    game will not load. You will see the loading icon on the top right of the screen for few seconds and then nothing happens. I called Sony, I have to pay $150 to get this issue fixed. This is the second time I had to send this piece of **** back to sony in 14 months!!! Never again buying Sony

This a new patch that has fried some of the system. I work for sony and this has become a big problen. it is done when both the american edition of GTA4 and COD 4 are played after each other due to limitation factors. This however is easily fixed by getting a screw driver and flickintg a reset switch that is in the CD tray. This is a genuine method and is what is done at the replacment sector in sony.

All you need to do is fix the laser and it is not as tough as you may think.

You can send it in and they will do it for you or you can fix it at home with a good repair guide

My playstation loads dvds and playstation 2 games but when i put a playsation 3 game in the game disc icon doesnt show so i cant click it to start my game

Try different ps3 games and if your system doesn't load any of them then that means the laser is bad and would need to be replaced. You can also just replace the dvd drive as well and you buy either the laser or the whole drive off of Ebay.

I put the disc in the player it goes in but it does not load the game

You know what, I think your game is scratched and that is why it wont play it. Or try cleaning the inside of your playstation (the part where the game goes in) ;)

Game is not coming on to play?

After you insert a game, go to the [Game] menu and select the disc to start it up. It won't auto-load the game if you are on the XMB.

Suddenly stop playing games and dvds

Although there is several possibilities, check the lens, its inside the tray, it may be dirty.
