Your blu-ray drive is failing.

This is a Sony defect. It's the number one problem for PS3 owners.

You can either fix it yourself (average cost is $75) or have Sony take care of it ($150).

You can reach Sony @ 1-800-345-SONY

If you want to to go the DIY approach let me know and I'll provide more info.

    Like this. You'll need a special security T10 screwdriver to remove the security screw holding the top cover, or you can just pry it off.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

My ps3 wont load ps3 games


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa.
