My PS3 will play dvds perfectly, but whenever i play a PS3 game, it'll play for a short time, then glitch up, and freeze. It'll then start saying an error occured and the game canoo't be started, and appear as corrupted data. What is going on? and how can i fix this?

Only time I ran into this was a bad laser.

after system would get hot the laser would stop working replaced laser all was well after hours of game play.

but with all drive problems can be the drive board, over heating as well causing it to stop reading.

Since i got assassins creed my ps3 was freezing a lot


Oh dear, i'm afraid to say you've got one of the 'fatal' error codes. The error you're encountering means there is a major problem with the blu-ray drive (you're PS3 is pretty much shot)...sad.gif

The only thing you can do is ring Sony's tech support and arrange for a replacement console. If you are still under their one year warranty, you will get a replacement console free of charge


or if your console still works just dont play that game
if it keeps freezeing its becuse of the blu-ray driver :( you would need to try setting it to factory def's or if that does'nt work try rolling back the firmware upgrades........or just buy a xbox 360..

PS3 won't play games, but plays dvds.


You might want to buy a cleaning disk, I'm assuming that the child had got something on the game and it was loaded and now the lens is dirty. Try that first.

My ps3 it does`nt play any games or dvds


sad to say this, but maybe formatting the HD and then do a system update, might remove a possible glitch, but u will lose all info in the HD,other than that, i dunno.
Download an update to a memory stick with ur pc in case u need it.
