Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Ok, im going to try to make this quick. ok, i come home from school, turn on my PS3, put in a game, and nothing happens. I try another game, same thing, restart consol, again, same thing. After a while I determine that the disk is turning, so i know my disk drive isnt broken. I also try to play a CD and a DVD, both work. I put ina game, again, nothing. I then get bored play a demo, durring the demo i hit the PS button and notice that the game disk is showing up on the XMB, i click it, play it, no problems. I turn the system off, restart, no disk again. I start a demo, hit PS button, go to the game, then quit the demo and go back to XMB on the home screen, and the game is there. but if I take the game out and put it back in, its gone. So i can still play games, its just annoying, so if anyone else has had this problem, or knows a solution, please help. thanks
This is a very common problem.
It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.
You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.
You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.
Sony will repair it for a whopping $150 USD plus shipping, or you can get a third party repair place to do it for probably $80-$120.
