Your system needs a new laser. You should be under warranty. Call Sony 1-800-345-Sony.

My PS3 is playing some games but not all. It loaded the game and said installing hit the play button and said it cant recognize the game


Is the game that you are trying to play on a burnt or home made disk? If so, that may be your problem. If it is a regular store bought disk and it can't recognize the game then its a different situation and I would suggest purchasing a disk cleaner instead. There is probably dirt on sensor that needs to be cleaned.

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

Ps3 doesn t play dual layer dvd


junk32

If your drive will not read Dual Layer disks it is possible that in you have one of the first systems that released and it does not fully support the dual layer disks.

The the question I had for you is this just with burned disk or is this happening with actual moves. The reason why I ask is that I have found at least with my PS3 it will not read DVDs that are not region 1 only disks. I have alot of anime that are muliti-region or region 0 disks that will not play in my PS3.

Not recognizing the game


the laser lens that reads the disk is dirty, buy a dvd that comes with a little bottle of solution, this will clean the internal lens, other 2 possible reasons, the dvd disks/games are dirty or too many stratches, and or the dvd disk/game is damaged, you can buy a scratch remover kit from any local store.These are the simple most common problems seen with video games and dvd players.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.

remove your hard drive, power on teh console, power off the console, install the hard disk again and power again the console.
Hope this will make the system recognize the hard drive again.

PS3 won't recognize disks after update


You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........
