You need to readjust the laser to fix this. You can send the console in to get this done or you can fix it yourself with a good repair guide.

Hello , as long as the lights are on and powering up and sounds like the dvd drive is running ,try using a dvd cleaner disk ,when theese machines get thousand,s and thousands of hours on them the lazer become,s dusty and dirty , the cleaner is a cheap way and a good habit to use once in a while for your game system ,also you can also spray an electronic cleaner that is 100 alcohol that will evaporate inside the unit ,But remember unplug the unit and let it cool before spraying the cleaner in the slot! It will dry within a few seconds , the laser that reads theese disc,s can easily become dirty with time so try the dvd cleaner disc ,there are a few differnt kits on the market from cheap to audiophileaholic ! just meaning expensive ! go for the middle of the road on this one , after following the instructions on the cleaning give it a shot , Also always check your disc,s for scratches ,because the laser is so sensitive it might have a hard time reading the info on the disc when their,s scratches on them! Hope this gave you some idea,s and hopefully one of them will solve your problem . Thank you and good luck sincerely Glenn

Hi, it seems like the DVD’s laser head may need cleaning. For this operation you will have to use a DVD head cleaning kit.

My system plays cd's dvd's but when i put a ps3 game in the disc wont show therefor im not allowed to play any games by disc


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

Laser has to be bad then if its not reading brand new games or dvds. To verify this though get a can of air and gently blow it into the drive to make sure there is no specs of dirt or dust on the laser.

Now try the games and dvds again and if its still happening then the laser needs to be replaced and you can get them fairly cheap off of Ebay.
