Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

A blank screen


You probably need to reset the video. Here's what you do: Turn the PS3 off from ther back switch and then back on so that the light on the front is red. Then press down on the power button and DO NOT let go. Wait for it to turn green then beep and then go back to a red light. Then press the power button again. After you have tried that, either tell me it didn't work so I can offer more advice or tell me it worked. Thanks. :)

When you put in a blue ray movie the screen goes blank


Search the official playstation website for the latest update and download it to your desktop
Move the file from your desktop to an usb stick or flash card or whatever.
Plug it in your ps3 and update (Info on how to do that should be on the official PS website.)

PS3 wont play load games, have blue ray and normal dvd play


You can try cleaning the laser lens with a cd / dvd lens cleaner cd.

This usually doesn't work, your problem is 98% of the time caused by a Sony defect in the blu-ray drive itself.

The drive will gradually get worse and worse.

If your system is under warranty then by all means get it repaired by Sony for free otherwise you're looking to pay $150 for Sony to repair their own mistake.

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

They'll probably suggest another System Restore, Firmware update and a 100 other solutions that won't work because it's hardware related.

Sorry for the bad news.

When playing a game the screen goes blank after a while


Dude, all you have to do is restart your console and it should start up fine. If it doesn't, keep restarting it until it does. The new-age HD cables have to load a lot of **** to and from your TV to display properly, and if it has the smallest delay, it doesn't display ****.

GAMES WONT LOAD


The same problem happened to me yesterday, i was playing GTA IV then it suddenly stopped reading, and now i have a real hard time making one ps3 game work...the ps2 and psONE games work fine, but the ps3 ones dont load or take real hard work to make them load.

Is it a problem from a patch or a virus probably?

Your HDTV only supports 1080i ? If thats the case make sure that under settings youve got only 1080i selected appart from 480p which is standard.

If thats not the case then tell me: Does sound play or just a blank screen and no sound??? (game crashes)
