The disk drive laser is probably bad. You most likely have to return it. Try it with a brand new disk to check if it still works. If it doesn't return it

Ps2 Disc won't respond to a Ps3 when inserted.


Only the first version of the PS3 had PS2 backwards compatibility, They did make a special edition Metal Gear Solid version with it included but other than that no other PS3 will play PS2 discs... No matter what Add-On you install.

Hi there,

What you need to do here is determine whether the problem is the disc itself or the PS3 drive. You can easily test to see if the problem is the disc by putting in another PS3 Game, Blu-Ray, or DVD. If it reads it, then the problem is the disc itself, not the PS3.

It could just be that the disc is a little dirty, or that a fingerprint is blocking the laser from reading the disc inside of the PS3. You can try cleaning it with a lightly-damped piece of toilet paper. You will also want to dry it off with a dry piece of toilet paper. If the PS3 still won`t read it, then the problem may be that it`s scratched. If this is the case, your best bet may be to go to Best Buy to purchase a kit that removes these kinds of scratches. Places like EB Games and Gamestop also have professional cleaners to clean these discs for a mere $5.00.
Now, if there are no discs that work inside your PS3, that indicates a problem with the laser inside the drive. There are means of cleaning the laser inside of the drive, but doing so will break the warranty seal. This means that your PS3 will no longer be covered under Sony warranty if it breaks down in the future.

If this is something you wish to pursue, then try following this YouTube video. If you have never opened up your PS3 before, you may benefit more from visuals than pre-written instructions. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-8NzYHr80

Not reading the games disc and when i put in a


This could be alnes problem or a system problem. Try to restore the PS3 first.

Turn off the ps3 then press and hold the powr button until it turns off again. Then do the same thing but this time it will make a beep, then it will make a double beep, and as soon as the ps3 makes a double beep release it. Its going to bring up a menu and make sure you press number 3 which is restoring file system. I would recommend going to this webpage which explains everything in better details http://www.ps3blog.co.za/2008/04/10/ps3-error-80010514-explained/

PS3 not appearing to read discs


it sounds like your laser is either dirty or dead. take your system apart and clean the lens and see if it helps. if it dosen't then your laser is probably dead and needs replaced.
