The solution i came up with is to contact Sony. I think that with the early run models of the ps3 consoles they have a disc reading problem. Go to www.usplaystation.com fill out a online service form be sure to have your proof of purchase as Sony will apply a charge of $140 dollars plus shipping and handling. If you do have proof than it all free of charge the only thing that i'm not sure of is the wait time. They say 7-10 working days but i'll bet it take longer. i true ly hope this will help, I know how it feels to have one of your prized passion taken away from you I feel your pain bro.

PLAYSTATION3 80 GB has lights flashing:green,yellow,green then flashing red.had a dvd disk that would not eject.i took it apart and removed disk.the dvd had some damage in one spot.playstation will no


Hi there James
it seems to me like you have the yellow light of death, but don't worry this is something that can be fixed.
You have two options here
Option1 you can send the console to SONY for $150, they will send you a refurbished model oh and all data may be lost. The whole process usually takes about 4-6 weeks.
Option 2You can fix the problem at home with a PS3 repair guide worth only $40 a 3rd of the cost of sony, the ps3 will be fixed within the next hour or 2.
Hope this helps

Playstation3 won't play games but will play dvds


that is an internal problem that will most likely have to be fixed by an expert, it has to do with you disc drive, which isn't usually a major fix, so it shouldn't cost you much.

The playstation 3 plays dvd's but not games it does not load them up at all.


1 Discs that are not compatible with the system cannot be played. 2 Games that can be played on this system have to be on PLAYSTATION3 format software. Playstations format software canbe played but may not perform correctly. Please check if the games you wish to play are on this format. 3 Please check if the data for PS3 format software is saved on the system's hard disk. The data is displayed under Game - Saved data utility

Why can play my game on playstation3 from playstation 2 what do i need


The only PS3's that have backwards compatiblity were the first 60GB models, and some 80GB's that are no longer in production. You can still find them on Ebay and Amazon.

The 60GB actually has the ps2 hardware in it allowing for 98% BC, however the 80GB that is no longer in production used software to emulate ps2 playback.

This has cuase alot of people to be dissapointed with sony, however, in 2 or so years most people won't want to play ps2 games anyways, so it really doesn't matter.
