Hey, bought my 20 GB PS3 on DEC 30 of 06, well never had a problem until i bought Oblivion, I own about 6 other games as well but to the point...after playing a couple ps2 games on the ps3, now when I insert any blu ray game or movie, brand new or scratched...it accepts the disc and the icon never shows up. This used to only happen with Blazing Angels but now no Blu Ray media is being read. I even opened up the good ol Talladega Nights movie and still no luck. Restored settings, reformatted, nothing. Still reads regular DVD movies and games and even ps1 games without a hitch... so I dunno... I guess I'm sending this back to Sony.
yes just waiting on a prepaid shipping box from them and they said it'll be 7 to 10 business days from when they recieve my unit to get another one..I can live that long I guess..I have music projects I haven't touched for almost a good year thanks to our beloved Sony! The universe is forcing me to do this! The laser has gone on strike from Blu Ray!
For what it's worth, this site is offering replacement PS3 laser lenses (obviously for those who have PS3's that no longer have a valid warranty). They offered PS3News.com a sample for review, but thus far none of our Staff have had a need for one... but as they were nice enough to offer, here is their link:
