Question about Nintendo Game Boy Advance Console
I was playing john woo's strangllehold. i had just died and was about to restart the level but the game took a long time loading , it never restarted. i turned the console off and truned it back on it i could noy get pass the menu page. usually when i put a game in it automatcally starts so i dont know wsup.
For me it happed after i installed the game content of "Dynasty Warriors
6: Empires and added the online content, after a reboot with with those
installed it stopped working.
What causing this is still a mystery for me, might be Software issues or old hardware.
This Worked for me:
(Got my save games backed up on a Memory-stick.)
1. Restore PS3 system.
2. Reboot when done with the Restore.
3. press and hold the Eject in 12-15 sec (with no dicks in it.)
4. Reboot again. (its important)
5. Insert game

Just had same issue, played blue ray's and ps2 games but not ps3 games. Re-formating the hdd did not fix the problem. Held down the eject button as indicated above for 15sec and fixed the problem!!!

You have to reset the hardware.. go to settings and click reset format ... it sucks because everything on your system has to get deleted but the game will work after

The problem could be the laser that reads the discs.. mine has the same problem. i insert the discs wether it be blu ray, ps3, or a dvd and the ps3 just reads the discs constantly... doesnt play them or even recognize what they are.

There is no way to fix this problem or any problem for the PS3. The only thing you can do is call sony, pull your pants down, and pray that they use K-Y as they RAPE you. $150.00 to be exact!

This happened to us also. I couldn't even turn off the PS3 the right way. What I did was push and hold the power button until i got three beeps, the PS3 told me to connect my controller to the unit and press the ps button. After which, there was a menu.
2. Restore Default Settings
3. Restore Files (or something along that lines)
4. (something.. can't remember reformat?)
I pretty much just went in order. I started with the 1st thing and got to the 3rd. It then told me that my harddrive was corrupt and it fixed it and started loading after that.
The problem I'm having NOW is that I can't get it to play the downloaded games we bought. I don't want to buy them again... Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Welll My games won't play at all. Like I have black ops and when it is inserted inside my ps3 it won't even show up on the main screen. It then makes a noise like it wants to come out but it then goes back in. I usually just keep taking it out and putting it in. Lol.. anyways.. After about an hour and 30 mins it finally works. Are there any solutionsssssss?

I have a similar problem. - system reset does not fix it - already has the latest firmware - disk format did not fix the problem If it is out of warrenty (mine was) its a flat $150 from Sony to fix it. Lots of folks suggest software fixes but there is at least a class of these issues that is clearly hardware.

It just happened to me as well today but all i cant find about how to fix the problem is to take it back to the shop and get a new one-i know its not really a "how to fix it" but unless you want to break it open and have a go cutting wires id just return it for a new one and hopefully the shop wont charge.

Power cord fell out while games was on pause. Now my ps3 wont play any games. WTF. SONY WARRANTY BETTER GIVE IN.

This is such ********. I'm just glad I only paid 350 for it instead of 500 or 600 bucks. Fuckin Sony can kiss my ***! I sure hope the guys at Ebay that sold this to me aren't a bunch of scam artists. It was used, after all.

If it will not read a game that you download do a system reset the games will download.I did that today because my downloaded games would not work they will work then.
