Man i got bad news for you your disk drive is bad happens to A LOT of people, if your good at taking things apart you can replace it yourself and find a replacement on ebay, or if you have a warranty take it back and get it replaced. Or just call sony up and get it sent in but man that just takes so long. good luck man

Put a game disc into ps3 grinding noise wont show game icon


Make sure that you do not have the PS3 on it's side. Lay it flat. Insert a MOVIE DVD first and see if it will recognize the disc.
If you continue to hear a grinding sound when the ps3 is laying down that could only mean one thing, you need a replacement drive.

Dont forget to Always update your Playstation to the newest firmware.

Hi all my problem is after 20 minutes the screens goes blue ps3 shuts down seems like overheating


If the fan doesn't change in RPM (listen to the sound of the fan). If the RPM don't change then you probably need to do a system restore. Make sure to back up your system so you Don't loose everything. If it is the fan they are very easy to replace, I can help with that. Let me know.

My play station doesn't recognize dvds or games I put them in and no icon comes on and it doesn't paly


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:

When playing Red Dead Redemption the game freezes


If a game freezes, then the problem is usually due to the PS3 overheating. The PS3 needs good airflow through the vents so make sure that you don't put it in a corner or in a place where the hot air won't linger around for long like near a window. Also, don't play for too long; give your PS3 a break every once in a while (1 minute breaks don't count) :)

Since the network has been reset I logged on changed my password and updated system now when i go on tomy system i have new icons such *** trophies and game data but no game icon. my system is not reading...


You should do a quick reformat by going to your settings on the PS3, Don't do the big reformat that takes hours, just do the quick one. If that doesn't work then you might need to do the big reformat of the HDD.

Hope I helped

Hi..every ps3 game that i insert too play, it dosnt seems to be apairing up on the main menu (normaly after loading, the disc icon pops up and allows you to start game, but noting). but it seems to play...


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.
