This same thing just happened to me today as well its ridiculous.. I was told for 150$ US i could have my 60GiG repaired by SONY, but i am just curious if i need to really pay that much for something when I don't even know what is causing the problem... their are no error messages or anything so I can't see any reason for this to happen out of the blue like this... its terrible... I wish they would offer more solutions over the phone as far as things I could try to get it backed in working order

    ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a
    job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up
    explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally
    reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

I have an issue with my ps3 slim 250 gb, when i insert a disc into the system it does not load the first time, it makes an odd clicking ejeccted disc sound and will not load. I have to eject and reinsert...

Sounds like you have an issue with the blu ray drive itself. This is actually a more common problem with PS3 than many people know. Do not try to fix this yourself as it will void you warranty. Contact Sony as it should still be under warranty and you will need to ship it away and get it fixed.

Ps3 not reading disc..Please help

Do you see the little clock like icon in the top right corner of the screen when you first insert a disc the loading disc icon? if so then it could either just be the drive itself or a software issue in which case you can try a few things before replaceing the drive.

First just reset to factory default settings under system settings.

P.S. i assume its not reading any kind of disc if it isnt reading anything also double check to make sure the disc you are using are still good and not just really dirty or scratched. GIve us more info and what disc your trying to check so we can further help you out.

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.
