    Hey michael I am about to leave as I am in alaska and we are going out to eat... Let me ask you this, does it take in any game at all? does the disc actually enter the system? It sounds like the loader is stuck when I get back I can email you some things that should and could help out! Worse comes to worse you sell it and buy a new one.. and I can help you out there as well!

Discs not spinning


If the disc is not spinning in your PS3 than that means the disc drive is broken. Your best bet would be to contact sony if your PS3 is still under warranty so they could fix it, or just buy your games digitally and play them without the disc.

Hi my name is Michael my ps3 is'nt working when i turn it on it will stay on for a few seconds then shutdown what could this be?


Hello Michael, your PS3 has serious issues, when this happen, the main board is highly suspected. A replacement of the power supply board is also needed, there is no user serviceable parts inside pS3. View this link to get an idea. http://www.gamespot.com/pages/unions/forums/show_msgs.php?topic_id=25128990&union_id=2479 Find first a replacement power supply, test, if it works, then good, if not a replacement motherboard is in order.

Hello my name is Michael. I would appreciate some help i have an acer aspire 5920 ad would like to reformat it however when i start the computer in any mode including safe mode it says start up repair...


Hi Michael,
Its possible to reformat your hard drive by using a DOS boot floppy disk or CD. You can create this disk on another pc then boot your pc from this disk. It will boot your pc to a DOS prompt, usually "C:>" from there you can create partitions, delete partitions and format the hard drive. The command for creating partitions is FDISK.exe. Make sure your boot disk has the FDISK.exe command on it.
Let me know if you require any further assistance regarding this.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

My PS3 won't read the games or DVD's. Is the hard drive frozen or broken? My Son is very diappointed that he will lose all his game history? Can anyone help?


if the ps3 wont read DISC games the BD drive in the ps3 is bad and needs to be replaced. I would suggest you call Sony and have them replace the drive if the ps3 is still under warranty.

since the BD discs are read only and nothing is stored on them like game saves, your son wont lose any saves he has becasue they are stored on the ps3 hard drive.

i would suggest if you do send the console to sony i would back up the contents of the drive just incase they decide to wipe it clean.

you can perform a backup from the setting menus on the ps3.

Will not allow us to play the disc installed in the ps3 console


Unless this is a game you "installed" from the online store, then all other PS3 games require the disc in to play.

With the disc in the system, go to the Game heading in the menu. You should see a disc icon with the name of your game...now click it. If you do not see the image, you will probably see text that says "disc read error". In this case you need to either clean the disc, or replace the disc with a non-scratched or non-defective one.

If your PS3 does this with multiple non-defective discs, then your blu-ray drive may be defective.

System shuts off and turns to red light standby


Hello. You may want to double check your connections and cables. The only time I've ever heard a clicking before a system shut it's self down was when a kid had stuck the battery cover from a TV remote into the disc drive.
Also, if the PS3 keeps acting like that, Sony will repair/replace the unit for free including shipping since it's under a year old. Thanks and good luck!

BLUE RAY DRIVE


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.
