Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Ps3 problem My ps3 won't load any dvds when I click on the disk icon in the XMB it loads them but then the screen just goes black. I'm also having trouble with the ingame XMB. I can put a game in and it will read it, but when I press the ps button to get to the XMB It just keeps thinking and I have to shut my ps3 off. If I try to quit the game It will freez my system. I also tried it with a psn demo and does the same thing. Also I can't get into Folding home it just keeps loading. I tried unhooking my internet con and same thing happends.I can get online just fine and chat with friends, but would really like to know if other people are having the same issue, and if they know what it is or how to fix it before I give Sony mony to fix it.

    I already have the latest firmware update so that's not it, but thanks.

    I fixed my ps3 on my own. I reformatted it, and it worked!! Why didn't sony tell me to do that when I called them. They told me they new what was wrong with it. I think they screw people over just so they can make some extra cash. Money greedy sony.

Sounds like you need to update your firmware. The latest is 2.46.

You may want to wipe your hd before loading the firmware, it may help your situation.

My game BFBC2 won't load! Whenever i turn on my PS3 it works fine. When I put the game in the disk icon pops up. Normal. But when I click it my screen goes black. It's a brand new game too! I'm sick of it!...


I'm not and expert but this helped me, turn of the system and then there is a switch on the back. Turn that switch off and let it sit for about one minute. That should work.

My ps3 won't load the discs...


Hi, if it wont load your icons and freezes before your xmb, put it into safemode and try restoring the filing system. to get it into safemode...
hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.

once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.

after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)

Thanks and take

My ps3 won't load any discs. when i insert a disc the disc icon doesn't even show up on the xmb bar.


well honestly I think your going to either get a new PS3 or buy a new disk reader because usually if the system cant even read the disc then the disc reader is busted and its pretty useless without it. hope I helped you out
