SOURCE: my ps3 will only load cd & dvd it wont load games

It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.


If you're just out of warranty by a few days sometimes Sony will do a courtesy repair. It doesn't hurt to ask.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

The console starts, the playstation logos come on screen and then after goes blank.


Hi,
I see the system starts up but then it goes to a black screen.
Seems that the Firmware of your PS3 is corrupt, but before we go on ahead to that conclusion does this happen to all your games or does this happen only to one game cause if it only happens to one game possible the game is the one bused but if this happens to all of your games then it is the Firmware that needs to be fixed on the issue.
Or possible having the PS3 service would be a nice Idea to see what could have caused this problem, possible that one of the chips on the main board needs to be replaced for the fix.
Try this, do a power cycle, unplug he unit form the power outlet then press and hold down the power button for more than 10 seconds then plug the unit back in and see if it will work after the power cycle.
Have a nice day.

I have recently purchased a ps3, about 2/3 weeks ago, with it i brought call of duty 4. I brought the ps3 mainly for online gaming and cod4 works perfectly. I then purchased fifa 08 and tried to play...


The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.

I just bought a ps3


Apparently the PS3 version of Assassin's Creed freezes the PS3 but this only happens at certain points in the game where a load happens. I don't think this is the case for you since you're saying that it doesn't even load the game.

Secondly, what do you have it connected to? SDTV or HDTV? Sometimes if the signal selected is not supported by the TV, it will not show anything.

Lastly, I would try to perform a system update by connected it to the Internet. This will download firmware 2.00 and might be able to help aleviate your issues.

Good luck. BTW, not a bad time to pick up a PS3. some good games coming next year :)
