Hi! Might be an optical drive problem. The lens may be dirty thats why its not reading discs. YOu may have it cleaned or calibrated if necessary and I believe that you'll be good after performing these procedures. There wont be any problem with the hard drive since its working on internet and downloads. HOpe this helps and have a good one!

When I start loading a game or video the playstation sayds video or game can not be played (error 8002997F)


Hi,

This error is related to an issue reading the BluRay Disc, you might try the following:

  1. Ensure that the latest system software update is installed on your PlayStation 3 system.
  2. Check the disc for scratches and dirt.
  3. Check that the disc is compatible with your PlayStation 3 system.
  4. Make sure that this is not only happening with one specific game, if so, the disc might be the issue.
  5. Try the disc in another PS3 system if you have one available to discard the possibility of a faulty disc.
Hope this helps.

PlayStation 3 system cannot read the disc

Do not read the disc


Hello,

The problem is that the lens of your ps3 is either dirty or weak that it can no longer read any disc, i advice that you get a lens cleaner to clean the lens of your game, if after cleaning, problem persist, replace the lens on your ps3 so that your ps3 can continue to function as it use to function before.

Replace the lens on your ps3 and you will see that it will start reading discs.
You can also try the below procedure,

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.

Take care.

I'm playing modern warfare 2 and when i try online against other people and find a game it says '' testing matches: 0.0% - 0/24 good games... 24 potential games found'' and then it doesn't load any players...


I don't know how far the PS3 Network is with resolving their current issue, but it's effecting pretty much every PS3 (except slim's) connected to the internet. Some players are losing trophies, some are losing in-game data, and some lose all functionality of their PS3's. Google PS3 Network Issue to read the most current updates. Please adhere to the warnings and limit PS3 usage until the problem is fully resolved. It has something to do with the clock functions.

Please let me know if i've helped you out.

respectfully,

Don

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
