You need to replace the blu-ray laser. You can order a replacement laser from the internet / ebay and check out some videos on youtube for the install. It's not hard. Average cost including parts / tools / etc should be under $100. OR you could send it into Sony for repair which will run $150+

You can reach Sony @ 1-800-345-Sony

OR you can check Craigslist if you're in a major city for someone to repair.

Your biggest concern should be the quality of the laser you buy. They ONLY last 1-3 years with average use so getting a new or quality replacement laser is key to avoiding the problem again the future.

ALSO you could try updating the firmware to 2.70, if you haven't already. I've seen this solution work on a few RARE occasions. It's free and easy so you might as well try.

And finally BEFORE replacing the laser you could open the PS3 and clean the laser with a q-tip. There tons of videos on youtube showing you the procedure. Just make sure you don't use anything but a DRY q-tip, no matter what the anyone says.

If you have any more questions hit me up. I'm a PS3 EXPERT.

Daenyx TV DVD Player Error


You either have a dirty optical pickup or a bad one in the unit--it reads the disc.

They do make a cleaning disc but that is only 50-50 chance(sometimes a disc gets put in with some kind of residue on it)

If bad the built in player will cost more to fix/replace than a cheap external unit connected to rear inputs in place of it--this is the real issue with combo units--usually cheaply made etc.

Disc error


It means either the optical pickup trying to read the disc is dirty or bad.

If bad--it may not be cost effective to repair that unit.

No disc error even with DVD inside the player


I am sure that you have tried using another DVD.
Try putting a Music CD and see if it can read it.
In any case, even if the CD works, it looks that you have a faulty unit the laser on the drive is probably bad now but just in case it is just dirty, try to clean it with a Cleaning Disk and see if the problem disappear.

Won't record on blank disc.


Bulk disc that comes in cylinder case are some time faulty and loses quality because they packed on each other. The lens of the disc are sensitive so if disc is scratch or dirty will get error message "no read". Turn the unit off then unplug ac power cord for more than two minutes then reconnect and try disc again, if issue still exist purchase disc that comes in individual case.

Sanyo DVW 7200 Disc Error


check to see if the disc spins......As in place the disc in the DVD player with the label in a position that is readable to you....Put the disc in close the tray and wait a few seconds. Open the tray and se if the disc actualy has moved. If it hasent then the motor is bad and not worth replacing!
