For my ps3 when i start a demo the screen turn black .and when i put a game in the blueray its not spinning what was the problem does its the mother board or what???


The Blu-ray drive is probably broken since you've confirmed it's not spinning. As for why demo's won't play, it may be some sort of security feature (disc drive won't work, therefore assume that games can't be played and disable all other game playing). I'm not sure I'm kind of guessing on this one.

What I do know is that replacing the Blu-ray drive of a PS3 isn't the easiest thing in the world, and there's no guarantee that doing it will fix your console. Your best option is probably to send your PS3 back to Sony for repair. If it's under warranty the repairs will be free; otherwise it's $150. Regardless of warranty status, you won't get back your PS3 for a month or two. You can start the process of sending in your PS3 on Sony's PS3 support website, linked to here.

Make sure you backup your data before doing so! Sony won't save any of it for you. You can backup your data using the Backup Utility by navigating to XMB > Settings > System Settings > Backup Utility. Then just follow the on-screen instructions.

Sorry for the disappointing solution. Hope you either find a better solution, or at the very least it's under warranty and Sony sends it back ASAP.

In the middle of playing it shuts off and a red light starts to beep and flicker on and off


Unfortunately, you are going to need to have your PS3 serviced by Sony. If your disc is stuck inside, if flip the switch button off on the back of the PS3. Then press and hold the eject button and turn the button at the back on again. This should eject the disc.

Ps3 locking up


yes, this must be a problem with your blu-ray reader . did you try to run another bluray disc game ?

you should try:
  • restoring system settings
  • reinstalling possible game files.
  • look for possible game updates
  • reinstalling sony firmware (re-update via USB)
if nothing of this works, you should take the system to a support centre for verify possible hardware damage .

Ps3 console problems


Hello, When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first. If you know how to do it yourself, you will need part KEM-400AAA / KES-400A if it is not spinning. If it's spinning and not reading the laser may be dusty or need replacement. The laser by it's self is part number is KES-400AAA. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.

I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
