13 replies 20053 views Edited Feb 11, 2008
Two days ago my ps3 stoped playing the games i put into it. The icon of the game wont show up, all that shows up when you go to the game icon is, saved data utility, game data utility, and memory card utility. If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know, thanks.

Glad that worked for you..  Unfortunately it did not work in my case.... wish it did.   Oh also to the OP you could also do this, with no discs inside the PS3's drive hold down the eject button for 12-15 seconds.  This will re adjust the motor and the lense and could work.... That also did not work for me, but it could help to know..

 

You know what they say... "And now you know, and knowing is half the battle.... Gi Joe.."  sorry thought that help.... trust me I needed a laugh when my PS3's blu-ray drive died.
