SOURCE: Hi I have a ps3 slim and it just recently stopped

He is full of **** trying to scam you. It sounds like your disc drive is out of alignment with the top part of the disc drive so the clicking your hearing is the bottom of your disc drive trying to eject and the top is holding its on as the top has sliding parts that meet perfectly with the bottom part of the disc drive so it sucks the game in and out. You need to open it yourself with a philips head screwdriver you dont have to worry about the motherboard or any other part just take the drive out undo the ribbons connect the drive to the motherboard then it should pop right out. Been awhile since I took a slim apart they dont break as often (yet). From here you should have a metal caseing over the disc drive maybe not with the slim. You pop the metal caseing off the you have a plastic disc drive. Take the top part off maybe requires small phillips screw driver. Since you have a disc in it when you take the lid off hook the cables back to the ps3 motherboard and to the cd drive. Now press eject with the top lid off. Then put the top lid back on and insert a disc it should work. Then just put it back together. Theres a little motherboard on that cd drive do not short it out on anything. You can do this if you cant worst is youll have to buy a new cd drive from the repair shop you mentioned. Then they should charge to much labor to put it back together as you had it apart when you got there. But you should beable to do it if you need help taking it apart just google or youtube slim ps3 disc drive repair or how to take apart slim ps3. Hope this helps if not let me know.

SOURCE: My ps3 slim 160 gb will not show game disk in the

Does this problem occur with only one game disc? If so, there might be excessive scratching on this disc. If not, I am afraid your PS3 has a problem with the laser reading the discs. The laser can be replaced, tho. You shouldn't mess with it yourself, take it to a specialist.

PS3 stuck on red light after it froze up. I unplugged it and replugged it and it's still stuck on the red light. It doesn't change or anything even after hitting the power button.


It would help, if you posted the model number of your system, as they do vary sightly. Is there a disk inside they system? This could be the main problem in witch there are several solutions to remove it. If not, than try inserting a disk, as the PS3 auto recognizes a disk being inserted and turns on the system. If the light is on, and it wont let you power it on, then generally it's the stuck disk problem. ^^ Hope this helps, and good luck.

How to make sure your disk is inserted properly in a ps2 slim


usually when people are in a rush and they don't realize that they havent put the disk in right in a ps2 slim and it says the disk could not be read. there is a way of checking.when you put a disc into the console make sure you here three clicks. these clicks can be slow or fast. another way to check is probably listening to the playstation when you turn it on.if it continuously clicks that means that the disk isnt inserted properly these two ways save your playstation from the disc overspinning or crashing

I have a ps3 slim slide top and i can play call of duty black opps but i cant put in gta5 and the disk will spin but then it quits and it dont show the disk icon please i need help with it


Dalton, the model of PS3 you have has officially been named "Super Slim". There are only a few obvious reasons why GTA5 isn't working. Is the disk dirty or scratched in any way? Also, it could be a bad copy of the game. Try taking it to a friend's house and trying the game there. If it works, you have a bigger issue than just the disk. Also, make sure to blow, or use compressed air to clean the laser inside the system. It won't hurt it, and may help. Good luck, and hope this helps.

When i plug my ps3 slim in, it automatically turns on, then a blue light around the disk drive and such appears. Then the system turns off and the light stays there.


It might be a power supply glitch after its unplugged and then plugged back in. It sounds similar to what my Wii does now and then. I just turn it on, let it boot, then off, and it usually solves the problem.

Disk wont eject for ps3


If it's a fat system you'll have to have Sony fix it: 1 800 345 7669

If it's a slim:
1)
With the front of the console facing towards you, carefully turn the console over so that the reverse side is now facing upwards. Locate the HDD screw cover

2)
Lift and remove the HDD screw cover and insert a cross headed screwdriver into the location on the right.
The screw on the left holds the HDD in place. This should not be opened if attempting to eject a disk.

3) Once the corresponding groove is found, turn the screwdriver anti-clockwise (see below) to begin the release mechanism. The disk will slowly be ejected:


4) Remove the disk and replace the HDD screw cover.

Ps3 loads most games first time however after about 20 mins of playing battlefield BC 2 the sound stops working i can hear people talk through headset but no game sounds when i reset and insert the game...


Hi Danny41,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.

Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: my ps3 slim wont read any disks...


Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 'see' or read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.


The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa
