    [Answered] ps3 icons keep spinning help?

    i'Ve gotten the PS3 BREAK V1.2 and have played some games. Today when I turned the system on everything started as normal... I chose the profile to use and when I got to the main screen the SUB-ICONS just kept spinning. I rebooted the machine... same problem. I unplugged the video cable and reinserted it (after unplugging the power cord)... still same problem. I try to format the hard drive after about 20 minutes the system still is on 0%.

    Thanks for your help.

    It sounds like a problem I had when I tried to play a game discless, that needed a disc, then tried to quit the game.

    You need to access the recovery menu, you can find out how to do that here: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-he...lp-116534.html

    Once there select rebuild database and after that is done select restore system.

    I hope this fixes your problem but if not post a reply
