While playing COD4 the game froze on me and then the screen went black. won't recognize any games but will still play movies and access the browser. when i finally got it to read a disk it gave me an error...


I'd try, firmware update and a system restore, but if that doesn't work it's probably:

A Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

Wont play games


ok as you know the ps3 uses blu laser technology but they still use a red laser as well ps2 dvd cd psone all use red and you know which use the blu so problem with that means that your blu laser went out. you can fix this yourself its real simple takes about 10 min and $80 or pay sony $200 message back if you want to know how

Whats wrong


does this only happen with CoD4? If so you may have a faulty disk. Goto your local blockbuster and rent CoD4 and see if it does the same thing. If it does, you need to RMA your ps3 877-253-SONY and request a RMA.

If it doesn't you got a bad game disk.

Discs not reading/loading


we just took our ps3 apart and tinkered with the parts and cleaned out the dust and it started working again!!!! and it only took three hours.....i suggest buying an intercooler and watch getting any liquids (especially cleaning products) within 50 feet of a playstation.
