Why does my Playstation rejects game disks?


Clean the laser. Either open the unit, and clean the lens with a q tip and rubbing alcohol, or get a CD cleaner kit. If that doesn't work, you'll need a lens replacement like I did on mine eventually.

When you start my ps3 all is fine then after loading a disk the ps3 just carrys on as if there is no disk in the machine no disk error no sign that the disk is there at all


its very possible that the laser reader inside of your disc drive is broken.

if you leave it on all the time it can get hot and burn out or it got hit or dropped it could easily brake as well.

My PS3 won't load the 'Profile Select' screen


compressed air ?! well, i guess it must have danified something in your hardware..... try changing your Hard Disk (must be a Sata 2,5'' 5400rpm). else, you should take it to a support centre for verify possibly hardware damage .

My ps3 loads games when i insert the disk about 6 or 8 times


Your laser is going out again. The ONLY way you can fix it is by replacing it again.

Thanks Sony!

PS3 Loading game Problems


try picking up a lens cleaning disk. they have brushes on the bottom that clean your lens. you put the alcohol water solution on the rushes and then insert it into the drive of the ps3. that may work if you have the same problem with all your disks. if you don't have a problem with all your disks, it may be that your savegame is corrupt and you need to start a new one.
