When i go on the game it always has a tick on a ps3 and the game doesnt load up and it says (80010516)

Most of the time this error is caused because you eject games while they are being used. To solve this error try the following in order, one by one, until your problem is solved.

1) Turn your console off using the switch in the back.

2) Delete all your messages.

3) Clean the disc for the game that is causing the error.

4) Upgrade your PS3 Firmware.

5) Turn "PS/PS2 upscaler" off.

If not of that works, your disc is broken.

I moved my PS3 from one area to another area. When I hooked it back up the TV read that the PS3 was not turned off properly. My wife told me that she turned it off. But was incorrectly turned off...

Sounds like there is something loose inside of the dvd drive especially if it wasn't accepting discs before.

If you are savy enough, go inside of the ps3 and remove the dvd drive. Then unscrew the screws to the dvd drive, when you open it up there will be a white plastic piece on top that holds the dvds in place so the drive can read it, this piece might just need to be realigned properly.

If its not that then check to see if there is any loose debris in there and remove it, then put the screws back on the drive, hook it back up to the ps3 then put the top cover back and try the drive again. Should be okay at this point.

PS3 yellow light and then turn red

Have you tried accessing the PS3's recovery mode?
How to Access Playstation Recovery Menu

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 promted to plug in your controller via usb and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.
  • Lastly You could try a full system restore WHICH WILL ERASE ALL YOUR HDD ITEMS so back them up if you wish
  • ****UPDATE***** You could also insert a Blu ray Lens cleaner disc into the disc drive and it will clean the PS3 lens either as a preventitive, or after the fact the drive stopped reading your discs because some people have reported their system reading discs again after this process.
  • You could always lastly take apart your system and try cleaning the lens with cotton swab and alcohol as a last effort scenario especially if your system is already out of warranty

There's now a technician on E-Bay who fixes this damn yellow light of death for out of warranty owners for $75.00 Just seach for Playstation 3 repair service on E-Bay

Playstation 3 not sensing disc

This is a common problem which is usually fixed by following these steps. Turn ON your PS3.
Go into the menu with all the scrolling menus
Go into system settings and make sure auto-play is on.
Press the PS button on your controller until you see the stand-by type menu. The screen has a dark filter on it and it should say "TURN OFF CONTROLLER, TURN OFF SYSTEM"
Insert disc

Happy Gaming!

you can transfear you information to a memory stick, or just taing off the hd and conect it to your computer to make a backup of your information, then you may restore your ps3 hd to see if that works, and if it doesnt, contact me!

My ps3 doesnt reading any discs

Do you have the receipt? If you do, return it to the retailer and ask if they can replace it (they are legally obliged to replace it where I live, I'm not too sure about Asia though, but you should try anyway).

Or try to phone Sony and ask them (their customer service number should be on their website).
