PS3 stuck on red light after it froze up. I unplugged it and replugged it and it's still stuck on the red light. It doesn't change or anything even after hitting the power button.


It would help, if you posted the model number of your system, as they do vary sightly. Is there a disk inside they system? This could be the main problem in witch there are several solutions to remove it. If not, than try inserting a disk, as the PS3 auto recognizes a disk being inserted and turns on the system. If the light is on, and it wont let you power it on, then generally it's the stuck disk problem. ^^ Hope this helps, and good luck.

Yes it will delete all your saved data.

You want to keep the data, so you need an external storage device (memory card, flash drive and so on). Copy the data on the device. If anything happens to the PS3, you still have your data on the device. When you restore the PS3, you can put back the data.

Keep us posted.

Hi, nikina_vande!

I had the exact same issue with my PS3 in the past (it was a launch model too). Basically one of the diodes on the disk lesne burned out (this is a really rare occurance) and basically made the whole disk lense usless.

Sadly the only way to repair a faulty disk lense is by getting it to official tech support. You could try ordering the replacement parts and having it repaired by a third party or yourself but this is not recommended since it voids the PS3 warranty.

Hope this helped you!

Try updating your system the manual way:

recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Perform 6, "system update."


If this doesn't work, when your system froze and you powered it down, you may have corrupted your Hard Drive (Hard Disk). You will need to replace it.



When you replace your hard drive, you will need to have the latest firmware on a

usb stick. Download the firmware from the playstation official website onto a usb

stick. Once prompted by your system you will need to insert the usb stick into the

PS3. Good luck..



You will need 2.5" Sata Hard Drive.

2k 11 disc freezing up after it start up.it always stop in the same spot everytime is there anything i can do differently?


If all of your other games play fine, it would most likely be a problem with the disk. It is a recently released game, but is the disk new? Try cleaning it with a disk cleaning product, or windex and a micro-fiber cloth. Did the game work before on this system? Try updating the console via the internet, if possible.

If your PS3 is not reading disc, but can play demos, music, etc. You need to replace your PS3's lens.

PS3 Loading game Problems


try picking up a lens cleaning disk. they have brushes on the bottom that clean your lens. you put the alcohol water solution on the rushes and then insert it into the drive of the ps3. that may work if you have the same problem with all your disks. if you don't have a problem with all your disks, it may be that your savegame is corrupt and you need to start a new one.
