Games like God of War 2, Grand Turismo 4 etc take time to load and some times these games are not loaded by consoles with weak lenses or dirty lens.You should consider cleaning your lens.Cleaning lens might solve your problem plus here is a trick for you to play such heavy games(Although its about playing DVDs on PS2 but you can play your game by following this tip the same way.)

Playstation froze; will not play PS3 games or PS1 games


Hi this is a huge problem with ps3 it can be one of two problems the first is the expensive one this is over heating if the ps3 has been used on carpet or placed on top of something like dvd player or video or cable or sky box this causes the ps3 to overheat and the damage is usually to expensive to repiar the other problem alot of people are having is with the fan blowing dust onto the laser lense and this causes the ps3 two stop laying certain games if your warrant has run out you could remove the case and clean the lense but dont use any kind of liquid only use dry cloth but a soft one do it gently.
I dont avise doing this if your ps2 still has warranty left as this fault is covered by warranty and they will replace your ps3.
Im going out for couple of hours now so if you need further assistance let me know ok

Ps3 not recognizing disc is loaded and disc symbol does not appear on menu


Make sure that disc is cleaned, if you have an lens cleaning disc then run it. Depending on which system that you have...not all PS2/PS1 disc not compatable with PS3. Make sure that you have the right one if running an PS2 disc or check the compatability chart with Sony to see if that game can be played with your verision. The new slimmer PS3 unit are not compatible with PS2 disc which is wy the price is cheaper because they don't have the software/hardware added to play those games.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS IS HELPFUL. GOOD LUCK AND THANKS.

MY PS3 will play movies but will not play games?


the blu ray player uses a magnified lens ( likely used in ps3 games too) which is not used when playing ps2 or regular dvds...why they work, any spec or suface wear to the lens will cause the system not to read the discs) , a cleaning disc wont work as the ps3 wont recognize what it is and not play it... only solution i found was to send in for service , which costs @ 150 bucks! I hope this helps

Plays ps2 games but doesnt plays ps3 games or dvds


please verify:
  • your dvd disc region (must be region free or 1 - for USA)
about ps3 games try:
  • restoring your system
  • reinstalling all game data files
  • re-updating your system
  • playing blu-ray MOVIES disc, to check a possible problem with your reader .
if the bd movie doesn't work, you have got a possible problem with your bd reader .
then, take it to an assistance center for hardware repair .

Ps3 games/ ps games wont play but ps2 games will


Hi Binma1990, Your best bet on getting this fixed is to go to Gamestop store and get a DVD cleaning disc kit. This in many cases will work to clean the lens of the laser without opening the PS3 and voiding the warranty. Follow the instructions on the kit in detail to get best results. If you have no luck there and are not comfortable opening the PS3, the playstation Clinic can help. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
