Re: ps3 read errors

MOst of the probs I have seen have been after one of the new version upgrades mine crahed IMMEDIATELY after uploading the updates from Assassins Creed. I have heard tons about this happening immediately after updating w/ other versions. So I will beware when I have to update in the future.

Its 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.

There is a fault with the laser unit in the PS3. This is similar to the PS2 DRE problems and usually replacing the laser fixes it.

My ps3 console not reading disc

Hello. When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you.

Ps3 disk reading error

Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.
