    i am having the same problem with my ps3. it started after i updated to 3.10, which i think is the culprit. it was working fine before the update because it kicked me offline to make me update. i started the update and went to bed. next day, i can start a game or BR disc but it only runs for less than 10 minutes and then it freezes and doesn't read anything. i have restored default settings as suggested by PS customer service. still nothing changed. the only other thing they suggested was sending it in for service plus $150 bill. so maybe updating could be the reason, but not according to sony. idk

SOURCE: screen froze,now wont read any discs

if your system is only 5 weeks old PS3 factory warranty covers all defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from purchase date. there are some inclusions and exclusions which can be accessed at http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3/Warranties
but if you have any implied warranties from the store you purchased it at you should hit them up first to see what they'll do for you

SOURCE: My PS3 does not read any disc since last week

My PS3 did the same thing this past Monday. I called PS3 toll free number and they took my information and is sending me a prepaid box to ship my console back to SONY Corp. so they can fix it. No cost if it's under warranty(there are exceptions to this though). It will take up to 10 business days to get back once they receive the console.

In the meantime, I went and bought a refurbished PS3 40GB to hold me over. Still waiting for the prepaid box to arrive. I must be crazy to buy another PS3 to hold me over until mine is fixed but I'm going to return the other one once i get my other one back. I have 30 days.

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

Uncharted 2 only game that shuts down my 60 GB PS3


It seemed as if you were getting the symptoms of the "blinking red light of doom" but luckily you didn't.And VERY VERY good thinking on the back up (i never thought of it and i almost lost all my data).
I hope your new hdd runs a 5400rpm and NOT 7200rpm.
Facts:
1. A 7200rpm hdd will make system over-heat.

2. System run hotter (and in most cases of red light of doom) are HIGH graphics games such as MW2 & UNCHARTED 2.

3. Systems will last longer and cooler with an external fan that runs off its on power from a power outlet(not run off the power of the ps3!!!!)

I hope I have helped and please feel free to ask any questions GOOO UNCHARTED 2!!

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,
