Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console

1 Answer

I have a 40 gig ps3(manufactured 9/07) that will power on to the menu screen and it will let you put games,and movie discs in,but nothing happens.I tried putting a complete blue ray drive from another working ps3 40 gig that i know works,but it did the same thing with that drive.I have seen posting that this may be the disc spinner motor,but if that was the case, why won't the one from the known to work ps3 do anything.also the blue ray laser is comming on and raising up and down a few times when i turn it on.

It most likely has a bad driver. You can try a system restore to reinstall everything. If that doesn't work you have to call Sony and send it in.

If you did not know this, I will tell you know. You have to go the designated area of what you put in. Let's say you put in a game, go to the "games" section and go to where the icon of the "Blue Disc" where it has the name of the game by it, click on it and it will start. Same for movies.

Inserted blue ray disc into cold ps3, now dead dead dead


Does it have a red light in front or nothing? If you don't have anything then your power supply has went out and you can pick one of those up for 40-50 dollars on eBay.

Thanks,

When you put in a blue ray movie the screen goes blank


Search the official playstation website for the latest update and download it to your desktop
Move the file from your desktop to an usb stick or flash card or whatever.
Plug it in your ps3 and update (Info on how to do that should be on the official PS website.)

PS3 won't even show the menu screen


I suggest trying to reset the system by turing the system off first. ( Do not cut the power switch off in the back of the system). Then hold the on button for 3 beeps. See what happens.

unplug the AC power cord at the back of the PS3 and leave it for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn the console on it should then work. It happened to me a few times.
