Sounds like it could be failure of the Blu-ray drive. A friend of mine had the same issue.

Contact Sony support and if it's under warranty they will fix it free of charge (here in Australia they do anyway).

My 80g playstation 3 is not reading games nor movie disc


i had exactly the same problem with my PS3 i phoned up sony and they told me to do a full format which can be found on the home menu under settings and format. MAKE SURE BEFORE YOU DO THE FULL FORMAT BACKUP ANYTHING YOU HAVE SAVED TO THE PS3 INCLUDING GAME SAVES AS THIS WILL ALL BE WIPED FROM THE PS3'S HARDDRIVE.

the full format takes a couple of hours and once this is done you can try a disc (game or movie). this may make it work although with mine it didn't. i phoned up again and they said they would replace the PS3 as it was still under warranty.

i was told that the full format is the last option before replacing the console, so if your out of warranty period you''ll have to hope it works.

My ps3 keeps freezing up. i bought it less than a year ago


Does your PS3 have the latest update? If you don't have your PS3 connected to the Internet you will need to go to the Sony website and download it to your computer. From there you can burn it to a CD or a Memory Stick to transfer the install file to the PS3. Here is the link to the 2.52 update...

GENERAL QUESTION FOR PLAYSTATION 3 40G VRS 60 OR 80G....


No the ps3 is compatible for ps2 games NOT ALL OF THEM!
The only difference is the special editions like the spiderman one the mgs special edition ect... OR if you have a 20gb ps3 it does not have internal net or the 1080i feature!

A new hard drive and 15 minutes and you can update your ps3 to 120gb 250gb and so on!
