The torx bit that you need for disassembling your ps3 is a Tamper Resistant T10 Torx bit.

It can be found at amazon:

It is also available at several other sources.

You can try and clean the lens of the drive. Follow this link and watch the video then decide if you have the technical know how to do this sort of job. If not you can get the drive replaced through sony I believe it runs about 150$.You can create an online service request at this link.

SOURCE: ps3 wont read disks

If YOUR WARRANTY IS UP. taking the ps3 apart is easy as long as you have the rght screw drivers. getting the plate off is the hardest part. there is a hex screw under the warranty sticker. after removing the screw, simply slide the plate down and it will pull off. then there are about 8 philips head screws on the casing itself. after removing these screws the top is hinged on the front side of the system... lift the back untin it is at a 90 degree angle and and remove the flat wire that goes to the SDcard slots by lifting the black flapwith your fingernail, then the top is removed. at this point the disk drive is no longe fastened by any screws of clips. pull the plug from the left side toward the front out to diconnect that set of wires. then there is a big flat silver strip connected to the bottom of the drive. once again lift the black flap to release this strip.now you are ready to open the drive itself. there are 2 silver screws on the bottom rear of te drive and 3 black ones at the front. you will need a very small philips head screwdriver for these. then the gray casing will come off. thelense is not exposed yet. there are still 5 or 6 tiny black screws on the top of the drive that will remove the black plastic case THERE ARE 2 TINY WIRES COVERED BY TAPE BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO PULL ON THESE WHEN TAKING THE BLACK COVER OFF
. now the lenseis exposed. simply clean it with rubbing alcohol and q-tips and reassemble the machine. BE SURE NOT TO GET ANY OF THE WIRES PINCHED WHEN SETTING THE DRIVE BACK IN PLACE AND DONT FORGET THE LITTLE METAL GROUND ON THE RIGHT REAR OF THE DISK DRIVE. ANY ?S E-MAIL ME AT hartsedustin@yahoo.com

Isnt reading games


it Depends on the model but usually this happens because of dust or dirt on the lens so a cleaner may help. although if that doesn't work it means the laser has gone bad, which is a common problem with ps3's. Some newer models of ps3 have dual lasers so if the blu-ray laser fails you wont be able to play blu -ray disc (games, movies) but the other laser will still read dvds (non blu ray) and cds

My ps3 doesnt read games


your laser had stopped reading games and most likely bluray movies also sometimes they still read regular dvd's and music cd's sometimes non of then but I can guaranty is your laser you need to know what model you have because there is 2 different types of lasers for ps3 and you can install the laser your self or have someone do it for you we are a ps3 specialist we carry all major ps3 parts and accessories but if you can find somebody locally is better for you

Reads Blu-Rays and PS3 games but won't read DVD's or CD's?!?!


DVD portion of your blu-ray drive went out. It's a three part laser (cd / dvd/ blu-ray).

The ONLY way you're gonna be able to fix it is by replacing the blu-ray laser or by getting your machine serviced by Sony.

PS3 won't read any games but reads DVD movies, What's the problem


back up the hard drive then reset the ps3 back to the factory settings. then down load ver 2.60. If it still does not work you have a laser issue or board issue with the blu-ray drive.

My ps3 wont read ps3 games it only reads some ps1 games and some ps2 games.


This is the number one problem PS3 owners encounter. It's a Sony defect. The blu-ray drive is a three part laser ( cd / dvd / blu-ray). The blu-ray portion always goes out. That's why you're still able to play a few of your DVD PS1 and PS2 games.
