You could use the warranty or if it has gone away, you could buy replacement laser head and replace the broken part.

PS3 stuck on red light after it froze up. I unplugged it and replugged it and it's still stuck on the red light. It doesn't change or anything even after hitting the power button.


It would help, if you posted the model number of your system, as they do vary sightly. Is there a disk inside they system? This could be the main problem in witch there are several solutions to remove it. If not, than try inserting a disk, as the PS3 auto recognizes a disk being inserted and turns on the system. If the light is on, and it wont let you power it on, then generally it's the stuck disk problem. ^^ Hope this helps, and good luck.

My Wii will not Play GC games. It tells me "Unable to read disk, Check operations manual". Game has no scratches and my Wii is about 3years old. Plays Wii games just fine so I don't know...


Check your serial number on your Wii. If it starts with KU, it can't read them. If it starts with LU, and it's ONLY GC games it won't play, then your system needs to be repaired.

Out of warranty repair cost is $85 plus tax for America.

My son put a penny inside our wii. my husband got it out (by shaking it) but now it wont play any games. the screen turns black and says there was an error to refer our users manual, which we dont have....


If the system was connected to power when the penny was inserted and was shaken to get it out, Then something has got shorted out. Can not tell you what component. But the penny has probably came in contact with about every component in the console. If it didnt short anything out then it has damaged the laser.

Hello,

This problem has something to do with your PS3's lens. It may have gone bad too. This happened to me too and I brought my PS3 to sony. The culprit was bad lens.

The console is not reading several games that it used to read.


Sometime the inside could be dusty try to get one of those pressurised air gun dusters and spray inside the disk slot. sometime the inner ring of the disk were the system variefies its a wii game could be slighly dirty so clean mainly around were the hole is in the disk.

During Game Play Of Grand Theft Auto Vice City


The Disk May Be Internally Damaged Or Externally Damaged, I Would Advise To Get A Disk Cleaning Machine. Or Inside The Console The Laser That Reads The Disk May Be Broken Best To Send It To A Game Shop Or Your Nearest Retailer.
