Ok so i turned on my PS3 today and it said my 'hard-drive' was corrupted ,
I started watching videos on youtube and saw that some people said take out the hard-drive which i did and still idnt work.
And other people told me to hold the on button until the PS3 turns off and hold it untill it makes three beeps and then release.
THIS STILL DIDNT WORK!!!!!
the screen wont change to the safety menu it just stays on the 'corrupted harddrive' screen and i've tried it four or five times at this stage.
can anoyone help please
yea just as TrUe1ShOtRiCan said,if you can not access the recovery menu then most likely you HDD is dead,try reseating it a few times and try the recovery menu a few times but more than likely it is just a dead drive.
I would presume this model is old.
A non-recovering corrupted hard drive means that the hard disk itself is damaged. Unfortunately, due to a hard drive's mechanical construction, ALL hard drives are bound to fail at one point or the other.
What I would suggest is try a backup hard drive and see if it works.
