Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 not reading discs

I have my PS3 since January 15. Yesterday I was playing Guitar Hero III and it was fine. I stopped the game and ejected the disc. Then I slipped in the Grand Theft Auto IV disc and the player didn't read it. I could see the moving icon at top right but it never recognized the disc. I pushed in a Blue Ray disc, a CD and a DVD disc and the player didn't read neither of them. I was using software version 2.41.

I can navigate through the menus, play stored music and pictures and change configurations. I even updated software successfully to version 2.42 yesterday night. But I can't play any disc. All my discs are brand new and the player is always covered against dust when not in use. I use it only for about 12 hours a week.

Ps3 guitar hero controller lights up two lights for controller numbers wont work any help?


From Activision's Support site:

The 2.80 firmware update causes the Guitar Hero instruments to connect to the Playstation with a high controller number. As a result Guitar Hero will not recognize the instrument at launch. To remedy this you will need to change the controller assignment in the Playstation 3 XMB system menu.

In the XMB go to Settings->Accessory Settings->Reassign Controllers. From here you will be able to change the controller number. Assign your first instrument to controller number 1 and increment the controller numbers for any additional instruments that you have connected. If you are using a microphone make sure to connect a standard PS3 controller before launching the game.

PS3 Guitar Hero World Tour Microphone stopped working


POSTED @ 1713 (GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) FEBRUARY 6, 2009 BY JOEBOBMCSLOB:


I know it's frustrating but here goes:

  1. Get a PS3 camera (PLAYSTATION EYE - is what mine says on the back). Not sure if it HAS to be the one from Sony (Playstation Eye) or if any other will work, but my PS3 camera from Sony I bought did work perfectly for this "crack"
  2. Unplug the Guitar Hero microphone and set it off to the side somewhere. IT MUST BE UNPLUGGED FROM THE PS3 FOR THIS TO WORK
  3. Go into the Guitar Hero game and plug in your PS3 camera, the blue light on the camera will come on
  4. Now plug in the Guitar Hero microphone
  5. Now go to the training mode, or start a band, or whatever you want and you will see that the vocals are enabled
  6. Simply unplug your PS3 camera and you can use the microphone that came with Guitar Hero, like you're supposed to be able to
I know this is a BAD, BAD, BAD experience for you to go through, but I think it had something to do with PS3 system updates after they released all the hardware and software for Guitar Hero III. Hopefully you didn't return all your gear already...

I don't work for Sony, I'm an electrical engineer/gamer hobby enthusiast.


Hope that helps!

Cheers!

No data for guitar hero III


I'm using the slim... maybe it is the type of memory card but guitar hero is the only game I've had a problem with. I just restarted the game and then beat it over again. After it said that there wasn't any data and I chose to make a new one, it said that there was data but it was corrupt. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but I haven't had any trouble since I started over the other one.

Can't load guitar hero III


This happened with my old 360 and GoW. Microsoft insisted it was the disc, but it wasn't. I ended up purposely giving it the 3 Red Rings so I could send the 360 of for repair. It worked fine when I received the console back from repair.
