A link I came across that divulge many of the answers regarding the PS3 console and it’s various models over a variety of topics. Including how to access a lesser known “recovery console” and a list of all the known error codes. My apologies if this has been posted in some incarnation somewhere else previously. Just thought this may help someone after going through a few issues myself recently with my own console.
Advanced Recovery Console:
have the system off, press and hold the power button until it turns off again
press and hold power until you hear two rapid beeps.
plug in the controller, press the ps button, go down to option 3 (rebuild database),
you should reboot and it will tell you the file system is corrupt and will be rebuilt.
what this does is re-install the firmware on the system, which should fix any glitches
that occured during the first installation.
