Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

3 Answers

Won't read the disc.

I was playing Civilisation Revolution and the game froze, i waited (had my tea) for half an hour and still it was frozen. Nothing flashing from the hard drive, i turned the unit off and on again, now the PS3 doesn't even register having a disc in.

any ideas?

This may be simple but you may have damaged the CD by getting fingerprints on it and the game can no longer read the required information. Remeber to use soapy water and clean from the center out only. Then wash with fresh water and shake dry. When dry just insert as normal.

I often get Blue Ray movies from Netflix that are not even recognized until they are cleaned. I use the PS3 for playing them and I find it is more sensitive than my Xbox (where I play HD format movies)

A possible over heating issue that damaged the lense or the lense itself needs readjusting (rather than replacing)
