Hi,

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

From the above select option "Rebuild Database". After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu.


Thank you

Hi, i think where you buy the CDs from Tesco, are not OK,am sure they are the original version of that particular game (star wars).
You can try another game store and get that particular star wars cd and install to be sure is not the lens of the game that is weak to play the game or the star wars cd is bad.


Have a nice day.

Hello, and sorry to hear you have PS3 troubles, but let me tell you the first thing i would do is try playing another game to make sure if this issue is happening only with this game or with all of them, if it happens only with this game, then its not the system, and it happens with all the games then it is a system issue. Try playing music via USB to see if you get any sound, and try playing a dvd or a Bluray movie to see if you have similar problems, try shutting the whole system off from the back for a couple of minutes and unplug it, make sure everything is connected properly. And lastly if it doesn't work after all that, then contact Sony for advanced support and consider a warranty replacement.
