The disks won't spin/read. It powers up and gets internet connected but it won't read disks. I have a 60gb and do not want to get rid of it. Whats wrong, where can I get it fixed, and how much should it...


THe lens of your PS3 if failing and thus the reason it won't read discs. You can call Sony andhave it fixed, it's free if warranty is still good and $159 for out of warranty repairs.

My disk reader on my xbox 360 will NOT read disks.


Hello there

From what you have said it sounds like you have the OPEN/CLOSE TRAY ERROR

The main causes are Hardware failure, overheating or wear & tear.

You may need to perform simple maintenance, clean or in some cases adjust settings.

To get the best advice on where to start I recommend a GOOD REPAIR GUIDE, From this you can fix the problem at home and avoid any large repair bills. Its easier than it sounds when you have help from the guide.

I used Gamer Fix to get the best guides

The other solution would be to send the console off to its manufacturer, This is free if your still in warranty. If your console is out of warranty then the usual price of repair is $150

I am Glad I could help and You can help others by rating this Post or leaving a comment.
Many thanks

The disk door takes forever to stay closed and read the disk. It keeps opening and closing for 10 minutes or so before it will read the game. Thanks!


This is more than likely a drive motor fault, whats happening is when the motor wears it has not got the strength to connect with the magnet so it just opens the tray again, to see if this is the problem, lay the console down, turn it on when it says reading give it a rap (don't go mad) with your knuckles where the middle of the disk would be, if it loads that's your problem.
It could also be a magnet issue, sometimes the magnet comes loose off the motor and needs gluing back on, either of these need the console opening to repair.
Remember thumbs up if this helps.

Games wont play. Problems with Disk player


it might be the disk drive lens just inst reading. if you still have warrenty with microsoft call and tell them whats wrong. if not then it will be cheaper if you buy a new disk drive for your xbox 360 and have a game repair shop replace it or just take it to the game repair shop and they can tell you whats wrong for sure. but call microsoft first you have 3 year warrenty with microsoft depending around what time you purchesed your system.

Doesnt read discs


Whenever mine wouldn't read disks i'd hit it a few times on the top face (lower left side above dvd drive), then turn it back on to see if it would read it. Sometimes i had to do it 5-10 times... and eventually it worked again for a few months..... (of course, do this at your own risk, but it works for me)

if that doesn't work I'd Call xbox 360 support and see if they will fix it for free (they are fixing the 'flashing red lights" error for free right now... possibly your disc read error). if they refuse to fix it for free and you don't feel like paying...... then you may need to make it have the three red-lights

xbox support may be cover this issue.

Ps2 will not read disc


Check your disk for scratches fingerprints ect,,
if thats all good step two
try useing a lens cleaner


****(( tip and trick for scratched disks ))****
a crayon rubbed on the disk then wiped off with a lint free cloth
no t-shirts dish towels that will just add more scratches
remember start at the center wipeing out to the edge.

if none of that works you may have a lens problem
