Re: bought new 60gb playstation

Try resetting the unit. With the Power on and in standby mode (red light on front right of machine is lit) touch and hold your finger on the I/O symbol for 5 to 10 seconds. You should hear a beep and the light should flash once. This is the reset procedure.

Hope it helps.

Hey i can't play my ps2 games on ps3 60gb what's wrong?

The 80 gig Sony PS3 supports PS2 gamesthrough software emulation.
The success of this emulation was poor at first, but Sony has improved it with several generations of firmware upgrades.
If you are experiencing difficulties with PS2 emulation, it is recommended that you upgrade to the latest firmware.
The 60GB PAL model also utilizes software emulation

Also some games may not currently be supported, check here:

Hope I could help with your problem

I bought pro evolution soccer [ current game) n played it i downloaded stuff 2 access game now my playstation is failing 2 delete saved data and my playstation keeps loading i also cannot enter fifa 2008...

I dont think it had anything to do with the game, but playstation 3's are fairly new and like the xbox 360 will have problems until they have been around. I know it sucks but about the only thing you can do is call sony and tell them the problem and chances are they will repair or replace it for free. Most likely they will already have an idea of what the problem is and be able to fix it and send it back fairly quick.

PS2 games not working on 80G Platstation 3

Though the ps3 80g is backwards compatible,it does not play back all ps2 games. go to sony's website,i believe they have a list of games that are,and are not compatible.also make sure your ps3 has all the latest software updates.if you have it hooked to the internet im sure it does

Pes 2008 on ps3

This is a confirmed issue for PES '08.
You'll need to wait for it's developer to come with a patch.

Some games magazines say PES is unplayable because of this defect and the company says there working on a patch.

Nothing more to do then hang in there.
I know this isn't helping you at the moment, but there's nothing you or I can do.

My Gameplay is Jerky! Im not even playing online!

Hi Liam07,

Get a good quality DVD lens cleaning kit. Follow the direction on the lens cleaner disc carefully.
If this does not solve your problem, You probably hanve a heat related issue with the processors. All PS3 Consoles are showing up with dried up heat Transfer compound betwen the Processors and heat sinks. You will need to contact SONY at You will need your receipt and the Warranty sticker must be intact for Sony to exchange your PS3. I wish you the best of luck
