Hey all, my first post in the PS3 section and I don't think you can really help me as people seem to think it has to be sent off, but its worth a shot.
The PS3 won't boot. Says the filesystem is corrupt. Pressing PS button does nothing. Absolutely zilch. Pressing X causes about a 30 second wait time before the Restoring message vanishes and the console reboots to the same error.
Anyone know a solution, other than send it to Sony? Sony apparently seem happy to exchange the HDDs but if it could be solved without sending it, it would be better.
