Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
It wont read any of my games its an annoying
Just fold a buisness car in half the long way. don't fold it hard.
slide it in the disk slot about an inch to open up the rubber flaps.
then just blow hard.
TIP: try not to spit in there . first clean the dust off the ps3..... dont want to take the chance of putting more dust in there. canned air will work too just make sure you spray air not liquid .
If your diode is not burned out yet then this should fix your problem.
1. Plug in controller
2. Have system in standby mode (red light)
3. Hold down power button for a full cycle (will turn on and back off again)

Your best bet is to send it in to SCEA for repair. Takes about 2 weeks with shipping and return. If not covered by warranty, you will definitely pay $150. After you get it back, you will be covered for 90 days after that. If you have unresolved issues again after the 90 days expire you will pay $150 to SCEA again unfortunately. Sony’s take is that with over 20 million units sold but this issue only happening to a few (I think more than a few), they are not going to recall. Obviously sales of new PS3’s will be affected if they recall. But if more folks complain or blog about it, it may affect sales anyway and they will recognize there are issues with the PS3.
