Hi - can anyone help please? I switched on my PS3 this morning and the following error came up -
'Hard Disks File System is corrupted and will be restored' I then press X and the restore begins but once it reaches 100% it goes back to the same error.....Help!!
What PS3 do you have??? the old phat or the new slim??? How have you been turning it off??? correct way by selecting turn off on the xmb or the switch on the back (phat) or at the wall??
If its the new slim how long have you had it?? if under a year I would call sony and get them to sort it under warranty
Its the slim one. I got it in December last year. I turn it off at the wall. Didnt really want to send it back to Sony, as I heard it can take weeks to get it back.... :-( Thanks for your reply
it sounds like you corrupted the HDD by not switching off correctly - the same kind of thing as a PC.
As you only had it in december I would say phone Sony and speak to them as it is still under warranty, the downside to this is you will lose your game saves. All DLC you can get again through your download list on the xmb
The Phone Numer for Playstation Customer Service is 0844 7360595 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 0844 7360595
Thanks for the advice. I tried going into safe mode but couldnt manage it. Rang Sony Helpline (thanks for the number) they tried the same thing, then just replaced the unit. Have to say, their customer service is fantastic! Rang one evening, courier arrived the next morning with a replacement! Fingers crossed this one will be ok. Thanks again
