    Hi there Hells Pastry, this option would it disable all pop ups like (invites to games, when friends come online, when I receive new messages.) Or just the annoying ones I get from the previous post. Thanks

You have the option to disable those pop up messages in your profile. I can't give you exact direction right now, but later today when I get to my 360 I can find out for you.

I bumped my 40 gb PS3 the other day kinda hard, it wasn't dropped. Now, I turn it on and it works like usual,and I have a menu screen and I have the hand-spinning clock in the upper right corner. But...

First try a different disc if you haven't already, but it sounds like you may have knocked the laser out of alignment. On older playstations and other cd or dvd driven system the laser was much less sensitive then it is on the playstation 3 since it has a bluray laser. If you system is still within warranty i would suggest contacting sony to get it repaired, or take it back to the store you bought it from. If not under warranty then i would look into replacing the bluray drive. Often these parts can be purchased on ebay or various other sites.

Hi, My ps3 will read every single game except Fifa 11. when i load the game it stays on a black screen between 10-15 secs and then a message pops up saying, " an error occured during the start...

It's most likely the disc. I would say it's time to replace with disc with another one.
If you'd like to attempt to clean the disc before replacing it, clean it with an anti-static cloth and see if that helps.

My ps3 wont read video game disks, but it will read cd's and dvds. It also wont read blue ray. an error message comes up when i pop in a video game (80010514) I have already contacted sony but they want me...

Hi, this is a very common problem with the PS3 and usually means the blu ray laser has become faulty. You could try using a lens cleaner disc and see if that helps. Or you can have a look on ebay for a replacement drive. They usually sell for around £50 and are very easy to replace. If you google PS3 blu ray replacement you will find youtube guides on how to do it. You must however make sure you know the model of your PS3. It is on a white label on the back of the console and it starts CECH---. Next if you do replace the drive you will need to keep the circuit board that is screwed onto your drive as this is paired to the motherboard. If you do not swap the circuit boards the drive will never work. Have a look on youtube, the guides are pretty easy to follow.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My ps3 wont read dicks. no error messages pop up. i put a disk in and nothing happens

sry to give you the bad new but you blue-ray drive has gone to a better place. you can try to reset you operating system but 90% of the time the drive is bad. Sony does an exchange program for $150.00 you can send in your PS3 and get another referbished one back. if you do make sure to get all your data off your hard drive before you do as you wont get the same PS3 back

KEEP SAYING UNPLAYABLE DISC My xbox 360 keeps reading unplayable discs but if i sit there long enough and keep turning it on and off, it will work. But after doing it for half an hour it gets really...

Sounds like the laser is starting to go bad in your dvd drive if it has to read it a few times before it might see the discs.

The laser is inside of the dvd drive and it looks like this:

Depending on the manufacturer of the drive will depend on the laser you will need to get.

You could also take a can of air in the meantime and blow some into the drive to make sure that there is no dust or dirt on the laser as this could cause that message as well.

My PS 3 is having a hard time reading discs. Sometimes it will read them other times it wont or sometimes in the middle of a game i will get a blank screen

Chances are, your disc drive stopped working. No big deal. Just call up sony (the number can be found in the back of basically any game's instrustion manual. You can also find it by pushing SELECT in the playstation store) and get it repaired. Mine only took about a week.

This is a common error unfortuately with PS3. Hopefully your system is under warranty and can be replaced for free.

Good luck to you and Happy Gaming!
