It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

Ps3 wont play nba 2k10 all of a sudden why but


Turn on your ps3. In the main menu of the ps3 go to "Game Data Utilities". Delete the Nba 2k10 file. It should start playing again and you saved files should still be there.

That is because you like many people received a faulty blu-ray laser . Call Sony support ASAP and they will repair or replace it for free if it is under warranty. If it is out of warranty, there may be a local tech that can repair it. Don't get scammed though. Make sure they have their own repair shop and/or a great reputation before you let them work on it.
Thank you!

If it's a setting on the PS3 then just hook it up to another T.V. set it back to default and hook it back up to your other T.V.

Powering off mid game


i have same problem. i have looked online and it seems that the unit is over heating. Turn off the unit from back then hold the eject button while turning it back on from back and the fan should kick in and spin really fast and loud this will blow out any dust in it. if that does not work this is just a crazy but take a fan and put it on high and aim it at the vents to see if that keeps it cool.
