MY PS3 WON'T LOAD ANY DISC! This just happened today, and all of my games are in good condition. I recently got the newest update of the PS3 firmware. All I get is a never ending loading circle of doom. D:...


no worries bud...gotchya covered...first off..if u cant access the ps3 main menu at all then u cant delete the update singularily..if u could access the main menu, just go to the item u updated...(i.e playstation home) and delete it and download and reinstall again...if not...then heres the fix...dont worry it wont erase anything, just corrupted data...which it sounds like u have...k....1. Start with having the system in standby (redlight is on)
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Press and hold the power button again and keep holding, it will beep as it turns on and then it will double beep. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try)
4. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
You will now have a screen with these options (I have attached a picture of this screen below)
1. Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
2. Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
CHOOSE THIS ONE 3.Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
4. Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
5. Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
6. System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT CHOOSE THE WRONG OPTION HERE OR YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA. The one that fixed my blu-ray drive is option 3: RESTORE FILE SYSTEM
I REPEAT CHOOSE RESTORE FILE SYSTEM hope it helps ya!

Video output settings


You might have to reset your display settings. You will need to turn off your PS3, Holding down the power soft key, turn the unit on in the back. Keep holding the soft key until the unit turns back off. Wait for about 15 seconds. Press the power soft key again. You will hear one beep, then a second beep. Then you will hear 2 quick beeps, as SOON as you hear those two consecutive beeps, let off the power soft key and a screen should come up to reset your display settings. Good luck!

MY PS3 DOSENT READ MY GAMES


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not start the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu.

I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

Start up screen keeps freezing


My playstation was doing the same thing. I called a service person in South Carolina. He said that the system has crashed and it needs to be repaired by Sony. What he told was if I call the Manufacturer tell them that I was doing a network update and they will fix for free.
