Error 80010514 on Ps3


It could be 2 things.

1. You need to clean your lens.
2. Your lens is dead, and you would need to get it replaced.

My ps3 console will not read my games or movies and try a disc cleaner & nothing


The problem is not normally with the discs itself but with the lens coming away from where it needs to be.
You just need to readjust the lens that sounds difficult but really it is not too tough.
Check out this PS3 Repair blog and get the fix you need.

PS3 - Unable to read disc


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem


Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.


Thank you !!

My ps3 won't read my games but reads my dvds


The Blu-Ray laser might need to be cleaned. Use a laser cleaning disc to clean it. Also, make sure the disc are clean and scratch-free. If this all fails, you might need to get the PS3 repaired.

Playstation 3 freezes up while playing any game


This does typically sound like an chip overheating. If you have checked your discs and they are in good condition with no scratches then is would suggest that there is a graphics chip error due to being faulty or overheating. My advice is to take your PS3 to your local repair agent to be assessed correctly. Has the PS3 been chipped to play pirated games. This could have caused an issue with your PS3 as well.
If you do now want to spend money sending the PS3 into an authorised repair agent then my advice is.
1. Take your machine to your local games store and test one of thier new games on the system to confirm it is a PS3 error and not a disc error.
2. Alternatively you could hire a disc however some rental stores do not take good care of their discs and it we want to establish that the issue is console related first.
3. If the same problem occurs again then you will need to take the console to the authorised repair agent to get assessed correctly.
4. If the issue appears to be related to scratches on the discs then you will need to take them to your local rental store to have them cleaned or resurfaced.

Game discs often have much larger quantiies of data to transfer and this is why it may appear confusing as your console can still play movies ok. If there are scratches on the surface of the discs then for the same reasons as mentioned above the movies will play as there is less data passing and therefore scratches will be effecting less data than on a typical games disc.
If you have any other questions please leave a message for me and I hope this information has been helpfull.
Regards
John

Ps3 games wont work on my ps3.. but plays ps2 games and dvds play...


How much free memory does your Ps3 have? Are the games used or scratched?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You need a certain amount of memory to play ps3 games. Scratched up games can't be read.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you put the disc on the right side? Lay the ps3 down and the ps3 game disc picture should be facing up.

Ps3 will not read the discs


You might want to go somewhere that works on game systems and get the disk reading laser checked and make sure it is clean and also make sure the game disks are clean and not scratched.
