Playstation 3 not updating games
It just wont boot up and when I go to the recovery screen it says HDD cannot be accessed, but I know it's good it works fine in the other PS3, what is going wrong? I did not want to wait for my husband to return from a 8 month deployment to fix it so I goggled and foudn this!You totally found the trick and I just wanted you to know you saved us big times!!!!!! Thanks a million, Jenny All I did was take the game out turn the ps3 off and took out the hard drive then I turn the ps3 on with out the hard drive and it could not locate it then I held the power button down for 10 seconds the I reinserted the hard drive and turn the ps3 bak on and IT WORKED!!!!!Step 2 - Touch and hold the power button, you will hear the first beep, meaning the playstation 3 is powering on.Continue to hold the power button and after about 5 seconds, you will hear a second beep, indicating the video reset.I thought ok ill do that later and turned it off properly.when I went back and turned it on it has came up with the wavy lines again so I tried holding in the power button for the 2 beeps but it beeped 3 times and wont let me do anything, any suggestions?If your BRD isn't working blow it out using a duster with a probe attachment.If it doesn't work, especially after an update, this is a common problem.
Restore Default Settings Restore File System Rebuild Data Base Restore PS3 System but in rebuild data base, it says hard disk cannot be accessed... I am having this problem also, have you found the solution yet?
I reformatted my HDD in a working PS3 and when I put it back in the broken one it wants to update it with the latest firmware, it is on the HDD.
I also have it updated on a usb stick and it doesn't seem to find it. My son has been playing our PS3 and one day the video just would not come up but we had sound.
When I clicked the game it froze on a black screen.
So I followed Chants Cookie Monsters instructions, it did the default systems didn't work, then did the file systems, and now it is good.
