If the unit is not reading any disks, then yes, return it. Laser could be damaged.

Ps3 hard disk file is corrupted


This problem always happen when you switch off your console while it is saving data or reading data from the HDD, so your HDD file system damaged, in order to solve this problem you need an external SATA 2.5 hard disk case, extract your PS3 hard drive and insert it in the SATA 2.5 case, plug your hard dist to a computer, you will find that the whale hard disk is unallocated, so format it with FAT32 or NTFS using your computer, after that return your hard disk to your PS3 console, now, your PS3 console will recognize it, and it will ask you to format it, say YES!!... congratulation your PS3 console is working now

BUT REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA IN THE HARD DISK INCLUDING YOUR SAVES, IMAGES, MOVIES AND ALL YOUR STUFF

Bought final fantasy XIII for my ps3 and the game keeps freezing


It might be something wrong with the system. You should get that checked out. If it's not the system, i'm sorry, but you're just a very unfortunate person.

Ps3 start error 80010514


Hi

Hi

This ia a known error with the ps3 and unfortunately is not that easy to fix. Sony simply have the following to say about this error

"Error 80010514 - Issue reading Disks"

If this error is showing on more than one disk then the problem lies in the blueray drive itself which has become faulty. Sony are advising that these ps3's which are showing this persistant error need to be returned for service. Expected cost is around $150 if your unit is outside warranty.

For information on how to return your unit see this link

The disk drive laser is probably bad. You most likely have to return it. Try it with a brand new disk to check if it still works. If it doesn't return it
