Some possible solutions, from easiest to hardest:

-Unplug the PS3 from it's outlet, then replug it back in.

-Restore the PS3 to it's default settings by turning off the console, then pressing and holding the power button for around 10 seconds (it'll beep a few times).

-Remove the hard drive from the console, then put it back in. Here's a detailed guide, but basically you use a screwdriver to remove the bottom hard drive panel, then pull the metal handle to pop it out. You don't have to remove it from it's frame; once it pops out, just put it back in.

-Try the PS3 Safe Mode, options 2, 3, 4 and 5 (3 might delete data, 4 and 5 definitely will).

-Replace the hard drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives (5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts website; for example, Tigerdirect.

-
Send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe). They take forever to send it back though.

Good luck!

Iturn on it says cannot start the correct Hard disk was not found


Open up your ps3 on the right site with a small flat screw driver.
Turn out the blue screw with a small cross screw driver, slide the hard drive to the left and pull it to warts of you, note it is a 2'5 inch sata notebook harddrive.
Hook it up to a pc or mac to run a diagnostic check on it to see if it is crashed, by the way you're able to tell by the sound it makes if it crashed.

PS3- cannot start. Correct hard disk not found.


when your ps3 is standing upright the tall way tip it over and look at the bottom there should be a plate that says something about the hard drive. get a flat screwdriver and pry on the right side of the plate. The hard drive is directly behind that plate and is secured by a blue screw. take out the screw and flip out the little u shaped handle and slide it to the right and pull out your hard drive. Try blowing out all the connections and putting it back in hope this helps
