My PS3 doesn't read disks that i insert!


It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

In your caseme, best bet might be to get the whole drive.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

When playing a dvd the color randomly darkens and then brightens


If I had to guess I would say its the back light on the TV dying, pay close attention to if it is doing at other times and not just during DVD / Blue ray usage. If it is just during the DVD/ Blue ray usage then it could be either the Blueray drive, the video cable going bad, or the video card in the PS3 going bad.
See if your PS3 is still under warrenty if it turns out to be the PS3.

If this still doesn't help your problem, please leave additional comments and I'll see what I can do.

When I turn on the PS3 the green light comes on for a few seconds and then goes back to red. I cannot eject or insert a disk


It's a hardware problem.

You can try booting the ps3 with the hard drive out.

Otherwise google my username and my blog will come up with a bunch of info on how to fix PS3 problems.

Best of luck!
