Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Not loading any discs.

I bought a console on ebay and when I recieved it everything turned on perfect. When I went to put the game in it took it in and spit it right back out. I load the disc in the tray and it will not take it until I press the load button and then it spits it back out again. Then I'll press the load button first then load the disc and it takes it in and will not spit it out. But it will not load the game. Any Suggestions?

Why would my console all of a sudden stop recognizing game discs?

Hi Murray

Had the same prob with my sons PS3. Turned out to be the laser. Bought a new one on Ebay for under 20 quid. Sorted. Can't say for sure this would fix your x box though.

I put in my portal 2 game disc and the ads show then it lods perfectly fine then all of a sudden BOOM! the screen goes green and fuzzy. I can still see the words and everythings but the backgrounds fuzzy!...

If you have scratches on the disk take it into a video game store or a movie store and get it resurfaced this should help ushally costs about $4 or so to have done. Take it to a Play N Trade Video Games store if one is around and they would be able to test it out for you as well.

If this does not help then it could be the machine itself but if you have had no other issueswith any of the games the disc repair should help.

I loaned out my copy of NFS:MW and it got trashed. I bought a new copy and it won't let me load my saved games. I checked and both discs are same version. I also checked the memory card, which has saves...

I owned that game a few years back, so much fun.
I had a similar problem. I had to get a new copy of it because I lost my old one. Well when I put it in it wouldn't let me load my old profile, so I took out the memory card, took out the game disc, turned off the PS2. Turned the PS2 back on and let it sit without anything in it for a little while, then I put the memory card back in a different slot, checked to see that my saved games from NFS:MW were still there, and then I put the disc in and it loaded my profile.
This worked for me, but it may be that the serial brands on the two discs are different. Since the release of the PS3, PS2 discs have been made with a back tracking element to allow it to be played on all sony systems in the future. So it may be that your old disc was pre-backtracking and your new disc or post-backtracking. If that is the case, i'd say go to your nearest gaming shop and let them come up with a solution. It's better to get hands on help with stuff like that.

I have a PS2 slim which works fine except for one game - Drakan: Order of the Flame. I just bought it from ebay. The first time I put it in it didn't load so I took it out and wiped it with a cloth. When I...

Do you know anyone else with a PS2 that you could try it on? You need to know if it is the game or PS2.

It could have been that the disc has faded due to storage or being left on a windowsill and this can be hard to notice.
