I'm trying to clean my PS3, but I read that vacuums can be 50/50.


Any ideas/videos I can watch.

Also, is there a way to delete your demos/old games from your PS3 to create hard drive space?

I know that lol.
What I meant was can you delete demos off of your download list to create more hard drive space?

Are these demos actually stored on your console or are they just on a list queued for download at a later time?

If it's the former, then you can access them in the games folder or the game data folder. If it's the latter then I would think that they're not actually taking up any space as they haven't been downloaded to begin with.

You could also delete install data from games you no longer play or have if you need disk space.

It's where you have to go to your account then viewing the games/demos from the PSN store to download them.

Would I still keep it even deleting it? Could I put it on a USB?

Tsk tsk never use a vacuum!! Use compressed air which you can get at a local Electronics store and for the memory just back up the save files and delete them along with the install data because every time you put a game in it will update and install on it own.

What to do:
1.) Turn off PS3 so the red light is on.

2.) Hold and keep holding the power button. The console will turn on, and eventually turn off again.

3.) Once off, with the red light on again, press and hold the power button. You will hear one beep, another single beep after that, and then two beeps in a row. After the two beeps, let go of the power button so it doesn't turn off again and you'll end up in the system recovery menu.

From here there are a few options What it sounds like is that you want the ps3 to be like it was when you got it fresh "out of box" so Choose restore.
