Has Starhawk Affected My PS3? Error Code - 8003051E

[ Edited ]

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but I suspect the amount of times starhawk has crashed my ps3 and then have had to "restore corrupt files" has eventually taken it's toll on my ps3 and affected it with error code 8003051E

In short, about 4 days ago, everytime I turn my ps3 on, I have to wait for 3 minutes as the xmb loads up. The yellow hdd light is continuously on for this period and the ps3 is frozen as it tries to load up it's thing. After 3 minutes, it unfreezes and then I can continue. My controller also doesn't connect wirelessly now. It can turn the ps3 on but then it flashes. So I have to wire it up, and then it connects.

So today I tried freeing up some space to see if it would help. I first tried clearing up my friends list. I then found that the bottom 6 people in the list never had their info loaded. It would never load. I turned my ps3 off and on again and those people still didn't load. So I now have accidentally deleted them off my list thinking they haven't been on for months when probably it's been hours.

I then tried to delete some videos. I can't. I can't delete any videos. Error code 8003051E. In fact I can't delete anything. Not music, not even photos. So now I can't even free any space.

So why do i think starhawk has done this? Cos it's essentially all I've been using my ps3 for. And I've had starhawk crash on me in the region of 15 times, and I've had to do the mandatory "restoration of corrupt files" that takes 20 minutes about 8 times after it's crashed. I'm not a programmer, but it's a funny coincidence that all I've been playing is starhawk, it's crashed a lot, and now my ps3 is buggered.

It's also a beta which means things like this can happen. I have no idea how to fix this, however I can still use my ps3 normally. I just have to wait 5 minutes after turning it on and be in the knowledge that I can't delete anything at all.

Does anyone else have a similar experience?

Forgot to add that when I googled error code - 8003051E, it said the code exists due to a previous saving error. The Columbo in me can't help but put that and the crashing together.

I know others have experienced crashes. Would appreciate any feedback on similar problems

i have had the system hard drive reset  probably about twenty times over the weeks but fortunately i have not received this error code. only thing i would suggest is deleting the game data but you say you cant delete so im all out of ideas sorry i cant help shadow.

are you on an original chunky ps3 or a slim?

im not surprised you thinking this way as when it does the hardrive check it says that something failed to save to the drive correctly and commences the scan.

Well I only get the code when I try to delete something. I haven't actually tried deleting the game yet... because at the moment the game works and I didn't want to run the risk of not being able to redownload it for some reason. While it works I can live with it. When the beta ends I'll try and delete it.

I have the fat ps3. It's a refurbished model that I've had for about maybe 4 years now. I know it's the old fat model but it's treated me well and it's just a big coincidence it's suddenly messed up after these system crashes.

Something tells me I'll have to buy a new one soon

I know a beta's a beta but it shouldnt break your console for crying out loud

If you think this beta is hard on PS3's you should have tried the Uncharted 2 beta.

 

I have never heard PS3's get as loud as an xbox until I played Uncharted 2 beta.

This makes me very worried... I'm on an older mashine like yours... Please post up after the end of the BETA if deleting the game file helped the situation in any way. Mine too must have crashed up to 20 times or more in the same way. No other action on my PS3 has ever caused the thing to crash like that. As in, it never crashed at all, up until this game.

Well I actually deleted the game file and it's save file yesterday, and then redownloaded the game, installed it, updated it....and it hasn't made any difference. I still get the error

The more worrying thing is there are now some things that I can't even SAVE. A friend sent me a pic from GT5 in a message an I couldn't even save it. So I don't know what else I can't save. I think however everything game related isn't affected. It only seems to be music videos and photos.

I have a refurbished 60gb UK ps3, the original type that played some ps2 games. I've upgraded it to a 500gb hdd. It's worked perfectly for me for years and it's only since these beta crashes that it's been affected. A crash wouldn't bother me usually but it's the nature of the crash. I have never seen that corruption check message come up before and it's done it too many times for my liking. That seriously needs to be fixed

Of all the bugs, this one is the most important by far. You should post a link to this thread in the bugs report thread.

I only had one crash so far but I don't get to play much. I assumed the Report Error message was something new from one of the system updates. Also have a refurbed 60GB so might wait and see if there's any more info on this. hope your machine's salvageable.

well we all get the freezes and crashes quite a lot i brought my fat ps3 40gb while my 60gb got fixed of ylod in the end i got an 80gb out of the repairer who couldnt fix it anyway my 40gb system(which has a 320gb hdd in) laser unit has packed in before i got starhawk, but it froze on me on xmas eve and all i have played on it is starhawk and warhawk since i had no disc drive, it has now developed ylod so i am without MY ps3 until the parts i have ordered get to me ! I am beginning to think that it was starhawk and my continious play that has done this :xCry:

 

Have you tried holding the power button down for the two beeps taking you to a menu instead of powering up, choose the third option, hold it down for about 7 or 8 seconds, the first beep dosent count!!

maybe try backing up your stuff and doing a system reset/hard drive wipe?

As a last resort I'll try the formatting eventually. But since I can't copy any media from my ps3, I don't know if I'll be able to backup. My ps3 works well enough for the moment, I'm just going to run it into the ground before I have to buy a new one. But while I can play, then it's ok.

Just FYI everybody, this is important, i mentioned this in the bug report but next time you guys have starhawk crash on you and it asks to run a corruption check, proceed with the check. Tonight, starhawk crashed on me yet again, so I shut down and powered up and was greeted with the corruption check message. This time I noticed you could skip it by pressing circle. Since I felt this check is what damaged my ps3 before, I skipped the check in spite. I then chose to play starhawk, except it went to a black screen and nothing loaded. The game itself corrupted. My ps3 crashed, nothing loaded, and I couldn't even turn the ps3 off from the front. It did the Beep, Beep, Beep and just would not turn off, so I had to shut it down from the switch on the back. I've had to delete starhawk again for the second time now and redownload it.

Just FYI to everyone out there, if you get a corruption message when you crash, run the corruption check, don't skip it

This beta is killing my ps3

Just an update in case anyone cares, I've now had to fully format my hard drive. I played warhawk today and discovered that since the starhawk beta messed my ps3 up, it makes warhawk nearly unplayable now because the screen freezes every now and then for 3 seconds.

So now I cant delete any media on my ps3, I can't save any media on my ps3, I can't copy any media to anything, it's wrecking some of my games, my friends list won't load up properly, my controller doesn't connect when I turn my ps3 on and I have to wait 5 minutes for the ps3 to load up when I turn it on.

So I've decided to finally format my ps3. I've now lost all my photos (some were special to me), music and tons of my favourite videos. Cheers.

Formatting my ps3 does seem to have fixed all the faults though. I just thought I'd share this while I have a few hours to kill as my ps3 has to redownload and install everything off the psn store

I really appreciate being part of the closed beta, i loved the game and hope ive contributed enough in this forum. But I frickin hope that the public beta does not crash every single time I play it, because there are going to be more people playing the public beta, and if my experience happens to a lot of other people, then there are going to be a lot of ****ed off people. The amount of times and the severity of the starhawk crashes were completely unacceptable. I now have had to format my ps3 and spend a whole frickin evening redownloading everything. Yeah it's a beta eh eh eh, that's the only reason I understand why this has happened but I am fuming.

You may want to post this on the US forums since I don't think the developers check this forum and this is certainly unfortunate. There is also probably more people there so you can see if this has happened to any others and the developers can contact you if it has, hopefully witht regards to a fix (if possible) or any other errors that occured for the PS3 at the time.

I've posted this in the us forums now. You're right I don't think the developers check the European forums. The silence from them is deafening. And it's a crying shame because there are people here who have suggested fantastic ideas that I guess won't be seen if they don't look here. The upgradable buildings idea is utter genius but I'm sure won't be included, or even read. What's the point of this forum

The corruption check is not mandatory.

 

Hit "O" to skip it and just play.

 

Perhaps doing that too many times wore out you HDD?

 

Get a USB stick formatted in Fat32.

Transfer all data you wanna keep from the PS3 to it.

 

Reformat HDD, wiping everything off it.

Start over.

I actually did skip the corruption check once and I'll never do it again because it not only fully corrupted starhawk, it totally crashed my ps3 when I chose to play starhawk, the screen stayed black and I couldn't even turn my ps3 off from the front. It did the 3 beeps and it still would not turn off. So I had to turn it off from the switch on the back of the machine. That is what I call a severe crash, and from my experience I'd suggest running the corruption check.

But eveyones experiences are different. I've just had the worst of everything i guess

And btw, that ^^^ all happened after it wrecked my ps3. That crash above wasn't the cause of it

This scares me. My system has froze at least 7 times today playing Starhawk. This did not happen in the private beta. Each time I had to turn the system off manually and then wait for files to be rebuilt. So far no error codes. Sony charges $190.29 to repair a system. I know. And you don't get the same system back. Think I'm going to stop playing until I see an update.
