Hello, possibble solution is to replace the optical pickup block. There are two types mitsumi pvr802, and the one from sankyo. If you need more info, please advice. PS: cleaning the pickup unit with alcohol is not a good idea. There is a special cleaning liquid for this purpose.

When i turned my Ps3 on this mornin i changed the disk and put anouther game in. its been doing the spinning line in a circle thing for the last 10mins. it was working fine last night. plz help!

Either bad laser or dirty laser. Take your console apart if you dont have a warranty break down the disc drive metal case and wipe your laser with a q tip and rubbing alchol not to wet though kinda wipe qtip on ur arm to get most of the alchol off the qtip so it wont pour into the laser when you wipe it off. hopefully that works if not its a bad laser.
