Why does my games not load up right away?

So I gotten a PlayStation 3 that an 80GB with Backwards compatibility that was tested, once I got it in the mail and set up, I tried putting in my PS2 games in it but nothing popped up but the little circle on the right hand top corner, so I thought okay it’s reading the game but nothing happened I’ve waited for 20 minutes and nothing showed up that said PS2 game or something so I thought maybe I’ll test it with a PS3 game but even that didn’t show up the screen didn’t display the background to show what game is in or anything! Even put in a Blu-ray Disc in doesn’t show anything but the loading clock! Before anyone ask yes I have always clean my game Disc and DVD plus Blu-rays to make sure it’s not bad and one of the PS3 games I got is brand new! I’m just not sure and I just need some help with this because I’m not sure what to! I was thinking of going inside it to check it like maybe the blu-ray player is bad or something but I’m just not sure, if anyone could give me some advice, I would really be appreciated.

I just hope I didn’t do anything bad because I’ve reset the console and updated it as I connected it to my WiFi and I hope I didn’t break anything.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hey Katie,

Did you see the console working before you bought it? If not there’s a small chance this was simply a scam. If you bought it from eBay or such first thing i’d do is contact the seller and ask for refund because it could’ve been damaged during shipping. If the seller is not responding I’d contact PayPay. Let’s suppose you can’t get your refund or replacement. Updating the console does not effect your drive, even if it did, it wouldn’t disable the drive completely. Take the console apart and see if all cables are connected properly, one or two might come loose duding shipping. I’d check that first. Next, there’s a drive fuse inside which sometimes goes bad. You can google it to see the location.

I don’t think I can get a refund because it’s been 30 days and I even tried to ask what was going on but nothing, I took it apart and it’s looks good like all the parts are connected and I can still hear the fan running well beside the fact there dust everywhere but I clean that up and can you explain drive fuse I’m a little confused like the disc drive or something?
