Hi guys is there anyway to fix this.. Try holding the power button till 2 beeps when i get in still the same error.Try reformating the HDD using my pc and put it back same issue.Try using a ps3 slim on it the data is different so cannot boot up.
My PC are able to detect the hdd and i can still use the hdd on the pc.
1. With the system in standby mode. Press and hold the power button down until the system turns on and then off again. Release the power button.
2. After about 1 - 2 seconds press and hold the power button again, until you hear 2 consecutive beeps. Release the power button. During this step you will actually hear three beeps. There will be one single beep then a short delay followed by 2 consecutive beeps. Only release the power button after you hear the 2 consecutive beeps.
At this point the PS3 Recovery Menu will be shown on the screen.
Try to restore the HD or reflash your current firmware version.
hi, thanks for the reply. I try that for a lot of time but still unable to get to the system recovery. but i'm currently having hdd is correct instead of corrupted. try diff hdd still the same problem.
sorry it should be correct hdd not found.

What firmware are you on? As its likely that your ps3 is corrupt and unable to access the drive and the only way to fix this is send back, or jailbreak and re flash the same firmware.
This is a very old fault and has been fixed twice over the years with quick patches from Sony as and when it happens, but this time with yourself and many others including myself can only be fixed with a downgrade card, because you have to re flash without the drive fitted, then after it will format the drive again as normal.
I have fixed 3 this way and twice on the same unit. There may also be other ways. but this works every time. Unless your on 3.56 that is.
So don't waste your time with the drive its not that, get a E3 card reader.
