Well try resetting the outlet that the PS3 is plugged into, unplugging everything from the PS3, and plug everything back in, it should work. If not, call Sony Customer Support and they will Fix your PS3 For you. Hope this helped.

Hi, so I was playing a game tonight, and it froze loading between playing and a cg video sequence so I turned it off, then back on now when I put any disk in the thing it wont play anything. whats up with...


Hi, nikina_vande!

I had the exact same issue with my PS3 in the past (it was a launch model too). Basically one of the diodes on the disk lesne burned out (this is a really rare occurance) and basically made the whole disk lense usless.

Sadly the only way to repair a faulty disk lense is by getting it to official tech support. You could try ordering the replacement parts and having it repaired by a third party or yourself but this is not recommended since it voids the PS3 warranty.

Hope this helped you!

The system froze while playing a game, and now


If your PS3 is freezing up then this happens in much the same way as the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.

The GPU and the CPU heat up and you need to stop the heat to fix it.

You can send it in and pay $130 to get it fixed or you can use the recommended PS3 Repair guide that will have it fixed for you in under an hour!

Reading disk, but wont play game


Check the disk for fingerprints or scratches. Also, try restarting the PS3 and try another game to make sure that your system is working properly.

If your PS3 is not reading disc, but can play demos, music, etc. You need to replace your PS3's lens.
