Simple fix for this all you need to do is readjust the laser you can do this from home or use a good guide to help you do it.

Hello my sons ps3 has stopped loading games,


I have seen lasers burn out shortly after 1 year. They are available online for purchase. It would be the laser for sure if the system starts up fine, disks go into and out of the console and if there is an icon in top right of screen like it is trying to read. I have fixed a few but laser replacement usually cost $150. Good Luck

Ps 3 wont load games cd or dvd


Hi mate

Call sony in this case as long as you do not open your console yet. before speak to them tell then that your ps3 is no longer reading discs they have been know to repair it for free.

It the laser gone most probably the KEM400aaa you can tell by the CECH**** code on the end of the serial number

If they will not repair for free it will be a cost of £99.00 or you can repair your self by replaceing the laser around £65.00
