Do a reset to factory default settings. This is under the settings menu. You will need to back up the hd before doing this. What will happen is the system rev will be reset to stock and then you can try the update again. I would try some blu-ray movies before doing this because the laser may just be going out.

I would take the game to a friends house and see if they work their. If they do, then your PS3 must be having some issues reading the Call of Duty formats. If they do not work, then you know it's the disc and it needs to be replaced.

Screen goes black


sounds like you're using an HDMI cable, and the cable is broken. That's exactly what happens when HDMI cables break, a few of those 0s and 1s don't make it to the TV every once and a while, and the TV goes black and the audio dies.

or

go to system update and choose online update. an optional ps3 firmware 3.01 fixes this issue

also, I had a similar situation a while back. Anytime I loaded any disk (game or movie) it would just go black and freeze. I had to do a system reset (where it reloads everything and you lose your data). You can back everything up before that and restore it once you are done. It has worked fine for nearly a year since then.

Freezing and not reading


Sounds like your System has become corrupted.

Have you already tried the System Restore function?

Ps3 errors when launching a game


Check the bottom of the disk for a clean surface, make sure you have updated your PS3 to the current version 2.60 (1/24/2009), and make sure the PS3 can still read other disks (dvd, cd, other game)

Ps3 not reading disk


Actually Ryan, PS3 does has an OS. It's a version of Linux. Shat, does a message come up and say it wont read the disc, or a black screen? If it's the black screen, get a USB keyboard, hook it to the PS3, turn the PS3 on, and type in boot game-os or boot game.os I can't remember for sure which one it was. Let me know if that helps.

My assassins creed wont load????


If you all are still having this problem, this is what I had to do. There are 2 places where you have to go in to and delete the assassins creed game data. One is the normal save data, but there is also a place with the game data that is corrupted. If you go in and delete both the save data AND the game data, it should reload all of that the next time you put the disk in and allow you to play.

You need to try to Update your PS3 from a memory card. Follow the directions on www.playstation.com to download the update using your regular PC and copy the update to a Memory card that has at least 120Mb of free space.

Go to www.playstation.com. Click on "Playstation 3", then click on "Playstation Network". Click on "System Update". Scroll to the bottom of that screen. Click on the next to last bullet called "Update using a PC" Follow the directions in detail.
