PS3 wont play Black Ops

[ Edited ]
58 replies 4787 views Edited Jun 20, 2014

I have a 40gb PS3. 3 Months ago my ps3 would not play any games/movies. I then bought a laser off ebay for $50 and replaced it. I could now play all my games. I recently bought black ops and it wont play. The only way it works is if I play another game first such as modern warfare 2, for around 5-10 mins, and then load black ops. All my other games ( NBA 08, Madden 08, GTA4, Blu Rays, Modern Warfare 1/2) work, only issue is with black ops.  I have exchanged black ops 3 times so its not the disc.

 

I have tried the maxell blu ray lens cleaner, but that hasn't done anything. 

 

Anyone know what it could be exactly, all my games work fine on the first try with no freezing, but the only way black ops works is if I play another disc game first for around 5-10 mins. 

 

Did I buy a cheap laser, or is my laser going to die.

Thanks!   ~lovely1rainbow

that is pretty weird maybe it is the lens dying on you, I had the same problem on a different console a couple of years ago, my gamecube would play all my old games except new ones then eventually the lens died and wouldnt play anything else.

this is exactly what is happening to me! Its is so annoying and the only game that doesn't register is my brand new BLACK OPS! All other games run in perfect ps3 fashion. However my console is one of the new ones and everything is factory, so i don't think its your laser, it may just be a problem with the game and an update is needed. I called sony support and I'm still under warranty so Ill see how it plays out and weather I have to have them look into it.

Same here! My copy played fine for the first three days and then I went to play zombies and it froze my system on the joining match screen then when i turn it back on i cannot choose anything on multiplayer (Core, Barebones, etc.) and cannot even join a match on zombies or load community videos and it wont even load into the first level in campaign mode.... so what the hell treyarch.... maybe you shouldnt have taken over and left it to unfun-ity ward!
