My ps3 wont load games r dvds


Mine too!, common problem, very low quality blu-ray drives, its a case of buying a new drive and fitting it yourself or a new PS3 unless its under warranty.

My ps3 wont read any disk compatible with the ps3


My PS3 stopped reading my PS3 games last month, but it was still able to read DVDs. I looked it up online and learned that it usually happens when you smoke a lot around your PS3 while it is running and a film builds up on your blu-ray lens. I followed this YouTube video and had it playing my games again fine. Hope this helps.

Games dont run


I had the same problem, dvds, audio disks, and even blu-rays don't tax the processing power of the system like games do... I ended up sending it in for repairs, it was out of warrantee, so it cost me about $150.

The good thing is that that turnaround time is FAST!

Good luck,
Scott

Not reading disks/dvds


Hi there, this is very likely your optical drive that died. Same thing happened to me last month. It first started with the game freezing in the middle of the action or when it was loading after a mission. then it simply stop loading games or blue ray.

Since I was out of the warranty by 2 months, I unfortunately had to pay for repair ($169). Sony will send you a special box to ship your PS3 to their repair centre - should take about 1.5 weeks before getting it back. If your PS3 is still under warranty, you should not have to pay for repair...unless they find out that unit was abused or very dirty. Considering the special box they send to protect your console, usage of Purolator or UPS courrier etc. it is not "too bad" of a price to pay to get it fixed...instead of buying a new one at $500...

They have changed my optical drive and it's now working fine (but for how long??). Looks like this problem was happening a lot to older version of PS3 (purchased end of 2007 in my case, 40G version).

Hope this helps!

Got picture no sound on games only


Check the audio settings on PS3 and make sure they are set to what audio source you are using. If not that make sure those inputs work with other devices. If not that then the sound card has gone out and the soon the video car will go out.... :(

Ps3 wont load games up


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.
