My game wont load

I start my ps3 up, I insert my game, I wait for the game to start and it doesn't, it doesn't say if there an error because i can still use all the menu stuff but it just doesn't give me the option to play my game. Why is this happening?

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!

PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error


The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

Error when downloading game from the Playstation-Network. An error occurred.</span><br /><br />80710B23 - Playstation-Network is down or Playstation-Network is too busy to respond.<br /><span><br />80710D23 - Turn the PS3 off for a bit. For 30 minutes give or take. Make sure that you either unplug or actually turn off the switch (located on the back of the PS3). "Stand-by" mode is when you see the red LED on the front of the PS3. If you see the red LED on the front of the PS3, your PS3 is *NOT* off.</span><br /><br />81019002 - Error copying saves from location "A" to location "B" not open to connect to store but PS3 can connect to internet.</span>

What firmware are you running?

What happened the VERY first time you inserted the game?

Did it require an update?
