    thankyou for your help but i bought it before it came out here, therefore its no longer under warranty (last christmas) and even if it was its from japan and i understand there is no global customer service, so im not so sure how good sony's replacement service is, they won't touch mine and there still sony, thats the chance i took i suppose, thanks again m8.

Its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. i'm getting my new one tomorrow. upset it broke but sony's replacement service is very good.

Your PlayStation 3 most likely needs a new laser. Over time dust can collect in and around the console and can cause the laser to become dirty and scratched. Contact Sony to see if your unit is still under warranty.

If your unit is not under warranty, then go to We are a video game console repair company and we can get you back up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email us at [email protected] or call toll free at 888-389-3038.
