Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Okay, I was playing COD4 one night and logged on to play online. Got into a room and was about to start playing. Got to the load up screen and then all of the sudden my ps3 froze. So I did what every person would do, I turned the console off. Now when I turned it back on the unit would not recognize that their was a disc in it. Now most people would think the ps3 would give me a disc read error but no in this case, it actually does not even recognize I put a game in it. Does this sound like something other people may have? I have tried putting blu-rays in it and dvds and different games and still does not acknowledge I put anyting in it. I can still do everything else on it though like log onto the internet and visit the playstation store. Someone please help me.
You have a (all too common) laser problem and need to get it serviced or replaced. This is happening to every 1 out of 10 PS3 units. The lasers are getting harder to get, and this (like gasoline) is causing the price to rise. I would call Sony first though. http://www.us.playstation.com/support/ps3
One person told me that if all else fails, to reset the system defaults. CAUTION: do not click on the "Reset PS3 System" !! It will wipe your hard drive.
Go to System Settings >> Restore System Defaults >>Yes. I have not been lucky enough to see this work, but it's worth a try.
I hope this helps
