Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Posted by Anonymous on
This almost certainly means that your PS3's hard drive has crashed. This is unfortunate, but it's not the end of the world. Since it still powers on, you will likely just need a replacement hard drive. The bad part is that any data or save files you had are almost certainly lost, unless you've backed them up recently.
The PS3 uses a 2.5" laptop-style hard drive which can be obtained in many different sizes. Replacing it is not difficult, but you will need a small screwdriver and a really good walk-through, or someone who knows what they're doing.
My best recommendation is to replace the hard drive yourself, if you feel confident that you can manage it. If not, find someone who knows how and have them do it for you. If you have a computer-savvy friend, they can probably manage it without too much trouble.
Good luck, and hope this is helpful!
