Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Hi my PS3 wont play games, DVD or CD's

Hi my PS3 will play downloaded games but nothing on disc. You stick in the disc and there is nothing - you dont even hear the disc whiring round. Everything else looks normal but typically the warrenty ran out last month. I'm at a loss with this, any help would be appreciated. Cheers

Ps3 wont read disc


First you need to verify that all types of discs won't read. there are 3 types that a ps3 will play CD, DVD and BluRay. If none of them work then your laser is either dirt and needs to be cleaned or is bad. If say dvd and cd works than the BluRay part of the lens needs to be calibrated which requires takign the system apart an voiding warranties.

CD wont spin


You are unable to play your discs because the Blu-Ray Lens that enables the PS3 to read Blu-Ray movies or games has gone bad.

There is nothing you can do about it. You need to take it to an authorized Sony Service Center and get the lens replaced.

My playstation wont play any discs at all


It's a Sony defect. Drives only last 1-3 years, sometimes less, with average use.

That's the number one problem that I see with the PS3.

Check out my blog for help fixing the problem.

DVD play on my 60gb PS3 but games wont!


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

The best way to play burned movies is to copy them onto a memory stick or external hard drive then copy them onto the ps3 i use this method and find the movies play in much higher quality than dvd-r or+r or whatever discs you use

Ps3 not reading cd/dvd/games/blurays


hi...
The inside of the disc player is probably dusty. Video game consoles are notorious for gathering dust. I've fixed dozens that way. Cleaning inside the drive
