I found this on Gamespot.

"happened to me with a flawed Spider man Blu-ray, just hold the console on the side, press eject then shake it, it should go out
edit : put it vertical, lift it with your left hand fully grabbing it on the bottom, and grab it with the right hand so that you can use your thumb to press eject ; when the crackling eject sound begins, shake the ps3 with the top a little in direction of the ground
never put the disc that caused it in the PS3 again" - TheTenth10

My ps3 won't play my disk-based games

This sounds a similar problem what I had. 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. Also downloaded games were working ok.

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.

Dns error for ps3

O.K. I had just had that little problem out of nowhere 2 days ago! First off Reboot the Modem, then the Router. When they are done turn on the PS3. In the PS3 Menu go to the 2nd Row from the Left and Down to Network Settings. Choose your setup Wired or Wireless. Choose DHCP and AUTO all the way through. If you are Wireless you will need your CODE! When done wait a minute then run the Network test right below in the Menu. You should be Good! This should reset your Network Automatically!

Ps3 wont show or load games

If you originally set up the PS3 with A,V cables it won't work on HDMI even if you set it up to and visa versa. There is a work around but you will have to call tech support. Here is a link at Sony's PS3 tech support that may help also.
