Disks won't spin in the Blu-Ray drive

My PS3 is out of warranty by a little less than a month. It doesn't recognize ANY disks. Further examination revealed that the disks are not spinning. I replaced the KES-400aaa chassis. I used my old laser, same problem. Is there another reason the disk won't spin?

    I opened mine up and didn't see any problems. The CD goes in and out without issue. I think the motor that spins the center piece spindle is burt out. Anyone with ideas to fix this?

SOURCE: ps3 not reading

seems that you have to change your blu-ray. go back where you have bought that and take another.

one of them may be able to read both ps2 and ps3 disks and the other may only be able to read the ps3 disks. another difference may be the power.

SOURCE: ps3 blu-ray player will not work

No it will not.... It surges the disk 2-3 times senses there is a disk and then starts it spinning if there was a disk in there.

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

It will play ps2 games **** not ps3 and it is a ps3


Hi jhoover64,

Launch PS3 models and PS3 models with backwards compability have different disk lenses for blu-ray disks and dvd disks. Which means that you can have a faulty blu-ray lense that doesn't work, but as long as your dvd disk lense works you'll be able to play PS2 games and DVD movies.

Sadly the only way to repair a fault disk lense is by getting it to official tech support. You could try ordering the replacement parts and having it repaired by a third party or yourself but this is not recommended since it void the PS3 warranty.

Hope this helped you!

My ps3 plays movies but wont recognize games


The PS3 uses a different laser for DVD's, Blu-Ray disks, and CD's. It's quite likely that just the Blu-ray diode has crapped out. have you upgraded to firmware 3.10

For the player to work perfectly the lens needs to be clean. One piece of dirt can cripple your PS3 and end up with your PS3 not playing games. This dirt needs to be cleaned off the lens occasionally to avoid you having ps3 problems loading games.

Try these steps to resolve this issue:

You could be facing a lens related issue or corrupted firmware problem

try this

1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format your PS3, this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

3. Try cleaning the blu-ray drive lens with a Blu Ray Lens Cleaner

if this does not help, i suggest should be send to Sony for repairs in case your PS3 is under warranty your replacement drive may be covered still you need to check with PS3 customer support, Laser replacement would cost you around $130.

Hope this helps, and please do rate my solution, Happy Holidays and Happy gaming ahead!

40gb ps3 unable to recognise or read any disc.


Contact sony about blu-ray drive error, first make sure that the disks are clean and are'nd containing any scratches.

If your disks are clean and are'nd containing any scratches, it's just failing hardware and Sony can repair it for you.

And if past the warrantee, you also could replace the blu-ray drive your self.

Succes.

PS3 won't recognize disks after update


You can back up ANYTHING you wish to keep via the backup utility what I'm about to tell you to do will essentially erase your harddrive. After backing up any data you wish to keep, restore your PS3 system and to a FULL ( not quick ) format of your harddrive ( this will probably take a couple of hours ). After that, if it still doesn't work call SONY.

Hope that helps..........
