Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Open Question

Hi there recently my ps3 has not been reading my discs. It has been either coming up with an error code (800 series) loading the game in but only producing a blank screen (black) or freezing why loading the main menu in game. At first i thought it was one game now its all of them, could you help me at all or suggest what i could do. Thank you

SOURCE: PS3 having trouble reading game discs!!!

hey guys. the problem is that the blue ray reader is some how broken and it won't work. mine kept freezing during games like after 3 mins. and it wouldnt read any more discs for that day. you need to change the blue ray reader and that costs about 175$. thats alot of money and its probably not worth it.

SOURCE: PS3 Main Menu doesnt load.

Hello!
The biggest problem that causes this is a bad hard drive. As it powers up the PS3 tries to pull info from the hard drive. If it is internally damaged then the whole system will stop booting. I have run into this many times. A new hard drive solves the problem 9 out of 10 times.
BTW, the hard drive is produced by Seagate, not Sony. My motto is...."if it was made by a human, it will break!"

I hope this helps. Good luck to all of you!!

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.

Ps3 error code 80010514 and wont read the disc


Hi, if your PS3 is reading DVD's and CD's, but NOT any type of BLUE-RAY media.....95% sure it's a faulty laser. The Backwards compatible units are equipped with a RED laser for DVD and CD reading. The Blue Ray Diodes are faulty..especially in the earlier production models. This was due to the shortage of parts during production, so SONY out sourced from multiple producers of BR laser units.

My 80gb , 4 usb, Backwards combatibility unit started doing this. The game froze, system became unresponsive, wouldn't show the the Disc ICON in the XMB for PS3 games. When the games did load they would play for a few mins then freeze, or error code 80010514 would appear.

I got the laser replaced by a reputable repairman, now the system works without fault. It's been running for hours with no problems.

Get the lens replaced by either SONY or someone who knows what they are doing....also give your PS3 a good dusting everyday. When the Laser unit gets too hot the diodes malfunction and eventually fail.

Take care

My ps3 refuse sometime to load my ps3 discs.


I have the same problem, it's error 80010514.  An error occurred during start up operation.  That's what you would see on your screen if the disc would even get read.  Your ps3 is screwed.  Call 1-800-345-sony and talk to them.  They will tell you that you need to send it in and if your 1 year warranty is up you have to pay $150.  I'm waiting for them to send the coffin to send my ps3 back in

Will not load disc


Unfortunately this is not a new issue to me.

Recently alot of PS3 owners have witnessed the gradual decline in performance of their Blue Ray drives I recommend immediately contacting sony in regards to a replacement console.


Good Luck.

My PS3 doesn't read any disc


Sounds like a faulty/dirty/bad laser. Call sony 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
ask them what they can do! Normally its at least 168$ charge to get your ps3 back in order unless you are willing to open it up yourself.. if so let me know I can help you find parts and help you fix it.. parts are not to expensive but in the long run it may be better to either sell it as broke or send it in!

I do buy broken ps3's and can get you a deal on used or new systems!
