    I am having the same problem.

    I played LBP for a couple days, but now my system will not recognize any discs.

    Mine won't even recognize LBP or now anything else.

  • benjaminrich Oct 31, 2008

    I too bought LBP, did the updates. I got to play about 1/2 of the 1st level and now it will not load any games. I sprayed some air into the disc drive and it loaded one of my games but it froze again after a couple minutes. This can't be just a coincidence. My warranty ran out, a couple weeks ago and they want $150.00. There has to be a fix for this but if not Sony should be replacing it for free. I take great care of all of my equipment and this has never happened before. I saw you could buy a lens replacement. Where can you get those?

The same thing happened to me. Played LBP for about 20 mins, the game froze and now it will not load any discs properly. It will show the game but then shows an error. I tried spraying air into it which loaded LBP for another 20 mins but then did the same thing. Of course my warranty ran out about two weeks ago. This is ********. I am not paying $150 for something SONY should pay for. I take great care of all of my equipment and own all of the new game systems and a ton of pro audio gear. None of my other equipment has ever done this only 8 months after owning it. Hell my PS2 lasted all the way up till a month ago and I just need to fix something minor on it. Is this just a coincidence that is happening after loading LBP?

Cant update system so i can play blue rays


You can update your ps3 without going online on the ps3. Go to http://us.playstation.com/support/systemupdates/ps3/index.htm on your computer and download the newest update. Download it to a flash drive. Insert this into the USB port of your ps3. save it to your hard drive, and then update your system from the XBM. Also, newer games (little big planet 2) have the firmware on them so if you buy/rent them, you can install from the disc.

Ps3 3.01 update broke my disc drive


I had the same problem: Blue-Ray games/movies, normal dvds would not play after some time I did the 3.01 upgrade. To work around the problem I went into System Settings and did a system restore - quick format and viola everything was fine. Unfortunately I was not able to run the backup utility to save my game data - (kids not too happy about losing countless hours on Little Big Planet). So hopefully this helps someone - Funny thing is after the restore the version of software was still 3.01 (I thought it would do factory reset). So something got hosed somewhere in the settings or just general HD corruption.

Hello,
You need to sign up for the Playstation Network. Its free and you can sign up on your PS3 or on the computer. I will provide you links on how to do both.

Tutorial-Sign up on PS3

Link for Signing Up on Computer

Also, check and make sure you have the latest Firmware Update for your PS3, you can check that by going to the Settings Tab on the XMD main screen and go up to the "Check for Updates".

Thank you and have a wonderful day!
