If you don't have money to send it out for repair.
Turn off and unplug your PS3 for atleast 1 hour.
Take an "Air Can" and blow it out all the dust from all angles.
*You have to use Clean Air and never turn the can Upside down nore angle it too much, your air can will start shooting cold liquid! VERY BAD!
After you clean out your PS3 then let it sit for ½ hour and then turn it on and see if you fixed the issue!
Good Luck!

The update corrupted your hard drive that's why it's not loading any disc.Yes,Restoring the system will work but it will destroy all your saved game data.Updating the system will not remove the hard disk defect.There is only one solution,Reset it.

My ps3 wont read disc and went it does the game wont load it will just say error has occured


Hi,

This is an extremely common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.

The symptoms you describe are typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

Need more information. What do you mean you haven't been able to load anything since? What game is it? What version of the PS3 system's XMB are you running? Version 2.2 came out last night. Try updating.

Not reading disc


If you in anyway did not complete the update it can actually seriously damage your system. If you canceled the update or prematurely stopped it. i suggest calling suport at 1-800-345-SONY (7669) or emailing them at http://www.us.playstation.com/corporate/ConsumerServices
