Sounds like you have some hard ware corruption.

Go to System Settings and perform a Restore to Default / Format.

I just had the same problem and managed to fix it.

Plug your controller into the PS3 via USB cable.

Put the PS3 into standby and then keep your finger on the power, every time it switches off hit the power button but keep your finger on it until you see the restore options come up

Press ok to any other screens

Select Restore file system

Press ok to any other screens

Power machine back up and all should be well.

All my games where still there and my settings so happy days. It now plays PS2 games as well, which it used to do but had stopped working a while back.

Ps3 when i turn it on has a yellow screen and wont load games


Try this:

Turn the console to stand by, you can do this by pressing the power button for 10 seconds.

When it is on stand by (a solid red light shows) hold the power button for 3 beeps, remove your fingers on the third beep which should be a double beep.

This should take you to reset your console. You should see 6 options. Select option 2 then the system will go blank. Repeat the above but this time select option 3.

Your PS3 should work after. Good Luck!

PS3 load games or blue rays.


It could be that the settings on your ps3 are configured poorly for your television. Try fidling around with the output, and video settings form the settings section on the XMB. If none of this works then chances are your ps3 is broken.

My PS3 will not play games, only movies.


Short answer its a ..... to fix. Theres multiple lasers in the disc drive that actually read the disc. The blue laser failed. Replacing the drive wont work unless you can reprogram the eeprom chip (or is it nand?) At any rate its just better to upgrade to a new console.

Ps3 wont load games up


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.
