PS3 not reading discs


Many of you know the horrors that fall on the older generations of the ps3 20/40/60gs, mostly it is an issue with the blue ray drive where discs cannot be read.
Signs of this are as follows the game cd icon doesn't appear in the game list when one is inserted, or if a disc is in the tray the spinning icon in the top right corner continues to "scan" for the disc. These are signs of either a bad drive and needs to be replaced or the disc drive tray is misaligned, but fear not sometimes the smallest fix does the job.
I have the original 60g ps3 about half a year after my warrenty expired my blue ray drive decided to not read any form of disc be it dvd/cd/bd so i called sony they sent the coffin and i sent it back and when it arrived they had replaced the tray and parts of the drive to function again, so far so good discs reading again yay...not for long.
About a month later it happened again i was angered thinking that i just paid 180 to fix it i didnt want to spend that money again so i found a solution that seemed to work and hasn't had any problems as of yet..(knock on wood) but this being about 1 yr later im happy. Basically i figured it could be a bad sector of my hdd that is preventing my drive from reading anything so i reformatted my system and then voila! reads discs again so instead of calling sony right away try and reformat the system to its factory settings may be a pain for some and ok for others that have a large enough usb stick or drive to back up to but it saves you the cash in the end hope this helped anyone with this problem

PS3 READING DVD'S + CD'S BUT NOT GAMES WHATS UP ?


Hello,

To start the laser reads disc's differently. A CD or DVD is just your typical disc then you have blueray which your games are burned onto a blueray disc. Your optical lens is damaged and likely unable to read blueray format.

If you have a blueray movie or can borrow one, try it and see if it still plays that will determine if that is the problem.

If so you will have to replace the optical lens,

Note: Opening your PS3 will void your warranty, so if you are still covered, it is best to send it in to Sony for repair.

Good news is it is easy to do and there are many free step by step tutorials with pictures or videos to show you how. If you must do it yourself.

My playstation will not play any games, nor movies. system # 98006


hello,

The most common reason for the Playstation not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Playstation including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Playstation going again!

PS3 overheated - won't read dvd


It's a simple problem, your ps3 has overheated, so you need to get a fan, or get the once inside the ps3 fixed, if that doesn't help just send it to a repair station, either once is simple and doesn't cost mega money.

I can not install GTA IV. I know my computer can run it, but it won't install. Please help?


You've put this problem in the Playstation3 section. However you say "I know my computer can run it" Please explain which console/computer.

If you've got GTA IV for Playstation3 then there should be no problem unless it has something to do with your HDD.

My ps3 is not reading the cds or games the


This happened to me within 6 mos of getting my ps3 and it turned out to be a bad drive. If you are getting the menu and the disc is going in and coming out in exactly the same position that you put it in then your drive is broken. It runs about 140 or so from sony to get it replaced, but I don't know if that includes shipping and handling. Mine was under warranty when it happened and did not have to pay a thing
