Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

My PS3 Games wont show up in the games list

Ok heres my problem, when I was playing a game the soundeffects went out so I thought I'd finish the chapter of where I was and reset but when I did finish the chapter it froze on the loading screen so I pressed the PS button and quit game, then it froze on a black screen for ages so I pressed eject on the PS3 and it reset but the disc didnt come out so I pressed it again and it came out but now I cant play discs anymore because when I put a disc in the loading indicator comes up in the right hand top corner but the play disc option doesnt and then it just loads and nothing happens. I've tried all my game discs so I know the problems with the PS3.

    when i was playing a game, it was loading for a while then i figured out that it froze. so i turned off the game and restarted it back up. Now every cd that I put into it, doesnt show up any more.

    Same here, wheather I try playing MGS4, GTAIV, Oblivion or Guitar Hero, the game just doesn't show up. Or it shows up once, freezes, and doesnt show for long time.

Return under warranty.
the blu ray laser will have been slightly overheated and as a result will need to be replaced.

Take a canister that has building pressure but only air inside. Blow it all over the system. I donnt know why, but it works.

60GB PS3 will play PS1 and PS3 games but not PS2.

this is a problem with some ps3's especialy the high GB ones like mine. they made it so most if not all of the ps2 games cannot be played to cut down on price and to leave room for all the memory. so you can still play ps1's but you cant play ps2's. sorry
