Basically my PS3 HDD has corrupted. When I start it up, an error message appears which tells you to restore your system. When it restores it, the PS3 restarts and the same error message comes up again. I done this several times, and still no result.
I've had my PS3 for 3 years and understand if the HDD is knackered. Over the years I have turned off my ps3 several times using the power button at the back and yesterday it was making clicking noises.
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
