NEVER EVER TURN YOUR SYSTEM OF WHEN YOU ARE PLAYING ONLINE AND THE GAME FREEZES!!!...

Just try to wait for 30 - 50 sec.
If that does not work than EJECT THE DISC AND THAN TURN OF THE SYSTEM, It has nothing to do with your PS3, Check your connection status and reset all your internet settings BUT NOT THE SYSTEM ITSELF.

If this still doesnt work than there's something wrong with the disc.

No disc drive


This is a very common problem.

It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.


You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.

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.

Game disc is stuck in cosole


You will have to take a screwdriver to it, and open up the PS3, and remove the CD... once you do that make sure the console will stay on without the cd in the drive, do your update under systems menu then try ANOTHER game

PS3 froze while playing a BD, then it would not rcognize anything


Hi there,
Most PS3 systems end up doing this due to an over heating of the laser lens. Let me explain: The laser lens in the PS3 is made to read mainly Blue Ray games. The movies need to be read faster than the game discs which causes it to work harder thus the problem arising.
Sometimes, your lucky enough for this to only be a dirty lens problem due to rental movies which are most of the time, if not always, dirty.
Have you tried a lens cleaner kit?
This is the CD-ROM with a small brush on it to clean your laser lens head.
This problem has happened to me in the past and this solved the problem.
It is a common problem for any lens reading console.
Regards,
