Is this a new system? The PS3 is having problems with some disc drive bays.

So, go to this link below to find the method to do a full system reset and then use a CD Disc that is designed to clean the lens of the laser.

Visit the official PS3 website for repair options.

    OR TRY THIS...

    With the system on standby, hold the power button until the third beep.
    The system will turn on with the first beep, reset the settings with
    the second beep, and then turn off again with the third beep. Repeat
    this process and you will hear a double-beep at the end and the system
    will stay on and it will tell you to connect a controller via the USB
    cable.

    This will bring you to the recovery menu. Try rebuilding the database or restoring the file system.

I can bet you that your xbox 360 is vertical? am I right? If no then my disk holder gets jammed a lot, so i would get 2 small flat head screwdrivers and pry it open. So put your xbox 360 horizontal. This would also fix the problem. If your son still has the language screwed up u have to learn some spanish or watever it is to figure out how to put it back. It would be on profile settings.

System shows that the disc is loading, but does


That sounds like a faulty laser. Unfortunatly,Sony has not fixed this yet and i don't think they will anytime soon. I would suggest cleaning the laser lens first with alcohol and a q tip,if that doesnt work,have the laser lens professionally. If none of the above help,then it's the spindle motor and that can be tested by putting your hand on the ps3 after you slide a disk into the loading slot and feeling for very small vibrations.

PS3 won't recognize media, i.e. DVDs, games


So your DashBoard doesn't even come up at all? What happens when you turn the PS3 on with the game inside of it? Try using a lens cleaner to see if it is perhaps your laser that is being blocked by dust or something. If nothing works you may need to reload the PS3 Operating System (OS).

Hi,
try putting a laser head cleaning disk in.
Check that the machines region coding is the same as the country your in.
You may only be able to play JAP Or NTSC-J Games on this Console, due to region compatability restrictions.

turn on ps3 leave on stand by (red light), hold eject button and power button until you hear beeps and a message appears. connect controller and press ps button. system restore screen should appear, select restart system and from there it should restore everything back to normal.
