SOURCE: Ps3 wont read ps3 games

It sounds to me like you might have a dirty laser inside the ps3, which could put a real strain on the reading of disks, your ps3 should have warranty left on it if not there are people who can replace this for around 30-40 quid
hope this helps.

PS3 stopped reading PS3 games


This is most likely do to a previous freeze up while on the PS3. All you have to do is to first disconnect all of the plugs and wires. Then you put them back in and turn on the PS3. It should read your PS3 game discs.

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

PS3 Not Reading Games


If you have this problem it is because the laser has shifted from where it needs to be and the good news is that it is not that hard to fix all you need is a good repair guide.


You can of course send it in but the disc reading issue you should be able to fix in less than 1 hour from home.

ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.
