    I have the same problem of my PS3 where it takes the disk, but no screen pops up. Even the menu. The thing to, is that my grandmother bought this for me and I dont think she put any warranty on it or anything.

Call Sony, they built a unreliable device. Its mainly Texas Instruments fault. Tell Sony your PS3 stopped showing video after you did a update. They might fix it for free.

The Playstation 3 will not read any discs. It barely moves the disc inside. All software and internet are working perfectly. Even when I formatted the PS3, it still wouldn't read anything. I have a 40GB...


Your blue ray lens needs either cleaning or replacing, maxwell as brought out a blueray lens cleaner disc recommended for even ps3 consoles. If that doesn't work though you have to send it to sony or approved sony repairs centres. Search on google for ps3 repair centres near your area.

When i hook up the ps3 it turns on but nothing comes up on the tv


the only times this has happened with me is when the lead was not pushed in all the way at the back of the console. Or the tv was not set to the correct channel or the lead going into the tv was not sitting correctly. Try all of these three things to see if it helps. If not try pressing the power button on your ps3 until you hear 3 beeps to reset the display.

Jammed cd drive


  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.
