When on the Browser screen.....it blinks "Reading


Hi there,

What you need to do here is determine whether the problem is the disc itself or the PS3 drive. You can easily test to see if the problem is the disc by putting in another PS3 Game, Blu-Ray, or DVD. If it reads it, then the problem is the disc itself, not the PS3.

It could just be that the disc is a little dirty, or that a fingerprint is blocking the laser from reading the disc inside of the PS3. You can try cleaning it with a lightly-damped piece of toilet paper. You will also want to dry it off with a dry piece of toilet paper. If the PS3 still won`t read it, then the problem may be that it`s scratched. If this is the case, your best bet may be to go to Best Buy to purchase a kit that removes these kinds of scratches. Places like EB Games and Gamestop also have professional cleaners to clean these discs for a mere $5.00.
Now, if there are no discs that work inside your PS3, that indicates a problem with the laser inside the drive. There are means of cleaning the laser inside of the drive, but doing so will break the warranty seal. This means that your PS3 will no longer be covered under Sony warranty if it breaks down in the future.

If this is something you wish to pursue, then try following this YouTube video. If you have never opened up your PS3 before, you may benefit more from visuals than pre-written instructions. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-8NzYHr80

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

Ps3 will not read games.. the blue and green light are both on.. its not making any weird noise.. its seems as if its spinning and reading but the game icon wont pop up to indicate there is a game in...


This is unfortunately due to the Blu Ray lens developing a fault within the disk drive or becoming dirty. Usually it will still play DVD's but not Blu Ray discs or games. You could try a laser lens cleaning disc but 9 times out of 10 this doesnt usually work. I am guessing this is the new PS3 slim model you have trouble with, which I am pretty sure are still under a year old from launch date. In which case I would give Sony a ring as this should still be under warranty. They should offer you a replacement free of charge.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

Games are not registering.


Sounds like your ps3 is having trouble reading blu-ray discs, do you have any movies on blu-ray you can test?
The only solution really is to send it in for repair, hopefully you're still under warranty?

PS3 not reading discs.


Hey man, you can try this....

1. download and install a psn game or game demo
2. put in the disc of the game or video you want to play or watch
3. load the psn game or demo as if you were going to play it
4. quit the demo as soon as you get to the start menu of it
5. go and play or watch the game or video you wanted to, sucka, cause it works now!!!

I hope this works for you, and if it does, spread the word!

Ps3 wont read games


Try shutting down the ps3, unplug it from the wall and replug it. If it continues to not read it, try another game. If it can't read another game try a blu-ray movie if you have one. If it doesn't ready any of those then your blu-ray laser has failed. If that's the case then you will need to call Sony for a repair =(.

Hope this helps.

CD wont spin


You are unable to play your discs because the Blu-Ray Lens that enables the PS3 to read Blu-Ray movies or games has gone bad.

There is nothing you can do about it. You need to take it to an authorized Sony Service Center and get the lens replaced.

Won't read any disc


You need a new laser. I have repaired several of these (about 20) with the same problem, wont read discs. The laser can be purchased for $50 online, try ebay.
