Hello. Try the solutions on the link below.

OR

You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free or replace your unit.. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first. If you know how to do it yourself, you will need part KES-400A if it is not spinning. If it's spinning and not reading the laser may be dusty or need replacement. The laser by it's self is part number is KES-400AAA. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.

You can purchase the KES-400A replacement lense and replace it yourself by looking at some videos on youtube.

I want to play duplicate dvds on my ps2 but i am not able to do what should i do can i do it at home


  1. If you have backed up a game for ps2, you're going to need a mod chip or swap magic for your ps2 so it can read the disc, so first things first, BUY A MODIFICATION TOOL!!!
  2. 2You should try using Swap Magic, because it's the easiest, and you won't need to modify your PlayStation too much.
  3. 3But if you use SWAP MAGIC, you will also need a special mod chip, SLIDE TOOL, or a FLIP TOP COVER, you can learn more about those on the swapmagic website
  4. 4Read directions on the installation of mod chip, and swap magic before you do anything (you don't want to mess up, or else your ps2 won't work properly).
  5. 5Install your modchip/flip top cover/slide tool. (This is important, because it allows the disc to be removed and "swapped" without the PlayStation knowing).
  6. 6Follow directions that came with your swap magic discs, and you're basically ready to go!
  7. 7HOW TO USE SWAP MAGIC,Note you must have Swap magic 3.6 to boot on slimline ps2 and you need to do a none solder modding(no soldering)

Purchase a flip top (recommended). Let's assume you have the flip top and a copied ps2 game
  1. 1Now Insert the swap magic disc into the ps2,
  2. 2Press power on button until screens comes up.
    • With option that says load cd open the top cover of the flip top.
    • And take out the cd when it stops spinning.
  3. 3Now insert your Copied game and click Load CD.
  4. 4its that easy

My ps3 wont play the game automatically when a disc is inserted. it goes to a multimedia menu when it comes on


Typically ps3s do not launch straight into the game. You do have to go through the menu and select the games portion, and then the game disc. This should launch your game. I have to do it every time I want to play a game.

Cannot read any discs. when disc is inserted the disc is spinning but never get the loading icon and disc never appears on menu. Have tried all the hidden menu options and none worked

If you have tried several disks and they will not read this means that ether the laser is dirty or there is something wrong with it. If you are still in warranty with Sony I would contact them on getting your PS3 drive repaired.

If you are not in warranty then I would recommend that you take the system to your local repair shop to have them clean or replace the drive as needed. Note if have worked on computers before then you should be able to try to clean the laser your self. If you would like the process for this let me know. As for replacing the laser if you do try it your self you have to make sure that you get the right one because not all PS3s used the same Blu-ray laser.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

My games wont read in my console


Hi, it sounds like your laser might be dirty or needs replaced. First try to blow out the DVD drive with some canned air or with an air compressor. If that dosen't help then your laser is more than likely burned out, and needs replaced. This is a very common problem with the PS2s and PS3s.

Says disc could not be read


Hi, your PS2's laser may need to be cleaned or replaced. This is a very common problem with the PS2s and PS3s. First I would try to clean the laser with some canned air and try to blow out the DVD drive and see if that helps at all. If it dosen't then you more than likely need to have your laser replaced.

Ps2 is not reading disc


Hi,

Steps to Try:-
1) ensure the disks underside is clean of Fingerprints/Scratches et,c.
2) Clean the laser head, with a cd/dvd disk cleaner.
3) Try different types of Software/Media i.e CD/DVD et,c. this will determine the lasers strength, or whether it,s completely worn out.
4) Finally try different types of Game, Most PS2s play silver underside disks ( Platinum ) And Black ( Dark DVDs )

Hope this helps, guide you.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Disc read error


Sounds like a disk read error alright. Try replacing the laser eye device in the PS2. I know a good place with pretty low costing parts for PS2s. RichsPSXParts. If not the laser eye try the ribbon cable between the hard drive and the laser eye. Those I'd think be the most obvious first checks. I'm not 100% on it since every one I know whos PS2 does that wont let me look at it instead the throw it away. Such a waste.

Playstation 2 comsole making strange noises


there is this kind of disc that has little brushes on it for cleaning lens in dvd players, cd players, computers, basicly anything with disc player of some sort and it works great for PS2s (I have used it on mine and my freind's.) I can't remember the name of my cd now now and I can't find it but you can probley find one in most computer stores or wal-marts. but it is posible that the there is something wrong with the motor/gear assebley in the drive on your ps2 (which the cd wouldn't fix) but that is probly not the case since it plays games alright. Good Luck! I Hope You Get The Problem Fixed!!
