Cleaning is a good first step, however, the surface of the objective lens is not the only thing that gets dirty. The bottom of the objective lens gets a fair amount of gunk also, and that needs to be addressed. Never mind the half mirror, which suffers from the same malady. If your laser is still functioning, and you want to try this yourself, just remember to "count the turns" on any screws or other adjusements that you my disturb. A 'scope is really nice to tweak the final adjustment, but is not always necessary. Just be sure that the laser isn't on its last leads (joke) as the power will continue to rise to compensate for crud on any optic surface, and result in laser death.

    Ok , what you need is a new laser. The 7000 series lasers lens are now made of a light plastic.  A way for Sony to save money on Raw materials and shipping costs. What happens is your disc gets sort of dirty and the laser keeps working and owrking to read the dirty part.  Eventualy enough heat builds up the the laser actually begins to melt.  I run the Playstation Clinic and repair PS2 slims with the same problem as yours. All I can do is replace the laser. You can do it yourself  by getting a PS2 slim lens from www.repairmyvideogame.com  for about $15 or send your slim to me and I will get the laser lens and replace it for you for $35 plus shipping.  I am at www.playstationclinic.com

My ps3 has a problem reading all disks i put in, the spinning icon appears at the top right of the screen but nothing happens, this also happened when I tried playing a demo I downloaded


Hi there,

If your Ps3 has trouble reading all discs, then the lens could hardly read them due to it being dirty. Try to use a disc cleaner and let it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not work, you need to manually clean the lens opening the casing and removing the screws covering the lens. Get a cotton swab and damp it to an alcohol. Gently wipe the lens' surface and let it dry. Then return everything back and try playing those dics again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My Wii says it is unable to read the dics inserted that I should refer to the manual for troubleshooting


Yes try cleaning this with a Drive cleaning kit also check your disc for scratches only after this does not work with the cleaning cd you need to call nintendo for service to replace the optical drive in this more the likely its just dirty. Kids not sayin they did or even adults handle these game disk and are not careful the unit gets dirty and the disk gets ascratched this throwd the optical pickup laser off in these units and with this constant playing it goes out. Try the cleaning kit if that does not work proccess warranty if there is any or send for service.
