Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Discs will not load or be acknowledged by the Playstation

Hi,
My Playstation suddenly stopped loading discs recently. It's definately not the disc as I've tried my LittleBigPlanet on another console. It happened when I had accidently left the game running on pause all day. Is there anyway of solving this problem without sending it for repairs?? I would be very grateful for a bit of advise.

thankyou

There is no way to solve this problem without bringing it to a repair shop.the laser inside is already busted and the only solution to that is to replace the lens,hope this one solves your problem

Playstation 3 won't load games or Blue Ray Discs


This is normally because the laser on the drive is slightly off. The good thing is that you can fix this yourself it is quite simple.

Or of course you can send it in to be fixed it is up to you.

If you send it in you will have to pay out about $130 to get it fixed.

PS3 will not read any discs


The laser lens might be damaged. Is your warranty still available?

My ps3 system recently stopped reading any discs


i have got the same problem, you can either get a new blue ray lens and fit it yourself or give sony a ring and they will change your console for you.

Playstation 2


hello dear customer,
i am eltoyosi and am here to help you.
Once you notice your discs wont load firstly ensure the discs are very clean not damp and broken.If they are not faulty then check if the version of the discs are correlating with that of the game.....
I mean if your game is NTSC and the disc is PAL your game might not load this discs.
So make sure the discs playing mode are the same with the games.
thank you.
