My Sony PS3 is the orginal 60 GB unit and worked fine for quite a few years until the icon stopped appearing. This meant I could play blue ray, CD, DVDs. I had no problem playing a game that was on the...


Hi,
You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu


  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

Disc not spinning????


I'de just take it down to your local tech store and ask. If they can't buy a new PS3 disc drive or something like that. Keep the receipt and if it doesn't work take the drive back!

Disc never loads


If a disk wont load that is due to one of two things, either the inside of the ps3 is dirty, or the disk is dirty or damaged..

First you could try purchasing a bottle of compressed air thats used to clean computers,

And then try spraying out the inside of the ps3 when the cd door is open.. Then purchase a lens cleaning disk, and run it a few times inside the ps3

If that doesnt work, try to get one of the scratch repair kist for cd disks, and try to clean and repair the game itself as best as possible.

Ps3 doesnt seem to be reading any ps3 game or dvd?? What can I do??


Ok remove any disc inside, unplug it completely and try to spray a can of air inside where you put the disc in. Then on top and the bottom of the unit there are vent holes for air, also spray air in there and behind it also. Then try using a brand new game because maybe you need to update you PS3 so it can read new discs. If that doesnt work let me know.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

My ps3 doesn't show any of the Icons


Yea, i've called sony quite a few times myself and got no help.

You can use the 'new' feature they added. Turn on your PS3 and hold the power button till you hear two beeps, then release. Its a recovery menu you can use to try and fix it. If that doesnt work you may have to send it in for repairs, The menu only works on firmware 2.50 and up.

Ps3 freezes once a game is installed


unplug the AC power cord at the back of the PS3 and leave it for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn the console on it should then work. It happened to me a few times.
Hope this helps.
