Do you have the red light of death I wonder??? What happens when you switch on your ps3. Does the green light come on, then beep at you and then does it go back to the red light? If so your ps3 is knackered!

HI,
Things You'll Need:

* PlayStation 3
* External hard drive

Unplug any external hard drive that may be attached to the PS3.

Restart the PS3, including unplugging it and plugging it into the power supply again.

Format the file you are trying to save to be less than 2 GB in size. The main reason you are getting this error (game will not save) is due to the large file you tried to save.

Connect the external hard drive to your PS3 again and save the file. The error should not occur again.

PS3 does not read my disc. I was playing a game when the sound went out on my game, although i could still play the game. I restarted my PS3 and now it does not recognize games or movies.


have your Hard drive and all cables connected to your PS3 unplugged, after 2 to 3 minutes try to load a game again, if this does not fix the problem, probably the main problem is that the lens might be damage, bring it to a local electronics or computer repair shop and let them have a check on it.

Not loading games , ok with normal cds


Try resetting or restoring your system. WARNING: This will likely erase all of your saved games, demos, & etc. If you choose to do a restore then shut off your PS3, unplug it for a minute or 2, put the plug back in, hold down the power to you hear it beep 4 times: 1,1, 2 beeps, then let off the power button. You should get a screen that gives you options of restoring your console and etc. From there you can make the choice you desire. Sometimes it takes several tries of power-cycling your console to get it to do the proper beeps and then go to the screen with the options.

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 freezing


All you need to do is replace the harddrive and/or reformat the current one which will require removing it and using a PC to reformat it if it will read. If not , simply replacing it will work I would recommend an upgrade at that point as well if you would like. I upgraded to 250GB when this happened to me. System works just fine now.

Well try resetting the outlet that the PS3 is plugged into, unplugging everything from the PS3, and plug everything back in, it should work. If not, call Sony Customer Support and they will Fix your PS3 For you. Hope this helped.
