    no the thing is spotless inside. it will not take any type of media its like the hole drive is not functioning. the motors will not take in the disc and the the tray looks as if it is off. one side will go up and the other will not and the hole thing just seems to be off badly and i read you posted to someone else you might be able to help them with step by step process to fixing this problem. i mean at this point i cant use the drive at all so its not like iam going to mess anything up more than it already is messed up. so any help you can give would be great please....... i am pretty good at fixing things but i have never worked on a ps3 before so this is all new one to me i have fixed 360 over and over again. so any help you can give would be great. thanks.

Yeah, sony doesn't have good customer support. umm. how long have you had it? if it is dusty around the vents then it is probably dusty inside too and *may*be preventing the drawer from moving properly. but it may also be the belts/gears /motors.

    well, are the pins that allow the tray to slide in place? are all the 'ramps' in place and intact? do all the gears turn? is the motor even making an attempt to turn on? (note, it is operated by one motor that opens the drive and closes it then rotates the laser assembly up into place to read the disc)

My ps3 has error 80710723 and says it needs to update. when i try to update it i get the error and cannot connect to the network.


Download the update from your PC save it on a usb flash drive. On the flash drive create a folder and name it PS3 and inside of that folder make a folder and name it UPDATE. Save the download into the file that you named UPDATE make sure you name the downloaded file PS3UPDAT.PUP.
Put the usb into a usb port on your PS3 and goto system update and do the update via storage. Make sure the files and the downloaded contene named files are all in upper caps.

I cant install PS3 firmware update 3.15. I can download it but I cant install. error code is 8002f147. what should I do. next question. my ps3 wont turn on by pressing ps button. ( controller) just the...


I've got exactly the same problem i'm running 3.10 on my PS3 and have tried restoring the system doing a full format of the drive you name it. nothing works. The update 3.15 downloads fine but it gets to 21% of the install and brings up this 8002F147 error. I can't play any Blue Ray films on it or go on the web as all it wants to do is run this update which it can't. Additionally I also can't turn on via
the PS button. It's a 80GB one that i've just brought off ebay.

Ps. I called Playstation support at the weekend and they advised that I take it around my friends and try running the update which made no differnce which I thought it wouldn't as i've tried it via flash etc which downloads fine it's an install problem......

Please help......

My ps3 won't play blue ray movies!


Cause

PS3 has a AACS (Advanced Access Control System) is a copyright-protection technology that is used on Blu-ray Discs. The copyrighted content is protected by setting an encryption key on both the disc and the device used to play the disc.

An AACS encryption key expires in 12 to 18 months and must be renewed, so no matter if you have a new PS3 or using it already make sure you keep upgrading your PS3 firmware regularly.

Solution

There are two ways to update as listed below:

* Update via Internet
* Update via Storage Media

Download the update data directly to the system from the Internet. The latest update is automatically downloaded.

Select Settings -> System Update, Download the latest update data from the Internet. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the operation.

You also perform this system update via a storage media, Use update data saved on a disc, Memory Stick™ or other media. Download the update data from a Web site using a PC

Hope this helps, Wishing you happy holidays and happy Gaming

My PS3 playd cd dvd but not blue ray games


Problem with the laser it sounds like. If you still have the system apart with the dvd drive out, go ahead and replace the laser. You can usually find them on Ebay.

Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning


What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.
