Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My playstation 3 is not reading my games & blueray disc

Whenever i put in a blueray movie, DVD or PS3 game they wont load up. My hard drive works, meaning that I can still browse my hard drive and the things I have saved but when I try to insert a disc it wont load. What does this mean? Is my laser damaged? And how would I address this issue? And do you have any idea of the cost and how long it would take to get my system back if I were to send it away?

It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could send it to Sony, but they take a long time to repair it and charge $150 USD plus shipping and handling.

You could also replace the laser yourself.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Why wont my PS3 play any blueray games or movies?


Try using a lens cleaning disc. If that doesn't help your PS3's disc drive is probably dying. Time to call Sony support...

Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

It sounds like you need a new disc drive, but it could just be a dirty lens. If you put the disc in and it just does not spin, you need a new disc drive.
