I'd suggest downloading the LATEST firmware and installing via USB, and if that doesn't work, call Sony. There's not a lot you can do about it. unfortunately mate

Also, assuming that the firmware was the culprit, and it wasn't just a drive failing coincidentally. It does happen. hope this helps.

Welcome screen come up then nothing...............


Please try:
  • turning your PS3 SYSTEM ON BY HOLDING THE ON/OFF BUTTON and using the AV cables (red white and yellow, it will restore your audio and video settings).
  • changing your Hard Disk for another one (spec: SATA 2,5'' 5400rpm)
  • taking you Hard Disk off of the system and formatting it in a PC platform .
else, consider taking the system to a assistance center for possible hardware issues checking .

The cd wont go in the console i push it in and it wont take it wat do i do


Have you ever performed a force eject from the PS3 by holding down the eject button

If you have this can cause the tack to become unaligned and thus rejects the disk

If you are under warranty that's the way to go if not a repair shop

Or if you do know your way around a PS3 bluray drive then here's how I align my drive

    1. Drive teeth can get terribly misaligned because of worn gear teeth, you may find it easier to reassemble the drive in the loaded position.
    2. With your Blu-ray drive open, remove the platform that holds the rollers. The only one screw is circled in red. Be careful about touching the plastic bumpers circled in blue. Short instructions under "Tips", in case you do.
    3. Twist the white gear denoted with yellow clockwise until the the gear separates from the black platform on the left hand side of the drive. Practically every gear in this area moves every other gear, but the white one seems the easiest to twist. Keep twisting until the two catches circled in green are completely lowered.
    4. Realign the black platform and twist the white gear counterclockwise until the two catches are fully raised. These catches keep you from inserting a second disc. You should not have to twist the white gear fully counterclockwise and it is a good idea not to. Make sure the left black platform is not tight against anything - especially the stuff towards the bottom edge.
    5. Pull the rollers outwards as the pink arrows indicate and screw the roller platform back onto the drive. When this is done, your rollers should be slightly loose. Work with the rollers and the white gear until they were just tight enough to loosely hold a CD as though the drive were reading it.
    6. Insert a junk CD along the top half of the drive as though the drive were accepting it. Pay attention to how the junk CD locks into place as though you still cared about it.
    7. While holding the CD in its loaded position, pop the top half of the Blu-ray drive onto the bottom half. You can shake it lightly, but if it doesn't come together smoothly, something might be misaligned. Go back and tweak until it comes together with relative ease. Don't forget the white magnet.
    8. Screw everything (that you feel like) back together, boot up your PS3, and eject your junk CD. It should come out smoothly and be re-accepted smoothly.
    If this has been some use to you then a rating would be great

    Thanks

    Ps3 not reading any games


    Sounds like either you have a dirty lens on the laser or you may have a worse problem. Apparently it's still recognizing your drive hence the error screen, but first try to clean the lens with a disc cleaner (any electronics store will have one) and if not, you'll have to split the case and check out the board on the drive to see if it's toast and if the motor still spins. If that's good, you can buy laser read assemblies on Ebay to replace it with. Check the traces (electrical paths), resistors (which will usually be black if toast) and capacitors (will usually be bulged, leaking, or blown out if bad). Good luck.
