Game wont play


If your PS3 is not reading games you will need to repair it.
You can readjust the laser yourself and it is not that difficult!
All you need is a good PS3 disc reading fix.

Ps3 won't read game discs for a couple of times it doesn't even recognise a disc is inserted eventhough it may eject it and insert it again. i have reformatted but problem still exists. any ideas


hey there boppa252001

OK so you have the DISK READ ERROR

Not to worry this can be fixed, I will give you 2 options below for the best possible fixes.

Option 1 SONY

Call Sony they can have this fixed within 4-6 weeks for a cost of $150 but it is free if your still in warranty (12 months)

Option 2 YOU

You can repair this problem quite easily with the help of a great ps3 repair guide that many use to fix there PS3 problems themselves within hours rather than weeks.

You will soon be back up and running using any of the above options

Dics not recognised !!


Hi, I think if you search for a repair shop they maybe able to help by the sounds of things im assuming your drives laser head is either dirty or become faulty, thus it wont read discs, best thing to do is get it repaired, or replaced...there is not much you could do unless you know how to open the ps3 and take the drive out etc...I would recommend seeing a professional...

hope this is of any help..
