    same thing happened to mine, theres a way to repair it yourself but its very hard. If i was you, i'd get it replaced. if you still want to keep your save progress, save it to a memory stick then transfer it to your new ps3. (not sure if the trophies go with it, sorry)

My PS3 can't only PS2 games!!! 80028F17

Not all PS3s are able to play PS2 games - they started removing that functionality when they came out with the 60GB model. So if you have a relatively new PS3 (A year old or so), that's likely the reason.

PS3 Error message...

This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.

Erroe code 80010514

Hi mastergamer.

Someone else asked it here too:

The best diagnosis for now according to the link I posted in the above URL is that the drive has failed to function correctly ( maybe a bad laser or something) and needs to be sent in for repair.)
