Hello, this problem usually happens when the B-Ray lens stops working. Let's try to understand which is the real problem first: 1 - put a movie dvd, blu ray or a music cd in your Ps3, if it can be read then there are many chances the problem is due to the game disc you're trying to load. This is also the easiest problem to solve: just try to clean the disc surface with a common glass cleaner and a soft tissue, then try to run it again. Check also if there are scratches on the surface, in this case you may need to replace the disc or you may also try to go to a local retailer and ask if they have a scratch removal machine... with few dollars they'll bring the alive again :) 2 - if your console just read some type of disc ig. only music, or only dvds, and some others not, then it's possible that there's some dust on the lens. You can try to clean it using one of those cleaning cd, with few dollars you can get one at your local best buy or similar shop. 3 - if your wont read anything, you may try to access the recovery menu, doing as follows:
Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try) It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable, Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu. Be aware that you might lose all of your previously saved data.
Other than that I'd call Sony technical support. Let me know if you need more help. Good luck, Peter_Rei

WHen I turn on my PSP I get a yellow screen/Menu. It has Settings, Camera, Music, Video etc. How do I exit this to play a game?


This is the XMB its the main menu of the system. Games will be located under the Controller Icon. To play games insert a UMD, or if a game is downloaded and saved on the memory card, go through the icons under Controller icon. A disk icon will appear and show a preview screen to the game, press X to start the game.

if your ps3 is not set up to auto play when you insert disk. the disk should show in the menu under video menu, just select the dvd icon. If it still wont play the easiest way to figure out the problem is go to your settings menu and select reset default settings. this will reset to factory settings but wont delete and info stored in your harddrive. then try again. it should play.

Psp ( i cant get games to play )


Have you inserted the game disc UMD into the PSP itself? You have to wait a few seconds after you turn it on before the game icon will be visible in the main menu screen before you can access the game. When it's active and you have the game icon selected press the "X" button to start the game.
