Www xbox support


What disc? a game? ...... If it is a game disc, (I found after many hours of usual research), that when you purchase xbox games New and Used, you need to make sure they were manufactured in the correct Region, ie: Country or origin of the USA. If the disc is from a different region you will constantly have issues with xbox reading the disks....Funny they don't tell you that, and I found this out after purchasing a used game off of amazon and spending more time trying to get the xbox to read the disk than I did playing the game.

Playstation 3 screen says " cannot start, the correct hard disk was not found." after turned on. will do nothing else. any ideas?


A long shot but it sounds like your hard drive has basically "switched off". If you have a USB sata hard drive dock I can help but its a bit of a complicated process. You need to remove the hard drive from the PS3 and plug it into the USB sata dock then connect it to your computer. Goto Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Managment. Look in the lower area of the screen that appears for your PS3 drive, probably E:, and look if it says "Not initialized". If it does, right click where it says that then click Initialize Disk. Put it back in your PS3 when it is done and hopefully it will turn back on. You will lose all saved data though as the hard drive will need to be formatted.

Hope this helps

Games wont read


If you have the problem where the Xbox 360 will not read your discs then you need to stop the sensors overheating and to do this you can send it back to Microsoft or fix it yourself

My PS 3 is having a hard time reading discs. Sometimes it will read them other times it wont or sometimes in the middle of a game i will get a blank screen


Chances are, your disc drive stopped working. No big deal. Just call up sony (the number can be found in the back of basically any game's instrustion manual. You can also find it by pushing SELECT in the playstation store) and get it repaired. Mine only took about a week.

This is a common error unfortuately with PS3. Hopefully your system is under warranty and can be replaced for free.

Good luck to you and Happy Gaming!

PS3


This could mean that ur hard drive has failed, this is a a very common problem for hard disc video recorders (PVR).

If you have the confidence, open ur PS3 extract the HD and connect it to a pc to do diagnostics on the HD

The fan


explain better.

if the fan is damaged, replace the fan. the fan wouldnt cause disc read error. only they that would cause is the system to overheat.

replace the laser on the slim ps2. this will correct the problem. make sure u get the correct model laser. if not the laser wont match the firmware. the model can be found under the laser. google the model laser on try ebay
