Whenever I turn my PS3 on it says “the file system on the system storage is corrupted and will be restoed”. I then press OK which is the only thing I can press. It then has a loading screen with “restoring. do not turn off the system.” (I can’t turn it off via the button anyway because when I do it makes a triple beep). It then stops at 51% and goes to a black screen, and again I can not turn my PS3 off via the button, but it doesn’t beep this time. So again I have to switch off my PS3 via the mains and then the process is repeated. When I took out the two leads on the right hand side of the box of the PS3 and put them back in again, it got to 100% but again went to a black screen.
I’ll be glad to give you more info.
P.S I tried to go into safe mode before but when I try to restore it, it takes so long that I don’t think it’s working.
P.S.S Is the optical meant to be red when the PS3 is turned on? (You probably guess I don’t know too much about PS3’s, sorry).
