Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I purchased a modded PS3 with a 250GB HD but originally it was a 60GB HD. Since last week it won't read games or dvd's. The loading circle on top keeps spinning around like it's loading and does not stop. What should be the problem?
P.S. It wont read the PS2 games either.
I am having this same problem right now.. my son put coins inside the console so i opened it up and took them out. Now when i put a game or dvd inside it doesnt read them and keeps on spinning.. the clock on the other hand stops spinning. I can sign into psn but i cant play any games/demo's on my hard drives

PS3 is The amazing device by sony but it has some common problems like Disc read error, sound problem etc.... Good news is that these all problems can be repaired with the help of DIY Guides, one such guide available at PS3 Repair Blog

It's a Sony
defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average
use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the
original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise
they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at:
Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.
