Ps3 seems to stop reading disks was working fine then just stopped i cannot hear any noise when inserting a disk and nothing comes up.


Hello,

You can also try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with our finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

If after trying the above options and it still does not solve the problem, then maybe the lens is weak and that's why it cannot read any disc.

I wish you good luck.

Hi. I Was playing on my ps3 yesterday afternoon and i turned it off to have tea. while i was having tea my little sister that is 2 years old started playing with the buttons on the ps3 console. I told her...


It sounds like the laser is dirty, just buy a laser cleaning kit from your local I.T. store, or from a music store, use it in your playstation and then try again.
hope this helps! :D

Dns error for ps3


O.K. I had just had that little problem out of nowhere 2 days ago! First off Reboot the Modem, then the Router. When they are done turn on the PS3. In the PS3 Menu go to the 2nd Row from the Left and Down to Network Settings. Choose your setup Wired or Wireless. Choose DHCP and AUTO all the way through. If you are Wireless you will need your CODE! When done wait a minute then run the Network test right below in the Menu. You should be Good! This should reset your Network Automatically!
