This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the drive with a cue tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the laser. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty with this site: https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma.htm?_flowExecutionKey=_cA4319E97-4A26-7C4E-E978-1D8A9E9C7B0F_kF495E5B8-B57E-129B-FF8B-E7B02FC2519B

Ps vita Lego Mega Pack


C1-2858-3 is a "Bad Plug-In" Error (which is a programming files the game uses to be able to display correctly on your PSV) You have to disable one of them because obviously it is not working correctly. This is how. (Reset your Vita first) then:

1.click on your game
2.now start your game, but while it is loading in the initial game loading screen hold R (Right Trigger)
3.this will bring up your recovery screen (text only).
4. go to "Plug-Ins" section, click on it, find the plug-in that is "enabled" and disable it by clicking on it.
5.now go back out all the way, and re-start your game. it should work now.

How to jailbreak your ps3 (backup and play homebrew games)


How to jailbreak PS3(PlayStation 3)? chips available at www.ndsireland.webs.com

Follow the complete step by step guide posted below to jailbreak your PlayStation 3 to enable you to create backups of original discs.
Pre-requisites are as follows:
* Any (FAT or SLIM) PlayStation 3 Console running firmware 3.41 or above.
* PS Jailbreak USB Modchip.
* An external USB drive formatted to FAT32 with the "Backup Manager" file on it which you can download from here.
* Original disc of any PS3 game which you want to backup.
Step 1: Power off your console and make sure that there isn't any disc in the Blu-ray drive.
For the SLIM Model: Remove the power chord before plugging in the USB.
For the FAT model: Turn off the power switch found at the backside of the console.

Step 2: Now insert the USB based PS Jailbreak Modchip to any USB port of your choice on the console. Once the USB is in place, Power ON the console and immediately press the "Eject" button. There should now be two LEDs turned-on on the USB as the console is loading.
If the LED light on the USB turns green, you are good to go as the PS Jailbreak has been successfully loaded.
If the LED turns red, then it means that the PS Jailbreak Modchip didn't load successfully. This usually happens when the Power and Eject button sequence wasn't performed properly. Start from Step 1 again if you end up having the red light.
Step 3: Once the console has finished booting up with the PS Jailbreak Modchip, plug-in the external USB storage device which has the "Backup Manager" setup to the console's USB port.
Step 4: Now navigate to the "Game Menu" and select the option "Install Package Files" and then select "manager.pkg" file. This will basically install the "Backup Manager" application that you download earlier to your hard drive.
Step 5: When the "manager.pkg" file is done loading, scroll all the way down in the "Game Menu" and there you should see a new application called "Backup Manager", run it.
Step 6: Now we're in the Backup Manager app. Insert the game in the console's optical drive which you want to backup. Press "O" and you will be asked where to make the backup, on the internal HDD or the external storage source connected via USB. This process is further elaborated by the following screenshots.
Step 7: In order to play a game via the backup you just made, insert any original game disc into your console (To emulate the loading process), run "Backup Manager" in the "Game Menu". Press "X" to play the selected backup game.
Step 8: Now you will be taken back to the main menu. In the "Game Menu" you will see the game which you have backed up. Now you can select the game, and run it without having the disc in the console's drive.
Oh and you must make sure that the PS Jailbreak USB Modchip is connected to your console at all the times when you are playing the games via backups.

Little Big Planet loading Issue


If he did an update that was loaded on the game it could have been an old one and cause a problem. Get him to try and do a system update via internet or go on a computer and go to the Playstation website and download it to a flashdrive. Hope this helps
