My Playstation 3 will not start. It keeps coming up with an error message saying, "Cannot start. Correct hard disk is not found." Any ideas why?

    Tried taking it out and putting it back in but still same message. Also tried resetting but nothing happened.



    Can I use any hard drive with the PS3 or does it need to be the original 60 gb one?



    Thanks

Yes, You need to re-format your hard drive via your laptop or purchase a new hard drive.. sometimes they become invalid/corrupt and you need to reset it or put a new one in.. I suggest taking it out and put it back in to see if it was knocked loose if not then you need a new hd! a 60gb ps3 original via eba is 40$

Ps3 slimline says cannot start the correct hard disk was not found


Dear Friend,

Have you consider to replace your hard drive?. That might be a good possibility why your PS3 can not start the way it should. Try that and see what happens.

Good Luck!

As with many of us current and former PS3 owners you need to have your HDD (hard disc drive) replaces. sorry
