Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My PS3 won't load games or movies. when a disk is inserted the blue and green lights are on steady which is a normal indication. however, the disk recognition icon does not appear under either the video or game icons in the main system menu. i've had the system for 2 1/2 years with no problems.

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

Playstation 3 cut off mid play and won't come back on have steady red light!When you hit the power it goes green blue yellow then flashing red!


Call Sony. They will fix it for you, no problem. They will ship you a "Coffin" to send the PS3 back, and if it can not be fixed, they will replace it with a refurbished one.

The PS3 will not recognize games or movies. You load it and it will not show in up in the menu of options. It powers and shows the normal menu but does not recognize games or dvds regular or blue ray.

Ps3 won't play my ps3 disks or movies


Usually that means that the BlueRay drive is bad. You can replace the laser module to take care of it. THey are available on eb@y for $70 or so. Or you could return it to teh store, or send it out to Sony.

Ps3 not reading any disks


Normally ps1-ps2-ps3 has Red laser beam lens system. So it cannot read Blue ray disks. its not possible until you change it lens system. there are some commericially available Blue laser lens system. Buy one and fix it with authorised service personnel. all the best
