It may be dirty as these systems collect a huge amount of dust.. or it could be a faulty laser..
if under warrenty call sony.. if not buy one on ebay for 120$ ish and install it!
or try buying a new laser and see if that works!
otherwise you could sell it for parts..
Laser is 50$ on ebay
I think sony should have a better replacement policy but they dont!

You might have to do a system restore. I don't know why playing a game would do that, but it happens. Here is a vid that will help.

Hi your laser is bad or dirty. I'm assuming bad as when it froze during your game thats when the laser went out. So you will need to get a new laser.

New crown compatible wii fitness board will not sync with wii console. board only blinks a few times then switches off


Have new crown compatible fitness board, new batteries inserted, inserted Wii fitness disc, choose training, then trial, choose hula hoop game, used remote press A to start.

Screen says place me on a flat floor and press POWER button before stepping onto me

Followed the instructions power button flashes blue, as do the four corners then the lights go out - then nothing happening, still have the same message place flat on floor etc....

Have also tried the Wii Balance Board Check - followed all instructions last one says please turn on power. Pressed button flashes blue as do four corners then they go out

Am I doing something wrong or Is this a faulty board ?

Thanks

I inserted a new movie and I have no sound nor video with a green and blue lights on.


I had this weird problem yesterday knowing I have not done any video setting changes, nor recall a pending software installation. When I start the PS3, green light comes up and then nothing happens. Insert the Game into the slot, blue light blinks and again nothing happens. No video, no sound, and no, it’s not output setting problem as many others have guessed in forums. Try to assign your wireless controller and you’ll know. It doesn’t. If it was on, output and controller assigning I assume should be two separate things.
Solution:
  1. With the PS3 in Standby mode (Red light on), press and hold the Start button until you hear a single beep, followed by double beeps.
  2. Connect the controller using USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.
  3. Now, the system restore screen (or whatever they call it) will come up like this



  4. You have several options here for restoring the system, some will unfortunately wipe up all your data, others will make you lose the file naming. For me, I tried the option top-bottom and eventually had to do the Restore PS3 System. Luckily, all I had were demos, trailers, and game saves. only game I was really playing now was Prince of Persia. I felt terrible still though, but much better than if I was playing Ninja Gaiden or MGS right? Or let’s say a game Fallout!
Sharing it for others with same misfortune. Guess we’ll need the PS3 included in the backup plan then.

My problem is exactly waht p_sellwod describes.


Okay, what you are having is more then likely a bad dvd lens.. You said that you swapped the blue ray drive with another one. That wont work, there is a key and a difrent modal number on each drive. There are something like, A1,A2,A3 etc... The number is locatded on the top right hand connor on the bottom of the drive. The number must HAVE to be the same to work in another ps3, so if you find one with the same number, and you are still are having the same problem, then send it off to sony. But if it dose work then you know it is the dvd lens. I do this every day, for a living. Hope it helps. Let me know if this helps. Thanks...

PS3 load games or blue rays.


It could be that the settings on your ps3 are configured poorly for your television. Try fidling around with the output, and video settings form the settings section on the XMB. If none of this works then chances are your ps3 is broken.
