Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I was playing Burnout Paradise and then the game froze. After that I had to shut off the system manually because it wouldn't get out like most people say. I turn the system back on and I put in a game and it wouldn't get pass the company names. Later it just didn't read the games at all. Soon after I tried a movie and I saw the whole thing. Then I tried putting the game again and it just wouldn't work. The only thing that plays is my Killzone 2 demo which is a game but it works.
It's a Sony
defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average
use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the
original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise
they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at:
Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.
