Question about Sony Video Game Consoles & Games
Just pulled the Playstation 1 out of a box. It hasn't been used for about 6 years. I've hooked it up to the TV. ..Turned it on...I get a "SONY COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT" picture on the TV...But when I put in a game disc (Panzer General) nothing happens...I don't hear the disc turning, and I have no instruction manual.
When you open the lid there is a piece of plastic that pushes down a button that tells the unit to start spinning the disc.
With the unit off, open the lid. Power on the unit leaving the lid open, make sure game is in place. After the playstation loads take a toothpick and press down the button that would normally be depressed by the lid closing in the back right side.
Keep holding down the button for a few seconds. If the disc does not start to spin then give disc an each kick start counter clockwise. You might have some dust preventing it from spinning, make sure the disc lens (on the black thing that is under the disc) is clean.
If it starts spinning, close the lid and there you go.

I would try cleaning the laser lens.

Tips for a great answer:

80710723 Possible Port Error - Try opening ports , TCP port: 80, 443, 5223 and UDP port: 3478, 3479, 3658. or add Ps3 to DMZ
You really might want to try creating the connections again on your PS3 system on the same modem/router you are using.
Just re-configure you connection settings and see if that helps.
