Try using a lens cleaner CD first. Most of the time a PS3 wont read BD because it's malfunctioned so you may have to send it in to Sony.

My ps3 wont read the disc


First you should try getting a blu ray disc cleaner. This will clean the lens and let you know if it is dirt is on the lens causing the disc not to read. If this does not work they you will need the blu ray lens replaced.

Purchased 60GB backward compatable PS3 ( used). Will not play games, PS2 or PS3, they freeze up.


There are 3 main causes and solutions:

Software Issue (Restore the PS3 to factory settings via Sytem, Settings, Restore PS3

Dirty blu-ray lens ( take the PS3 apart and clean the laser eye carefully with a DRY q-tip.

Faulty / Failing blu-ray drive ( check and secure all of the cables to the blu-ray drive)

If the issue persists then more than likely you'll need to swap the blu-ray laser out with a new one.

There are a ton of guides on ps3hax.net and youtube.

Hope this info helps!

Playstation 3 will not read disc , can i clean lens myself? not under warranty. just stopped reading the disc's


You can clean the lens but it almost never fixes the problem.

The problem is usually the blu-ray laser itself. It needs to be replaced.

Google "Five Most Common PS3 Problems" for answers and solutions.

Ps3 blu ray lens cleaning


What are you saying you screw up your $600 dollar console. OMFG i mean common man. Jeez luis. Well since you have your ps3 already open your ps3 system you should open again and extract cod4 out of your blue ray drive before you hook it up and all that. So take the game out connect the blue ray drive back put the system together and power it up. See if that works.
