Playstation 3 CD Drive

When I try to insert any game cd or dvd it will only go in halfway, it sounds like it is trying to take it in, seams like a gear is jammed or something. Is there anyway to fix it besides sending it back to the manufacturer?

Hi WRSCenter, It sounds like something foriegn has entered the Blue Ray drive. I really hate to hear you have to open the PS3 as it is under warranty. Only problem is do you have the receipt. Sony is not that bad, I just got a PSP repaired, and it only took 10 days. I got a refurbshed one that worked perfectly. If you gung ho and want to fix it yourself, here we go. Go to www.llama.com and see how to dismantle the PS3 in picures and text. Once you get the Blue ray drive out, remove the cover and get the foriegn material out. Put it back together. Hope this helps. I do suggest sending it to sony though. You can also send it to me at www.PlaystationClinic.com

I am having trouble with my playstation 3 console. It appears that the console is not recognizing the game CD. How can I know for sure.


Try a different game? Is the game you're trying to play scratched or dirty? If not and no other games work, try a lens cleaner cd. If still no joy then it sounds like you have a faulty disk drive.
Hope this helps.

Tip

Disk stuck inside PS3 ? Try this.


1. Try turning the ps3 on and off and then hitting eject.

2. Do Not try to open up the playstation. You may do more damage than good.

3. Try to halfway insert another game, cd, or dvd into the playstation 3 and press eject.

4. Here's the one that worked for me. I slid another compact disc into the console almost all the way but still holding on to it and pushed up as I pulled the disc back out. To my suprise another disc began to slide out with it. I had no idea how many discs were actually inside the ps3, but when I hit eject the original game that was in there still would not come out, so I new something still wasn't right. I repeated the process a few more times and low and behold, I had a total count of four, aside from the game.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

Playstation don't read cd


The most common reason for the games not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!

Take care.

PS3 Playstation 3 Disassembly, Forgot to Remove disc.


its not the drive thinking there is a cd in there. when you re assembled it the motor that draws the disc in would have moved slightly so it thinks it pulls the disc in when it hasnt actually reached the end. take it apart and ensure it is retracted completley befor carefully re assembling. good luck

My PS3 playd cd dvd but not blue ray games


Problem with the laser it sounds like. If you still have the system apart with the dvd drive out, go ahead and replace the laser. You can usually find them on Ebay.

It says..please insert a playstaion or playstation 2 disc format.


It's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

Sony Playstation 3 does not read dvd blurau nothing


Check for any scratches on the game disc. If that doesn't work then turn off the system completely with the main power switch located on the back of the console to restart the system and try again, If somehow that doesnt work call Sony technical support so they can try to solve the problem.
