You will have to replace the laser in the blu-ray drive. It will run about 80 dollars just for the laser. If you need more information email me at ced70@hotmail.com

Thanks,
Ced

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

PS3 wont play blue ray or PS3 game discs


Please check the region code on the BD or DVD. It should match the region code set in the system. Otherwise the disc will not play

When we start the system we get message "This hard disk file system is corrupted and will be restored". If we hit O.K. it start to restore but nothing happens after that.


This problem always happen when you switch off your console while it is saving data or reading data from the HDD, so your HDD file system damaged, in order to solve this problem you need an external SATA 2.5 hard disk case, extract your PS3 hard drive and insert it in the SATA 2.5 case, plug your hard disk to a computer, you will find that the whale hard disk is unallocated, so format it with FAT32 or NTFS using your computer, after that return your hard disk to your PS3 console, now, your PS3 console will recognize it, and it will ask you to format it, say YES!!... congratulation your PS3 console is working now

BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA IN THE HARD DISK INCLUDING YOUR SAVES, IMAGES, MOVIES AND ALL YOUR STUFF


If the above solution does not work you would have to buy a new HDD for your PS3

Ps3


most likely your hard drive is full.
Go to Settings-System settings-System information. it should tell you free space on your hard drive from your total available space.
Your drive is probably filled with demos and saved data from previous games, maybe music or even dowloaded movies.
If still had the same issue after the restore there is a chance that your hard drive was swapped for a very small one. ckeck the system info first:

Free space : 12 GB/37 GB this is for a 40 gb

If that is the problem you need a different hard drive (SERIAL ata 5400 rpm ).. upgrading the hard is easy.. or even go with an external drive.

MY PS3 WONT READ PS3 DISKS, BUT HAS NO PROBLEM READING PS2 & PS1 DISKS


Hey man i found a solution to this problem i fixed my ps3 over nite, and i would like to help out, i have the 80gb and after days of research i realized that the problem is in your hard drive, its corrupted whether it gives you the error or not, at first i DIDNT think this was the problem since it never gave me an error but when i went to the reset screen (or how ever is called) by holding the power key down till it beeped three times and went to option RESTORE FILE SYSTEM and after that it said the system files were corrupted and would be restored and fixed but after doing so no matter how many times i chose that option it would always say files were corrupted. dont SEND IT BACK TO SONY, dont GET ANOTHER ONE, dont GET PISSED AND THROW IT AT YOUR MOM OR ANY MEMBER OF UR FAMILY ITS NOT THEIR FAULT LOL =]......HERE'S HOW TO FIX PROBLEM WITH YOUR PS3 THAT STOPPED READING blu RAY AND PS3 GAMES BUT WILL READ YOUR PS1 AND PS2 GAMES AS WELL AS REGULAR DVD DICS AND MUSIC DISC......GOOD LUCK HOPE IT HELPS YOU..........................................WARNING!!!!!! THIS WILL ERASE EVERYTHING FROM UR hdd SO DO A BACK UP OF UR GAME SAVES MOVIES MUSIC OR watever U GOT IN IT THAT IS PRECIOUS TO YOU cuz THIS WILL DELETE EVERYTHING FROM IT, dont SAY I DIDNT WARNED YOU, YOU NAGGERS LOL
THIS FIX WILL TAKE UP TO 6 HOURS DEPENDING ON YOUR LAPTOP AND PS3, MAYBE LONGER BUT LETS HOPE NOT.........HERE IT IS,

THINGS YOU NEED: laptop and recovery system disc(s) for your laptop

STEP 1: take out any disc if any from your 80gb ps3 and properly turn it off.

2: turn power switch off from the back and turn it back on.

3: go to the restore screen....this is how, now this is important, press and keep pressing power button( or key, how ever u WANA call it) on ps3 to turn it on but hold it and wait for 3 beeps till it turns off. now your ps3 will not know u WANA go to the restore screen the first time you try this so do the same step again and it will beep once then it will beep twice repeatedly and bang!! your on the reset screen LOL

4: now take your usb cable and do as the screen says, plug ur controller in and press the ps button on the controller and it will then give you 6 options to choose from, YOU WANA GO TO 3 "RESTORE FILE SYSTEM" but hold on there, dont click yes yet.

5: open the hdd(hard drive) thingy on from your ps3 and take off the blue screw that holds it but dont take the hdd out yet.

6: THIS ONE IS IMPORTANT!......you will select yes when it asks if you really want to proceed to restoring file system and after ur tv flickers and pops up the screen saying the files are corrupted and will be fixed and restored pay attention cuz you need to take your hdd out as soon as it begins to do the restore, YOU WANA TAKE OUT UR hdd WHEN THE PROCESS BAR IS ON 0% NOT 1% NOR 2% BUT 0% ZEEEEROOOOOOOO PERCENT(now leave your hdd on a safe place rit now where nothing will happen to it) if YOURE not quick enough your WOUNT catch the bar at 0% it but thats cool cuz you can try again just repeat the first steps.

7:ok now you need patience here, your ps3 will need to stay on for a long time showing the process bar on zero percent and eventually it will pop up another message saying that there was a problem restoring the system files and that you will need to format the hdd but trust me it will take a looooooong time till u get this message, i left it on over nite so idk how long exactly it took but hey idk, maybe it only takes second for u who knows????.....??? ?? ? WHILE YOU WAIT TO GET THIS MESSAGE YOU NEED TO FULLY FORMAT YOUR hdd USING UR LAPTOP OR SOMEONES LAPTOP, IT IS IMPORTANT cuz OTHER WHISE YOU WOUNT BE ABLE TO FULLY FORMAT YOUR PS3 hdd, WELL THE POINT IS, YOU NEED TO DO A FULL AND COMPLETE FORMAT TO IT, USING A COMPUTER, LAPTOP OR NON LAPTOP AS LONG AS YOU CAN ACHIEVE THIS YOURE GOOD TO GO, NOW THIS IS HOW I DID THIS....and dont think, oh well i could just do that using my ps3, trust me, i did that a million times and none of those times worked, i just wasted my time like an idiot =[

8: TURN OFF LAPTOP, now take the hdd out from ur laptop and connect your ps3's hdd on it......(you may need to take the outter metal cover form the hhd to be able to plug it in to the laptop), this is where you need your laptops recovery disc that came with it when u purchased it and if you dont have one then get one or else YOURE fucked =] .........ok now turn the laptop on and as soon as its turning on, go to the boot menu on your laptop on the first screen it gives you, in my case i had to press the F12 key, could be different for you....now when the other screen wit the boot from options pops up, put ur recovery disc in and when ur done choose to boot computer from disc drive meaning from your recovery disc.

9: ok well now you need to choose to "FULLY FORMAT" your hdd just go for the option or options that seem to take the longest time, if u get an option to fully format and delete all sectors and partitions from the hdd then go for that.....thats the message i got i think or something like that. the process will take up to 5 HOURS remember i said you needed patience, make sure your laptop is plugged in to its charger, you dont want it to turn off while it is doing the format. now go watch tv or something cuz this is gona take a long time, formatting 80gb takes a pretty long while, and if you do this before you go to bed then even better you just get up and start a new day knowing ur ps3 will survive this and u will go back to being happy wit it like before =] yay.

10: ok well now that the format is done and ur laptop says is ok to turn computer off, turn it off, it might do it by itself idk, it DIDNT for me i had to click restart now, ok by this time your ps3 should have given you the message saying that there was a problem doing the file restore and that will need to be formatted, now take off your ps3's hdd from your laptop and plug it back in where it belongs, on your ps3 and once it is in place YOURE good and ready to go, take your ps3 controller and click on YES, format hdd, and then it will format your hdd without problem.

SUCCESS!.......yay try putting in your favorite ps3 game blu ray movie or watever you want to test it with and it should work like it worked for me. remember formatting the hdd wit the ps3 itself WOUNT help you at all, this is the best way to fix your problem...good luck and i hope this also helps other people with this problem...latz and feel free to ask any questions, anyone can.
