Re: playstation 3 laser problems
I think not. Its not a laser problem but a disk problem otherwise it wouldn't even start reading at all. See what i mean. Its the game bro and if you still have a receipt of some sort or you go to back to the place you got it from you should have no problem getting another copy of the game. Just explain to them that the game is defective. You can take that to the bank. Le me know how that turns out buddy.
Is your disk scratched? If the laser was damaged or dirty it probably wouldn't read the disk at all. If your disk is too scratched to play you can buy a tool that will buff out the scratches at a place like Best Buy.

The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.
The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:
You can clean the laser, although that isn't necessarily the problem. You can pick up a laser cleaning disk at any retail electronics store, such as Best Buy, RadioShack, and sometimes even Walmart. You can also open your Playstation 2 and use a Q-tip and rubbing alchohol to clean the laser. The problem is likely though that when you first loaded FIFA the data was corrupted on your memory card. Try deleting any FIFA data off of your card and then starting the game.
sounds like either a dirty laser or a low powered laser, laser cleaning discs tend to be **** once the laser has stopped reading, if you are confident in stripping it , locate the laser and twist a cotton bud into it,this is the best way of cleaning, do not use any cleaning fluid as this can damage it.
I would be careful about cleaning your lens because Sony has been known to void any warranty you have when cleaning because of not using "sony products". I to have the same problem but mine came up disc read error only after a month and i cant play anything either? even thoguh I dont have a solution I just offer a warning about cleaning it.
