Hello.
Your power supply has blown a circuit. It needs to be replaced. If your machine is out of warranty still call Sony. They know about the problem and may fix it for free.
BUT
Sorry to say, but you are in something called a catch 22. If you disassemble it to get your game, Sony will not fix it. If you send it to Sony to get fixed, they do not guarantee that you will get your game back. But you can talk to them about that if you call.

I hope this helps!! Good luck.

Your console is overheating. Make sure it is well ventilated and not running too hot.

My ps3 wont read games or movies


Hi,

This comes from the Playstation Forum:

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

If it still doesn't work then your lens inside the PS3 needs to be cleaned. Here is a video tutorial that will show you how you can clean the lens inside the PS3:

My playstation 3 will light up green then yellow


1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game. At last, eject finally pushed hubby's NBALive out of the playstation.

My game will not eject from my playstation 3. what should i do?


with your ps3 console turned on instead of just pressing the eject button press and hold it for 8 or more seconds this is the override force eject, unless the actual mechanism inside the drive have been damaged it should give your disk back

Playstation 3: disc won't come out


you can send it to sony if the warranty is still in place, if not. Open your PS3, remove the blu-ray drive and open it as well. once you take of the top you will be able to reach the game inside.
