My ps3 will play ps3 games but not dvds. it loads the dvd then turns black. Any suggestions?


The ps3 blu-ray laser is a 3 part system (cd, dvd, and blu-ray) More than likely the dvd portion of the laser is damaged.

I'd recommend using the ps3 to play games / blu-rays until the laser completely fails before replacing.

Here's a website with some tips and advice.

Ps3 wont eject a movie, tried turning it off and on, the blue light doesnt come on either, how do i get it to eject the disk


switch off ps3, right now before turning on the ps3 keep your hand pressed firmly down on the eject button and the on/off button simultainisly and then power up, it will make a loud fan noise but the game/dvd will pop out.

Ps3 fan is really loud and won't stop, sounds like a vacuum cleaner ... i can turn the system off for hours and when i turn it back on it is still making that sound


Most probably your fan has gone faulty. The link below shows how to disassemble it, do this and clean out, or replace your fan, or indeed it MAY be the DVD, perhaps that may be the culprit, you still have to open to check. Be slow and methodical. keep all screws together in a little container. Be cateful when unplugging leads. You should be fine.

Ps3 keeps freezing on games only


Try using a can of air to blow out the fan area. Even though its well ventilated it may be full of dust. It sounds like an overheating issue. Also look into aftermarket fan/cooling solutions, that dont plug directly into the PS3 and have there own outlet power plug.

When i turn on my ps3 it works fine until i play for about 15 minutes then a loud fan starts running.


Does the PS3 still work while the fan is running. This is typical with PS3, especially if the fan is dirty. It comes on and off to cool down the processors.
