Hello,
You probably just need a brand new laser. I will provide you with links for a step by step guide to replace the laser, and various sites where you may purchase a new laser at a decent price. First, you need to insert a disk and look at the top right corner of your TV for a little swirling circle. If that is not there you may need to open your system and make sure the people that "fixed" it plugged the Blu-ray player cables back in. If not just reattach the cables. There are only 2, 1 black and gray power cable and 1 silver flex cable. If it still doesn't work then replace the laser. Below you will find the links mentioned above.

If you replace the motherboard, pretty much the DVD needs to be replaced as well. Now if you sum it up, it nearly costs like a new unit. Instead of investing money on repair, just buy a new unit since your device is already out of warranty. With regard to the DVD, you can try cleaning the lens using dvd lens cleaner.

My PS3 does not play DVD's but it works fine with everything else, what wrong?? Also I should mention that I have a Backwards Compatible 60GB PS3...Again everything works but when I put in a DVD it either...


Many users also reported their PS3 won't play DVD or game disc, or can't eject out : The bluray drive need some fixes or replaced. If you send back to Sony or other people to repair, it's just waste your time and money - because the same symptoms will be back again. The best way is learning the repair skills of yourself. There is a PS3 DIY Repair Guide - It's video and text guide that let you know how to open the console, make some minor fixes and recover it at last. The author show his professional repair skills that let you step by step to hands on the repair job. Don't worry your ability to do such things : You will be amazing at last that you can do that yourself. The repair guide cost you not much but helpful. The best part is you can help your friends too!

Ok ive been playing Modern Warfare2 lately. when i turn my console on it doesnt always play the game. it shows in the console play dvd where the game should show up to be played


There's two possible issues. If it's only not reading MW2, t's the game disc. But don't throw it away if it's scratched. sellitbroken.com will give you good money for it. Sell it to them.

If that's not the problem and it continues to do this with all your games. It's your disc drive that is the issue. You can try to fix this yourself, but the it will be difficult. I would suggest contacting Microsoft and sending it back to them to get it fixed.

When i put a game in it says unplayable disc


This could just be a dirty lens, try a cd or dvd cleaning disk, and check your games are in tip top condition the 360 hates damaged discs, otherwise you may have a faulty spindle magnet or the laser could be on its way, the spindle is cheap and easy to fix (does it eject the discs) if so it's more than likely your spindle. if its your lens then a new dvd drive can be bought for around £20 online. If its under warranty just send it back

Xbox shows that the game disc is unreadable whay shall i do?


Alot of people think this is because of the disc or the DVD driven when in fact most cases reveal that it is the receptors on the back of the DVD drive overheating and that is what causes the error.

You can send it ni and get it fixed or use a good guide to get it fixed fast

Disc Reader not reading disc


You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!

Please help im in need and board


Hi, the discs will spin ??? The bubble in top right corner don't stop spinning ???
If you answered NOT the first and YES the second question ...... Then you probably have a defective laser lens like my 40 GB purchased in 2008-Nov.
You have 2 choices: 1- Send it for repair (With warranty) 2- Fix it your self.
It's no complicated, I did it. Just buy a laser replacement and do it. Look for videos in Youtube.com and will see that it's so easy.

I have the system won't read disc error


This is a hardware failure. Sending it Nintendo is the only option. Unless you think you have the skills to repair it yourself. Here is the link to Nintendo
http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/repair_options.jsp
if you want to repair it yourself. You will need a new wii dvd drive. Any version works.
