Re: disc loading

Its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. i'm getting my new one tomorrow. upset it broke but sony's replacement service is very good.

My ps3 wont load any games

Check all of your settings and make sure everything is configured properly. If you made any changes to you system configuration just before this issue happened just change back to previous config and see what happens.
If everything is correct, then, unfortunately cleaning the lens is not going to help very much. This is similar to the "disc read error" on the boxy ps2. The best thing for you to do is to call sony and tell them that your blu-ray player is not working you can only read regular dvds. It has happened to a few people that I know and they were still under warranty and it was replaced. If this happens to be a common issue then maybe Sony will still replace it outside of warranty. Never know, but it is always worth a shot.

My ps3 system recently stopped reading any discs

i have got the same problem, you can either get a new blue ray lens and fit it yourself or give sony a ring and they will change your console for you.

My 60 GB PS3 wont run PS2 games

Actually only 60GB PS3s supports PS2 games. But It requires particular firmware. In first instance try updating your system, then dissable the disc autoload function, insert PS2 game, and look at the game section if your soft will recognise it. If yes just try to play

Good luck
