Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

40GB PS3 Hey man, you still buying problematic consoles? Mine works fine except after the 2.3 upgrade, it won't play a disc. It seems to acknowledge they're in there (blue light is on solid), but won't play anything. The BD disc symbol is gone off the Video memory as well. Make me an offer and I'll consider it unless you know a quick fix. :) PS - I'll try resetting the laser to see if that helps. Thanks - Todd Roanoke VA

Hmm no a new laser at the cost of 45$ via ebay is the best price.. i know a seller but I need to buy 15 to get a discount lol..
I normally stay away from 40gb bc the 60 20 and 80 are most popular! email me a price you think is fair!

Can i transfer files from my 40gb ps3 to a 80gb ps3?


yeah you can by getting an external HDD. transfer the files from the 40GB to the external HDD and then plug it into the 80GB. and then just copy all the files from the external HDD to the 80GB PS3.

(yeah takes time but its the only solution since they don't allow the consoles to connect together.)

My PS3 does not read any disc since last week


My PS3 did the same thing this past Monday. I called PS3 toll free number and they took my information and is sending me a prepaid box to ship my console back to SONY Corp. so they can fix it. No cost if it's under warranty(there are exceptions to this though). It will take up to 10 business days to get back once they receive the console.

In the meantime, I went and bought a refurbished PS3 40GB to hold me over. Still waiting for the prepaid box to arrive. I must be crazy to buy another PS3 to hold me over until mine is fixed but I'm going to return the other one once i get my other one back. I have 30 days.
