Hello,

try the steps below. Its from PlayStation Forum:

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

If the above steps still does not solve the problem, then I think will have to update your Ps3.

Update your PS3 (in the settings menu the 1st option).

Go on the internet browser on the PS3 then go on the menu press triangle then on one of them there are delete cookies and the delete the others as well as cookies.

You could also try this as well: put the PS3 on then press the eject button (with no disc in) then hold it and switch the PS3 off at the back with your finger on the eject button still holding it, then put it back on and the fan test should be working this may cool it down. It might be over heating.

But if your problem is not still solved, then maybe you should call sony for further assistance.

I wish you good luck.

For some reasom my ufc2010 all the suden wont play and gives me a error code of 80010514 can anybody help me


Hello Chadhughes20,

Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game disc recognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, the drive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems. When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, will receive the error.

FIFA 11 game wont start (PS3) gives me error code 80010514. All other games work fine. Game works fine in brothers PS3. Never had this problem before. PS3 support says they have had a lot of calls with...


It's eiyther one of two problems:

The first is that FIFA 11 is screwed up due to an EA Sports programming glitch within the game - (see http://www.community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Technical-Help/FIFA-11-Error-80010514/m-p/11614173))

OR

The second is that your PS3 is dying and the laser won't read discs. Which gets progressively worse, or so i've read. - (see http://www.ps3blog.co.za/2008/04/10/ps3-error-80010514-explained/)

I'm getting the same error but my PS3 isn't yet 12 months old, so is going back to the store.

P*ssed that I can't play the new FIFA though!!!!

Not reading the games disc and when i put in a


This could be alnes problem or a system problem. Try to restore the PS3 first.

Turn off the ps3 then press and hold the powr button until it turns off again. Then do the same thing but this time it will make a beep, then it will make a double beep, and as soon as the ps3 makes a double beep release it. Its going to bring up a menu and make sure you press number 3 which is restoring file system. I would recommend going to this webpage which explains everything in better details http://www.ps3blog.co.za/2008/04/10/ps3-error-80010514-explained/

What is the error code 80010514


If you enter the code into error code tool on PS3 site it says " issue reading discs". I would suggest clean and recalibrate laser. If that dont work order new laser and tray. They can be found on ebay for about $75 US.

Disc reading problems


Gamerevolver.comrecently ran into the the dreaded 80010514 error shortly afterinstalling a new game they had purchased off the PlayStation Store anddecided to document it. Here is what the have to say…
Since this error occurred, we obviously contacted SonySupport. We were informed that the code is not common, and a simplereset of the system, and restoral of factory settings should do thetrick. Unfortunately, after the restoral, the error still occurred.
The error code is actually one of two things, a) afaulty sector on the internal hard drive, or b) a faulty installationof software/firmware, both iterations actually coincide with eachother.If the hard drive suffers a faulty sector ( a section of damaged spaceon the drive that data may have been written to that no longer isreadable), an installation may still be processed, and even work, butthe error can cause some serious side effects, such as option b. Ifyour PS3 has installed an item incorrectly, including firmware, it isin high risk of receiving this error.
Basically, what is occuring is the corruption of game discrecognition and execution. If you will notice, in 90% of all cases, thedrive will still play DVD and even Blu Ray movies with no problems.When trying to start a game however, the title, sooner or later, willreceive the error.
1) Ensure that your internet connection is stable.If you are using a wireless connection, make sure your signal is atleast a solid 80%. If not, make the proper adjustments until it is.
2) Dust your machine regularly. Any PS3 owner willtell you that the Playstation 3 is a dust magnet. Just run a dry clothover it every couple days, and you should be fine. This will helpprevent heat issues and shorts that may occur.
3) When installing firmware and/or software, makesure you follow the instructions. Even if you have installed 6 versionsprior, each one is different, and may require additional steps. Saveyourself the headache and just follow them, it only takes a minute orso longer to do it right.
Lets sum it all up, the error is not hardware related and is causeddue to corruption of firmware. Restoring you PS3 will not roll back thefirmware, and unfortunately will not fix the issue 9 times out of 10. If you are receiving this error, contact Sony for a replacement unit. Again I hope none of my readers have to see the dreaded 80010514 error and by following Gamerevolver.com’s simple steps your bound to prolongue the life of your PS3 indefinitely.



If u have access to another hard drive, try replacing the ps3 one with this one, if not, back to Sony it is.
