My ps3 wont reconise any disk but everything else is fine


Ok ill tell you what you need to do,
1 try putting a standard music cd in the ps3 and see if that will play.
if it plays you need to get the bluray player replaced.
if it wont play music cd or standard dvd then this points to the fact either you have a dusty laser leans or it could mean the laser has give up and you need the whole drive replacing.

try going to hardware store and buying a cd leans cleaning cd and run this in your ps3 to remove any dust do this before taking your ps3 apart.

if you have any warranty left dont take it apart if your warranty has ran out ill tell you what to do.

first of all you need to take the case off the ps3 use google and type in how to repair ps3 then hit search this will list sites that tell you and show you how to take the ps3 apart doing this voids your warranty and will reduce the price when you come to sell it.
2 once its apart take out the dvd drive its held in only by 2 wires you pull the power wire out of the circuit board and tilt the drive to the right giving you access to the data ribbon you then need to undo the clip holding the data ribbon to the circuit board
3 now you have the dvd drive out take a not of what make and model it is then have a look on the auction site and buy the exact same type.

4 now you cant just replace the whole dvd drive with a new one as the dvd drive in your ps3 will only work with your ps3 so a new drive will not work on its won so you need to do the following.

5 remove the 4 screws from the bottom of the dvd drive if the circuit board is not visible on the bottom of the drive, if the circuit board is visible then undo the screws holding the circuit board to the dvd drive and then undo the data ribbons that run from the laser to this circuit board, once you have undone these make sure you dont break the thin black and red wire that is pushed into the dvd drive motor once this is uncliped you can remove this circuit board from the dvd drive

6 now when the new drive comes you need to repeat the process and take out the circuit board on the new drive and replace it with the circuit board from your old drive, doing this is the only way you can replace the drive without paying 150 toy sony to flash the firmware on the ps3 and the new drive so swapping this circuit board gets round this and allows you to do the repair yourself, if you dont swap this part over it wont work when you put it all back together you will just get a load of error so swapping this circuit board over is important.

you will also need a special start shaped tool to undo the bolt under the warranty sticker and rubber bung at one end of the ps3 once you have undone this screw it will allow you to slide the top off revealing all the screw you need to undo, now thats the easy part replacing the circuit board on the dvd drive is very fiddly so take your time and get it right.


if you need any further assistance give me a shout back as i repair these day in day out so i can more or less do it in my sleep, if you get stuck or need help give me a shout back and ill be glad to assist you further ok

please dont attempt this repair if you are unsure or dont mind the chance of doing more harm, its not easy to do and can be a nightmare if you get mixed up or lose parts, if you have any warranty left go on the sony site and lodge for repair, this may be covered by up to 3 years so check on the official ps3 site to find out if you have any warranty left.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Ps3 dismantle instructions


1. To remove drive you only need to remove small plastic door with fine flat screw driver under small **** towards the front of console then undo blue screw and slide drive towards front of console and pull straight out. Be careful not to press on any of the drive's surfaces especially where the label is as head or platter will be damaged!

2. To dismantle the rest of the console, remove sticker on left side of console, remove rubber plug/ foot, undo tamper proof screw with correcy T15 star driver, and slide false plastic cover towards you. Then you have several philips head screws all marked with arrows to undo after which the top can be removed straight up. When removing or disturbing the optical drive be careful not to damage the heat transfer pad under the drive as the electronics of the drive will then overheat. The rest should be easy!
Good luck!

Cleaning the filter


Is it a recessed star, or a raised star? If it is recessed, the tool is called torx. Most of your better tool suppliers will have them. The raised star.... I cant help you.
