It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

Why does my DVD player say STOP in Upper Right Corner?


Sounds like your laser mechanism is no longer capable of reading a disk. If it does it with other disks then you can be sure of the diagnosis.

And due to parts cost and labor a repair is usually not cost effective.

My 2006 pontiac g6 seems to have a bit of a shimmy when i go over 80 kph, it also seems to be worse on corners, i checked the tire pressure and it was good and the tires tread are good as well, any idea on...


first of all have the wheel's balanced it could well be just as easy as this to fix, also have a look at all the steering ball joints to see if any are warn out (they will be loos and have some lift in them) put on new ones if you fine any bad ball joints check that the wheel bearings are not flopy? they should have "just a little play in them but it is very little!!" have fun,,!

How do I read 3 inch cd's. I only have a apple mac book pro 17''. This disc has instructions on how to use a Nissin DI866 flash gun. I did try to play it on a sony hard disc recorder on the tv but said it...


Hi Neil
Basically you're stuffed. Why do they insist on using those stupid little disks when no slot-loading cd player can actually use them.
I did actually find this full manual on the net.

Disk rotating and a message "invalid disk"


you can try manually cleaning the laser lens ( gently wipe , do not press down hard , it is suspended by fine wires ) using a q-tip and a drop of that cleaning solution you got with the laser lens disc. ( fluff another q-tip a little ) then dry wipe it with another q-tip and try a disc.
you can look at the laser lens and see if you see the laser come on also to determine if that is working ( do not look directly into the laser ! )
if the laser works but it still does not read discs after cleaning it manually , then there is a problem with the focus coil on the laser or the signal board is bad

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.

Disc won't load and then shows weird symbol in right corner


Check the black spindle that holds the disk it may be cracked or broken or the little spring tabs are broken. If this is the problem when the disk spins it lifts up and the head doesn't read the disk, this is what has happened to mine. I am trying to locate the part but so far have not had luck finding it.
