Hi, I got my ps3 about 2 weeks and it worked fine until last night. It's not recognizing and loading any sort of cd I'm putting in, whether it be a game or dvd.I think my kid may have changed some settings but don't know what.

A PS3 dose not have settings affecting the performance. Your PS3 should still be under warrenty, so if it dosn't work, just take it back and get a new one. If you want and your willing to take the risk, you can.
Take the system apart and wipe off the lense that scans the cds, or you could just if the system can't read any disks, then connect it to the internet and look for the latest updates, and you could do this by going into the "System Update" program.

My PS3 isn't reading discs!


If it isn't even trying to spin up, than it is probably a failed drive motor, or a driver issue. If it is connected to the net, try to install the latest drivers for the disc drive. If you aren't, or that doesn't fix it, you need to take it in.

Yes, the PS3 can play PS2 games.

Tekken not loading on my psp


I have seen thousands of thread simply saying "My game will not run" without any details, guys, at least you should give error code, and what sort of firmware are you running with.

Ps2 trouble loading


Hi DanDancooke,

I believe your PS2 is extremely dirty and full of dust and lint. It needs to be opened up and cleaned out throughly.

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the CD tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to a Repair shop. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. then choose "Video Game Consoles". Then you pick a Good Repair shop. My shop is listed, but I cannot divulge the name in this forum. Cost will be $25 plus shipping. Shipping is usually $8.95 to the USA
