SOURCE: PS3 disc loading problem

This is a dirty or bad bluray drive which seems to be the same as the 3 rings of death for the 360..
Buy a cd laser cleaner and try that if it does not work your laser diode is bad and a new laser is 50$ via ebay.. if you dont want to get to technical then you can buy a drive for 120ish and switch them out.

Sony will charge 150$ + to fix it other then that there is no way around it.. and I believe you need a proof of purchase to get the warranty. I really hope the cd cleaner works but if not then your stuck...

You can sell it on ebay and if its a 60gb you can get about 200 for it... then buy a like new 40gb ps3 for 300ish I have seen just consoles sell at 290 incl shipping. Best of luck!
If you are happy please feel free to rate me THANKS!

SOURCE: My PS3 won't play an disc games, the disc icon doesn't even show

Sadly there currently is no fix for this problem. I've also had this same problem and contacted Sony about it.

You need to send it in to them to get it serviced. You can do this at:

www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3
or
uk.playstation.com/help-support/ps3

If your warrenty has expired it will cost around $180.

Hope This Helps. Also be sure to rate whether it did or not.

SOURCE: My PS3 won't play PS3 Games

I called Sony and they helped me resolved this same problem...


1. Turn off the ps3.
2. press down on the on/off button on the front of ps3 while turning on the button from the back. DO not let it go until you hear 2 beeps and will show a red light.
3. press the on/off button again and do not let it go until you hear 1 beep, paused, and two beeps. Let it go.
4. There should be a prompt asking you what to do. If you have hdmi, answer all the question yes etc.
5 there should be a menu list asking what you need done.. setting wise..

6. Choose the # 3rd list (not sure how many they were).
7. IF it tells you that your data is corrupted etc.. just click ok
8. wait till progress ends ( if it tells your your data is corrupted again, just click ok again).
9. It's going to do some loading again...
10.. end of restoring and you should see your ps3 menu..

When inshirting movies dvd in dvd player showing message on dvd players screen no disc and cant play movies dvd why?


it could be the disc itself dvds really don't age that well a common problem is that one day they just decide to freeze and stop working even though they had only been played a few times the most extreme would be your situation. I would suggest trying newer dvds out if same problem occurs then it is a problem with the dvd player.

Ps3 won't let me play online but it let's me sign


Hi, the reason you are experiencing this issue is because the Playstation Network is still not up and running in all areas. It is only working in some. You best bet is to just stop trying to sign in to get on-line and play your games normally off-line until the issue is resolved. They will most likely release an update when it is time for it to be up and running in your area.

I hope this helps!

I have one of the PS3's that still plays PS and PS2 games. As of two days ago it has started doing odd things with DVDs. It allows us to watch the first episode and then returns to the PS3 home screen....



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

....................try to update your system


if its working good then better download this Repair Guide for further information .........

160gb ps3 won't play games or bluray discs


Your PS3 may not be freezing entirely. Look in the top right hand corner of the screen, if the loading sphere is there you've nothing to worry about, and I would reccomend just waiting it out (it unfreezes). If it is not there it is a legitimate freeze and would reccomend sending it off and/or updating the system firmware.
