Take a can of air and blow some air gently into it. Could be a dust problem on the laser. After this then try and load the game again, if it doesn't work still, then its a weak laser and you'll have to get the drive replaced

Discs won t spin


If your discs wont spin, I would contact sony if your PS3 is still under warranty. If not than buy a new PS3 or start buying your games digitally to play them with no disc.

Console will not read the disc. It is a new disc no scratches


Insert a clean disk and listen carefully for

spin up 1 then the laser will scan (you will know it when
you hear it)2 then high speed spin up and load start screen.

brief spin up and then nothing is normally a week laser.
laser are cheap and not hard to install yourself.

if it spins up , laser scans and long pause 10sec or so
after witch then it says open tray.in this case you will likley
need a drive replacement .This will require some soldering
skill and may be better left to a reputable repair shop.

if you have any questions feel free to ask

I bought a gamecube online and it wont spin the disk


Sounds like you need the Gamecube sensor switch replaced. That is a small door device for detecting when the Gamecube DVD door or lid is closed allowing disc initiation to begin. When your Gamecube doesn't detect disk at all and simply continues the message: "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC," this is the problem. You can test this by inserting a game disc, opening the Gamecube door, and then closing it. If the message "Please insert a NINTENDO GAMECUBE DISC" remains unchanged, and there is no spinning of the disk, then your GameCube lid closed door sensor is probably broken and should be replaced. You can search Google for Part GCPT032, or for GameCube Lid Closed Door Sensor.

An easy fix if you know how to open the Cube. It's cable simply plugs in, and it is held by one tiny screw.

Disc Grinding, Not Motor or Magnet Thing


I think the only option for you is buy a replacement drive off ebay (you want the same model doesnt matter about the FW version) swap the PCB of the drives over so the new one has your old PCB. The same thing happened to me but when I lubed the spindle the grinding noise went away for a week at a time, so I got fed up of constantly lubing it and bought a new one off ebay and swapped the PCB worked brilliant ever since. Hope this helps.

MY xbox 360 will read dvds but when i enter a game it goes to the disc error screen


Have you tried to get this system flashed?

What's happening is .. which could be a couple of things..

1.) Your Firmware board on your ODD Drive is telling the Drive to spin at a certain speed. The speed its currently spinning at is too slow to read a game, but fast enough to read a DVD disc.

2.) This could also be a motor or laser issue.


I would suggest sending it in for repair. There is nothing you can do without opening it to fix it.
