The games in My playstation 3 are not loading, what should i do?

could be that your drive has gone faulty, I had this happen to me a couple of times. It will accept the disk but nothing shows up in the menus. I assume all of your disks are nice and clean and have no finger prints all over them? I don't think you will be able to do much at home. It will probably have to go for repair

My playstation has stop loading,but the disc continue spin

Hello, this problem is common. PS1 is a great machine, but the laser disc lens after serving us for years at one point it stops reading discs. Usually this problem doesn't happen suddenly, but there is a time period in between where sometimes it loads games and sometimes not. If you've noticed this symptom, then you may try to bring few more life to the PS. - Switch off your PS and open the round cover, locate where the laser lens is. Wet a cotton bud with one or two drops of a common glass cleaner. Clean very gently the lens for like ten seconds with circular movements, wait one minute so it'll get dry. Now put your game in and see if it has worked. You may try more than one disc if the first doesn't load, because some games are easier to load. - If this won't work, you may try to put your PS standing in vertical. Put it on one of its side, maybe better standing on a wall or on the side of the tv. It may sound weird, but sometimes it has worked for me. If one side wont work, just try also the other one. - If none of the above will work, i may suggest you to get a new one, on ebay you can find still many PS for few bucks.
Hope it'll help, good luck! Peter

How can I fix my Digimon World 3 because whenever my Digimon nears level 40 the game freezes and when I go to the next city the blue squares are stuck..

I got this game too but it has nothing like that. That means there is the most chance that there is corrupt data on your CD (usually gained by having your CD too damaged (meaning too old or just damaged by scratching)).

If this is not the case, it could always be your playstation not being able to load it, Also meaning your playstation is pretty old (old = a decent amount of years), but if you got nothing like it on other games, it should be your CD.

Discs not spinning.

the laser has gone bad which is why its not reading and you did all the necessary cleaning that I would have done.

Best thing is to find a laser for the ps1 or to find a broken ps1 on ebay for cheap and swap out the laser.

Can't load game (beyond the beyond ps1),keep's telling me to load cd .No problems with other games,was bought on e-bay ,there is a few small scratches but should work anyway. What could be wrong???

Try cleaning your cd with a cotton shirt or a tissue. Try again. If it doesn't work, you may have a bad game or a bad console. Try other games. If they also do not work, your console may need to be replaced. Do not fret; a used PlayStation should be under $15 online or at a video game store.

First time seeing "main menu"

The problem is that PS1's are very old. I've actually had the same problem, and one of the theories is that the laser cannot reach the disc.

Buying a new PS1 system from Ebay isn't expensive if you want to completely fix the problem, as Sony does not support the console anymore.

A short term fix is to use a soft cloth to clean the lens and the disc tray, also, once the cd is loaded in, gently flipp the console upside down and then turn it on. This method causes the laser to be closer to the disc and can help peformance.

Plain and simple, though, you're console it wearing out.
