    has this always happened since you had it or is it just starting now?

    if it has read the ps2 disks before with no problems but now it won't and you really want to play them it may be worth restoring the settings on your ps3 back to the factory defaults. The only problem here though is that you will probably lose any data that you have saved, because it will reformat. To bring the PS3 to factory settings, you need to use the reset to facorty deafults in the system settings menu, not the restore system under backup

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.

How do i turn on my ps3 rock candy wireless controller


After installing batteries in the controller and inserting the usb stick into your PS3, hold down the home button (the round middle most button with a house on it) for a few seconds until the light on the controller illuminates. This is your indicator your controller is paired with your PS3 and should be assignable and usable at this point.

Pogo wont load games


This should get you started on trouble shooting the issue.

https://help.ea.com/article/help-my-game-wont-load

This is a link to POGO support, read all the information and follow the instructions. Most the time this will fix issues with POGO.

I have had cases that Internet Exporer would not work no matter what we tried. In those cases I have downloaded and used Firefox (link for downloading below).
