Won't read games-any bluray


Usually 80010516 = An error occured during the start operation; PS One game swapped using the eject function and then play pressed quickly, PS One game inserted again.

Well there are only two things that can be done.
1.) Check to make sure the disk is clean, as well as the PS3 vents.
2.) Get a cleaning disk to clean the lens.

If those to do not work you may want to try saving all of your game saves and anything you want to save and do a full system restore (format) IF nothing then, call Sony to have the lens replaced.

If you want you could do this your self. Many online manuals to how to take apart the PS3 and clean the lens.

Whats wrong


does this only happen with CoD4? If so you may have a faulty disk. Goto your local blockbuster and rent CoD4 and see if it does the same thing. If it does, you need to RMA your ps3 877-253-SONY and request a RMA.

If it doesn't you got a bad game disk.

The only thing you can do is get it replaced or fixed, unfortunately. Take it to wherever you got it with the reciept and they should be able to either replace it or send it back to Sony to get it fixed. If you want to keep all of your data, you'll need to get it fixed - but you can copy all your saved games onto a USB device if you want to (I'd recommend doing this whatever you do, just in case something happens).

PS3 wont read disks


ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.
