    i got madden 09. fresh out of the box and it froze. i was like "no way its brand new there cant be a scratch it went from the box to the ps3, did not touch a thing. tried all my other games did not work either. i think the update 2.53 is causing the problem. I have a correct answer though. I say all of us with problems need to sew them and take are money and go get 360. ive had a ps1 2 ps2`s and a ps3. i love them. i honestly do. but it ticked me off so much i don't care if they make a 4th one anymore.

Wow, someone who tried a lens cleaner first before asking, cool!!!
Alright, it still sounds like it might be the laser lens, but the dust is probably built up a bit more than a lens cleaner can deal with. This happens, and it sucks. But seeing as both your systems are still fairly new, they should also both still be under warranty, Contact sony and see about getting them repaired. Your only other option would be to open the cases and clean the lens' by hand with a Q-tip and some Iso Alcohol VERY CAREFULLY.

My ps3 will only load cd & dvd it wont load games


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.


If you're just out of warranty by a few days sometimes Sony will do a courtesy repair. It doesn't hurt to ask.

The same problem happened to me yesterday, i was playing GTA IV then it suddenly stopped reading, and now i have a real hard time making one ps3 game work...the ps2 and psONE games work fine, but the ps3 ones dont load or take real hard work to make them load.

Is it a problem from a patch or a virus probably?

Wont recognixe and disc I insert now


Hi Paul,

Do you work for Enercon, the company that makes Corona treaters? I have been working with them for over 15 years at Cryovac.
This may or may not solve your problem. Turn the power off. Then, Press and hold the 1/0 button for more than 10 seconds. Then turn your PS3 off again. Turn it back on to see if it reset the problem.
