Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
This is a very common problem with the PS3 and iscaused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioningand can no longer read the game disk properly.
The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists ofeither a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending onwhich pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for readingordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.
The symptoms you describe are typical of a failureof one of these lasers i.e the bluray laser

It SHOULD remember your preferences and you shouldn't have to select optical audio output every time you turn on your PS3; something is definitely wrong there to start with... As for a solution? I can only suggest checking that all your other equipment is functioning correctly before having to conclude that your PS3 is having some problems.

I posted to your problem with a similar one. I was able to get my PS3 to work by:
1.) Powering down both the PS3 and ViewSonic LCD
2.) Unplugging the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
3.) Waiting at least 10 or more seconds
4.) Plugging in the power cables to both PS3 and LCD
5.) Turning on the ViewSonic LCD
6.) Turning on the PS3 and holding down the power button until the beep
After this sequence I heard the bootup audio and the menu appeared on the screen- which detected the HDMI connection to my LCD.
Very odd.. I've had my PS3 in the same place for months and just today this happened.
I wanted to post my success. Best of luck!
