Usually 80010516 = An error occured during the start operation; PS One game swapped using the eject function and then play pressed quickly, PS One game inserted again.

Well there are only two things that can be done.
1.) Check to make sure the disk is clean, as well as the PS3 vents.
2.) Get a cleaning disk to clean the lens.

If those to do not work you may want to try saving all of your game saves and anything you want to save and do a full system restore (format) IF nothing then, call Sony to have the lens replaced.

If you want you could do this your self. Many online manuals to how to take apart the PS3 and clean the lens.

My Playstation will not read any discs, video nor gaming. I was playing Call of Duty online like usual and it just froze and no longer would load any games. How do I fix it?

Like many others I play video games alot and the consoles now a days aren't extremely sturdy but i'm thinking overheating got to your bluray disk lens was burnt and needs to be replaced so buy a new lens or bluray drive. Also if you don't know what to do send it to sony.

Got error code 80010514 after trying play COD online, screen froze now no other games will play


this error code (80010514) is indeed a hardware failure, to be more specific, the Blueray drive has failed and the system will not run like this. If you can still avail the warranty, then sent it back for replacement under warranty. I hope this may help you,

best regards,

My PS3 wont play games (all of a sudden) time it showed a start up 'error 80010514' can you please help? Thanks


Error 80010514 simply translates as "Error reading disks".

This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is a strong sign that your Bluray drive is malfunctioning.

Sometimes you can resolve it by gently cleaning the laser lens with a Q-Tip and some isopropyl alcohol but most often the lens itself will need replacing.

I have included this excellent walk-through on how you can do this yourself.

Please be sure the console is disconnected from the mains supply before carrying out any of this type of work.

Otherwise the unit will have to be returned to Sony who generally replace the whole drive unit including the lens. Total cost from Sony is $150 to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Ps3 does not read anything blue ray?will play reg dvds?


"Sony has confirmed that 80010514 is in-fact a hardware failure - In particular the Blueray drive has failed and this system can not function like this"

In other words you PS3 is malfunctioning call Sony and arrange a replacement to be sent, Unfortunately there is no quick fix and any attempt to do so will void your warranty.

Give Sony a call they are very helpful

Hope this helped

PS3 80 GB - Error Code 8002991

Hi tomdonnatim,

If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's software to a more current version in order to properly play many Blu-Ray discs.

In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.

More information on the system update can be found below:
