Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Games freezing/ discs not reading

Good News - Whilst playing COD5 recently I was losing sound and then the game would stop working. Tried other games and after about half an hour the same thing happened. Rang Sony for help and they are sending me a new PS3 80g on Friday at no charge and get this, my current PS3 is a 60g and is one year and two months old. This is obviously a common fault but you don't get a much better service than that!

    Only difference is, the 80GB they send you may only have 2 USB ports and not backwards compatible! But thats GREAT that they are willing to replace it even though it's over a year old!!

My Xbox 360 keeps scratching my game discs?


Sounds like the xbox console needs the laser adjusted or secured as per the other comments. For any discs issues, read on.

Check to see if there are any scratches or laser burn marks on the discs.Scratches or marks on discs will render game discs unplayable or will freeze the game and will often show a message stating "Disc Read Error" or something to that effect. Best remedy for starters, is to clean the discs and make sure there are no scratches or marks left on the play-side of the discs. A common problem that XBOX owners are reporting is; if the console is moved during play, a whirring noise is heard and then when the disc is removed, very visible laser burn rings are found on the disc.

Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but a professional disc repair service is normally required to fix laser burn scratches or damage to XBOX discs.

For further help on XBOX disc repairs or to get XBOX discs repaired back to "As Good As New Condition", visit:

www.discREPAIR.ie

Check the "More Info" & "FAQ" Sections for further details on disc repairs and related matters.

If this laser burn scenario is consistently happening to your game discs especially if the console has not been moved or bumped against while the disc is in play, the games console itself may require repair. You should contact Microsoft for assessment and guidelines.

Hope this Helps!!

Xbox 360 save and freeze problems


Hi,

I'm not entirely sure what could be causing this problem, but I figured you'd appreciate any input.

If your discs are scratched, this can certainly cause some problems, so make sure that's not a factor.

You said you tried playing without a hard drive. How about formatting the hard drive/memory card? That could possibly do the trick.

The disc lens could be dirty, and for that you can find a lens cleaner. If none of those help, it could be that your hardware is simply damaged. If that's the case, then you'll have to ship it out for repairs.

I hope this was of some help :)

Play staion 2 reads all games but wont read god of war 1 and 2


Best bet is to try a laser lens cleaner and seeing if that helps. I know it sounds silly that it might be dust on the lens when only THOSE games don't work, but stranger things have happened.
