Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 won´t read a game worked perfectly 2 hours ago

Ok... here i go. This morning, my little brother was using COD:WaW or Call of duty 5, for simple, in my ps3 (i say this because other people experience this a lot) and after he finished, i put in my Fallout 3 Disc. Now, i played about...1 and a half hours. i then ate, and left on my bike to do some workout about 2 hours. when i came back, i tried to play my game, of course, and to my surprise the ps3 wouldn´t read the Fallout 3 Disc. it enters perfectly and it stays in my menu screen over my Trophy collection, but it wouldn´t read THAT disc, as i popped COD and MGS and other tittles I have and worked perfectly. Now, i noticed, on the disk, and this after doing all the usual troubleshooting process, that it had some MINUSCULAR markings, 4-6 dots under a milimiter big, and these markings weren´t there before, so it´s possible my PS3 did those markings, since my game had been getting stuck a couple of times and etc....or that someone else aforementioned was tampering with my possesions, but i doubt so. This is scaring me, since games here can only be bought online (I live in Venezuela, and thus, cannot call Sony, otherwise games would escalate to over 120 US dolars due to monetary exchange) and it also is scary to think that my ps3 could do that to other games. So i´m wondering what the heck can i do for my game to work again, other than calling sony. Also i bought my game over a 2 hour boat trip to Margarita (The island, not the drink) so you can see why it would be hard to replace it. also my PS3 is a 60Gig version, updated, no other problems. Thanks and God bless the person who could help me.

    Ok. look, i turned it off. it is EXTREMELY WELL VENTILATED! away from anywall by enough space on a relatively cold room and i have NEVER bumped it. as a matter of fact my ps3 came here on a box filled with that foam thingy and bubble wrap and it has never happened before.

3 Options that you should check


If you did leave the PS3 on it is possible that it did this while the console idled

During the period this game was in the console did you accidently bump/knock over you PS3? If so it would not suprise me if the game got scratched from this

Is your PS3 well ventilated? An arising issue with these consoles is overheating is becoming a factor in both damaging hardware and games


Hope my comment was of some assistance ;)

It freezes when beginig the intro 2 the game


make sure your other games are playing fine. If your other games are playing fine then make sure the disc for call of duty WAW is clean with no smudges or dirt on the bottom and top of the disc.

If you still have problems then the disc for call of duty is bad and you would need to get another one.

If your other games are having probblems then take a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there are no specs of dust or dirt on the laser.

If you still have problems then the drive would need to be replaced.

I have a ps3 and it will play any other games but cod 5


This is a tough one to diagnose, I'd recommend trying to clean the blu-ray drive with a cd / dvd cleaner cd.

Try this first, since it's easy to do and we'll go from there.
