Push the disc in further. If that doesnt work, replace the optical laser ontop of the blu-ray drive. If that doesnt work, your blu-ray drive may need to be reset on the gears correctly.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

How can u fix error 80010516?


To solve this error :

Never eject disc while game is in use.
Delete all your messages.
If playing a game on disc, clean the disc off and ensure disc is inserted properly.
Upgrade your firmware to the latest version.
Under Game settings, set PS/PS2 Upscaler to Off.
Restart your Playstation 3 and try again.
If all else fails, the disc might be defective.

My playstation powers up normally. It runs normally but will not read any games. When I insert the disk I hear no noise like the disk isn't even spinning. Is this the laser or something else?


the playstation 3 tends to have quieter disc spins have you tried taking all the cords out of the back and putting them back in (sometimes it seems even with power cord out will draw some power from TV so ALL cords) and check using multiple games

The following website sells the drives and does installs:
store.richspsxparts.com

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your PlayStation including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your PlayStation going again!

Hope this will help...

Ps3 does not read any kind of disc inserted, even a cleaning disc. Can I do anything?


This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. If the cleaning disc did not help, then the try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Check with Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty with this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_c921F5935-E460-55B7-A328-5BEA7D5C49AE_kDAFA2718-297A-1EA2-6192-44C4B1E6348C
