I have a Sega Saturn with about 15 years. I unboxed it and started to play my games. Everything worked fine until Resident Evil 1. I start the game (everything fine, menu fine, options fine, intro movie...

It sounds like its definitely something wrong with the system. There must be something about this game that the system is having trouble reading correctly. I don't see there being much of a fix for this unless maybe you brought it in to a local game shop and had let look at it.

Try turning up your CPU Clock game to 333/166. To do this, try the following;
1. Enter into XMB Menu by pressing "select" button while in main screen. 2. Scroll down to CPU Clock Game (second from top) and press scroll right until the numeric value in the right shows 333/166.
Try playing your game again. This should solve it.
Hope this helps.

My ps3 will play disk but i have no home start up screen. it appears black although you can hear the sounds as you scroll through the menu

First thing you should try is a manual video reset.

While the PS3 is off (red led) hold down the power button until you hear the SECOND beep, QUICKLY release.

That will reset the video.

Let me know if that works.

Ps3 won't play read my games

I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

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

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Psp ( i cant get games to play )

Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.
