i wish i didn't have to pay £130 for a problem i absolutely did not cause as my disc is always in my console as i only play fifa 12.
after this problem happened it feels like Life is Trolling on Me as i have such bad luck
I feel for you. It sucks when things break out of warranty. You might be able to sell it off to a shop, and use the money for a new one In the meantime, here's a nice picture!

my ps3 is bust it takes like an hour or two just to start a game and plus most the time while waiting for the game to loading i hear like two ticks and then i hear the noise of my game coming out of the disc drive but it doesn't and then the blue disc doesn't pop up.

I've had the exact same problem with a ps3 40gb, for what i have gathered , it seems to be a problem with the gpu not with the drive, (i formatted my drive 3 times thinking it was that, rebuild Database, rebuild ps3 system and nothing worked) I was not able to play any demos downloaded from the network, XMB loaded fine but when it wanted to load the game it would give me a black screen. It would take the PS3 to be on for like an hour or two, and that is because it need it to heat well to play the games, so i called around a few places and for what it seems is that it is about to fail, take it to a ps3 store or a technician they might need to do a reballing, or heat it up to stregthen the soldering on the gpu or something like that. well i live in Peru and it is a lot easier to get it fixed here, only 50-100 us Dollars, if they need to replace the gpu. good luck my friend, i will be doing this this weekend, and i will let you know how it went before you do any thing.
