The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.
The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:
Tries tv unplug replug it back like an hour later for a tv resetting itself.The HDMI (2) port might be working again.Just used the PS3 game system only conennected it in the different tv ports of for the HDMIS ports provided by the tv.U know this wright?The PS3 game system play all this funsctions.CD-Audio only,DVD movies and old PS1 games,some PS3 system may,may not support and play old PS2 games,All Blu Ray movies and All PS3 Blu Ray games.
The laser in the dvd drive requires different strengths to read different discs. If its reading movies and not games then the laser is starting to go bad in it. You can either replace the laser if your tech save to open up the ps3 and opening up the dvd drive, or you can just get another drive to put in there. Either one you can get from Ebay fairly cheap.
Laser has to be bad then if its not reading brand new games or dvds. To verify this though get a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there is no specs of dirt or dust on the laser.
Now try the games and dvds again and if its still happening then the laser needs to be replaced and you can get them fairly cheap off of Ebay.
Ok do not worry this may mean two things crached hard drive or a corrupted hard drive all you have to do is turn it on but let the red ligth be on turn it on do not remove your finger from the button until it go's off again turn it on again keep your finger until it makes a sound but still do not remover your finger untill it makes two sounds after eachouther take your finger of fast nou a screen will apear say restore sestem untill your ps3 works again it take 1-4 trys and if nothing happens you must format it.HOPE I WAS USEFULL PLZZ RATE ME AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELS EMAIL ME TO firstname.lastname@example.org I DO PS1,2,3,DVD PLAYERS AND PC sorry for my spelling i am only 13 and i Afrikaans BUT PLZZZ RATE ME.thanks
First of all, try playing all of your games and see if its just one disk or your ps3, following that I would say you put in a blu-ray movie and check if that works. If it doesn't, get a USB memory stick and save all your important data. After that, reset your system settings.
You can do that by:
Settings> System Settings> Restore System Settings
After that try it and if it doesn't work, go again to system settings but this time around, go to restore ps3 system.
You can do that by:
Settings> Sysem Settings> Restore PS3 System.
It should be noted that all of your stuff will be deleted, so I hope you saved all of your game saves on that usb flash disk.
ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a
job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up
explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally
reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.
