My Ps3 wont start my game!

When i start my Warhawk game it just says "Loading...". I had it loading for about 1 hour and it still didn't start. Then i went back to the shop i bought it from and got a new one but still no action. My internet is working and my other games are working, could it be a PlayStation problem?

Re: My Ps3 wont start my game!

If all of your other games are working then it's probably just a software update for that game. If you are hooked up to the internet via your PS3 it should download the update automatically, but it may not do it unless the game is in the machine. Make sure that your interent connection is good to the PS3, slide the game in and leave it for a while. Maybe a couple of hours and then reset and try game again. Depending on your connection updates could take anywhere from 10mins to over an hour. Sometimes the server will time out too if the update it taking too long. Also, change your PS3 auto start game setting to off, once you do this you will have to slect the game from your PS3 menu to access it and play it. If you have a friend with a PS3 or go the store where you bought it and see if they have the same problem with the game, it could just be bad batch of discs. In that case buy it at another store.

Ps3 restoring problem

Does it give you an option to start without restore? Another option is to unplug it completely for 30 seconds. Mine sometimes does this too, but shutting it off almost always works

I would put in a game like warhawk, saint row 3... and they wont load and i hate that because i play it everyday i got tired of it yesterday i download the warhawk demo but they dont have 1 for saint row 3...

I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd

How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.
