Re: ps3 not starting recognizing playing games

Hi this is happening to 1000's of ps3's around the world, including mine, so i phoned sony on saturday and they told me a patch was coming out on tuesday 8th, so tomorrow now, which was going to fix all game loading problems. normally they would send out a new(reconditioned) ps3 but because the patch was coming out on tuesday it would be quicker waiting for it. i'm on to my second ps3 now and the service i got when they swapped it last time was excellent. i phoned on a monday and my new ps3 came on wednesday two days later to swap for my faulty unit. that is excellent service if you compare it to xbox 360 service. hope this helps you.

My playstation 3 was repaired by Sony about 7 months ago. It's been working fine. My son hooked it up to his TV today to play the new NCAA Football 11. When I hooked it back to my TV I get absolutely...

First connect the PS3 to the TV you want it on. Then try resetting the display resolutions on the PS3 by holding the power button for a few seconds when the PS3 is off until you hear 3 beeps. That should re-detect the video and should solve your problem. Hope this helps!

My ps3 turns on and off ok, plays movies off the hard drive and will play ps3 games but has suddenly stopped playing movies ( dvd & blu ray ) it recognises the disc and goes to play it but the screen...

That is actually a poor conclusion. There are three different lasers, one for blu-ray, one DVD and one for CD games all in one holder inside. It certainly CAN be the laser. The description id the DVD/Blu-ray part is having focus problems. Contact Sony for a service center that can install a new drive (It needs to be calibrated on install)

Ps3 plays video games, not bluray movies or dvds

I would start with a firmware update (2.60) and also a full system restore. That should fix the problem. Let me know. I'm a PS3 expert!
