    Tried Updating Firmware From 2.76 To 2.80 (said the Problem Would be Fixed)(Sony Website) Instead Made it worse, now I'm stuck in an endless loop of "An Error Occurred During Update Operation. Contact Technical Support For Assistance(8002F14E)"

    Contacted Tech. Support, Lady I Spoke With Said She Never Heard of That Error Before......

    ?????????????

    Then After 15 Min. On Hold Her Manager/Supervisor Got On The Phone And Said I Had To Send In The System To Be Fixed For $150.00 'Cause It's outta Warranty! Also Found Out The Blue ray Was fine, 'Cause B4 I Updated To 2.80 I Bought A New B.D. Laser & Deck, Just To Find The Same problem...

    ... L8ter Found Out It Was A Firmware/Software Incompatibility W/2.76 & The B.D. Players, Solution Was To Update to 2.80, Now I'm Stuck & have no way to pay to get it fixed in this economy...

Laser needs to be replaced. 95% of the time.

You can try: updating firmware
restoring system, and cleaning the laser lens with a q-tip

It almost never works, but you can try.

Backup your game saves, and then go to System, Restore PS3
(WARNING THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING SO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE STUFF YOU WANT TO KEEP BACKED UP)
Choose the quick format option.
Test the games again, let me know what happens.

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

The PS3 will not recognize games or movies. You load it and it will not show in up in the menu of options. It powers and shows the normal menu but does not recognize games or dvds regular or blue ray.

PS3 won't recognize disks after update


You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........
