Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Whenever I put in a Playstation3 Discs (Specifically PS3 Discs) Usually a icon will appear where you may press the X button to start playing. But for all MY discs nothing happens. This started 3 days ago and I have tried restarting the system and cleaning disc and nothing happened. It fixed itself once but then the problem started again about 3-5 minutes after that.

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a 3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

Hi,
You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu


  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

I can't Connect it to my Playstation3 with Bluetooth .. If i start scanning, The headset woudn't show on the Screen. Please help


To enter pairing mode the turn the headset off. Then start holding the middle button again till the headset turns one (green light + tone), but keep on pressing it till it starts to flash alternating red and green. The PS3 should be able to pick it up withing seconds. My **** manual specifically said that the headset should be off. Which is not true.
