Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The system is very warm to the touch. And I have recently cleaned it thoroughly after the problem started.
I had the same issue with my system, and had to sent it in for repair. They told me the blue ray disk drive was failing. It cost me $105.00 for the repairs. But when I got my system back from Sony, it was like brand new with all new parts.

SOURCE: playstation 3 doesn't read discs
Two things it could be. Either corrupted disc (formatting will not
help this since it's caused by moving the unit while running, damaging
the disc and not corrupting files) or your BRD is malfunctioning. If
it is only on games and not on movies, I would say it's the HDD, if
it's on everything, then the BRD. You can get repair parts on Ebay for
the BRD by punching in KES-400AAA and it takes about 15 min. for an
expert and about an hour and a half for a newbie to replace. Good

You will need to go through the initial setup process before you can use the PLAYSTATION 3.
The Restore Default Settings feature will erase any previously saved settings and restore all of the following settings to the default:
Also, do not confuse "Restore Default Settings" with the "Restore PS3 System" option (the next option down on the menu). The "Restore PS3 System" will not only restore the default settings, but it will also delete all hard disk content. (You will lose all saved content from your PS3 system's hard drive if you use "Restore PS3 System.)

This fault was fixed by contacting Sony Helpline directly & explaining the fault (laser/hard drive damaged). They agreed to fix this fault free of charge & honoured my warranty as I bought this system in January 2007 by faxing them proof of purchase. They arranged to collect my PS3 via courier & advised that it will be returned within approx 3 weeks along with an extended 3 month warranty. I have to say that Sony Helpline were very helpful & their customer assistance was excellent & if your PS3 does breakdown I would recomend that you contact the Helpline first to enquire if they can assist with the problem before seeking to have this fixed at a potential cost of £100.00 upwards by independant PS3 fixers.
