Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

PS3 will not read or load games

So here's what's happened.
I've been playing Dynasty Warriors 6 for the past 4 or 5 days for several hours without any problems whatsoever. Prior to this lengthy extent of gameplay, the console was not used for 2 weeks due to a holiday.
I turn on the system today, game still in the machine, and boot up DW6 instantly, jump into the game for all of 10 minutes, until a cutscene trigger freezes the game. The sound was still there, but the picture had completely frozen and I was unable to move anything or access the XMB or turn off menu.
So, seing it as the only option, I pulled the plug from the back of the console, waited a minute or two and put the cable back in, and booted it up. The problem now is that the loading circle at the top of the screen will spin forever and will not load any game. I had seen that a lot of people had this problem with GTA4, which I have played for about an hour or so a few days ago, but my time was on DW6, whch is a game that requires no data install.
So, can anybody tell me the cause and solution of this problem? It's hard to imagine a few hours without the PS3.

    I was playing HAZE when I died by jumping off a cliff and then I was about to respawn when all of the sudden the screen went black so I turned it off and turned it back on and the disc that you select to start the game wasn't there and it wouldn't shut off. I haven't played my PS3 in almost 2 months and that was my first time to play that game I had just started the game on the first level. One day I tried to play RockBand and it wouldn't let me so I tried all of my other 15 games and none of them would work so I just gave up now all I get to play is XBOX 360 does anyone have any suggestions.

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3


BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps

You're stuck not being able to play, you need to get the slim PS2's because they reconverted the discs for a new disc encoding.

This is a common problem so it should be a quick fix. But, depending on how many repairs the shop you are sending it to has will ultimately decide how long it will be there. Sorry to say but you may be looking at 4-6 weeks.
