    I started getting this error code 80010514 every time I tried to play a game, I reseted the console to the original settings but still gives me the same reading. I can't play any game now. I'm thinking taking it back to sony to get a new one if I can't get a solution for this.

    We are having the same problem with our ps3. The system isn't overheating and the OS seems to be fine, but it won't play movies, games, or nothing.

    sometimes the disc icon shows up when i play a game on my ps3, but it freezes in the middle of the gameplay after five minutes, i don't know whether it is troubleshooting or overheating, or what is causing the problem. Please reply.

    The game froze and would not restart. So we shut down everything and did a reboot, and inserted a different game to no avail. Main menu comes up with no problem and it looks like all other functions work fine.


    Thanks

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

Seems to me you ether got a bad drive in this unit or you got scratched or dirty disc. Normally you would try a blue ray disc in this to see if it works if it doesn ot work you might have a issue with your drive.

MY PS3 DOSENT READ MY GAMES


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Ps3 wont read games discs


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.

2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
