Hello,
When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser diode has blown out. 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.

Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help


Hi there, this is because the actual laser needs replacing, not the disc spinner motor. With the PS3 the laser reads the disc data type, whether it be a DVD, game , audio cd or blu ray movie. It then spins the disc up to the required read speed. When the laser is faulty is cannot read the disc type so will not spin at all.

Hope this helps

Ps3 doesn't read the disc. i insert the disc and doesn't attemp to read it


Take a can of compress air and blow air into the vents as well as the cd area... dust can build up on the laser eye. Also try the following... Try different types of disc... blu ray, dvd, etc... see if the problem is global or just one type of disc. if cleaning it doesn't work more then likely you will have to replace the blu ray player

It freezes during a game when you die or load a new level


Try cleaning the disc and then cleaning the blu-ray laser using a lens cleaner. What is most likely happening is that the disc cannot be read resulting in your Playstation crashing.

PS3 - Game crash followed by disc read error


The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

Ps3 wont read disc


First you need to verify that all types of discs won't read. there are 3 types that a ps3 will play CD, DVD and BluRay. If none of them work then your laser is either dirt and needs to be cleaned or is bad. If say dvd and cd works than the BluRay part of the lens needs to be calibrated which requires takign the system apart an voiding warranties.
