OK, 1, check your internet connection. 2, ensure you have available space on your HDD. 3, If 1&2 ok, then use your pc and go to psn with a thumb drive formatted to FAT32, download the newest update then follow instructions on screen.
Here is the page you need to get started.

Good luck ^^

My ps3 cant restore the default settings. I have replaced the hard drive and it still wont do anything. what can i do?

Unfortunately, your HARD DRIVE (aka: Hard Disk), located on the left side of the unit, has 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.

My PS3 wont boot. Says "Correct hard drive not

I would suggest:
1) With PS3 off 2) Remove drive 3) Turn PS3 on 4) Let it complain about missing drive 5) Turn off PS3 6) Put drive back in 7) Turn on
If it still complains, try safe boot recovery mode again, choosing option 3, then again with option 4 -- If it still doesn't work, it's not looking good, bit hopefully those should sort it unless the drive really is kaput.

My playstation 3 wont come on. The red light keeps blinking. It was working fine the I turned it off for awhile, when I came back it wont come on.

1)Turn off your playstation 3. If you think your ps3 has been caught by the heat, then wait at least 20 minutes and put it back on again
2) Check if there's any loose cable.
3) Try to put out your playstation's hard-drive, and put it back in. You might want to repeat this 2-3 times for better results.

If this did not work

Send your playstation 3 back to Sony

Solid red light unit wont play

The Red light is due to the HDD (hard drive). There is one of 2 problems: 1. The connection is loose or 2. The HDD is just bad. This was an issue that has been discussed over in the Playstation forums and it seems that re-seating (removing & reinstalling) the HDD has solved the problem for many but some people have just received bad hard drives period. If you reinstall the HDD & it still beeps 3 times & gives you the red light, then you will have to replace your HDD. If I remember correctly, PS3s use Hitachi Laptop Drives. IMO, Hitachi is not well known for good drives. I replaced mine with a 160GB Western Digital drive I got for free a few months ago. I haven't had any problems since. Hitachi makes a good drive, but the ones that fail seem to fail really bad. Western Digital seems to make the best drives and they offer a very good warranty service as well.

Playstation 2 will not cooperate with me

The DVD drive is either bad, going bad or needs cleaning, which rarely works.

Playstation 2 wont play

Could be a number of things... open the door and see if the belt that drives the door is jammed or even the driving motor. that would create a buzz.

Wont play playstation 2 games

This can occur if the Playstation has been knocked or dropped. On the slim version if you remove the screws underneath and remove the top cover you may find the the small drive shaft has been dislodged from the motor. Push it back into place refit cover and screws. This fixed my PS2 with this fault.
