    Yea, there are no disks in the drive. I can force a disk in and then have it eject by holding down eject for 15 sec, but it won't read the disk.

    I also cannot put in a disk; although I can force one in. There is also a grinding sound. When I look into the disk opening, I see two silver prongs up and in the way. Anyone else?

Put a game disc into ps3 grinding noise wont show game icon


Make sure that you do not have the PS3 on it's side. Lay it flat. Insert a MOVIE DVD first and see if it will recognize the disc.
If you continue to hear a grinding sound when the ps3 is laying down that could only mean one thing, you need a replacement drive.

Dont forget to Always update your Playstation to the newest firmware.

Hello my ps3 is making grinding noises when i insert a game and it wont load up properly. any ideas


Hi mccoy_c,

Sadly, it sounds like you have a faulty disk lense on your system and it's not recognizing disks. This issue is quite rare on newer consoles but the only good and realiable fix is to send it to official Sony Tech Support. Other solutions involve ordering the needed parts online and having a third party or yourself try to repair it, but this is not recommended.
Please note that any attemt to fix it yourself or take apart the console results in a void warranty. If your system is still under warranty (which i'm guessing it is since it's newish) then you shouldn't have any problems getting it replaced.

I'm sorry i couldn't give you more support on the issue.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
