PS3 Not working.

Hi all. My PS3 has not been loading my games recently and i have been told i need a new lens. I opened it up abd cleaned the lens and it is still not working, so i take it it is my lens that needs replacing. My question is, what is the model number of lens i need, is it a KEM 400 AAA or is it KES 410 ACA.
I have a 60 GB model.
Tanks.

My PS3 will not load games, movies or Blue Ray discs. Usually when a disk is put in, the orange light will blink for loading, but this does not happen. What do I do?


Yo!

You might not actually need to spend any money on a PS3 repair guide at all- instead you will need to purchase a new Blu Ray drive (or laser lens itself and simply replace the lens) But even before you do that try the following things:

  • Clean your game disks
  • Clean your Blu Ray drive (get one of those laser lens cleaning kits on eBay or Amazon)
If that doesn't work then I've got a free step-by-step PS3 repair guide that will show you with video and text instructions how to replace the Blu-Ray drive yourself. Its all online so you don't need to download anything either

Games will not load on my ps3


Hi,

This is a very typical indicator of a problem with the Bluray drive or more specifically the optical laser on the drive which is failing to read the disc. Sony charge $150 for this repair if the console is outside warranty.

You could try cleaning the lens on the laser as this can work sometimes but this requires you to open the console and most often the lens is faulty and needs to be changed. For more information on the lens and how to access it either to change it or clean it please see this FixYa Tip.

My ps3 wont load ps3 games


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

Ps3 wont load any games


Wow, someone who tried a lens cleaner first before asking, cool!!!
Alright, it still sounds like it might be the laser lens, but the dust is probably built up a bit more than a lens cleaner can deal with. This happens, and it sucks. But seeing as both your systems are still fairly new, they should also both still be under warranty, Contact sony and see about getting them repaired. Your only other option would be to open the cases and clean the lens' by hand with a Q-tip and some Iso Alcohol VERY CAREFULLY.

Ps3 wont read my disc or load my games my ps3 will load films and music but not games


You need a new KEM-400AAA which is the Blu-Ray drive itself. You can find it on ebay for around $55-$70 and find YouTube Videos on how to replace it yourself. This just recently happened to my PS3 along with my Nephews....

PS3 Loading game Problems


try picking up a lens cleaning disk. they have brushes on the bottom that clean your lens. you put the alcohol water solution on the rushes and then insert it into the drive of the ps3. that may work if you have the same problem with all your disks. if you don't have a problem with all your disks, it may be that your savegame is corrupt and you need to start a new one.
