Question about Sony PlayStation® 3 (60 GB) Console
Playstaion 3 will not play blu-ray dvds or games will not load blu ray or games. dvds are fine. i'm furious, please help before someone from sony gets hurt!!
I have the solution.
You go to the settings on your PS3 a 'Restore PS3 System'. Once clicked, choose the 'Full Format'
This DOES work. I had the same problem with my PS3 last week, (10th June) so i phoned up Sony Support and they told me to do this. I thought that i would have to replace my Blu-Ray drive but never had to because of this!
Theres a few downsides to this....1. its takes approx 28hours to complete and 2. it will delete everything from your hard drive: music, vids, demos, game saves the lot.
But if you have an external hard drive then you can back up everything onto there, then do the restore. Once you have done it you can then put all your backed up data back on.
Plus you can still get all your purchased downloads from PS store back and it also keeps all your online activity i.e your level on COD4-5 an fifa ultimate team is still there ect.
Other option which will have the same affect but wont take so long is to format the PS3 again found in the settings menu on the PS3.
I would suggest to Restore PS3 System before spending money on replacing the drive when you might not need to.
Note: Again, this advice was given to me by the Sony Support line when i had the same problem on 10th June 09. I Phoned the PS3 line to confirm that i needed the Blu-Ray drive replacing, which to my suprise i didnt!
