Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I had my ps3 for a month and it was working perfectly until yesterday wen i would put in a game and there would jst be the little circle in the top right corner that jst keeps on going around and around. i had my ps3 for 3 months. and yesterday i put in a disk and it doesnt read. it doesnt even recognizes dat i even put in a disk. nothing. i am pissed. they tell me if i send it back, it could take up to four months and there is no guarantee it would be fixed. what shold i do.
I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.
