Gamerevolver.comrecently ran into the the dreaded 80010514 error shortly afterinstalling a new game they had purchased off the PlayStation Store anddecided to document it. Here is what the have to say…
Since this error occurred, we obviously contacted SonySupport. We were informed that the code is not common, and a simplereset of the system, and restoral of factory settings should do thetrick. Unfortunately, after the restoral, the error still occurred.
The error code is actually one of two things, a) afaulty sector on the internal hard drive, or b) a faulty installationof software/firmware, both iterations actually coincide with eachother.If the hard drive suffers a faulty sector ( a section of damaged spaceon the drive that data may have been written to that no longer isreadable), an installation may still be processed, and even work, butthe error can cause some serious side effects, such as option b. Ifyour PS3 has installed an item incorrectly, including firmware, it isin high risk of receiving this error.
Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game discrecognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, thedrive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems.When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, willreceive the error.
1) Ensure that your internet connection is stable.If you are using a wireless connection, make sure your signal is atleast a solid 80%. If not, make the proper adjustments until it is.
2) Dust your machine regularly. Any PS3 owner willtell you that the Playstation 3 is a dust magnet. Just run a dry clothover it every couple days, and you should be fine. This will helpprevent heat issues and shorts that may occur.
3) When installing firmware and/or software, makesure you follow the instructions. Even if you have installed 6 versionsprior, each one is different, and may require additional steps. Saveyourself the headache and just follow them, it only takes a minute orso longer to do it right.
Lets sum it all up, the error is not hardware related and is causeddue to corruption of firmware. Restoring you PS3 will not roll back thefirmware, and unfortunately will not fix the issue 9 times out of 10. If you are receiving this error, contact Sony for a replacement unit. Again I hope none of my readers have to see the dreaded 80010514 error and by following Gamerevolver.com’s simple steps your bound to prolongue the life of your PS3 indefinitely.



If u have access to another hard drive, try replacing the ps3 one with this one, if not, back to Sony it is.

Bought new call of duty black ops and im getting an error code 80010514. this happens with my fallout new vegas as well but all my older games still load and play. whats wrong with my ps3 its a slimline...


This doesn't help much but I have the exact same problem and I KNOW it is not the disc. We have two PS3's. 1st one is a 120g and the 2nd is a 250g. We bought two disc, one for my husband and one for my son. Our 120g reads and plays both disc perfectly but when we put either one of the disc in our 250g we receive the 80010514 error. Neither disc will play in the 250g and both play perfectly in our 120g. We have tried everything Sony has told us all the way to the complete hard drive restore (the 14 hour one) Nothing will make it play. It recognizes the game and allows us to see backround game picture with option to start , get info, or internet search but when you start you get that error every single time. Like the guy above everyone of our other games and blu-ray disc work perfect. Playstation sent us our box to send in for repairs today so we will see what happens but from the research we have checked our guess is 1 of 2 things. Either there is some type of bug with the 250g not being able to run this specific game OR this could mean the blu-ray reader is about to go out but has not yet. I say this because I read something about Black Ops running faster and harder in the drive than other games because of some type of smooth texture graphics type thing. Not sure exactly what all that means but something about running the disc harder than other games. Kinda makes me think blu-ray is on the verge of going but who knows. So far I have only found others with the 250g having this problem. Luckily it's still under warranty so it's in Sony's hands now. Just hope they hurry and have some answers.

Error occured during loading operation 80010514


Hello jesus_its_sp
This error means that the PS3 is unable to read the disc.
Does this error occur with other games? Has this game worked before?
The first thing you should try is cleaning the disc. Do this using a clean, dry cloth. Start from the centre of the disc and clean outwards.
Check for scratches. If the disc is damaged, you´ll need to purchase another disc.
If the problem persists, you may have a hardware problem.
Hope this helps. Good luck

Not reading the games disc and when i put in a


This could be alnes problem or a system problem. Try to restore the PS3 first.

Turn off the ps3 then press and hold the powr button until it turns off again. Then do the same thing but this time it will make a beep, then it will make a double beep, and as soon as the ps3 makes a double beep release it. Its going to bring up a menu and make sure you press number 3 which is restoring file system. I would recommend going to this webpage which explains everything in better details http://www.ps3blog.co.za/2008/04/10/ps3-error-80010514-explained/

Ps3 error code 80010514 and wont read the disc


Hi, if your PS3 is reading DVD's and CD's, but NOT any type of BLUE-RAY media.....95% sure it's a faulty laser. The Backwards compatible units are equipped with a RED laser for DVD and CD reading. The Blue Ray Diodes are faulty..especially in the earlier production models. This was due to the shortage of parts during production, so SONY out sourced from multiple producers of BR laser units.

My 80gb , 4 usb, Backwards combatibility unit started doing this. The game froze, system became unresponsive, wouldn't show the the Disc ICON in the XMB for PS3 games. When the games did load they would play for a few mins then freeze, or error code 80010514 would appear.

I got the laser replaced by a reputable repairman, now the system works without fault. It's been running for hours with no problems.

Get the lens replaced by either SONY or someone who knows what they are doing....also give your PS3 a good dusting everyday. When the Laser unit gets too hot the diodes malfunction and eventually fail.

Take care

My ps3 refuse sometime to load my ps3 discs.


I have the same problem, it's error 80010514.  An error occurred during start up operation.  That's what you would see on your screen if the disc would even get read.  Your ps3 is screwed.  Call 1-800-345-sony and talk to them.  They will tell you that you need to send it in and if your 1 year warranty is up you have to pay $150.  I'm waiting for them to send the coffin to send my ps3 back in

Motorstorm 80010514 erro


your error means this according to what I could find out : 80010514 - Disc error detected. Retrying operation. Do your other games work. If so, then you may have a bad game disc. Or it may be scratched or dirty. If your other discs work, then I would try this game on someone elses unit, or check it for dirt/fingerprints. If that doesnt work, you could try a cd lens cleaner disc..it may help.
