Hi Angieseveryt, I purchased my 60 Gig PS3 around 18 mths ago and after only 6 weeks of use it did exactly what yours seems to have done, it made a funny noise and the game dropped out and every time I put a game or movie in it just wouldn't recognise it was in there. I contacted Playstation support centre and they organised for me to send it to them to be replaced by a refurbished unit. I wasn't happy about having it replaced by a second hand modified unit, but they do not repair them here in Australia (or not at the time anyway). The PS3 was still under its 12mth warranty. I don't know how old yours is or how much it would cost if out of its warranty period but I would contact the Playstation support centre and push them because I'm not the only one to have the problem I believe it was a factory fault and their are many cases of this happening. I haven't had a problem with the new unit and the whole process of replacement was very quick and easy. I hope this was of some help. Let me know how you go. Chappo007

I'm afraid you have gotten the Yellow Light of Death ( YLOD ) you will need to have your PS3 repaired by a technician or you can Google YLOD and you will find a repair guide.

I am a ps3 player and i attempt to play assassins creed: brotherhood multiplayer, and it has the animus sign and won't load... ive watched the multiplayer intro and then waited for hours, please help


This is because the Playstation Network is currently undergoing maintenance due to a recent hacking of their network. We are all still waiting for the Network to be fully restored, until then you cannot play and PS3 games online.

Just hang in there!

On my ps3 It won't let me play online or watch


The Playstation Network is literally undergoing maintenance after being Hacked. The Servers are all down so no one can use the network for now. It is not an issue with your system so don't be worried.

Hope this helps.

My new homefront ps3 will play on my friends playstation but will not play on mine help


If it won't play online what you'll need to do is set a static ip in your router for your ps3 and then open ports TCP Ports: 80, 443, 5223, and 10070 - 10080
UDP Ports: 3478, 3479, 3658, and 10070
(you'll need to contact your router about that)

If it won't play AT ALL follow these steps ( http://us.playstation.com/support/answer/index.htm?a_id=1488 ) to get into safe mode and select option 3.

If NONE of your PS3 games work and NONE of your blu rays work, your blu ray drive is fried and you'll need to get it fixed. You can go to: us.playstation.com/getservice to get it fixed.

I cannot get Resistance 2 to load on my ps3, I have tried 2 copies and niether of them work. However they work on my sons which is in the same house.


It's likely that the Playstation models are different in the fact that versions were backwards compatible. Meaning that early PS3 models were able to play PS2 games.
BUT that was phased out and now all currently manufactured PS3 models do not play PS2 games.
More detailed info from a Yahoo answers post "The 80GB PS3 is not capable of playing PS2 games. There is one model (the one with the chrome trim) that can play a PS2 emulator, but never an actual disc. The only two made that can play PS2 games are the out of production 20GB and 60GB"
Alternatively, available in the PS store are PS2 games that have been remastered to play on PS3 through download and others like the God of War series and now ICO have been made available to purchase in disc form.
Hope this helps...

Try swapping games? When I first bought my PS3 I found that Uncharted Drake's Fortune froze often and had problems through the whole game, all other games worked fine. May just be a bad update or a problem with the game
