The problem is with the wires on the intake motor board. The wires connecting to the board are loose and need to be re-sodered, or are fried. But its inside the blu ray case. It's the gray battery looking thing with the corkscrew on it and the board that's attached to the triangle shape board. or.....well my ps3 did the same thing and i bought a lense cleaner disk and but it on my ps3 for like 30 minutes or so and it worked fine after that

I never had problems playing cod modern warfare 2 till I downloaded the patch 1.09. My Ps3 gets stuck mid game. What can I do?


I need help too, my when i turn on the Ps3, it runs normally, but the system doesn't acknowledge there is a disc in it. When i eject the disc and put it back in, it reads and i start it up, but about 30 seconds into start up, the game freezes. I already reset the system & recovered memory. Any suggestions?

Tip

Disk stuck inside PS3 ? Try this.


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.

Disc not ejecting


Try the force eject (holding down the eject button for a few seconds until you see the blue light flash consistently) if that does not work try switching the power switch at the back ON while pressing the eject button at the same time causing the fans to blow at maximum rate & might eject your disc (Only let it blow for a few seconds on max power otherwise this could potentially burn up your graphics card!)

Sounds like the HDD is in need of replacement. This is common with aging PS3's.

PS3 Won't Take Disc!


Hi, I think it was me who had helped you before. I will be glad to help again. Ok, first you have to tear apart your PS3 (just like when you cleaned it). Now looking at the rollers and "dogs" make sure that they are closed and not open all the way like when a disc is in it. Look at the flap on the top too make sure it opens and closes freely. Next, PLEASE BE CAREFUL!! Plug your PS3 in and try to hit the eject button, if it is reset and ready for a disc it will beep twice when you hit the eject button without a disc in it. Place the top back on the he DVD drive and try to insert a disc. At this point it should take it. If not then try hitting the eject again. Once the PS3 resets and takes and ejects discs again, then you can put it back together.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

MY PS3 WONT ACCEPT DISK


I bought a PS3 yesterday and had to take it back - when entering a disk it would get pulled in and start to spin but would only go in still leaving about a half inch sticking out - it would spin for about 15 seconds and then stop. I had to take it back and get a replacement which worked fine.

Ps3 freezes once a game is installed


unplug the AC power cord at the back of the PS3 and leave it for a few minutes, then plug it back in and turn the console on it should then work. It happened to me a few times.
Hope this helps.
