Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

My PS3 doesn't read any disc

It acts as if no disc is in there. Sometimes starts up the game then when its loading it will say an error has occurred and goes back to home menu. I've tried bluray, dvd, games and nothing works.

Sounds like a faulty/dirty/bad laser. Call sony 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
ask them what they can do! Normally its at least 168$ charge to get your ps3 back in order unless you are willing to open it up yourself.. if so let me know I can help you find parts and help you fix it.. parts are not to expensive but in the long run it may be better to either sell it as broke or send it in!

I do buy broken ps3's and can get you a deal on used or new systems!

PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error


The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

My ps3 refuse sometime to load my ps3 discs.


I have the same problem, it's error 80010514.  An error occurred during start up operation.  That's what you would see on your screen if the disc would even get read.  Your ps3 is screwed.  Call 1-800-345-sony and talk to them.  They will tell you that you need to send it in and if your 1 year warranty is up you have to pay $150.  I'm waiting for them to send the coffin to send my ps3 back in
