I had a similar problem. My PS3 was not starting the game discs when I inserted those to PS3. Also those game discs were not visible in the game menu. I did not have problems with the normal movie DVDs or Movie Blu Rays. Those were working fine.

In case you have the similar problem, you should try the following steps;

The PS3 has a special Recovery Menu, which you can access in the following way;:

1. Turn off Playstation 3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION 3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION 3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 System

Select option "Rebuild Database".

After PS3 has executed this DB rebuilding operation, the disc games will be visible again in the menu and are starting automatically when inserted to PS3.

How to fix ps3 not reading disk


It's not reading any kind of disc, or just that specific disk? Your problem is either with the disk itself or the PS3's disc reader. If it's with the latter, you will want to contact Sony so that they can repair your disc reader. There should be a number for this in the back of your PS3's user manual.

My playstation will not read disc can you tell me


it may sound absurd but this could mainly be because of a fault with the hard disk... i had the same problem but realized the hard disk had become faulty probably due to overheating. what you will need to do is see if you can successfully format it and try runnning your disks again.. if they are still giving you problems you mah have to purchase a 3.5'' hard disk from any computer store(its quite cheap) then jus follow your manual as to how to replace it from the back of the ps3... and voila.. your ps3 will work as good as new

It sounds like your laser is going bad. This is a common issue for the PS3. The tell-tale sign is it starts reading less and less and having more errors.
