Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console

2 Answers

PS3 playing Oblivion The Elder Scrolls IV and when I attempt to select continue and it states load complete and I select X to , it goes to the loading screen but the bar where it shows it loading partially turns read then freezes up. I tried to load the last saved game instead of continue and it also freezes up. I can select the last Auto save and it will let me play, but when I try to leave the cave it shows the loading bar which turns partially red then it freezes up. So in other words it can only play in this particular cave. Get to the end and it won't let me out without freezing up

    Oblivion IV Elderscrolls fails to load. Indicator bar stops and load freezes. The only way I have found to get around this is to go back to a previous known good save. Pretty sucky.

    When I put the Elder Scrolls 4: GoTY in and try to load up the first loading part works, but its the screen where there are like pictures in the background. The bar goes up nearly full way and then my entire ps3 locks. The music is still playing but i can't do anything with the ps3 except switch it off. :( I'm a pretty high level too ad hve spent many hours on this game..

    Any other ways of helping? (Ones that don't include loss of saved game data) :(:(

I can only give a partial answer to the problem. I had the same issue so i went to the load screen and selected the last saved game like you did, except from there i saved again (NOT AN AUTO SAVE, OR YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR PROGRESS)after moving a few steps. Reset then selected the game i just saved and when it loaded i had a successful load and left the cave with full play capabilities. Out of curiosity, what cave were you in? Was it the weapons delivery job for the fighters guild? my problem is that ive closed 5 gates since then and leveled up 4 times. i realy dont have to save too often since ive learned to duplicate objects like healing potions and invisibility potions! So if anyone figures this out it would save me a ton of work.

Sounds like a game bug, either that or this bug only occurs for this particular game disk.. check it out on a different ps3, or like i would do, return it or sell it

My games arnt saving, and/or I'm not receiving any acheivements. " failed to right gamer profile settings. One possible reason is if you removed your xbox 360 memory unit. Changes to your profile...

this may be caused from copying files over to another gamertag in which you wouldnt get achievements now about not saving the memory may be full or the system itself is not detecting the drive for memory

Xbox360 seems to be scratching discs

Laser burn, looks like complete or partial circular scratches around your disc, also known as “the ring of death”. This occurs to discs when the games console has been moved whilst playing, from an upright to a horizontal position or vice versa or simply knocked against or the wires may have been just tripped upon. Discs are then impaired by a ring of laser burn, which is a circular scratch into the disc. Some home remedies may help with very light scratches on some discs but professional disc repair services is normally rerquired to restore disc laser burn damage back to "As Good As New Condition".

For further help on Xbox & Xbox 360 laser burn disc repairs or to get discs professionally repaired, visit:

You can send your discs off to this Disc Repair Service and the discs shall be sent back as good as new.

If this is happening consistently without any knocks or movement of the console, I would contact Microsoft for advice on your games console.

My ps3 does not load any disks

You have to contact sony and get a warranty repair done. If it continues to fail after you get it repaired, you are not alone.
I have contacted a law firm that is acquiring info for a possible class action lawsuit. Especially for people who live in California, but everywhere else too: Please have all of your information DOCUMENTED! Write down when your PS3 stopped working and why, whether you have a receipt or not, when or if you contacted Sony, what was the outcome with Sony, if this defect has ever happened before, and what Sony is going to do to remedy this for you. Take all the info and email it to: and write in the subject line "Sony Playstation 3". Additionally, if any of you are on another site or are blogging, repost this to spread the word. Good luck all!

Supposedly games arent region encoded. In fact my brother has an american ps3 and a Resistance: FOM bought in Spain and its working fine. Yesterday I bought a Dream Theater DVD encoded for zones 3, 4 and 6 and it didnt play in my PS3 (Zone 1) so in fact the zone issue can be the problem. Regards
