    Iv'e been reccommened to keep my finger on eject from sony to refresh the drive or something, doesnt sound too convincing but who knows i havent tried it yet tbh, but its realy annoyin me this ha. I also read that rebooting the ps3 may solve it but who knows, gd luck anyway. If it comes to it just return it under the warranty or even into a games shop that does console repairs.

I kept my finger on the eject button whilst having disc half way in and then i turned ps3 off and on by pressing standby button. it magically accepted the disc eventually and all was good - had to give it a few go's though

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...

The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

Got this tip from :

My 80gig ps3 didnt read my ps3 games; followed these instructions and it worked!!!

1. Plug in controller

2. Have system in standby mode (red light)

3. Hold down power button for a full cycle (will turn on and back off again)

4. Hold power button again will hear 2 single beeps then a double beep.

5. As soon as you hear the double beep immediately remove your finger from the power button.

6. Hit the PS button on controller when it tells you to

7. Go to ONLY option 3 (restore)

8. WARNING: select any other option and you can wipe out everything ONLY USE OPTION 3

9. Follow on screen prompts

Thanks to Krazyfox

Not accepting a disk, acts like there is another disk in there

Hold the "Eject" button for ten seconds and try it. Oh and if you have a 40 gb model (2 USB ports) and the Eject button dosent work then try this, Turn off the back of the PS3 (Main power switch) and then hold the eject button (while the main power is off) keep your finger pressed on the eject button flick on the main power switch and it should sound like some HUGE fan don't get scared, wait until the fan stops turn off your ps3, start it up and insert the disk and IT SHOULD WORK

I bought a PS3 yesterday and had to take it back - when entering a disk it would get pulled in and start to spin but would only go in still leaving about a half inch sticking out - it would spin for about 15 seconds and then stop. I had to take it back and get a replacement which worked fine.

Hi there :) We have recently bought one but as it came from the states the warranty is only valid for US residents. We played the PS3 for the first time for about an hour then the sound stopped, it...

As my brother has had a similar problem in the past.You can try going to the store you bought it from with your receipt and request a replacement or refund.If that doesn't work,you can send it in to Sony.If you don't have a warrant,There a repair fee,but it's cheaper than buying another PS3.
