Question about Video Game Consoles

1 Answer

I am having difficulty with my ps3 reading of my games which are blu-ray disks. I have heard the horror stories of how long Sony takes with fixing the system and getting it back to the consumer. I have heard that it takes approximately 1 month or possibly more than that! I need help.....BAD!

I have a xbox 360 and had the same problem. I would have to try loading the game over and over for about twenty minutes and then i would get lucky and it would play. (and thats with brand new games) I bought some duster and a dvd lens cleaner and sprayed the dust out and ran the lens cleaner and it worked perfect after that. Make sure you get a dvd cleaner and not a cd lens cleaner. If that doesnt work then you will have to send it in to get fixed.

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

Dvd rom in ps3 not reading


first of all its a blu ray drive. And sorry to say your probably out of luck, blu ray drives in ps3's ****, they are the cheapest blu ray drive on the market and they wear out fast. I think sony fixes them for 160$ without warrenty, if u do have warrenty just send it in. Hope this helps.

PS3 won't recognize disks after update


You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........
