Playing ps3 game and quit - tried to load another


It may need re-setting, try turning off the PS3 unit then turn it back on and keep holding the on button until it recycles at least once.

My ps3 turns on and all the lights come on, but the screen is balnk. i put in a ps3 game and the little cd icon on the top right hand corner comes up, but the rest of the screen is still blank..and nothing...


Your video settings could have possibly been reset and if you run something other than factory default you will need to reset it and try again. All you need to do is place your finger on the power button, but do not remove it and hold it until you get the second beep after about 5 seconds. It should boot up and hopefully work. Good luck.

PS3 stopped loading discs


Cleaning the laser on the PS3 rarely, if ever helps.

It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

Ps3 not reading cd/dvd/games/blurays


hi...
The inside of the disc player is probably dusty. Video game consoles are notorious for gathering dust. I've fixed dozens that way. Cleaning inside the drive

PS3 won't recognize media, i.e. DVDs, games


So your DashBoard doesn't even come up at all? What happens when you turn the PS3 on with the game inside of it? Try using a lens cleaner to see if it is perhaps your laser that is being blocked by dust or something. If nothing works you may need to reload the PS3 Operating System (OS).
