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!

Re: ps2 on ps3 game problems

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!

Recently was given a PS2 (slim model scph77001) which was barely used. It will read Gran turismo, but will not read any others (tried 4 different games). All games are standard retail and brandnew. It...

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:

Granttirismo does not open on racetracs keep on loading but does not open

Hello educare have and welcome to FixYa. I see you are having issues with loading your game data in Gran Turismo 5 for the PS3. Sadly it appears that your game data has been corrupted and the data will have to be reinstalled but before we go with that method lets try this first.

1- Go to the Gran Turismo Main Menu and select Options on the lower right half of the screen.

2- Now you will have to scroll down to the bottom of the Options Menu until you see Advanced Options and select it.

3- Now you will see an option to Salvage Data. Select it.

4- Your PS3 will now attempt to recover your data. If the screen after a few moments says Data Recovered then you are good to go however if it says Data Recovery Failed we now have to take more drastic options.

5- Quit your game and return to the XMB menu.

6- Go to Game Data located in the Game Data section.

7- Find and select your Gran Turismo 5 file and press the SQUARE button.

8- You will see the option to delete the file. Select that option.

9- Now we have just deleted your Game Data file but not your Game Save Data file.

10- Return to your game and then retry loading your tracks. If all works out your tracks should load and all of your car collection data and profile will still be fully intact.

I hope you found this information useful and I wish you the very best of luck educare and thank you for using FixYa.

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.

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.

PS2 Disk won't spin

what may have happened is that the saved files for GT4 on your memory card have now become corrupt, and the disk when put in the suysstem is trying to read the data from the card, simply deleting your saved GT4 data from the memory card should allow the disk to play as normal.
