Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I inserting the game or dvd and nothing happening on screen in right top corner he is showing what he is loading but nothing happening?
I got mine to work. First you should download the updated software update for the PS3 on to your home computer.. I believe the latest version is 2.76 and I believe you can download this off the PS3 website. You can use a sandisk thumb drive to back up any data from the PS3 but it must be in a Fat32 file system. I don't remember how to do that off hand but it shouldn't be too hard to google. We are going to use this as a memory card so you will want to put that in the machine and make sure you can read it and transfer files back and forth, music or what not. If it reads then go ahead and back up your data. It might be a good idea to try to have the software update on the same drive as your backup data so now would be the time to load the update file from your PC. Once you back up your data you will want to go through the settings menu and choose System settings. Once you're in system settings you'll see an option that says Restore PS3 system. Go ahead and run the restore. Once the restore is done you will go back through and set up the machine with language and time and all that. Once that is done you will want to go through and run the software update from the thumb drive. Once you have done this you should be able to go back through and set up the rest of the settings and you should also be able to transfer the game data back to the PS3. I was able to do this for MLB 09 the Show. PS3 couldn't read games or movies or connect online, ran this tool and it fixed the issues and I was able to pick up right where I left off in the RTTS mode.

I'm afraid your PS3 is dead. It's very rare, it happened to me too. Nobody's sure why it happens, but it just stops reading any disks at all, even though it retains all other functionality.
You've got to take it back to wherever you bought it with a reciept and they can either replace it or send it off to Sony for it to be fixed.
