My son turned his PS3 off during a system update and now everything he tries to play won't let him and says error code 8003051e. What do I do to fix this problem?

Ok what I recommend doing is these steps and you should be gaming again:
1. Start Ps3 and in the title menu to Account Management. 2. Click Account Management. 3. Go to System Activation. 4. DO Ps3 System NOT "Psp System". 5. Choose game then select deactivate ps3. (Why? so that way you can log in as your profile later.) 6. Once done go to System Settings. 7. Go down until you see Restore PS3 System. 8. Click it and select yes. (Once you say yes it will restore your ps3 to factory settings, It will take either 2 hours - 8 Hours. Depending on how much memory it has built in.) 9. Once done Download newest updates and let it download. 10. Once complete you should be playing video games in no time. Have Fun Gaming.

When i updated my PS3 for the new Call of Duty it stopped reading the disks. It worked fine b4 the upload but now it wont play any of d games i have. Whats d craic, how do i sort this

It might just be coincidence that your blu-ray drive has packed up at the same time as the update. Ring up Sony and tell them this and you could get a new console for free if your in the warranty.

Wont play ps3 games

try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

My PS3 wont display the menu

A lot of PS3's are getting errors lately... but I thought it had something to do with the newer updates. You are not connected to internet so that can't be the problem.
Those waves might be caused by your sound/vision/stereo cables that connect your game system and TV. See if one of them is loose. (you know the ones that are white and blue and red or yellow and all that)

PS3 Wont Play Game OR Blue Ray Disc

reset to the factory default then load ver 2.60(most current). If the system still does not read any discs the laser is bad.

try to go to your system setting and restore it but you can always check and see if there is a new system update for your system and that might work also
