    It does not play any off the games. It hasnt been moved or bumped and it worked fine 1 day then the next day it would not work. Because i dont have a receipt cos it was bought as a presant sony wont fix or replace it unless i pay £100 quid. Is there any other cheaper way i can get this done?

Does this happen with every game or just one particular game?

If it's not loading, then its your laser and it would have to be replaced more than likely.


Did anyone bump the the console or move it while it was spinning? These are the main causes for lasers going bad.

    They're an extended warranty company who has contracts with the major gaming systems and will be able to repair this for you. At a cheaper price I'd imagine.

PS3 stopped loading discs


Cleaning the laser on the PS3 rarely, if ever helps.

It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.
