Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
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
