Hi plz help my ps3 is the 40 gb version

it gives me a blank screen the after some minutes it gives the canot start error.so i tried to do step 2 but instead of give a third beep then shuts off i gives a duble beep like the third step.

PLZ HELP

Step 3:

  1. Touch and hold the Power button, you will hear the first beep, again for the PLAYSTATION 3 to power on.
  2. Continue to hold the Power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep for video reset.
  3. Continue to hold the Power button and after about another 5 seconds you will hear a quick double beep.  At that point release the Power button.

Ok I tried this above time and time again. IMy son tried to do a update on his PS3 today because the controllers were not connecting via wireless. INow the PS3 is getting a error because the update operation will not complete so I came to this point of trying to restore or installing the update via flash drive. I am holding down the the button as stated above but I never get the safemode menu it goes straight back to checking for updates after the connect the controler via USB then it tries to install again. Any help would be appreciated.

Give it a day. If it still doesn't move, then shut down the PS3 and try again. If it works, then you should make sure you take the time to backup your important data.

Well finally the restore file system was able to keep going, but after it has finished starts again, now have been 5 times that the system starts again with a message "The hard disk's file system is corrupted and will be restored"

 

Every time there are 3 zones where it get stucked for a while, 14%, 16% and 48%.

 

It is this normal? Must I try another option?
