Opening it up wont fix your problem...You didnt mention whether you have a warranty still intact or not. You are experiencing an electronic failure after the system warms up. Bottom line $ 150.00 to Sony or another repair center you trust.

It sounds like you have gotten some corrupted data on your hard drive or there is something wrong with your drive. The link below will take you through resetting the drive. Note in your case since the PS3 does boot to the PS3 menu I would recommend backing up any save games that you want to keep before you format the drive.

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

Playstation3 is not loading games at all


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not load 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.

Playstation 3 wont play PS3 Games


ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

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

PS3 freezing during multiple games


Check the vents on you ps3. If those are blocked or even too close to a wall or something like that, the game will freeze.
