Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 disc won't insert, sticks 1/2 way in.

When I try to insert a disc in my PS3, the disc won't go in. It slowly spins the disc around while it is still sticking 1/2 way out of the slot. I have no idea why this started happening. It is the 60GB model so that may be why it is having issues.

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.

The ps3 will not read or recognize any disc we insert. games or movies. it does operate properly with the internet


This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a 3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

Whenever I put in a Playstation3 Discs (Specifically PS3 Discs) Usually a icon will appear where you may press the X button to start playing. But for all MY discs nothing happens. This started 3 days ago...

My PS3 won't read games or dvds, it doesn't even rev up when the disc is inserted. I've tried using one of the disc cleaners, but it didn't even read that. I'm not sure what is wrong with it...

On my ps3 80gb system, the disc never spins up. I don't have a problem replacing the part myself, but I don't know what part to order. can you help. Thanks! Mike


Hi there, the PS3 blu ray is a bit of a complex device. Basically the way it work is before the disc is even spun the laser reads and detects what kind of media is inserted into the PS3. As you are saying the disc is not spinning there are 2 possible causes for this.
1. The blu ray lens has gone and is unable to read blu ray discs, hence the disc does not spin as none is detected.
2. The actual motor that spins the disc has gone. This is a much more unlikely reason, the blu ray lens is a common problem on the PS3.

As a shot in the dark you could try a laser lens cleaner but make sure it is suitable for blu ray. If this does not work you are going to have to purchase a new blu ray drive. You can get them for around £70 on ebay but you need to make sure you get the right one. Check your PS3 model number and google it to find which drive you have.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I dropped my Ps3 accidently, and now it's behaving


if it does not read games anymore ( like if you insert a cd and it doesn't start working ) that means that the hard drive ( the part that reads the game discs ) is broken , why : because when you dropped your ps3 the head of the actuator arm scrached the platter ( the platter is sensitive , even a tiny scratch will stop the hard drive from working ) , so the solution is to change the hard drive , i hope i helped .
