PS3 not recognizing any disc

After playing 'Call of Duty4', disc icon disappeared and won't return to recognize any disc. Tried hard-reset with power button, PS3 restore, reset default, different game and movie discs. Any help before I'm forced to call Sony? Thanks for your time.

    Unable to run any disc, I called Sony. They said return it with copy of receipt. Five days after shipping it, a new PS3 arrived at my door. Thanks stevek173 for your help.

See if a DVD works. For me, I know my Bluray is ruined because I can watch DVDs and play PS2 games fine but anything Bluray does not work. If a DVD does not work, you have more of a problem, if DVD does work you need a new BlueRay which Sony should take care of for you. If you don't have receipt, etc. like me you can buy a new Bluray (KES-400AAA) on Ebay and use this guide to install it http://edpsystemssupport.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=45.
Hope that helps.

Hi,
You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu


  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

Ps3 fan not running, ps3 not recognizing discs


I suggest calling up Sony and seeing how far you can investigate with their help. If you're warranty is up, opening it up shouldn't matter. However if a sony rep cant solve your problem maybe you can be eligible for a new one or something like that. hope this helped

You need to RESTORE FILE SYSTEM on your ps3.
Here is how you can do it.

HOW TO GO TO THE RECOVERY MENU OF PS3 SYSTEM

1. Make sure the ps3 is plugged in (stand by mode).
2. Put out your usb cable for the controller and the controller itself (do not connect yet).
3. Hold down power firmly, ps3 will turn on and then turn off, release power button when it turns off.
4. Hold down power again, you will hear a beep and then a double beep, when you hear that double beep release the power button.
5. Now you should be seeing something in your monitor that say "Connect usb controller", do just that.
6. After connecting the controller press PS button.
7. You are now in the recovery menu.
8. To fix the problem of corrupt data you can choose #3.
9. If you want to format your hard drive choose #5. Be aware that this option will delete everything that is in your hard drive.
10. Remember that doing #3 and #5 is not 100% to fix the problem of corrupt data, I say about 70%.

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.

Another Playstation 3 problem (HELP)


You have a (all too common) laser problem and need to get it serviced or replaced. This is happening to every 1 out of 10 PS3 units. The lasers are getting harder to get, and this (like gasoline) is causing the price to rise. I would call Sony first though. http://www.us.playstation.com/support/ps3

One person told me that if all else fails, to reset the system defaults. CAUTION: do not click on the "Reset PS3 System" !! It will wipe your hard drive.

Go to System Settings >> Restore System Defaults >>Yes. I have not been lucky enough to see this work, but it's worth a try.

I hope this helps

Playing mp3 songs on the ps3 --- 80gb


Whether you are hooking up your device through a USB cable or removable memory (SD card/Flash drive) the PS3 should recognize and play the titles. Here are a few steps to help you along.

1. Hook up device to your PS3

2. Select PS3 media icon where files files should be located

3. Press triangle button on controller

4. Sub menu will show up on side of screen

5. Select the 'display all' option

6. Files should now be accessable/loadable/playable

Playing files directly from the Mp3 player or loading them on the hard drive are both do-able and both methods should work.
