    No error code, still got the icons along the top but background is black, (daughter insists it was blue) still shows all the saved game data too. Nothing happens when the disk is loaded

This is the number one problem with PS3's.

98% of the time the blu-ray drive needs to be replaced.

You can either repair it yourself by following guides on youtube (total cost around $60-90)

Or you can have Sony repair it for $150.

You can reach Sony @

1-800-345-SONY

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Why everytime i play movie or video (download, played using cd-rom) my screen turns flicker/static but when i play some videos from net like youtube or streaming, im not getting any problem. Audio is...


Sure,
This seems to be a problem with

1- Your DVD / CD player , which is not reading the video files properly probably because of a damaged lens.
2- Your RAM is less than the amount which is required to play the video file properly.
3- The CD / DVD itself if it has scratches or has done bad, if this is the case with all video cds/dvds then this is not the problem.

Now to check if it's not a problem with your DVD or CD player reading the disc,

Try copying the video file to your hard disk and play it , if it works ok , it could be the reason that your CD/DVD lens is damaged and not in best condition.

Tv not reading the play station3 , both switch on and seem ok


This is most probably due to the cable you are using, try unplugging the AV / HD-MI lead and blowing it to remove any built up dust. If that fails you will need to replace the cable you are using.
Any further questions feel free to ask.
