Are you able to access safe mode? If so, try starting it up in safe mode and choose option 3, info's in the link below (it's worth highlighting that there could be implications in choosing the wrong option).
It's usually a good idea to back up any saved data/media just in case something goes wrong, either onto a USB stick or external HDD, although I dunno if that'd be possible in this case
I have got exactly this problem and have done the rebuild option but the screen went completely blank and now the PS3 won't do anything!
When I try to start it up the orange light comes on and thats its, nothing else happens - any ideas please???
The message on screen was:
'The hard disks file system is corrupted and will be restored'
But every time I restore it and follow the system options as you set out it just goes round in circles and does exactly the same thing again, time after time.
Any advice greatly appreciated.
If rebuild database doesn't work, then try restore File System, then try it again.
Worst case scenario if nothing works then try restore PS3 system, though be aware that that'll format everything.
It did run the taks but does nothing now, seems to take foever to load up. Its 'trying' to load up but seems to be having trouble reading the HDD and there is no picture on the screen.
Even after a while when the green light comes on there is no picture.
