Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The game console has no problem functioning on the home screen. It can create new users, change the settings, and has no problem firing up. The only problem is when you put a disc in a dvd or a ps3 game the white loading circle in the top right of the screen just keeps spinning and the console itself doesnt not read the disc. The system will sit there for ten minutes and its like there is no disc in the machine there is no sign of the game being read what so ever the same with dvd's or playstation 2 games. The games began freezing about a month and a half ago along with the dvd's and eventually the playstation 3 did not even read the discs and it hsa been this way for about 3-5 weeks,

Juan is correct, Your laser has gone bad. If your drive still takes and ejects games then you are a step ahead just means you need a laser.. It happens often Replacing the laser is very easy there are a few videos on youtube to help you... Check ebay for lasers can usually find them for 69 with free shipping.... depending on the age you probably need a KES-400A Especially if you have a 20GB or a 60Gb 90 Percent of all 40GB use that laser also but if you have a 80Gb you may need the other unless your 80GB system has 4 usb ports and is backwards compatible. If so then KES-400A is it
