that happend to me before i was playing gta then it froze i reset it then the disc icon did'nt come up so i waited for about 4 hours then it still did'nt come up so i called sony i gave the ps3 to them then i got it back it works fine now still does
Mine just did the same thing - played black ops for 1 hour then the sound went off, system froze, restarted it now it wont read any disc (audio, blu-ray or a game) - have tried cleaning drive etc, no joy. Just fitted a replacement drive which is tested working and my system will still not read discs !!!
I need some help please, I am currently formatting the hard drive as I notice that this has worked for some people , if this doesn't work then I am out of ideas.
It is a 3 year 60Gb console which hasn't missed a beat for 3 years till I played COD - is this a know problem ?
I guess my ps3 can be added to the many failures I'm seeing. It's Only 10 months old. Was playing BlackOps when it froze and now it won't read any games. Everything else about it works fine-even plays dvd's. Called Sony and they walked me thru resetting system files. That didn't work and they said all I can do is pay 99 dollars for them to send a box to me to ship it in for repair. Could be two weeks or more .Really sucks! Just got GT5 too. If it is that BlueRay eye that blew would it still play dvd's I don't have any BlueRay discs to try. Those of you that still have a working ps3 are lucky. This problem is all over the internet and with the money these things cost I think Sony needs to make it right with people. I mean like a recall or a credit toward a new one
I have sort of the same problem....
After a few months of owning the console, it started to not read some games (ex: MGS4, UFC Undisputed 2010, Dead Space), but would read 98% of the games i put in flawlessly, so, i didn't worry about it to much, because after ejecting the discs that it wouldn't read and putting them back in a few times, they would work. fast forward about 16 months. The system starts to do the same thing to other games to such as CoD BOps, and MW2, but would work after less tries of the ejection thing. Now, i can't get it to even read a DVD, and when it reads a game disc, it starts up, sits at a black screen for about 30 seconds, and then says that there was a failiure during the start operation, and to try agian. as any of you can tell, this is really f**king irritating. I have a 250 gig slim, with a 2 year warranty. As you may have already guessed, the warranty is stil active. I would call and have it replaced or refurbished, but i don't want to lose all of the games and addons i have gotten. i will try to go into recovery mode, and pick option #3, but if that doesn't work, i will either reply agian, or call Sony. if anyone has anyother ideas, please message me on my PSN, cause this is the first time if have been to the forum in about 6 months, and i doubt i will come agian anytime soon
