Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

PS3 no longer shows DVD or games.

After I insert a DVD or game, the icon no longer displays and nothing plays. So far I find the solution is a new laser but I'm not sure what is the part I need to purchase. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks
HB

Does it play DVD movies? If yes then it needs the laser replaced. We can do it for $75. We are a listed repair service on this site.

Can't play games or movies


you have a disc read error on your ps3. you can either send it to sony and pay 150 if not under warrenty, or you can get a whole new disc drive for about 50-60 bucks on ebay. you can find a video on youtube on how to install it yourself. its pretty simple.
