How long have you owned your system? You may be able to contact xbox for a repair under the warranty. If your warranty is expired and you're feeling adventurous, you can try to take apart the system and clean the lens of the disk drive with a cotton swab(Q-tip) very carefully, do not use much pressure, it will scratch. If this doesn't work, I suggest contacting xbox and having them fix it for you, if you don't have a warranty anymore, you may have to pay for the repair. www.xbox.com

I hope I was able to help you solve your problem and please rate! Thank you!

While watching a blue ray movie it just stopped I took it out thinking the disc needed cleaning and put it back in. the little clock looking thing at the top right side was turning but the unit acted like...


Something may be wrong with the optical drive of your console. I would suggest calling Sony to see if you can get it serviced.

Before that try leaving it off for some time and letting it cool down. I would also suggest cleaning the drive, only the part that pops out. Then try turning it on and seeing if you experiment the same problems.

Also I would suggest to be careful with the discs you put in, if there is a malfunction the discs might become ruined.

This is caused by a dead laser .
Find a tutorial on how to install a new laser ( it's not hard to do) Find out what style drive you have and
goto ebay buy a laser their cheap 20.00 -30.00.
and with a little effort and time you will have saved
60.00-70.00 on repair and be playing your game again

MY ps2 Doesnt read PS2 Cd games


If you are trying to read a burnt game, you need it chipped first. If not, maybe your game is burnt or scratched. Some video stores will fix them for free. (Movie Gallery is where I go)

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.
