Hello there!

Right, I may have a few things that you could try out

 1) You say you have tried option 4 and 5 so, try going into Safe Mode and select option 6, download the update data ont a removeable disk drive then press START and SELECT togeather, let it re install the update and it should work!

2) If the above fails, back up all your data, enter Safe Mode and select Option 2 then select Full system format, that should work.

3) If that hasn't resolved your issue, keep your backup data and get a PlayStation replacement by calling 0844-736-0595 and explain that you have tried all troubleshooting problems but please note that they may charge you at least £110

Re: Corrupted File System

Just to add to this post but if you get the ps3 replaced by sony it will be a refurbed console that you get back. The refurbs are consoles that have been received by sony broken. They then repair them and send them out as replacement consoles. The only problem is with this is although sony have fixed the console it might not last much more than the 3 month warranty sony gives you for it.

 

My advice would be to buy a second hand slim model. It will probably last longer and you can always ask the seller if the console has been repaired before. True you don't get any warranty but you would a better deal than going for the sony option.
