Found 20th Jun 2010
I bought a second hand one was advertised as working fine. It turns on fine & thats about it lol. When I put a game in, nothing. I am pretty familiar with the main menu as I have a psp. There is no loading noise, no icon appears on the screen to indicate a game not a sausage.

I tried 3 games. I noticed that the game boxes said to use a sixasis controller (I only have two cheap wired ones)

Surely it would still load?

Is there anything I can do before opening a dispute?
It came with the red yellow and white cables for connecting to tv. Thanks.

Have you tried to connect it to the internet? it may need updating ??

The laser might be broken, if it is the game wouldn't even appear but everything else will appear fine. (eg internet saved demos/games)

yes I updated it, can connect it to the net etc but nothing happens when I put in a game. I managed to eventually get an old dvd to appear on the menu but just the once. I am so gutted.

You can get laser's really cheap just need to find out which model you have. Prices range from $60 to $42 delivered.

The PS3 has suffered a BRD - Bluray Death

Try a DVD in it, these should still work.

Sounds like the drive is dead.
Don't fart around with it, contact the seller for a refund.
