    I have the same problem... constant loading icon in top right hand corner (I have 40Gb version), I suspect this is a design fault, judging by all the reports of this happening.

    Same problem here.. Sony says I must send in the unit for service BUT I must have the original receipt. If I can not locate the receipt I will have to pay $150 for the repair.  This sucks!!

    same thing with me too,i just bought it about two days ago
    and i tried putting in a game but it would not load. do you think i should wait a few days and see what happens.?

    I've had my Sony Playstation 3 for over a couple of months now, it's never broken down needed service or anything along those lines. It's a 40 GB Metal Gear Solid 4 Premium Pack, I was playing Fallout 3 yesterday & it worked perfectly fine. Earlier on I switched on the console, inserted the game CD & the Icon would not even show. I assumed it must have been the game, so I put in another CD, then another & another. It would still not work, no one has given us a proper understanding as to why the system would do this, I would really like some clarification, because this is pretty ******* random.
    Another thing, I live in the Middle East, we don't have the luxuries of having to send the console to the company with the original invoice or pay 150$, most consoles in the country are sold through free lance retailers, my warranty expired ages ago, then again this isn't your problem, my problem is why would this just happen when it ran perfectly fine for 7 months straight? I don't even overuse the damn console.

I have the same problem and after extensive research Ihave found thousands of people like us in this similar situation. Everyone is getting the same response; send in ps3, get charged $150.00 and receive a refurbished but working ps3. This is absolutely unacceptable. Everyone who experiences this issue, you need to contact the president and c.e.o office of Sony and politely but firmly explain your dis-satisfaction with Sony and feel that a product of this caliber and price should not fail, get into detail of how Sonys decision to charge you $150 for a refurbished model will have a tremendous impact on the purchase of future Sony products such as TVs, camcorders, etc. We need to take a stand. If one person ( me ) does this, they do not give a ****. But if thousands of us unite and call to the correct office, not the sony tech. service. but corporate headquarters, heads will spin and action will be taken. This is the only way to make something happen and we all need to do it. Here is the contact info.
Sony Corporation
1-7-1 Minato-Minami
Minato-ku
Tokyo, 108-0075
Japan - Map
Phone: 81 3 6748 2111
Fax: 81 3 5448 2244

Now yes, it is a long distance call to Japan, but we all have internet and are able to make free calls, so there are no excuses . Make the call and lets make something happen.

here is a list of the names of the executives you need to leave your complaint with. call all of them 1 time per day until they change their policy and do the right thing. I promise you, if we do this, we will see action.
sir Howard Stringer , 67
Exec. Chairman, Chief Exec. Officer, Member of Nominating Committee, Chairman of Sony Corp. of America and Chief Exec. Officer of Sony Corp. of America N/A N/A Mr. Ryoji Chubachi Ph.D., 61
Pres, Director, Member of Nominating Committee and Chief Exec. Officer of Electronics N/A N/A Mr. Nobuyuki Oneda , 64
Chief Financial Officer and Exec. VP N/A N/A Mr. Kiyoshi Shikano ,
Corp. Sr. VP, Sr. Gen. Mang. of Global Marketing Division and Member of the Board of Sony Marketing (Japan) Inc N/A N/A Mr. Jack Tretton ,
Chief Exec. Officer of Sony Computer Entertainment America and Pres of Sony Computer Entertainment America

when calling, ask to speak to these people and do not be afraid. just because they are CEO and CFO.. they are human just like you, they need to be told from the regular consumer that they are producing a defective product and then stiffing the comsumer with the financial responsibility of repairs. And you will not pay to have it repaired and you will purchase an XBOX 360 or NINTENDO Wii. and if they dont, then do it. BOYCOTT PLAYSTATION as i have until they oblige by my requests. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER SONY PRODUCT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE . BE FIRM AND STOP LETTING BIG CORPORATIONS TAKE ADVANTAGE!!
GOOD LUCK TO ALL .

Ps3 wont load games or movies ps3 froze during


This is usually caused by a bad laser. Try cleaning it first to see if that helps. If it doesn't then it will need to be replaced. Check out www.wiredextreme.com or call 214-222-5788. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty.

Games will not load,I have tried movies,and games,everything else seems to be working fine,just cant play movies or games..


Ok, if you are having problems with loading games/movies that are disc based and not ones that are in the HDD (Hard Drive) or on a usb drive (This means digital movies and games), chances are your PS3's Blue Ray drive is damaged and you will need to get a replacement. If you can't play anything even if it's Digital/HDD based or Disc based, you may have to send it in for repairs, or get a Replacement PS3.

It wont play games or movies


Laser has to be bad then if its not reading brand new games or dvds. To verify this though get a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there is no specs of dirt or dust on the laser.

Now try the games and dvds again and if its still happening then the laser needs to be replaced and you can get them fairly cheap off of Ebay.
