SOURCE: Blu Ray! Help!

it sounds more to me like you have the video settings for your tv wrong, and the blu-ray is trying to play in a resolution that your tv doesnt support. Go into your HDMI settings again, and go through each of the "checked" resolutions, test each one by one selecting each and then pressing i believe x to test. If a picture is displayed right away, the resolution is supported, if the screen goes black...wait 30 sec or press circle and it will return you back to the settings screen. Unchack any that diddnt give you a picture right away when you tested..then save and try....

SOURCE: PS3 freeze

hey guys i fixed this...

its over heatings the CPU and GPU

you need to disassemble it... http://www.llamma.com/PS3/repair/PS3_disassembly_tutorial.htm

then you need to replace the thermal compound with artic silver 5 as the stuff sony has put on is very dry and cracked, i have done this 4 7 of my mates PS3'S and they all work fine.

only do this if its out of warrently, if you removin the sticker on it, it shines through void

My ps3 wont load ps3 games


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa.

8 Steps to Fixing Any PS3 Issue


Note: If your PS3 is on, but you are looking at a blank screen, you PS3 may be in HD mode.

Games will not load ps3


here is one of the best answers that I ran across in the past about said issue.

this is what i would do :
First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or ur ps3, following that i would say u put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works, if it doesn't, then u are in serious trouble ( not really!). Get a USB Memory Stick( u know one of those little things u plug in a computer and can save all of ur stuff in) save ur important stuff. and then after that reset ur system settings, u can do that by:
Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings
after that try it and if it doesnt work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system, u can do that by:
Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.
it should be noted that all of ur stuff will be deleted, so i hope u saved all of ur game saves on that usb flash stcik thing.
if it doesnt work then do the following:
call sony:
SCEA Consumer Services
1-800-345-SONY (7669)
Monday - Saturday 6:00 AM - 8:00 PM PST
Sunday 7:00 - AM 6:30 PM PST
and tell them about ur problem, they will tell u to restore system settings or restore ps3 system, and thats what i told u, if it doesnt work, they will ask for ur adresss ( i hope u live in North America) and will ask u ur email, phone number and all that. After that they will send u a box( takes around 4-5 business days for the box to get to ur house, but it really matters where u live) and u put ur ps3 in that box, send it back, and then they will fix it, if they cant they will either send u a refurbished ps3 which is someone elses ps3 but dont worry its as good as brand new or if not, they will send u a new ps3. which will take sbout 4-5 business days, and again depends on where u live!

I would put in a game like warhawk, saint row 3... and they wont load and i hate that because i play it everyday i got tired of it yesterday i download the warhawk demo but they dont have 1 for saint row 3...


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. 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.

Ps3 wont load or play any games


If you can get to it without it freezing use the System Restore function under:

System->Settings>Restore PS3

If you can't get to it because of freezing you should put your hard drive into another PS3. It will see it as a new drive and prompt you to format it. Afterwards put it back into your PS3 and it will do the same thing again.

It doesn't matter which PS3 yours or the one you put your hard drive into, they're all the same as far as the process goes.

My ps3 wont load up games but it will movies, why?


I'm not sure what would cause this, but the first thing I would try is restoring your default settings. Go to SETTINGS, then SYSTEM SETTINGS, then RESTORE DEFAULT SETTINGS. Let me know if this doesn't do the trick, and we can try the next step. Good luck!
