Error 80010514 on Ps3


It could be 2 things.

1. You need to clean your lens.
2. Your lens is dead, and you would need to get it replaced.

My ps3 shuts down exactly at the same point on one game every time, any ideas


Does it do this on any other games? Sounds like a scratched disc, try cleaning the disk itself.

Nba 2k11 freezing in 1st quarter of 17th game of season


If this is the only time this occurs you may have one of two problems:

- You might have a scratched disk, try cleaning it or get a known good copy and test it.

- You might be overheating your Playstation 3. Place it in a well-ventilated area and make sure it isn't running hot. (If you put your hand over the out vent on the PS3 and it hurts your hand, this is a good indicator of heat build-up.) If there is still heat build-up use an air compressor or vacuum to remove the dust from the PS3's vents.

PS3 doesn't show a disc image on screen but when it finally does show the disc image the game does not work / it freezes


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

How can i fix my PS3 disk read error


The lens on the PS3 might have developed a fault which is preventing it from reading . Try cleaning the lens with a dvd disc cleaner first. Make sure the discs are not scratched or covered in dust

No game data found


this soundsl ike the prob i just had, it is due to the last 2 updates causing laser to spin too fast, and burn out. only way to fix that i know, is by ringing sony, and they will happily send u out a replacement ps3 and a coupon via email for the post office to post ur console to them. they r still covering ps3s that have just ran out of warranty too. the service from sony was wonderful.
