I foned sony custermer service thy said you have 2 send it in for a repair on the lens because the lens is broken which will cost you about £100 atleast. also i searched online and it said buy a new ps3 lens and open your ps3 and fit it yourself its cheaper but you have to handle all the parts on the inside of your ps3.

Playing MLB the Show on PS3. Game loads fine, franchise I've been playing loads fine. But once I try to play a game, bar starts as game loads then game cuts off and goes to main PS3 screen.


Is your CD dirty or does it have any cracks? It might just be the problem. Otherwise, it could be corrupt game data. Clean the disc, if it still doesn't work I'd try deleting the game utility data and re-downloading it. Hope this helps in some way or another.

PS3 not loading games, CD's or Blueray discs. Have swapped over blue ray drive and still not loading so we know it is not a drive fault. Restored PS3 to factory settings and still not loading discs. Blue...


The problem itself has not been solved but after more investigation I have found out that this is currently un-repairable.
This is because the console itself has a hardware blueray drive failure due to manditory firmware 3.00 released by Sony and there is currently no fix in place.
From what I can see on the net it looks like Sony maybe being sued over this issue. Sony has also stated that they are now looking into this firmware update to see what went wrong, they have not yet made any further comment.

PS3 Error message...


This is the error code for disk errors: "An error occurred during the start operation. (8001002B)". If the disc is clean, maybe the laser is dirty. Use a lens cleaning CD to give the laser a clean (cheap to buy). You can also try deleting the temporary game data (using Game Data Utility) and reinstall the game.

I have a ps3 and it will play any other games but cod 5


This is a tough one to diagnose, I'd recommend trying to clean the blu-ray drive with a cd / dvd cleaner cd.

Try this first, since it's easy to do and we'll go from there.

is it playing bluray discs? if not its a problem with the last download. It'll still play cd's ps2 games just not ps3 games or bluray, sorry to say but its a job for sony, call up your local help line(number can be found on the website) and they will arrange a replacement or to repair yours. There service is normally good. Hope this helps.

Return under warranty.
the blu ray laser will have been slightly overheated and as a result will need to be replaced.
