Re: game

A patch is coming out the 8th of jan, this tuesday to fix it i spoke to sony yesterday and they assured me it would fix it, and thats why they didn't send out a new unit. wait till tuesday, download patch and hopefully this will sort it. if not return it to where you got it from or phone sony as it has 1 year warranty. and their service is very good just make sure you back up game saves and other data. hope this helps you

If the two disk in question work just fine on another playstation, then you narrowed down the problem to your playstation. You have a couple of options at this point.

I would recommend you try cleaning the playstation. The link below will go over details on how to resolve disk read errors.

Alternatively, you may have a damaged internal component. You might have a local repair guy you can contact or contact Sony directly for repairs. This is unlikely, as other games work just fine, yes?

PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error

The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

When i updated my PS3 for the new Call of Duty it stopped reading the disks. It worked fine b4 the upload but now it wont play any of d games i have. Whats d craic, how do i sort this

It might just be coincidence that your blu-ray drive has packed up at the same time as the update. Ring up Sony and tell them this and you could get a new console for free if your in the warranty.

Ps3 not reading any disc

what you have to do is turn it on and go on to settings. then format the system and wait for it to reset then start it up again and try it. (back up your info first!)
if that doesnt work ring sony and state the problem they should send you a new or refurbished ps3. but you'll need it in warrenty.

Ps3 wont read games discs

ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.
