The PS3 may not be able to read the disc properly because of the sensor inside. take it to get cleaned if all else fails send it back to sony and have them fix it.

WHen I turn on my PSP I get a yellow screen/Menu. It has Settings, Camera, Music, Video etc. How do I exit this to play a game?


This is the XMB its the main menu of the system. Games will be located under the Controller Icon. To play games insert a UMD, or if a game is downloaded and saved on the memory card, go through the icons under Controller icon. A disk icon will appear and show a preview screen to the game, press X to start the game.

I put in a disk and it does not read the disk. The blue light goes out immediately after inserting then nothing


Sounds like the DVD drive inside of your Wii may have failed.

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Wii including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Wii going again!

Do you have your DS set on Auto Mode, if so the DS will automatically start up any games that are inserted.

Deselecting Auto Mode:
If it's on Auto Mode, any games are automatically started. To deselect auto mode you just need to start up your DS without any games in either of the game slots, then it'll go to the DS screen, since no games are in for now this screen is useless right?

To select Manual Mode ( where it goes to the selection screen ) as your preffered setup, you'll see a small icon of what resembles a DS at the bottom of the menu screen. Remeber your games are still not inserted at this point yet. Use the directional pad to select the mini icon, or you can tap it twice. Tapping it proves more difficult though due to it's position. Once selected a toolbar of four options will appear, tap on the one displaying a wrench. From that box three other options should appear, tap on the one shown as an arrow pointing halfway through a rectangle (start up settings) you want to select Manul Mode. Wait a few seconds for the DS settings to save then you can turn it off. Now you'll be able to see the selection screen with your games inserted.

Summary of all that:
  1. remove any inserted games
  2. turn on to see the menu screen
  3. select the mini DS icon at screen's bottom
  4. when the four pictures appear, tap on the one of a "wrench"
  5. when three more pictures appear tap on the one of an arrow pointing half way through the rectangle
  6. two options appear, select manual mode.
I really hope thats what you meant ^_^ If it wasn't, ask one of the experts.

you say it wont turn back on but it has power.
is the light red ( stand by )
or do you have green and blue lights
Did it fall????
try cleaning the disk and the lens
you can also run the auto diagnosis..

HERE'S HOW
Auto-Diagnosis (PlayStation 2 system) 1. Turn on the system without a disc inside. 2. Once at the Main Menu, press the triangle button to enter the Version Information Screen. 3. Highlight the "Console" option, and then press the triangle button again. 4. Next, press the X button, highlight "On", and then press the X button once more. 5. Now press the circle button twice to return to the Main Menu. 6. Press the eject button on the front of the console, and insert a disc. 7. Now close the disc tray, but DO NOT reset the system. 8. Highlight the Browser option from the Main Menu, and then press the X button. 9. In the Browser, an icon of the disc should appear on the screen. Highlight this icon, and then press the X button to read the disc. 10. If the auto-diagnosis is successful, the disc should load properly at this point. NOTE: The auto-diagnosis feature will return to "Off" the next time a disc is inserted.
