SOURCE: Replaced Laser on my PS3. The new laser lights

Usually when this happens I check all the cables, the main fat one, and all the little brothers on the blu-ray drive board. It's probably not the motor but the replacement blu-ray drive itself. If the drive isn't working correctly the disc won't spin, no matter what. See if you can convince a friend to let you swap lasers to see if that's the problem for sure.

If the PS3 can't read the disks, the laser is the only thing that could cause the trouble. You could've scratched the laser when you cleaned it, or it could have been broken from the start. I recommend calling Sony and calling for a repair. Just hope that they will repair it for free even though you voided the warranty by opening it up.

Ps3 won't read game discs for a couple of times it doesn't even recognise a disc is inserted eventhough it may eject it and insert it again. i have reformatted but problem still exists. any ideas


hey there boppa252001

OK so you have the DISK READ ERROR

Not to worry this can be fixed, I will give you 2 options below for the best possible fixes.

Option 1 SONY

Call Sony they can have this fixed within 4-6 weeks for a cost of $150 but it is free if your still in warranty (12 months)

Option 2 YOU

You can repair this problem quite easily with the help of a great ps3 repair guide that many use to fix there PS3 problems themselves within hours rather than weeks.

You will soon be back up and running using any of the above options

My system plays cd's dvd's but when i put a ps3 game in the disc wont show therefor im not allowed to play any games by disc


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

I have disc read problems.


I do hear that the controller card on that revision of PS3 can have failure issues... right now I'm waiting on a new bluray drive assembly for a CECHE01 because of, basically, the very same problem. This eBay seller(lives on the other side of the US from me) seems to know a good bit about these issues, and even provides his phone number for tech support. Search under his store for: CECHE01

My ps3 is not even registering that there is a disc n the system


Make sure the disc is clean and scratch free. Also, give the laser a clean using a laser cleaning disc. If that doesn't work, you will need to contact Sony for a replacement or get it repaired.

Ps3 disk read error


It is quite easy.  Go to www.llamma.com to see the video on disassembling a PS3.  If you want I can do it. I run the Playstation Clinic and repair PS3 systems.  You probably do not even need to replace the laser. Check out www.playstationclinic.com
