Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 game not starting properly

Ok, im going to try to make this quick. ok, i come home from school, turn on my PS3, put in a game, and nothing happens. I try another game, same thing, restart consol, again, same thing. After a while I determine that the disk is turning, so i know my disk drive isnt broken. I also try to play a CD and a DVD, both work. I put ina game, again, nothing. I then get bored play a demo, durring the demo i hit the PS button and notice that the game disk is showing up on the XMB, i click it, play it, no problems. I turn the system off, restart, no disk again. I start a demo, hit PS button, go to the game, then quit the demo and go back to XMB on the home screen, and the game is there. but if I take the game out and put it back in, its gone. So i can still play games, its just annoying, so if anyone else has had this problem, or knows a solution, please help. thanks

This is a very common problem.

It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.


You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.

Sony will repair it for a whopping $150 USD plus shipping, or you can get a third party repair place to do it for probably $80-$120.

Try a video reset first.

While the PS3 is off (red led)

Hold down the power button until you hear the second beep, quickly release.

Let me know if that solves your problem otherwise it's a corrupt file system.

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

Not loading up to main screen


ok go to youtube and type" PS3 REPAIR/FIX" basicly what you do is put the ps3 on standby (the red light on) and then turn the main power off (the back switch) then hold the I/O button in the front (the on switch you use to put on standby) just hold it until it will go to standby then hold the I/O button again (the standby button) and then keep holding it until you hear one beep, then wait for two quick beeps. Then there should be a menu and select "Restore Defualt Settings". If it dosent work CONTACT SONY!

The only thing you can do is get it replaced or fixed, unfortunately. Take it to wherever you got it with the reciept and they should be able to either replace it or send it back to Sony to get it fixed. If you want to keep all of your data, you'll need to get it fixed - but you can copy all your saved games onto a USB device if you want to (I'd recommend doing this whatever you do, just in case something happens).
