PS3 is The amazing device by sony but it has some common problems like unreadable disc, disc error 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.

My son has a PS3 which was just a year old in October 08 there is an error appearing (80010514) and it is not reading the discs. Please can you inform me is there any way this can be rectified by myself without sending the whole console away.

I look forward to your response.

Kind Regards

SOURCE: playstation 3 will not read disc

You can clean the lens but it almost never fixes the problem.

The problem is usually the blu-ray laser itself. It needs to be replaced.

Google "Five Most Common PS3 Problems" for answers and solutions.

Does not read games


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem


Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.


Thank you !!
