    I have tried to play my PS3 games, PS2 games and DVD's on my PS3 but it does not load, the loading light is on but the disc does not move, at least thats what it sounds like. This problems started when I was playing GTA 4 one night, at first my PS3 made a strange sound, I had to retry a mission and on the second time the screen froze then the details in the picture change to unrendered back ground and it would not move. I could not stop the system, or get the disc out, so I turned off the entier system and waited a couple of seconds then rebooted and got the disc out. I thought nothing of it at the time but know none of my games or DVD's will load. not sure what to do. Is this even repairable?

    I have the same problem. Mine froze when loading Metal Gear Solid 4 and now won't play anything at all. The disc goes in but then nothing happens. Have tried PS2 games and Blue ray discs but the disc reader doesn't seem to be working at all. Have turned the PS3 off at the mains but still nothing. How can I get this working again?

    updated to 2.41 and loaded Civilazation Revolution. Played for about an hour, then it froze. Now all I get is the pulsating loading symbol and nothing else. It won't play games, cd's or movies. Sony wants $150 to fix when it seems to be their problem. I followed all of the steps to re-format and re-set the system, but nothing works.

    This problem is becoming a widespread issue. Please voice your concerns to X-play or other gaming news sites to help get some visibility on this issue. For a console of this caliber and cost, consumers should not have to shell out 30% more money in less than 2 years. Mine just started doing this after playing GTA4 for about 3 hours. I am flabbergasted that sony hasn't addressed this officially yet. Lots of consoles are affected, do a search.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.

Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

you have to change your laser lens, thats probably what's wrong since your ps3 does not recognize the game when you insert it, you can chage it your self by buying a new laser lens for your ps3 if you do make sure to specify your playstation3 system i.e: Playstation 3 80gb or Playstation 3 SLIM 250 gb
