Will not play any ps3 games or movies


Hi,

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

From the above select option "Rebuild Database". After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu.


Thank you

Console does not play movies or games. I put a


I just had the same problem and managed to fix it.

Plug your controller into the PS3 via USB cable.

Put the PS3 into standby and then keep your finger on the power, every time it switches off hit the power button but keep your finger on it until you see the restore options come up

Press ok to any other screens

Select Restore file system

Press ok to any other screens

Power machine back up and all should be well.

All my games where still there and my settings so happy days. It now plays PS2 games as well, which it used to do but had stopped working a while back.

My PS3 wont play any movies but still plays video games???


Ok so its 60GB its definatly alright to play movies and all sorts, but if you are that desperate to watch movies then you may want to reset to factory settings just access settings and look for reset console, then it would start from square 1 you have to make your accounts and earn your trophies again but if you want to watch movies desperatly then recommed you do that or go to game settings in the game column and have a poke in the folders because there might be a few things in there or go to the film column and check for setting sin there or go to the settings column and check for film settings in there its nothing to do with the updates thats for sure because ive done the same as you but havent played the game in a while but im still able to watch films

Dosent play movies or games has menu red an green blue lites work


Could you be a little more clear, it sounds like your menu works fine but the system refuses to read discs. If that is the case than you may need to get the system serviced.

Sadly there currently is no fix for this problem. I've also had this same problem and contacted Sony about it.

You need to send it in to them to get it serviced. You can do this at:

www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
uk.playstation.com/help-support/ps3

If your warrenty has expired it will cost around $180.

Ps3 won't play read my games


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.

PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....


Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

Discs wont read on ps3.


Question: does it play blueray movies? Mine did this, but would still play movies. I found a "Corrupted Data" file in my Games/data folder, and ended up doing a quick restore, under ths System menu. I now have no problems in this area...games start properly every time. You will lose all your saves and any dowloaded content, so back up if you can.
