SOURCE: won't play PS3 games

I have a 60GB unit and it wont read any BD discs or games. I left my system on for about 1/2 hour and then it started to read the games. Ive done this twice now and it seems to work.

SOURCE: ps3 system update data corrupted

Hook up the external to your USB port and copy everything over. I had to do that when I installed a larger hard drive in my PS3

SOURCE: my ps3 wont read game discs

This is now happening to every body. I was playing COD4 when i got the same problem.

You could try to open the hard drive post on the left of the ps3 and blow into it. Not Guaranteed
You can also open the ps3 and clean the laser. If you chose to do this the warranty on the ps3 will automatically expire ( AFTER BREAKING THE SEAL) . Therefore you wont be able to return it for service. This method seems to be the best.

You can call Sony for a repair which will cost you approx 150$

1. Create a folder on the storage media in which to save the update data.
Using a PC, create a folder named "PS3" on the storage media or USB device. Within the PS3 folder, create a folder named "UPDATE".
2. Download the update data and save it in the UPDATE folder created in step 1.
3. Pop this into your ps3 and choose to update via that.

Just got wireless and my first system update for ps3 wont work,it keeps showing 80710723.kind regards jack

1st When you test your connection when it shows you NAT Type, make sure its Type 2 any other will have certain conflicts with PSN and online gaming. If its not Type 2 I recommend doing a factory reset on your modem/router.

2nd If you have the recources try hooking it up wired and see if you have the same problem.

3rd Try downloading the update via your PC to usb flash drive and then plugging the flash drive into one of the usb ports on your PS3.

Good Luck!

Tried to update my firmware .but is now stuck on updateing my firmware page.


If you are having trouble updating the fireware on your PS3 this could be sign that you have corrupted data on your PS3's hard drive. The link below will help you address this.

Note if you are able to get to the main menu you will want to back up your data before you try a format as this will erase all your data off the drive. The link below will help you do this.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

How can if possible make me ps3 support all video data? some files don´t work when i try to watch them it just say´s "the data type is not supported"

Other then updating the PS3's firmware, which you probably already tried..

All you can do is use a computer to convert the original video format.. To a video format the ps3 can recognize.

You will need a special software to do so, To find one, google video converter software and find a program you like!

Update system error

Go the the GAME section, GAME DATA, delete the game data for whatever game it is you were trying to install.

Shut down the PS3, then put the game back into the console.

Should work after that.
