Ps3 starts briefly and shuts down

You might have a problem with your motherboard. I had the YLOD with my PS3. I made the mistake to let someone open it and it got damage even more, i would recommend you send it to they were extremely low with price compared than the manufacture and all my data games were saved. Hopefully it all works out!

Installed a new bluray drive in my PS3 slim and get the 8002F14E error at 44% each time. Reset the the system by holding down the power button, the system reset to standard definition but still not...

Are you absolutely sure that you have connected every cable to the blu ray drive properly, including the cables on the blu ray logic board. I don't know if you know this but when you swap a blu ray drive you MUST keep the circuit board that is connected to the drive with the original motherboard. If you have purchased a new drive you will need to swap this circuit board onto the new drive from your old drive. Make sure all ribbon cables are fully pushed into their connectors so the black line on them is right up to the edge of the connector. Also make sure the wide cable from the blu ray drive to the motherboard is fully inserted into the clip.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

For the last 2 days the Playstation will come on but will not read any disks. How do I get it to read disks again?

Hi try putting a normal dvd film in their and see if that will play not a bluray one just normal dvd, if it will then play a normal dvd then this means you need the bluray part replacing if it dont play the dvd then the chances are you need the whole dvd drive replacing,

one thing you can try yourself is if you go to a computer hardware store and buy a cd lense cleaning disk then run this in your ps3 and that will remove any build up of dust and may get it working.

if it dont check if you have any warranty left and take it back if you do, if it has run out then you will need to find someone who can supply and fit either the new bluray or the new dvd drive as its not an easy job to do as the dvd drive has to have the firmware put on it from your ps3 as the data is unique to each ps3 made so this will need flashing onto the new dvd drive if thats what it needs.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

My problem with internet

Hi there Case,

it seems like your PS3's Motherboard could be the problem with you not being able to connect, either their are faulty connections or damaged wires which connect the Ethernet port directly to the motherboard itself, if your PS3 is still within its warranty i wouldnt advise attempting a DIY remedy to the problem, instead i would suggest calling sony customer support and asking for advice to see if they can sort out a repair or replacement of your system

Hope this helps !?
