You need to put in the game disc, or the disc is dirty so it automatically goes to the main menu. try to clean the disc if this is the case.

When my sons try to play a game, the screen stays on the main menu. Its like the system is not recognizing that a disc has been entered. This has happened before, we did factory reset as well as upd


The fact of the matter is, your system is not reading the game disks. The option to use a cleaner is always the best way to trouble shoot. After you use one, try a different kind of disk, like a DVD and see if it plays. If not, then your BlueRay drive is bad, and I would suggest sending it in for repairs.

This is a problem occurring in all the play station 3 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur PS3 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

Hi..every ps3 game that i insert too play, it dosnt seems to be apairing up on the main menu (normaly after loading, the disc icon pops up and allows you to start game, but noting). but it seems to play...


Seems to me you ether got a bad drive in this unit or you got scratched or dirty disc. Normally you would try a blue ray disc in this to see if it works if it doesn ot work you might have a issue with your drive.

The xbox 360 will not read game discs or give me the option to play the game it only gives me the option to play a cd


Hi

By the problem you have described, i beleive you have a modded Xbox 360 used to play copied games, if yes you need to check what game are you playing.

If it is a latest game, then you would require a Wave 4 patch to play copied games on a modded Xbox 360, you can google on the web to find out the list of games that require wave 4 patch to run before you play the game on Xbox 360

What you need to do is first burn the Wave 4 patch on a Dual Layer DVD and load the game disc first and you would see "play CD" option, now take out the game disc and enter the Wave 4 patch disc you just burned and again you would see "play CD" option.

DO NOT PLAY the CD, just take it out again and re-insert your copied game CD in your Xbox 360 and you should be good to go.

Play station 2 won't read silver disc only reads blue disc


Hi Elvis,

The Blue back disc is CD format. The DVD laser circuit is giving you trouble. You can adjust the DVD pot some on the back of the Laser. Turn it about 3 degrees clockwise. Then put it the laser back in. Test the PS2 with no cover on, and use the white round disc from the laser drive cover to clamp a disc onto the spindle. Test DVD and PS2 Games that do not have Blue back.
