    Let me clarify a bit. I can not get any disks to go into the drive. I am not sure if there is a problem with the drive mechanism or if the gears are out of sync. I have not worked on a slot based ROM drive before. I have taken the drive apart a few time to see if I could fix the problem but not sure where to start.

My ps3 slim 160 gb will not show game disk in the menu and will now not open when i press the eject disk..was working well 1 hour ago please help asap:/


Does this problem occur with only one game disc? If so, there might be excessive scratching on this disc. If not, I am afraid your PS3 has a problem with the laser reading the discs. The laser can be replaced, tho. You shouldn't mess with it yourself, take it to a specialist.

My ps3 will not play no games or dvds


If you have warranty with your PS3 you can send it to Sony so they can fix it. If you don't have warranty anymore then they will charge you $150 (that's a 150 dollars or some people said it was more pending on the different problems) for the repair of your PS3. Either way it can take up to 6 weeks before they send your PS3 back. Also note they wipe your hard drive contents!
Speaking of which you might try just this: reformatting your PS3 hard drive!
But if that doesn't work and you're not ready to pay that amount I suggest you use a guide that let's you repair your PS3 by yourself without the need of opening it. Such a guide fixes stuff like Yellow/Red/Green Light of Death (is your PS3 having one of those lights?) as they call it and other common problems with PS3 consoles (error codes, black screen, disk errors, error codes).

Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console My PS3 hard disk is corrupted, It say to restore i put restore and nothing had been restored Bid


Corrupted hard disk? Lets see....

You could attempt to boot up the PS3 in safe mode and restore the file system (should delete any corrupted data). Describing how to start up your PS3 in safe mode would just be confusing, so instead here's a link to the official page on the PS3 Safe Mode feature.

Follow the instructions, and then I'd say try options 3 (Restore File System). If that doesn't work, try 4 or 5 (Rebuild Database or Restore PS3 System).

If that fails, you could just replace the hard drive. The PS3 uses standard 2.5inch SATA laptop/notebook hard drives (5400 or 7200 RPM). They can be found online at any computer parts website; for example, Tigerdirect.

If somehow the new hard drive doesn't fix it, or you don't feel like buying a new hard drive, you could send the PS3 back to Sony. If you're under warranty it's free; otherwise it's expensive (150$ I believe).

If you request the repair service, they send you a box, you put the PS3 in it and ship it back to them. A month or 2 later they send you a fixed/different PS3. Simple, but takes forever to get a working PS3 back which is why I suggest you try a new hard drive first.

Anyways, hope you get it working soon!

Took PS3 on plane as carry on, now I get a ?cannot find harddisk"


The X-Ray machine most likely wiped your hard drive. To check, take off the side door, take out the hard drive, put it back in and see if it recognizes it. If not, reformat the hard drive in your computer and return it to the PS3. If this still doesn't work, buy a new hard drive for the system. Any size 2.5" laptop hard drive will work.

Can not remove disc from ps3


your disk is probably jammed, or the mechanism is broken. take it partially apart until you can (safely) remove the disk, and when you try to use another disk, and it gets jammed, then you know the mechanism is most likely broken. If that is the case call Sony and see if you still have warranty on the unit if so, send it in. If not I suggest you should buy a broken or nonworking ps3 for a low price then strip the needed parts from it.

Try updating the firmware. If it doesn't work, then take it to a repair shop, there's nothing you can do.

My ps3 wont take the disk!!!! HELP ME!!!!!!


if you take the system apart, check the blu ray optical sensor. its the really small board on the top front of the BluRay player. if it is positioned wrong it wont accept disks correctly. its worth a shot, and a easy fix. if you dont want to try that , i would suggest sending it to sony or selling it.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.

Platstation 3 hard disk error


It should have formatted with your ps3, even if you formatted the HDD on your laptop it would have asked you the same thing, since the PS3 asks you that so it can install some folders for the pictures, games music etc.

your problem could be caused by faulty HDD installation, a faulty HDD or a broken ps3 that cant read HDDs anymore.

I would make sure the HDD is installed correctly, if that doesnt work I suggest buying a new HDD. If both of those dont work then you have a Ps3 that has a trouble reading HDDs
