Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Wont load games

My PS3 one day just froze while i was playing a game. Now it wont load any discs. I got it to work early today for about an hr then when i tured it off it would work again. I dont know what to do. I tryed cleaning it with canned air but that doesnt seem to work. I'm really trying to avoid sending it to Sony because I do not have the 150 to pay for a refurbished one. i was playing the show this morning when in the middle of a game the umpire and commentators were quiet. i didnt really think much of it at first, but then it seemed like the disc was skipping because i was on base and the pitcher was throwing the same pitch and the batter kept fouling off the pitch in the same area. played rest of game then froze at the loading screen after the game. it unfroze seemed like the sysytem was operating normal again. i quit the game and ejected to disc and noticed many finger prints on it. i have 3 roommates so its tough to keep my discs clean, anyways i cleaned the disc put it back in and thats when the system was not reading in hd anymore and my settings were reset to default and the disc wasnt reeading anymore. i tried a few different ps3 games, nothing, tried some dvds, nothing, but everything else is operating fine. also when i put a disc in, i have a solid green light and a solid blue light on, can anyone help me out. thankx

Sounds like it could be a dirty lens buy a lens cleaner disk (bout 10 bucks) this should fix your problem

Ps3 wont load games or movies ps3 froze during


This is usually caused by a bad laser. Try cleaning it first to see if that helps. If it doesn't then it will need to be replaced. Check out www.wiredextreme.com or call 214-222-5788. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty.

PS3 Error message...


This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.

Wont load games


Could be a couple of things...The laser that read discs could be damaged, could be the motor that spins the discs is wearing out, or could be that dust has built up on the motor that spins the discs...hard to say without taking apart ya system, doing so will void any warranties. You are better off sending in to Sony or opt to buy another one.
