You have a problem with the inner hardware that should only be fixed by Sony. I know it's a pain, but you paid a lot of money for it, so make them fix it for you. You may know a friend who claims they'll be able to fix it for you, but this will void the warranty, and you won't be able to get service when your laser disc reader eventually fails.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???

hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

Disk stuck inside PS3 ? Try this.

1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game.

My ps3 slim 160 gb will not show game disk in the menu and will now not open when i press the eject disk..was working well 1 hour ago please help asap:/

Does this problem occur with only one game disc? If so, there might be excessive scratching on this disc. If not, I am afraid your PS3 has a problem with the laser reading the discs. The laser can be replaced, tho. You shouldn't mess with it yourself, take it to a specialist.

I push power button, green light comes on but nothing happens

It sounds like your ps3 is not reading your disc. Maybe check the disk or try a lens cleaning disk? Could need to be sent in to sony.

PS3 80 gigs 3 yrs old immediately turns off when you turn it on Has a rented disk in it any idea how i might get the disk out.

if u want to get disc out of drive take a "thin pin" which is thin enough to go in a small hole in the front panel of the drive...

while pressing the eject button...push this pin inside and you can get the disc out..

Jammed cd drive

  • Touch the eject button on the PLAYSTATION 3 system front for 10 seconds or longer to force the disc to eject. After removing and before reinserting a disc into the PLAYSTATION 3, turn off the system, and then turn on the system again to resume use.
  • If the disc cannot be inserted, you may need to send your system in for service, please click on the link below.
