I have just bought a used PS3 and it still has all the person's before's data on it.

I want to wipe all this data off and just start over.

How can I do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi

If you go system settings and then theres an option which has full ps3 system restore or format...this usually takes 1-2 hours....and then its like new when you switch it back on..

But make sure its always plugged in when you formating!

Hope that helps

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.

2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.

3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).

4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
