    I don't own a PS3 myself, but is there no Reset button (usually a little hole on the base) or a reset function in the installed software?

    Thanks:thumbsup:
    Is that not for a PSP ? or should i try & reset to original settings but will mean i will lose the whole setup, if i can avoid it then brill but if not then will have to.

    Sorry. I did put up PSP, but have sorted that now in my original post.

    From what I have glanced at, you might have to lose your setup.

    might be out of warranty (Mrs has bill & gone out). The stupid machine was in a box for 6 months so is nearly brand new & its the 60GB one that is now discontinued.A bit peed off :x

    ROFL!! I got a 60gb before they discontinued, I've never looked back since :roll:

    I got my code from IGN, they had some reserved for regular IGN users then the other half were reserved for paid IGN members. I was lucky enough to grab a code from the freebie one hehe..
    Its honestly such a great game, but because its in BETA just now alot of things are messing up eg. the online stuff atm. BUT when you do get online with someone else it is bloody amazing!! I can't wait til it comes out :gift:

    Btw it was me lol, I got annoyed though and left because games kept ending early etc..

    Have you tried cleaning the lens? I know its probably alot more tecnical than that but ours stopps reading discs sometimes and the Lens just needs cleened we chuck in a DVD cleaner and its fine. (the lens gets filthy cos the little one handles the discs)

    Spoke to a manager from a game store and they have had about 6 60gb's with the bluray drive problems and 1 40gb model

    I just got Sony to arrange to pick up my brothers 60GB that won't read Blu Rays today.

    They are delivering a recon'd one on thursday.

    They asked when I purchased it, but didn't ask where, or if I had a receipt.

    ^that was lucky.

    No luck with sorting out the disc reading problem.Phoned Sony monday morning & as above asked blindly when purchased, took details & told will receive replacment within 24 hours.
    Delivered today morning :thumbsup:.Have to say the customer service i recieved from them was excellent unlike Xbox 360 support. Xbox customer service is rubbish,their staff don't have a clue whats going on :x

    Yeah same for me. My PS3 stopped reading discs in March I think, I phoned Sony and had a refurbed PS3 sent to me within two days and they just took the broken one away in the same delivery. I was worried at first that the PS3 was a refurb, but it's October now and not had a problem since :thumbsup:
