What if the "Restore File System" Option ALWAYS returns "The Hard Disk's File System is Corrupt" even though this message does not appear when booting the PS3 normally?

 

Do I have to restore the PS3 System fully then? Because rebuilding the database didn't help.


 

Restore file system will always tell you that the hard disc file system is corrupt every time you select restore file system.  You said that rebuilding the database didn't help but what specific problem are you having with your ps3?

Well, actually, it gave a different message when I first did the restore file system. It had a slash in it rather than what I posted, like two things were wrong. But I was wondering it could've made my Valkyria Chronicles freeze a bit. Though, I no longer have the game to try it on, and I just restored my system, so I lost all the save data. *Shrug* I'll buy Valkyria Chronicles again sometime, if I'm lucky.

Ah I see.  Well you should be fine now.  I don't suspect you'd need to restore the ps3 system unless you're still having freezing issues at this point.

That's a pretty strange situation.  As long as it's powering down after that second beep then I would just continue as normal.  After it shuts down, hold down the button again til you hear the quick double beep.

Re: How to access Playstation 3 SAFE MODE

Oct 24, 2009

I am currently stuck in a loop of failing update, the update kicks in the instant the system starts and then fails.

I tried safe mode but I can't even access it, the update kicks in. I followed the instruction for accessing safe mode, except my beeps are slightly different.

turn on, 1 beep, 1 beep, 2 beeps, 1 beep, shuts down

turn on, 1 beep, 1 beep, 2 beeps, update screen

Am I doing something wrong? Ican't access the safe mode menu.
