Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

I can't get my new PS3 to play any games. What am I doing wrong?

Do I have to have my PS3 hooked up to the internet to use it? I put a brand new game in and it isn't recognizing it.

My game BFBC2 won't load! Whenever i turn on my PS3 it works fine. When I put the game in the disk icon pops up. Normal. But when I click it my screen goes black. It's a brand new game too! I'm sick of it!...


I'm not and expert but this helped me, turn of the system and then there is a switch on the back. Turn that switch off and let it sit for about one minute. That should work.

I am a gaming console repair technician and this sounds to me like there is a bug in the games code. You should inform the creators of the game (EA Sports) of this issue via their forum here:

Ps3 bought in 2006 will not play ps3 games It


May sounds like a silly answer, but, do you have your PS3 hooked up to the internet. If not, there are many updates for the system which you are missing and therefore the new games will not play because of missing system updates. Hope this helps you out.

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.

go to system settings and restore your ps3, when you do this it will delete everything but it will just start you fresh and brand new all over again.
