MY PLAYSTATION3 WONT READ GAMES N I HAV ANOTHER THAT HAS THE RED RING


The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

My playstation3 is nor reading game cd.it's


Well you seem to have the same problem i had, you updated your ps3 and now it wont read any blueray at all....

you probaly wont like what im about to say.....

but there is 2 options....

1. If you still have warrenty left on your machine, then use it now. (go down to the shop where you bought it and have it replaced or send to service.)

2. If no warrenty, well then you still have 2 options, but these cost money.

2.1. You can still send it to service at any store that sells ps3, but they will charge you a fee. (about 150$)

2.2. Or you can find a blueray lens and then replace it your self, its an easy task and can be done in about 1½ for one that never opened a ps3. you can find tutorials on youtube how to replace it.
( it does require that you know how to handle a screwdriver )

A new lens will fix this problem, i had it myself and just replaced my lens with a new, and now it works again.

Not reading disc


just open the screws from the back of the device and from the sides and the cover will come out and everything will be clearly seen inside .just clean the lens with a clean moist tissue.its made of very thin and transperant glass and is very delicate so do it care fully and then the device will read the disc.

How do u fix


Hi,
These are to new to go tampering with.
possible problems:- power supply unit/fuse/motherboard Fault.
If it,s not powering on, then how can you determine that it,s not reading disks ?
disk read error. Possible Faulty/Weak Laser Unit.
Mike @ compurepair.
Solution:- Buy An XBOX 360. Same graphical Quality, been out longer, bigger game availability. Less problems And Hassles.
