Thats exactly what the problem is, if its under warranty send it in . it could also be the blue ray disc driver. send it in and save your money for more games. that is if its under warranty. good luck

Well that error means something is wrong with the laser. I had the same problem with another ps3 and when i replaced the laser it started working again. You can find the laser for sale on a video game repair website for about 60$. Dont try this unless you have some tecnical background though as this can be a bit tricky.

It sounds like the laser in your blu-ray drive is dead. You will need to purchase a replacement diode ( or drive ) and replace it yourself, this usually costs around $70. Or, you can pay $150 and Sony will replace it for you.

Playstation 3 error code (80010514) what does this mean


If your PS3 is reading DVD's and CD's, but NOT any type of BLUE-RAY media.....95% sure it's a faulty laser. The Backwards compatible units are equipped with a RED laser for DVD and CD reading. The Blue Ray Diodes are faulty..especially in the earlier production models. This was due to the shortage of parts during production, so SONY out sourced from multiple producers of BR laser units.

My 80gb , 4 usb, Backwards combatibility unit started doing this. The game froze, system became unresponsive, wouldn't show the the Disc ICON in the XMB for PS3 games. When the games did load they would play for a few mins then freeze, or error code 80010514 would appear.

I got the laser replaced by a reputable repairman, now the system works without fault. It's been running for hours with no problems.

Get the lens replaced by either SONY or someone who knows what they are doing....also give your PS3 a good dusting everyday. When the Laser unit gets too hot the diodes malfuction and eventually fail.

This has been a big problem with the PS3 early systems. My conclustion is that heat dissapation due to dust and firmware updates to squeeze performance which usually means more heat has caused Blue ray to malfunction since it is a very tight tolerance device but the symptoms only just start there.

Call tech support and KEEP ON THEM...they offer a new PS3 slim for a significant discount.

Due to recent PSN outage only affecting PS3 fatty's then I'm suspect on that architecture.

There are significant trade-off like losing backward compatibility to PS2 games, etc. so choose wisely.

Might try compressed air to free accumulated dust but careful with static and/or physical damage if too much force, etc.

My ps3 quit playing ps3 games. It would play ps2


you had a software error, when you reset the system it re installed all the software. you got lucky had one that did that i reformated the hdd and still nothing put a disc in and it would just continuosly read the disc and nothing would ever come of it. the first set of PS3's had inferier blue ray drives and they tend to crash on the hardware end. if this happens sony has a refurb program for $150 you can send yours in and get another back that is refurbed...

Return under warranty, ps3 uses a high powered blu ray laser that can melt the lens after extensive use, sony is working on a fix and will repair this for you for free unless you have opened the case.

Motorstorm 80010514 erro


your error means this according to what I could find out : 80010514 - Disc error detected. Retrying operation. Do your other games work. If so, then you may have a bad game disc. Or it may be scratched or dirty. If your other discs work, then I would try this game on someone elses unit, or check it for dirt/fingerprints. If that doesnt work, you could try a cd lens cleaner disc..it may help.
