Order new blu ray laser online and switch it out yourself with help on the internet. Look up how to replace ps3 laser lens, and you can get photos to help you. I just got my new laser 3 days ago. I switched it out and everything is working great.

ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3


BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps

Sounds like a bad laser, but you should restore the PS3 back to Factory to see what happens.

If you get the same results it's definitely the laser.

Black screen ps3 play


Where are you seeing the black screen?
If it is during game startup, then the game file could be corrupted:
Move selection to the game title that is causing the black screen and pres the triangle button for options, select "delete".

Then do a database rebuild (This also erases any messages, but will not lose game data or account info) -
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
A maintenence menu screen should appear, from that, select "rebuild database".
When it is finished, it should automaticly restart.
Then go to Playstation Store and re-download.
Reinstall and run to get it to update the game again and it should work fine.

If you mean that you only get a black screen when you turn on your PS3, then it could be set to the wrong video output. To get it to automaticly detect your video, use the procedure to get to the maintanence menu and it will display text asking for video setting:
Eject any disk that may be in your PS3, and power off.
Press and hold the power button on the console, until it cycles on and then shuts itself off.
Press and hold again until the console beeps once, and then rapidly beeps again two times.
Text should appear saying whether it detects HDMI video or not, if you see the text, then select "yes", otherwise simply wait a moment and it will switch to composite automaticly.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

It sounds like you have gotten some corrupted data on your hard drive or there is something wrong with your drive. The link below will take you through resetting the drive. Note in your case since the PS3 does boot to the PS3 menu I would recommend backing up any save games that you want to keep before you format the drive.

When i choose mission and play only black screen is appear why this is happening tell me and guide for it thnks


What game is this? COD4? What system? PC? X360? PS3? If it's a PC game, then either the game is not responding, orthere is something wrong with your system. If it's X360, try restarting the console and try again. Same thing goes for the PS3. Restart and try again.

Ps3 display demo games or folding@ home


well it could be the resolution of your tv if your or a damage cable that is causing the problem what you can do is to hook up the ps3 to you tv with the regular cables A/V components(red, white and yellow) and try to play a game or demo, if you could see the picture then is the cable or the display settings. you can also try to check different display settings. for example if you use 1080p change it to 720p and try it to see if it works. also try changing the input to a different input on your tv if you're using HDMI 1 change it to HDMI2. and viseversa
