The best way to do it is to buy a lens cleaner from Rite-Aid or Longs Drugs. They are fairly cheap to buy and work wonders. I would also invest in a can of air duster for those times in between lens cleaning.

My ps3 won't read ps3, ps1 or movies


Hi,

This is a typical indicator of a problem with the Bluray drive or more specifically the optical laser on the drive which is failing to read the other discs. Sony charge $150 for this repair if the console is outside warranty.

You could try cleaning the lens on the laser as this can work sometimes but this requires you to open the console and most often the lens is faulty and needs to be changed. For more information on the lens and how to access it either to change it or clean it please see this FixYa Tip.

HI, try cleaning the optics with a cleaning disk. if this dose not wake the lens Assembly, this will confirm major damage to the optics. you will need to replace the optical lens assembly in this case. it has failed.

Contact Sony for this type of repair.
