his PS3 that got the yellow light of death (YLoD) 3 times! and out of curiosity, he took out the hard drive before he sent it in. and he got it back with a refurbished hard drive in a couple of weeks.
Trust me I know everything about this error and if you have any questions, e-mail me at

Will not start

Your Hard Drive may be done for. The only thing you can do is buy another PS3 Hard Drive (Ebay, Amazon) and updating your PS3 while you are at it. Once your PS3 is up and running, you can put the corrupt hard drive back in and attempt re-format it (if you want to keep the old HD). However, you may be able to find a technician to do this for you without you having to buy another HD. Up to $70 for this repair would be a good deal. (an HD will cost you just as much)

Couple more tips:
- If you have an old style (Fat) PS3, the repair may not be worth it since they DO have a life span. Eventually, it will die for good. The repairs are only temporary.
- If they want to charge you more than $70, I would just save up another $70 and buy another one. (they will drop to $149 soon)

Hope this helps!

When i switch my ps3 on it says hard disks file system corupted

Right get yourself, 3.5 sata usb dongle. Remove the hard drive from the PS3. Connect, the hardrive into the closure and connect it to your computer. format the harddrive and put it back into the PS3, this works a lot of the time, if this doesn't work, you need a new HDD, just get an identical unit.
