    I have the same problem and im very pissed bout it. My system won't load any games or blu rays, it makes one click noise and then just stops. I tried cleaning it out by putting a cotton cloth around one of the discs and letting it load it and then pulled it out but no such luck. Is there anything other solutions? If not how to I go about get Sony to fix the problem?

Game Will Not Load


there are actually multiple ways in going about this, none of which is guaranteed to work. however, its worth a shot. First what u can do is reset ur ps3 (im looking at ur picture, so im assuming its a ps3). enter the recovery mode by following these instructions

if this doesnt work, then ur next option is to bring it to sony to fix it.
what you can also do, is take apart ur ps3, access the optical drive and wipe the lense. that worked for my ps3

When i put in my game disc the ps3 takes the game in however the game does not load and also makes a click noise and then the eject noise but doesnt eject i cant play any game on my ps3 now, the home page...


Its possible that your disk drive is broken if your console is under warranty i recommend sending it in to Sony for repair, if not its your call if you want to send it in for a price, or see if you can fix it your self (which is beyond my knowledge and i DO NOT RECOMMEND)

Ps3 loads most games first time however after about 20 mins of playing battlefield BC 2 the sound stops working i can hear people talk through headset but no game sounds when i reset and insert the game...


Hi Danny41,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.

Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

Wen i put the disc in the ps3 it wont show up wer it usually does after a while after i put the disc in it makes the nois like its coming out but it dosent plz help me!


This happened to me once, hopefully it is not the issue. What i suggest doing is, trying a variety of different disk(e.g. one game, one dvd, and one Blu-ray) That way we can establish if its the PS3 or the disk you are using. Now on the top right hand side when you insert a disk you should see a loading disk sign( would look like a clear whirlpool spinning) if it shows up but no disk appears it could be your Blu-ray laser went out. After that what you can do is to attempt a system reset. Make sure you have all your info backed up, if not you can still plug in a USB Thumb Drive(make sure it has enough space in it to back up your ps3 though) or a External Hard Drive with (also sufficient space) and back up your info. ([Settings]>[System Settings]>[Backup Utility]>Back Up).

Once that is done, Hold the power button while the PS3 is powering up until you hear three beeps. These signal that the PS3 has received the manual system reset command.
Prompt through the initial setup menu to continue resetting the PS3.
Select "Format" from the system menu to format and finish a complete system reset for the PS3.

Once that is finished attempt to place in you disks. If the issue persist , then it is the laser that is having the issue and you will have to contact Sony to file a repair ticket. If your under warranty or have the extended warranty then it will not be at charge. (Make sure you have your proof of purchase,date/receipt to prove warranty) If not you will have to pay out of pocket which i believe is 150 US Dollars.

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.
