When I put a game in, it reads for about ten seconds then makes the eject sound. Sometimes the game loads normally. Usually it makes this sound. Any idea? Solutions? The system is a little over a year old.

I finally got the YLOD today, after 6 years Hopefully I can try to fix it instead of having to get a new one.

I've had issues galore in connecting online particularly with Black Ops II...the server message keeps saying 22.0.-1 and unable to connect to the server at this time...what is up with this? What can I do? I've already reset the modem and even tried adjusting the modem settings but still nada...

I highly recommend baking your board. The reflow really isn't all that great.

Yeah that's what I read. I won't be able to try until tomorrow though.

If I can't get it to work, is there at least a way to get the disc out?

I use those very thin and completely flat pliers to pull the discs out.

I'll see what I can do. Of course it had to be Hitman Absolution that was in there.

If I can't fix it, is there anyway to get my data back? I never used anything to back it up.

There is no way to get the lost data. Any other PS3 will only reformat the drive and will not recognize it unless you do.

Well I tried to do it, but didn't take everything completely apart as I've seen done and it didn't work. I contacted Sony about them repairing it instead.

The disk space on my 120Gb slim is almost used up, but I really don't have that many games installed in the PS3. I am just wondering if anyone know what happened to all the disk space? Or where I can look and clear up some unnecessary files or what not?

Noted, and that's where I feel lost. Per my calculation (just add, right? ), I don't think I have more than 60 or even 70Gb's worth of files / games installed. And, sure, I understand the system itself takes up like up to 10Gb's worth of disk space, it still shows I've used nearly 90Gb of disk space.

Default Cat5 wire question...

I just got internet back at my place. I have at&t uverse high speed. I don't know a lot about this type of wire other than it is better just like hdmi is best. My question is would I notice the difference in speed if I have them set up a dedicated line with it? Right now its sharing the house line and is not having issues. I won't be charged since I am a new customer. My current speed is 9Mbps download and 898Kbps upload. I didn't know where to ask this on the forum so if this gets moved that's alright. Thanks for any info given

Here's a good little trick, not sure if it's been posted in here before. I made a new thread for it too since I see a lot of people over the net complainabout not being able to download patches in the background, so here's how.

One feature PS3 gamers have often lobbied for is the ability to download game patches, which can often be large files, in the background while still using the system to play or watch other content.

However, by manipulating the PlayStation Plus Automatic Update feature you can now download game patches in the background, and new system information screens displayed during the process suggest this is a planned feature which may be officially implemented in a future firmware update.


First, load the game in question and press OK when prompted with the latest update, then hit Circle to cancel the download.

From the XMB go into [System Settings] > [Automatic Update] > [On], set the update period to the current time, ensure Download Game Patches is ticked then select OK and turn off the PS3. It should turn back on immediately to run the auto-update, at this point wait a minute or so then press Circle to exit the auto-update and check your [Network] > [Download Management] list.


The patch data should appear in your list of background downloads here with a generic controller icon, and you can now play or watch any content that allows background downloads while the patch is pulled down.


You can even play the game which you're currently downloading the patch for, after seeing this new system information screen.


Click past that screen and you can get into the game, though you'll be restricted to offline play in the same way you normally are if you decline an update patch when prompted.


Once the patch has finished downloading in the background it will appear as an icon under Game on the XMB, which you can then select to install in the same way as a standard game downloaded from the Store.


Alternatively, load the game the patch relates to once it's downloaded and you'll be automatically prompted with another new system information screen to install the update before playing.

So there we have it, background downloading of patches, meaning large updates or slow internet connections should no longer get in the way of your gaming sessions.

I wish when posts got deleted, mods would at least leave a marker. It's so confusing otherwise.
