Forgot to add when i switch to default game option file or keep it lightly edited (without team kits etc , player names , skill cards etc -any PES player will know what i'm talking update ) the problem disappear that;s why i think it has something to do with graphic card -I'm not an expert

PS3 Slim 160GB, updated to 4.25 from 4.21 (I always grab updates because I guess I'm a sucker).

 

My PS3 is about 1 year old, I've never had an issue with it at all, and I keep it well maintained and in good running condition. I was playing games fine as recently as two nights ago. Last might my fiance turned it on to play something, but the CFW came up so we did the install. Now it won't read discs. Any discs, whether it's games, movies, music, anything. The discs come in and out without issue, but they don't spin while inside at all.

 

I've backed up my save data and I'm contemplating doing a system restore or something to see if I can get it to work, but I'm somewhat wary as I've been reading some posts from people with similar issues who bricked their PS3's trying to fix it and I'd almost rather wait and see if Sony takes responsibility and releases a firmware update that fixes this.

 

It's a wired connection with the original hard drive.

 

I really don't think they can say that this is all a coincidence.

  • Slim, 320 GB, default HDD
  • Wireless
  • I think from 4.20

Reading a replies from this post it seems I maybe be better off. The only problem I have facing is the shuttering audio. Tried everything from replacing the HDMI cable to changing the Audio Output settings. Not as bad as the 'blackouts' other users have been having but it's **bleep** annoying nonetheless.

I have two separate 60 gb big ps3 with a wireless connection on both. Both were recently just bought used and worked fine when I received them but when I updated them they begin to malfunction. One will not even show ps3 games and will only play ps2 games now and the other will not go past the first  thirty seconds of reading a game. Please fix this update soon. It is ruining my gaming.

Is there any way this update could have actually fried my blu-ray drives?

UK player with 320GB CECH-3003B slim, wired to cable modem updated from 4.21

I downloaded Armoured Kill for BF3 and it worked fine then updated to 4.25 and it started freezing during one match in 5 then every single match now it freezes at the loading screen. Medal of honour freezes now as well but GTA4 works ok.

Trying to play BF3 during the double XP weekend my PS3 just froze up about 10 times in a row before I gave up.

I'm starting to think the laser is faulty as my old slim 120GB PS3 used to freeze up during GT5 races until the laser was replaced under extended warranty then it worked fine.

So joystick_warrior have any idea how much longer this will take? There's a lot of big title games that's been popping up like Boarderlands 2 and Resident Evil 6 that are around the corner and I prefer to have a non digital copy... Also just wanted to add when I updated I had my game inside the system just in case this had anything to do with not beingable to read discs anymore.
