This seems to be a problem with GT6 that many people have experienced. Maybe stick to 5 or find a way to play Forza.

SOURCE: PS3 wont play load games, have blue ray and normal dvd play

You can try cleaning the laser lens with a cd / dvd lens cleaner cd.

This usually doesn't work, your problem is 98% of the time caused by a Sony defect in the blu-ray drive itself.

The drive will gradually get worse and worse.

If your system is under warranty then by all means get it repaired by Sony for free otherwise you're looking to pay $150 for Sony to repair their own mistake.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

They'll probably suggest another System Restore, Firmware update and a 100 other solutions that won't work because it's hardware related.

Sorry for the bad news.

SOURCE: PS3 wont load or play games, Just a blank screen.....

Try playing a Demo game, if you dont have any download it from playstation network. The point is just to force the sytem to play games and if you notice, movies and games are listed under a different folder in the icon's list, so playing a demo game will force the system to play the game and you should be able to play your games fine after that,. Thing is that a game's info might've got stuck in freeze mode when the system was shut off unproperly while a game disk was still inside, that's all. Good luck, dont wanna see any PS3 comrades suffering the unspeakable horridness of not been able to play games. Be strong my friend.

Granttirismo does not open on racetracs keep on loading but does not open


Hello educare have and welcome to FixYa. I see you are having issues with loading your game data in Gran Turismo 5 for the PS3. Sadly it appears that your game data has been corrupted and the data will have to be reinstalled but before we go with that method lets try this first.

1- Go to the Gran Turismo Main Menu and select Options on the lower right half of the screen.

2- Now you will have to scroll down to the bottom of the Options Menu until you see Advanced Options and select it.

3- Now you will see an option to Salvage Data. Select it.

4- Your PS3 will now attempt to recover your data. If the screen after a few moments says Data Recovered then you are good to go however if it says Data Recovery Failed we now have to take more drastic options.

5- Quit your game and return to the XMB menu.

6- Go to Game Data located in the Game Data section.

7- Find and select your Gran Turismo 5 file and press the SQUARE button.

8- You will see the option to delete the file. Select that option.

9- Now we have just deleted your Game Data file but not your Game Save Data file.

10- Return to your game and then retry loading your tracks. If all works out your tracks should load and all of your car collection data and profile will still be fully intact.

I hope you found this information useful and I wish you the very best of luck educare and thank you for using FixYa.

I have ps3 and am playing gran turismo 5 which is a 3d compatible game. I got it hooked up to my new 3d tv but its not allowing me to convert to 3d in the game settings. Why?


Are you sure that your PS3 is connected to your TV with a HDMI cable? Make sure that the PS3 is connected to the TV via a HDMI 1.3 cord and recheck your settings on the XMB and on the game itself.

I put in the game Gran Turismo 5 into my PS3 and instead of loading in the game the screen pops up and says (Accessing game data. Please do not switch off the system while the HDD access indicator is...


This means it's loading your Game Data. There's nothing wrong with this appearing on the screen, it's common and simply indicates that it's loading your last saved state.
If it's stuck on that for a long period of time and not taking you into the game, then you need to go into the Saved Data Utility on your PS3 and delete your saved data file for Gran Turismo 5. Something might be corrupt.
Gran Turismo 5 uses a lot of the PS3's power, so having longer than average load times doesn't mean something is wrong with your PS3.

When I play the Full Version of Gran Turismo 5, after 30 mins, the con sole beeps 3 time, then shuts down, if i play other game this never happen , only with Gran Turismo 5 did I encounter this, what does...


Sometime this can be a over heating problem especially with the fat ps3's and if you leave it off for a while and re-locate it somewhere where it can breath it can be ok. It's also a good idea to clean your ps3 to get rid of dust build up to help with cooling. Worse case scenario this could be a lead up to the YLOD problem.

--YLOD--
LEDs at the front of the console when attempted to turn on goes green, then yellow, back to green, then beeps three times and blinks red. This then causes a PS3 to be unusable and is effectively dead.

Do what i mentioned above with cleaning and put in an open space then run a different game for atleast 45mins see how you go.

If the game runs ok put in gran turismo 5 and play again. Let me know how you get on :)

Thanks.

I had a gran turismo 4 that went out so I bought new and it does not act now, even though it is quite new


do you have a slimline ps2? the problem is more than likely with the drivers in your console. do all your other games work just fine? only gt4 thats not working? gt4 is a duel layered disc unlike most games.
my console won't play it either. plays all other games, even ones on the blue discs wiv no problem.

Cant play turismo 5 only on line


All of the new games try to connect to the internet as soon as the game loads. It's like all the silly errors you get when you turn your computer on without the internet. My ps3 automatically connects me to the internet as soon as I turn it on. You shouldn't be limited to playing online like warhawks. I think it's just an annoyance.
