Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
It makes a wierd noise when the game goes in
First, check if the game CD has any scratches or is dirty. If that isn't the issue then there might be something loose in the drive, remove all the cords and game CD and slightly shake the PS3. If you hear any noise then that will be the issue. You would need to take it to get repaired if you have no experience with this.

Order new blu ray laser online and switch it out yourself with help on the internet. Look up how to replace ps3 laser lens, and you can get photos to help you. I just got my new laser 3 days ago. I switched it out and everything is working great.

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

If you have suddenly got the disc reading problem then you should be able to fix this. It can happen because the laser on the disc player gets a little dirty or is off where it needs to be slightly.
This may also cause the crunching noise - you can send it back in but will have to pay $150 to fix this.
You can use a good PS3 Repair guide like the ones HERE to fix this from home.
