Hi,

The video settings seem out of wack, with the console in standby, hold the power button for about 5 seconds until you hear 2 beeps then let go, this resets the video settings the PS3.

Thanks

Hello..my ps3 (slim) console cant play the disc game because after i instert the disc few seconds later there's a sound (like when the disc start to eject) but the disc still inside and the icon for game...


Step 1: Does another game disc work?
Step 2: If so then the problem lies within that disc. If another game disc does not work check all your discs for scratches.
Step 3: if your discs are all Dirty/Scratched try cleaning them with a soft cloth or disc cleaner. Step 4: If none of these yield results try cleaning out the disc sensor inside the ps3.
Step 5: this can be done with a compressed dust cleaner (spray can) or a very SOFT brush. You do not want to damage the ps3. Step 6: This should yield results. If not then there is a hardware malfunction.

Play station three is not reading discs


Hello,

The problem is that the lens of your ps3 is either dirty or weak that it can no longer read any disc, i advice that you get a lens cleaner to clean the lens of your game, if after cleaning, problem persist, replace the lens on your ps3 so that your ps3 can continue to function as it use to function before.

Replace the lens on your ps3 and you will see that it will start reading discs.

Take care.

My ps3 wont read any disc game or blue ray dosent show icon


looks like the disc drive driver issue ... not recognizing the disc drive... remember that the playstation is a computer. When troubleshooting the Sony treat it as a computer. Might need to replace the disc drive.

PS3 Freezes with all blu-ray type discs.


You are Partially right.
Ps3 actually work with 2 different diode laser inside.one is Blue and one is red and both working on 2 separate circuit but with the same coil.i do believe the blue diode is dead or defective and that`s why you are able to read dvd(regular one) but no blu ray dvd or ps3 games.Try to clean your lens or replace your laser and you will resolve your problem

PS3 having trouble reading game discs!!!


hey guys. the problem is that the blue ray reader is some how broken and it won't work. mine kept freezing during games like after 3 mins. and it wouldnt read any more discs for that day. you need to change the blue ray reader and that costs about 175$. thats alot of money and its probably not worth it.
