Contact Sony @ 1-877-253-SONY for a replacement system, this is a common defect that requires Sony to replace or repair your system.

Restored my ps3 system. Now the ps3 system does not reconize the hard disk. Also will say on reboot, cannot find the hard disk.

If the hard drive is not being detected ether you have lost the file table on the hard drive or the drive is having hard ware problems. The link below will take you through formatting the drive with a computer and seeing if the drive is having hardware problems.

How do i fix the cannot find the correct hard disk problem in my PS3


Test you console with another harddisk to see if it detects the harddisk.

Also try a low level format on the harddisk with a pc so to ensure that there
is nothing left on the harddisk, when reinserted in the ps3, the ps3 needs
to fomat the harddisk, quick fomat will be enoug.
If the original harddisk is still not detected, then your harddisk is defective
and needs to be replaced, if the console also doen't detect the new harddisk then your ps3 needs to return to Sony because the sata controller on the motherboard of your ps3 is defective.

Ps3 was working and all of a sudden will not detect any disk that is put in, game or movie...it's about 2 years old.


perhaps the laser lens is dirty. youtube a great vids telling you exactly how to clean your ps3 laser lens and get your system up and running again.
p.s. the average ps3 life span is about 2 yrs. so the messing up was right on time, sadly
i hope i have helped and i hope it works, let me know how it goes!! thanks

The hard disks file system is corrupted.


If you can still access the PS3 menu, then reformat your hard drive by going to:

Settings > System Settings > Format Utility > Format Hard Disk

If you cannot, then you can try:
1) Remove the Hard drive, connect it to a PC and reformat it.
2) Download the latest PS3 operating system from the Playstation website and store it on a USB drive. Then insert the USB drive into the PS3 and start the PS3, and then install the operating system from the USB.

PS3


Try updating the firmware. If it doesn't work, then take it to a repair shop, there's nothing you can do.

My PS3 will start to load Call Of Duty 5 then just goes blank..But will play other discs.Any Ideas?


When I had a similar issue with my PS2 (GT4 would not load) it was because the disk-reading laser was misaligned. That happened after using the system for many years, so if your system is new, maybe you can skip to the 2nd part of my answer. A slight misalignment could mean that the disk is still read, but the process takes longer. If COD5 requires frequent access to the disk when booting up - as GT4-, that might explain why other games load properly and COD5 doesn't.

Other potential problems: scratched disk (visible scratches), dirty disk (you can clean with a cloth, sweeping radially from the center to the border of the disk), problem with the COD5 data installed in your PS3 hard disk (try reinstalling the game).
