Inserted blue ray disc into cold ps3, now dead dead dead

I ejected the movie which was in there and inserted blue ray disc, system said it was searching for updates; then it just went dead!
I unpluged unit and waited a while. Still nothing. Any chance it will run again? What happened?? Can I get my rented movie out? Is it worth messing with or should I just take a hammer to it?

Does it have a red light in front or nothing? If you don't have anything then your power supply has went out and you can pick one of those up for 40-50 dollars on eBay.

Thanks,

Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

Disc won't play


big problem with the early models was a cheap blue ray player.
try putting a blue ray movie in, if it plays its a software issue and reformat the ps3.
if it doesn't you have a dead blue ray player.
send it into sony's referbish program $150.00 and they send you another ps3 so get any data you want to keep off the ps3 before sending it in.

Turn the power switch off on the back of the system. Hold down the eject button and turn the switch back on again. This should eject the disc.

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,

Screen freezes playing Blue Ray discs only.


I answer this question like ten times a day so don't feel bad.

The blu-ray laser in your PS3 is a three part laser (cd / dvd / blu-ray). They last only 1-3 years with average use. It's a Sony defect.

Check out my common PS3 problem and repair guide for tips and suggestions for your problem.
