Hi
Return under warranty.
the blue ray laser will have been slightly overheated and as a result will need to be replaced.

    This is a solution I found in one of the blogs, it worked fine for me:
    1. Connect the ps3 to the Wiimote and press Home to see the menu options. 
    2. Press A + 2 + Z together which should result in a short ?ping-like? sound.
    3. You have now activated the interlaced mode. 
    4. Leave the menu and you should see the normal game screen. 
    5. To switch back to regular mode use the same method above and press A + 1 + Z. 

    I hope it will work for you!

    Good luck!!!

If it's not registering any disks then it's the blu ray drive thats probably died. Happened to mine on Thursday while playing Fifa 09, rang the number above and Sony are sending me a replacement one tomorrow. Can't fault the service.

Hope you get your sorted. If it has died, you will need to back up your HDD with a memory stick or something. At least make sure your game saves are backed up, the rest you can re download if need be. Sony should deliver a replacement within a couple of days and collect your old one at the same time. Just restore you new PS3 with the data from your memory stick... Thnx.

  1. You have to hold the front power button for about a minute.
  2. hiya, I did the exact same thing, but with a little common sense i finally figured how to get my screen to load again. this is what i did.I went back and plugged in my HDMI cable to the tv it was connected to with the rca cables as well. The HDMI connector should load the screen with its default setting. Go to the settings-display setting-video output setting.change it back to AV MULTI/SCART and just follow the messages. A message will pop up and tell you if the screen goes blank it will reset to its original setting (HDMI setting). Your screen will go blank, in the mean time, change ur television back to either video 1 or video 2, wherever you have ur regular RCA hooked up...you should be able to see the menue. Hit save setting..now ur PS3 should be able to load through the regular RCA cables...hope this help...

Try first to unplug the ps3 from the power outlet for 30 minutes to let it refresh itself then after that check if everything is already working, if still not working a software update will be helpful for this problem,,,

    The easiest method is to download the update right on your PlayStation 3. In the Settings menu, right at the top, is System Update. Select this and when asked tell it to Update Via Internet

Unplug the ps3 for 10 minutes and try again, you can hold down the power button when powering up the ps3 to restore it to default video settings.
If these two things have no effect I would suggest you contact the dealer and get the ps3 replaced with another one.

Looking for game instructions for lego batman the video game for nintendo DS


I couldn't locate any online pdf files for the actual manual that would come for a game, but I've compiled some information on how you can start the game and which buttons do what from various sources.
Basic controls
http://www.gamefly.com/game/nintendo-ds/LEGO-Batman/130155/GameplayControls/

Walkthrough
http://www.gamefaqs.com/ds/943953-lego-batman-the-videogame/faqs/55512

These two links provide a lot of information about how to play the game and the mechanics of the game. The walkthrough helps on both and is very detailed.

Cheers!

While playing the game, it will suddenly make a loud sound the freeze up. What can i do to do fix this?


I have the exact same problem when I play Lego Batman on my Wii. Unfortunately, since the Wii version is the same as the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, it has lots of data that the Wii console can't handle sometimes, thus making that loud noise and freezing up. You can't fix it, but the best solution would be to:
1) Unplug the Wii, then plug it back in.
2) Start up the game and try that same part again. It should work. If it doesn't, just keep trying.
*Note: When you plug it back in and start the game again, don't do any other levels before the level that keeps freezing up and making that loud noise. I hope this helps.

Saved data on Batman is saying its corrupt


you probly upgraded firmware to 3.0 this broke alot of games if you havent already started a new game( this will erase the old saves ) do a system update even if it didnt tell you to, to see if update 3.01 is available. If your already at 3.01 then you may need to start all over or just google ps3 game saves and find one that is about the same level as yours although most are either 50% or 100% complete

My ps3 just stopped playing video discs and blu ray discs today. help!


Goto settings at the main menu of the ps3, go to the left to settings, then go down to BD/dvd settings go down to BD 1080p 24hz output and disable it.If this doesnt work out for you call up Sony, theyll get you set up with the repair process. before you call them though, be sure to restore system to default settings, because they will ask if youve done that yet.Their number is 800-345-7669 (800-345-SONY)
Sometimes if you get a blu ray disc outside of your region, then it's not supposed to work. If you live in the US, then only Blu Ray movies from the US will work.
