Ring Sony. The update to version 2.3 contains a fault. The Blu Ray chip in the console is being allowed to run faster than it safely can, and it burns out. You must ring Sony, they are aware of this problem and will arrange a courier to collect your PS3 and a new unit will be sent out to you.

This is a version 2.3 update problem only.

PS wont play My sons PS3 was working fine when it just stopped.The red light flashes on the console and the hand control but doesnt go any further..We cant even get to the main menu to see if we can...


If you have the red light all you need to do is stop the heat build up and you will be able to play again - use a good repair guide or send it in and they will fix it for you.

Bought a blue ray movie to try out on ps3 now it asks for an encryption key, wth? i don't hook my ps3 to inter net, but asking for a system software update to renew encryption key to play blue ray


-= Renew PS3 Encryption Key =-

If i was you i wouden update. the latest update sony have provided is causing alot of problems, such as not being able to read blue-ray movies and games. (3.00/3.01)

I know you dont see it this way, but i acaully see you as a very lucky person that you havent updated your machine yet, my ps3 dont work anymore after i updated, or it does work, but it just cant read any blueray games or movies.

But if you have a ps3 slim you probaly wont have this problem, its more older models that suffer under this bug. :(

i dont know what your current firmware is, but if its way below 2.80, then your still in the safe zone, cuz if you own a usb memory stick you can transfer the 2.80 update to ( USB-ROOT\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP ) and then unplug it from your computer and insert it into your ps3 and then try the update from local storeage.

i hope you can use this :o)

I am having an issue with my bluray drive on my ps3. the system will not accept anykind of disc but will play games that were brought through the store. I am planning on opening up the case my self and...


dont... there is no need to open your ps3 at the moment....
its the update that screwed your ps3...

you arent alone with this problem, i got the exsact same problem, i even tried to clean the lens with no luck. so thats why i say dont to cleaning it, cuz it wont work.

and about now alot would say "then your lens is fried, go buy a new"
but im 10000000% sure it aint, and a cleaning wont work eather.

other fact is that i acually can load my games if im really patient and want to eject and insert the disk about a 100 times before it reads it,
and if it was fried it woulden even read the disk at all...

so just hang in there ps3 bud, and wait to they gonna release a new update that will fix it...

When I try to update to version 1.02 on NHL 09 for my PS3, it just restarts the PS3 and the update will not load. Why is this?


Well first dont play the game first. At the menu go to settings, then system update. Try both via Internet and via Meadia storage. It will probaly work.

NOT PLAYING ANY DISCS


Have u tried cleaning the laser, and not with a cleaning disk as the lense on these are concaved and the cleaning disk only gets the edges, this would mean removing the Blu-ray unit stripping it and cleaning lense with cotton buds and lense cleaning fluid.
