Playstation3 problems


You need to first clean the drive with a dvd lens cleaner, it's relatively harmless your your disk drive, and make sure that the disc you are trying to read is clean, with no blemishes or smear marks. If these do not work for you, your drive needs to be replaced.

Have you cleaned the disk and the disk drive? If yes, you drive is worn out and needs to be replaced, if not, try those steps first.

Hello,
it seems that you have fallen victim to the totally not awsum wickedness of what I think is a dirty laser lens. I know that youtube.com has many great vids telling you exactly how to clean your ps3 laser lens and get your system up and running again.
I hope I have helped, let me know how it goes!! thanks

Playstation3 is not loading games at all


I had a similar problem. My PS3 did not load the disk based games. Those disk based games were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine. Also downloaded games were working ok.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed the DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

PS3 Loading game Problems


try picking up a lens cleaning disk. they have brushes on the bottom that clean your lens. you put the alcohol water solution on the rushes and then insert it into the drive of the ps3. that may work if you have the same problem with all your disks. if you don't have a problem with all your disks, it may be that your savegame is corrupt and you need to start a new one.
