Ps2 on ps3 game problems

For the last few days Gran Turismo 4 as been working fine on my ps3. However when i tried it as usual most recently the game didn't load and it stayed on a blank screen and my controller couldn't even pick it up. I tried more PS2 games and got the same problem. Is this the PS3 problem or has the ps3 suddenly changed the settings to an incompatible mode. Please help me!

I also had this problem running PS2 games. I noticed that when it happened, my bluetooth remotes becames unpaired and could no longer be used to turn the PS3 on/off. Pressing the PS button would not interrupt the hung PS2 game (i.e., it would not give me the options to quit the game, turn the system/controller off, etc.). I talked with the Sony Playstation folks and they suggested resetting the bluetooth controllers (by poking the hole on the backside next to the screw hole). They said sometimes the bluetooth info gets honked. Just before this problem popped up, I was messing around with pairing a bluetooth headset and may have interrupted the pairing. You may have a similar situation, so try resetting your controllers. You may have to plug into the USB port if they won't re-pair after resetting (I did). Good luck!

Yes the problem is the laser. It's on its way out (and is almost completely out). You can find a new laser for the 77001 console at the following page. They also sell the completely laser assembly which includes all moving parts in there:

I put in the game Gran Turismo 5 into my PS3 and instead of loading in the game the screen pops up and says (Accessing game data. Please do not switch off the system while the HDD access indicator is...


This means it's loading your Game Data. There's nothing wrong with this appearing on the screen, it's common and simply indicates that it's loading your last saved state.
If it's stuck on that for a long period of time and not taking you into the game, then you need to go into the Saved Data Utility on your PS3 and delete your saved data file for Gran Turismo 5. Something might be corrupt.
Gran Turismo 5 uses a lot of the PS3's power, so having longer than average load times doesn't mean something is wrong with your PS3.

I had a gran turismo 4 that went out so I bought new and it does not act now, even though it is quite new


do you have a slimline ps2? the problem is more than likely with the drivers in your console. do all your other games work just fine? only gt4 thats not working? gt4 is a duel layered disc unlike most games.
my console won't play it either. plays all other games, even ones on the blue discs wiv no problem.

Gran turismo 4


i have the same problem, used to work fine now it doesn't and i've bought 4 copies of the game! gt4 is one of a few games that are on a dual layered disc, witch is why other games work but gt4 don't, so you would natraly think the problem lies in the game disc itself. ive been on the phone to sony and acording to them its because the drivers in my system are knacked. for £50 they will come to my house and take my ps2, and replace it wiv one they have referbushed. kinda steep when i could go to game station and buy one for £20 and still get to keep my console.
aprently this problem is more common on the slimline consoles.
what do you have?
i have a slimline SCPH-70003 witch ive owned from new and taken good care of.
its anoying cos out of the 80 something games i have, my favriout, gt4, is the only one the wont work!

Playstation2 DVD read error ''The disc could not be read''


I've encountered similar problem with my PS2. I really can't play the disc that I bought. There might be some burning problem that difficult to read by your PS2. What I did I've tried to copy it and burn in to a better DVD disc and it works. Try it.

Generally the game options must be set to use the wheel instead of the standard controller. In Gran Turismo 4, for instance, there is an options screen where you can configure the steering wheel.
