Well, to begin with. The PS3 isn't a strong computer system. If you have noticed, there are some videos you can't watch, or even see. This is because PS3 won't let you update the Adobe Flash player. I recommend staying away from trying to connect to facebook from the PS3. It's a hit and miss at the best of times.

MY PS3 WON'T LOAD ANY DISC! This just happened today, and all of my games are in good condition. I recently got the newest update of the PS3 firmware. All I get is a never ending loading circle of doom. D:...


no worries bud...gotchya covered...first off..if u cant access the ps3 main menu at all then u cant delete the update singularily..if u could access the main menu, just go to the item u updated...(i.e playstation home) and delete it and download and reinstall again...if not...then heres the fix...dont worry it wont erase anything, just corrupted data...which it sounds like u have...k....1. Start with having the system in standby (redlight is on)
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Press and hold the power button again and keep holding, it will beep as it turns on and then it will double beep. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)
4. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
You will now have a screen with these options (I have attached a picture of this screen below)
1. Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
2. Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
CHOOSE THIS ONE 3.Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
4. Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
5. Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
6. System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT CHOOSE THE WRONG OPTION HERE OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA. The one that fixed my blu-ray drive is option 3: RESTORE FILE SYSTEM
I REPEAT CHOOSE RESTORE FILE SYSTEM hope it helps ya!

PS3 Turns on but will not load home screen with system options.


More than likely your hard drive was corrupted. The easiest way to fix it is to format the hard drive. There are LOTs of different ways to do this but the easiest way is to just hook the hard drive to a computer via a usb cable and then formating it through disc manager.

Here's a quick guide:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

It doesn't matter what file system your choose, just format it, and then pop it back into the PS3. It will recognise the hard drive as a new drive and then will reformat it again so that the PS3 can read it.

That's it! Problem solved.

The drives are SATA so if you don't have a usb cable you could always throw the drive into a laptop as long as it takes a SATA drive and use an XP or Vista CD and follow the same generall game plan: format the drive

OR you could swap the drive into someone else's PS3, it will do the same exact thing. It will recognize it as a new drive and will format it, then just pop it back into your old PS3 and boom. SUCCESS!!!

:)

That's probably the easiest way now that I think about it.
