Ok. This problem is usually a result of the console overheating. What you can do is check a few things before making any decisions. Firstly listen to hear if the games are spinning when in the system. If it is not try unplugging the unit and connections including power supply for 10 minutes and reinstall.

If this still doesnt work the motor is damaged or broken due to the overheat. You will have to have it repaired by Sony. Do not attempt to repair it yourself or you would void any warranty if you have any.

If you have a warranty Sony will repair it for free or send you a voucher to purchase a new one free to you.

If you have to purchase a new ps3 i recommend buying a cooling system or fan to keep near the ps3 to avoid overheating. Also keep the ps3 in an area that has good ventalation.

The number for sony is listed in your owners manual and also on the back of the ps3 video games.

I hope I was able to fixya problems and Happy Gaming.

Ps3 wont play nba 2k10 all of a sudden why but


Turn on your ps3. In the main menu of the ps3 go to "Game Data Utilities". Delete the Nba 2k10 file. It should start playing again and you saved files should still be there.

PS3 WON'T PLAY BLU-RAY DISCS


The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:

Settings:

Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!

My ps3 wont play ps2 games. it worked then i left and came back and it didnt work anymore. ps3 games still play but not ps2.


It sounds like the dvd lens has packed up, but not the blu ray lens. Are the ps2 games your trying to load all clean? Do DVD's work? If not it sounds like your lens. So phone sony its a job for them, if you from the uk, and ps3 is under 1 year old it'll be free of charge, other countries are different.
