Sony has a few fixes for this.

Visit PLAYSTATION 3 System Software Update to download and install the most recent version.

To check what version of the System Software is currently installed on your PLAYSTATION 3:

  1. From the XMB™ home menu, go to (Settings) > (System Settings) > [System Information].

    The system will display the System Software version number.
OR During certain troubleshooting situations, it may be necessary to restore all of the PLAYSTATION 3 system settings back to their original "default" configuration.

  1. From the XMB™ home menu, go to (Settings) >(System Settings) > [Restore Default Settings]. 

  2. Once you select [Restore Default Settings], you will see a list of settings that will be restored. Scroll through them and press the button to restore the settings. 

  3. After the operation is complete, you will see the initial setup screen that appeared the first time you turned on the PLAYSTATION 3. 
    You will need to go through the initial setup process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3.
IMPORTANT
The Restore Default Settings feature will erase any previously saved settings and restore all of the following settings to the default:
  • BD/DVD Settings
  • Music Settings
  • Chat Settings
  • System Settings
  • Date and Time Settings
  • Accessory Settings
  • Display Settings
  • Sound Settings
  • Security Settings
  • Network Settings
  • Internet Browser Settings
Also, do not confuse "Restore Default Settings" with the "Restore PS3 System" option (the next option down on the menu). The "Restore PS3 System" will not only restore the default settings, but it will alsodelete all hard disk content. (You will lose all saved content from your PS3 system's hard drive if you use "Restore PS3 System.)

OR

Power-Cycle All Network Equipment Power-cycle means to turn the networking devices OFF (i.e., unplug it from the power source), and then to turn it back ON after a set period of time. This will allow the network devices to refresh its settings.

Please power-cycle ALL of your network equipment, including any wireless access points, routers, Voice Over IP (VOIP) modems, and broadband modems for two (2) full minutes. After 2 minutes, you can turn on (or plug in) your equipment.

    else try tis>>  eject the disc and put it back in, and it still wouldnt read it means  turn it off for 10 minutes, turned it back on and thought it was ok, as it was now showing the cod4 game in the xmb.

    try to run the game, and it would not  try to run, u would get so far as even searching for a game and waiting to game start in the lobby, but it would just freeze, and then back to square 1 with it no even regester there is a disc inserted for a while.

    this error code (80010514) is indeed a hardware failure, to be more specific, the Blueray drive has failed and the system will not run like this.


    so anyone with this error code, it is NOT a firmware issue, it is for sure hardware failure, the blueray disc is gone and will need replacing.. so cal sony, they may  come to bring u  new..


    anyway, this s to  confirm that this code means your blueray drive is broke and no firmware can fix it.. so youll have to 

    ring sony and get a new ps3.

You need to clean the lens . Due to dirt it is not detecting your disc properly . Also update the firmware to latest one .
Hope this solves your problem .

For some reasom my ufc2010 all the suden wont play and gives me a error code of 80010514 can anybody help me


Hello Chadhughes20,

Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game disc recognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, the drive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems. When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, will receive the error.

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

Ps3 does not read anything blue ray?will play reg dvds?


80010514

"Sony has confirmed that 80010514 is in-fact a hardware failure - In particular the Blueray drive has failed and this system can not function like this"

In other words you PS3 is malfunctioning call Sony and arrange a replacement to be sent, Unfortunately there is no quick fix and any attempt to do so will void your warranty.

Give Sony a call they are very helpful

Hope this helped

PS3 is not reading discs


There is a common problem with the Blue-Ray players in the PS3. There is not anything that i know of that you can do other than have your PS3 worked on

**Warning** If you have the old 80 or 60 gig ps3 that you are able to play PS2 games on and you are trying to go through sony for repair they may just give you a new 80 gig ps3 in which you will not be able to play PS2 games on any more that feature has been taken away

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.
