Sounds like your GPU is cooked. The Graphics Processing Unit on the PS3 has started tohave issues with overheating. If your PS3 is still under warranty, go to and go to the service link. There you will find the info you need to have your unitfixed. I have had to have mine serviced twice. From the day I sent it to them, it was less than ten days when they returned it. Be sure to take screenshots of the graphics problems you are having. If you do not, chances are all they will do is clean the unit, nd add cooling grease to the GPU and cell broadband engine This will help for a few days. But if the GPU is cooked, it will revert to the graphic "glitches" in a few days after service. Heat is the number one enemy of all electronics. Be sure and turn your PS3 off when not in use. Even if it is in "pause" mode, or just on the dashboard it is still causing wear and tear n the unit. Some games will still work fine with a bad GPU. But graphics intense games like Bad Company that run between 60-120fps cause alot of stress on the gpu. Good luck, and Happy Gaming!

My ps3 does not recognise a game disk in the console

Im sorry to tell you this, but your BlueRay unit is dead.

i had the same problem some weeks ago after i update, sadly i didnt have any warrenty left, so i had to replace the blueray myself.

If you still have warrenty left, then use it :)

If you dont have any warrenty left your still able to send it to sony's service center, but this gonna cost you about 150$.
but if you got a little handyman hidden inside of ya, then id advise you to replace it yourself, guides and tutorials how to replace it can be found on youtube, and you save money and time on doing it yourself. :o)

PSR Repair

DO NOT send any electronic unit to this company. They claim SO much on their website, but they DO NOT deliver. Turn around time and "worry free shipping" was reasonable. Took them 5 days to fix after they received the PS3 from UPS. Took 2 days for the package to get there and back (they are in PA) and 2 or 3 days for the original "molded" box to be shipped to you at the start. So it was like 10 business days (around 2 or 3 weeks). The bad part? The most important part: THE PS3 STILL DIDNT WORK. I just got mine back, Im gonna call them tomorrow to get a refund.

Not working

hey, it seems your ps3 optical drive might be broken. if you unplug and restart your console and it still doesn't spin at all, then the drive is just burnt out. if you have a warranty with a store, just bring it in, they should replace it right there. such as best buy. But, if you do not have a warranty or it has ran out, you will have to send it in to Sony. Sorry to be the barer of bad news, im sure this was not the answer you were hoping. i have had my share of console returns with the ps2. thanks for listening.
