This will keep happening, all you could do is to call sony so you can send it to them and they will send you a new one in about a week,there is another way to fix it but very complicated i suggest sending it in

My old ps3 got ylod. i got a new slim works perfectly fine. i figured i should put my 60 gb in it to format it so it doesnt go to waste but the formatting stops at 99%. when i put my slim hard drive back...

Formatting writes data to the disk, should a sector of the disk be damaged the hard drive may not report it to he PS3 firmware. If you can install the hard drive in a computer hard drive repair utilities, like spinrite, can often fix such problems.
Connecting it to a computer and doing a low level format there is likely to have better error correction than the built in PS3 formatting.

My ps3 slim has an error report saying that the hard disk has been corrupted. it tells me to restart and the hard disk will reformat. I have restarted 5 times now and it keeps giving me the same error. How...

Just as a guess, it sounds like the hard drive might be dead. If you have another 2.5" SATA hard drive, you could try it in your PS3. To swap out the hard drive, look at the bottom of the console, and right next to the warranty label, you'll see a little door that you can pull open with your fingernail. Open it, and you'll see a little blue screw. Just unscrew that, and put the screw somewhere for safe keeping. With the screw removed, you can now pull the hard drive out from the bottom right of the front of the console, unscrew it from its chassis, and place the new one in and put everything back together. Once you turn on your PS3, you should get the error again, but let it restart, and everything should be fine.

Playstation won't work

that usually only happens when the hard drive was taken out and a different one from a different ps3 was put in its place... the ps3 doesnt recognize the info on the hard drive that was written by a different ps3.

My vp-dc563 camcorder reports disc error every time we put discs in - yes we have tried new ones

Sounds like it's having trouble reading have you tried a lense cleaner disc? IF that doesn't work you will have to find a repair depot. I havent had much luck with DVD camcorders My advice get a hard drive camera or older tape camera you will be happier. Sorry to say that but too many of these hard drive camcorders are even putting errors on the discs and make it very hard to edit in a computer later on.

When I select the gta iv disc it throws me back to the ps3 xmb with the message: ''an error has ocurred during the start operation. (80010006).'' I already deleted the game's save files.

i had a problem like this , we think it was the laser sensor had took a knock from the kid's messing around, everytime we put the disc in it spat it back out , if it's still under warrenty Phone the PS3 hotline they should swap it for free for a new one, you will lose games saves but not any xp online, to fix this download your memory to another temp PS3 or hardrive till sony send a new one .
