Play Station 3 40gb- Blueray lens is not reading discs

The Blueray is not reading the discs. Can anyone tell me if this is a common problem, how to fix it and where one can send it to a Sony Repair or Authorized Repair Center to have it fixed? The PS3 unit is currently in Shell Mera, Ecuador, South America. Is there an Authorized Sony Repair Center in Ecuador?

This is the number one problem with the PS3 so it's very common.

If you're in Ecuador I'd recommend fixing it yourself.

You can find tutorials on youtube and you can get a replacement laser on ebay.

First thing you need to do is take the PS3 apart and figure out which laser you have.

There are only two kinds.

If the bottom of the blu-ray drive is shiny then you have the KES-410A

If it's the other kind then you need KES-400A.

There are tutorials all over youtube on how to replace them.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

My play station does not seem to know when a disc is inserted the disca are spinning but it does not read them



This is a problem occurring in all the play station 3 consoles....... this is mainly because of the poor quality of the disc,.....as a result it leads to the damage of ur PS3 lens..............use good original discs........the heating effect is due to the long usage of pirated discs ...
check your lens if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

Play station three is not reading discs


Hello,

The problem is that the lens of your ps3 is either dirty or weak that it can no longer read any disc, i advice that you get a lens cleaner to clean the lens of your game, if after cleaning, problem persist, replace the lens on your ps3 so that your ps3 can continue to function as it use to function before.

Replace the lens on your ps3 and you will see that it will start reading discs.

Take care.

Hi,

This is an extremely common problem with the PS3 and is usually due to a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which can no longer read the disk.

Playstation 3 only reads playstation 2 games


this could be a problem with your blueray lens, the question you have given isnt really specific but, if it can play (ps2 games, cds or dvds) but not (blueray films or ps3 games) then it will be your blueray lens and will cost around £120 to repair from sony unless it is under warranty hope this helps..
