Tip

TO FIX PS3'S THAT AREN'T READING DISC'S


Hi FixYa community,

I thought I should pass thing tip along, seeing as how so many people are having trouble.

It is a solution for PS3 fat models (the old ones). If your PS3 has suddenly stopped reading disc's it might not be the laser, it could just be a type of data corruption, but there is a way around it.

Go onto the PlayStation Network and download any game demo. Install the demo. Insert the game you want to play. Now go into the demo game that you downloaded and installed as if you were going to play it. As soon as it loads, quit out of the demo and go back to the main menu of your PS3; the game you wanted to play should now be available. ENJOY!

If this tip doesn't work then sorry, it is your blu-ray laser, however, it has worked for myself and one other that I know of. Hope it works for you too!

Ps3 wont read games or dvds what should i do?


I HOPE EVERYONE READS THIS AS IT'S LIKELY A (FREE) SOLUTION TO YOUR WOES.

My ps3 recently conked out on me and the local game store (and the internet) told me it was a broken laser.

I told them that I couldn't play video games, not even ps2 games. They still said it was a broken laser.

When I found out it would be 140 bucks to have it replaced and installed I decided to just download some demos.

HERE'S WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING.

I went on the playstation network (psn) and downloaded a game demo, installed it, and played it. When I quit out of the demo, the laser was reading and I could play games!

When I turned off the system and tried again the next day, again it didn't work.

I followed the same process. Went into a downloaded game, this time quit right after the demo loaded, and sure enough, the laser was working again!

Every time I quit a game I have to follow this process, but every time it works, too.

So again:

1. download and install a psn game or game demo
2. put the disc of the game you want to play
3. load the psn game or demo as if you were going to play it
4. quit the demo as soon as you get to the start menu of it
5. go and play the game you wanted to, sucka, cause it works now!!!

I hope this works for you, and if it does, spread the word!

i had same problem. ps3 was reading and then not reading discs off and on. finally it totally went out and would no longer read any type of disc. it would still play demos and get on web etc but wouldn't read any type of disc. u need to call sony's 1 800 # and they will repair it for free if u have a proof of purchase under a year if no i heard they charge around 150. if u purchased it from a gamestop and u don't have ur receipt u can call them and have them fax it to sony cause they take ur info when u buy one from there

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
