Hi!

First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or your ps3, following that I would say you put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works. If it doesn't, get a USB memory stick and save all your important data. After that, reset your system settings.

You can do that by:

Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings

After that try it and if it doesn't work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system.

You can do that by:

Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.

It should be noted that all of your stuff will be deleted, so I hope you saved all of your game saves on that usb flash disk.

If it doesnt work then do the following:

call sony:

SCEA Consumer Services
1-800-345-SONY (7669)

Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST


Have fun!

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17


Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

My ps3 is freezing


Hey.

I might sound like a stupid solution, but if the PS3 is in a dusty area it sometimes freezes.. Try to vacume clean it.. Also, is your fan on and does it sound ok. It might freeze due to overheating. If it only freezes when you play games on a disc, it might be a problem with the laser reader, which could also be due to dust.

Hope some of it helped.

Regards

Wont play ps3 games


I had this problem and it really made me mad. I tried re formatting , reset settings and nothing. Then I tried using some air sprayer that people use on computer key board and I sprayed in where the disc goes and now it works perfectly. Perfectly!

Error 80028f17


Error 80028f17 is a boot error and there is nothing you can really do about it, the disk is corrupted or burned (illegal copy) of the game. If it is legit, go back to the store and ask for another copy as it doesn't work.
