Sony charges 150$ plus s&h.
A new blu ray drive is 125$ if you know how to do it yourself it takes 10min to fix at a slow pace rather then the sony 3 month wait!

Ps3 not registering disc's


Hi there my PS3 experienced a similar fault (40gb) & I would recomend you contact Sony PS3 Helpline as explained below.
This fault was fixed by contacting Sony Helpline directly & explaining the fault (laser/hard drive damaged). They agreed to fix this fault free of charge & honoured my warranty as I bought this system in January 2007 by faxing them proof of purchase. They arranged to collect my PS3 via courier & advised that it will be returned within approx 3 weeks along with an extended 3 month warranty. I have to say that Sony Helpline were very helpful & their customer assistance was excellent & if your PS3 does breakdown I would recomend that you contact the Helpline first to enquire if they can assist with the problem before seeking to have this fixed at a potential cost of £100.00 upwards by independant PS3 fixers.

Ps3 disc not reading


Friend's PS3 had the same problem. His unit is no longer under Sony's warranty so I've recently fixed his by buying a replacement laser lens from Ebay. It roughly cost about 50-65 US dollars, depending on whether you order the lens only or one with a deck; you will need to replace the old one with the new one. However if your unit is till under Sony's warranty, i suggest sending it back to them for repairs.
