Hi there.

If this happens only with few games then the disk may be dirty or scratched.

If this happens with all games then the lens is dirty.

An old way for cleaning CD was by washing them under tap water, then dying them with a soft cloth, without leaving hairs. Today you'll better buy a cleaning kit : DVD/CD DISC CLEANER-CD CLEAN SOLUTION.
If disks are really in bad shape try Digital Innovations DvdDR Motorized Disc Cleaner CD/DVD cleaning kit

If the lens is dirty, and you get the problem with all disks or almost, then try using a cleaner disk: Memorex 6 Brush Laser Lens Cleaner Cleaning disk - CD / DVD - PC or Philips DVD Laser Lens Cleaner Cleaning disk - CD / DVD.

If that does not work, then the PS must be taken apart, to clean the lens with extra soft Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol,as water will leave spots on the lens.
However, before taking that step, I will suggest calling Sony and listening to what they have to say.

Wheni put a disc in the ps3 it does not load up so i cant play on games my software version is 3.21


hi,

The most common reason for the PS3 not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your PS3 including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your PS3 going again!
Hope this will help...

Ps3 game fallout 3 won't load but other games do, which makes me think that the ps3 is ok. Fallout 3 used to load but now it won't. Any suggestions the game is new from christmas.


You should check the disc for scratches and spots, then clean it. If it still doesn't load there might be something wrong with the disc that you cannot see. Check these and I hope it helps

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.

Ps3 disc,s wont load. in fact no disc loads can anyone help?


Need more information. What do you mean you haven't been able to load anything since? What game is it? What version of the PS3 system's XMB are you running? Version 2.2 came out last night. Try updating.
