Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
First try and reset your PS3, you can do it by system settings menu and from there select "Restore option". If that doesn't help then check the setting UMD Cache to "off" from ps3 settings menu. If it doesn't fix your issue then you should try this firmware update--

If this also doesn't work then do a hard reset. Be sure to backup your settings/games saves by doing a System > Backup on your PS3 or you may lose your game saves. Also, this is a last resort procedure prior to exchanging/returning to sony.
1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch.
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn’t detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).
If this also doesn't work then ther might be a some hardware issue with your PS3 and you should visit sony.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.
