Question about Sony PlayStation 3 40GB System
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.

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 .........
all the best..

There are two main problems to be listed for this issue.
There might be a problem with the lens or the disc might be dirty
try with some other disc. Still you face the same problem you should change
Any local Play Station repair guy can fix the lens.
