Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My PS3 is not responding to loading discs. It does not recognize any DVD, game or Blueray disc. I tried upgrading to 3.41 and because I do not have an ethernet connection, I downloaded it to a jump drive and named it according to the instructions. The PS3 recognized it and found 3.41, but during the install I get an error 8002F990. What is wrong?

All oyu need to do to fix this is make sure that the laser is straight on the drive and to do this you should use a good repair guide or you can send it in to get it fixed.

Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

Won't play a blue ray disc


The blueray eye is out. You will need a new blueray player. The only problem with that is the ps3 will only respond with the orginal parts it came with. ( i.e. motherboard blueray player ) So the best bet is to buy a broken blueray player and take the eye out and replace it with yours just the eye not the whole thing.

Your display enviroment does not support protected content playback We are trying to play a blue Ray disc


First of all, do you have a BlueRay disc player in the computer, or just a DVD player? Also, from what I can tell, WinDVD 5 only supports DVD playback, not BlueRay. That may be why it's seeing "protected content". It just doesn't recognize the disc. If you do have a BlueRay player, you may need to upgrade to a newer version of WinDVD, or try some other software.

Ps3 plays DVD and Blueray just fine, but will not play game discs... can't seem to read them. discs are in perfect condition, tried several different discs, no luck.


Some time when that happens the system configuration is wrong reset the configuration to game play on. That should let you play Movies and game.But!, make sure you remove the disk.

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

My PS3 wont read any games and dvd Blueray .How can I fix this?


It sounds like you need a new disc drive, but it could just be a dirty lens. If you put the disc in and it just does not spin, you need a new disc drive.

PS3 not loading games, CD's or Blueray discs. Have swapped over blue ray drive and still not loading so we know it is not a drive fault. Restored PS3 to factory settings and still not loading discs. Blue...


The problem itself has not been solved but after more investigation I have found out that this is currently un-repairable.
This is because the console itself has a hardware blueray drive failure due to manditory firmware 3.00 released by Sony and there is currently no fix in place.
From what I can see on the net it looks like Sony maybe being sued over this issue. Sony has also stated that they are now looking into this firmware update to see what went wrong, they have not yet made any further comment.

PS3 not recognizing any disc


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.
