Re: ps3 no loading

Ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd

there is nothing you can do yourself. the ps3 BD drive is bad and needs to be replaced. your only choice is to replace the drive yourself or call sony.

also are you able to play games from the hard drive? if so your BD drive is defective.

My ps3 won't load any games

You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

My ps3 will only load cd & dvd it wont load games

It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

If you're just out of warranty by a few days sometimes Sony will do a courtesy repair. It doesn't hurt to ask.
