Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Not reading Games

All of a sudden, my system is having trouble reading the games I have. It says trouble starting game operation. Then if the game does start, it freezes during auto save or regular save moments. I have had these games and have been playing these games up until about a week ago when the problem started. There has been no traumatic accidents or anything like that. It just simply wont play my games any more.

Nintendo wii message reads: error occured remove disc turn off console check operations manual for information! on 2 new games


Hi,

Some older Wii units also have trouble with Dual Layer Discs, which pack more info onto a disk like Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Metroid Prime. If your Wii is having trouble reading a dual layer disc you can try Nintendo's Wii lens cleaning kit. the other resolution for this is to change the laser on the system but it will cost you for that. Try to clean the lens first it might read the new disk.

Thanks for using Fixya.

It's most likely the games are not in readable/operational condition. It won't be able to read the disk and will act like there is nothing there if it can't read the data.

My ps3 wont read some of my games


Well, the problem that you are having may well be the result of your "Blu-Ray Diode" being on its way out.
I repair PS3 systems; as a matter of fact, I just repaired a unit that displayed symtoms of what you describe and what I previously mentioned.
If you are able to play only older games (ex: PS2, PS1) games, then your "diode" as I mentioned is failing to read correctly.
Again, I am not completely sure of the exact problem that you are having. I would need a little more information.
I hope this gives you a start.

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.
