Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hello my name is guy .my friend used the ps3 he was playing grand theft 4 he said the screen said there was a prob in the start up fore mate .but it plays DVDs&CDs but not games owning the ps3 was short lived can any 1 help me out lots bill of sale but warrenty is still good just wont game too work if u had this prob tell me wat u did 2 fix it thank ps340gig blue ray
This is a dirty or bad bluray drive which seems to be the same as the 3 rings of death for the 360..
Buy a cd laser cleaner and try that if it does not work your laser diode is bad and a new laser is 50$ via ebay.. if you dont want to get to technical then you can buy a drive for 120ish and switch them out.
Sony will charge 150$ + to fix it other then that there is no way around it.. and I believe you need a proof of purchase to get the warranty. I really hope the cd cleaner works but if not then your stuck...
You can sell it on ebay and if its a 60gb you can get about 200 for it... then buy a like new 40gb ps3 for 300ish I have seen just consoles sell at 290 incl shipping. Best of luck!
If you are happy please feel free to rate me THANKS!
