Hi there,

Try updatings your firmware via the ps3 website, if this down work then down grade it.

alot of people have problems with the blu ray laser breaking, it might need cleaning, so follow these instructions to get to blu ray drive.

once you have got to the drive simple unscrew all the top case screws and remove ribbon cabbles then clean lense with cotton wool bud n lense cleaner. if this still dont work then you are goin to have to order a new laser for it, you can get them of ebay

hope this helps :)

Tip

Try this to play DVD movies on your PS2 if it wont play DVD movies.


If your PS2 works fine with Games and just wont play any DVD movies at all.Then you should try this trick to play movies on your PS2:

  1. Turn on your PS2 without inserting any disc.
  2. Menu screen will appear like:894e4e5.jpg
  3. Press the ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle) Button to enter Version Information Menu that looks like3aef030.jpg
  4. Highlight the Play Station Driver as above and again press ps_b_triangle.gif (triangle).
  5. New screen will appear like0163e66.jpg
  6. Highlight the Disc Speed as above and press ps_b_x.gif button,to enter Disc Speed Menu
  7. And set it from Standard to "Fast".
  8. After you set Disc Speed to Fast, Press and Hold Reset Button to turn off your console.
  9. Then again Press and Hold Reset Button till the Blue Light turns on.
  10. Remove the Reset Button and Press it again.
Be patient and wait till the movie plays itself.If your lens is good then it will play DVD in first go else try again till it PLAY your DVD movie.


Thank you!

Games will not load,I have tried movies,and games,everything else seems to be working fine,just cant play movies or games..


Ok, if you are having problems with loading games/movies that are disc based and not ones that are in the HDD (Hard Drive) or on a usb drive (This means digital movies and games), chances are your PS3's Blue Ray drive is damaged and you will need to get a replacement. If you can't play anything even if it's Digital/HDD based or Disc based, you may have to send it in for repairs, or get a Replacement PS3.

It wont play games or movies


Laser has to be bad then if its not reading brand new games or dvds. To verify this though get a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there is no specs of dirt or dust on the laser.

Now try the games and dvds again and if its still happening then the laser needs to be replaced and you can get them fairly cheap off of Ebay.

Playstation 2 will load the game, but then only show black screen


You might of had one of the wires connected from the TV to the PS2 damaged and may need new ones or just make sure that the wires connecting each other from the TV to the PS2 are well connected. My little brother use to drop my PS2 a lot too and that happened to me once, but it turned out to only be that the wire got pulled too much when it fell and it disconnected from the TV to the PS2 and I had to only put it in well.

Sanyo DS24205 24" TV input problems


Hi,
I'm sure you know you need the original remote if there is no menu on the front of the set. I suggest doing a search for customer support online for Sanyo products. There you will find contact numbers to see if one is available. Try "Sanyo remotes" on Google or Yahoo etc. Hope this helps
