Hi, let's try to understand which is the 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

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

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 games play but DVD/Blu-ray will not


Sounds like a bad laser, but you should restore the PS3 back to Factory to see what happens.

If you get the same results it's definitely the laser.
