HI, this will occur when the optical lens assembly fails. this will require you to replace the entire optical lens assembly(lens has burned out or, possible spin motor failuer).

Contact Sony for this repair.

After inseerting the game, click the start we are told that the disk can't be read and to refer to the operators manual....why all of a sudden wont the game work?


The game could be scratched and there are numerous resources for how to fix the disk. You can try the one below.

You can also pay someone to fix it.

If it is only that disk that won't read, the problem is likely a scratch or some debris on the surface. If all your disks won't read, then you may need to have the Wii repaired as it could be a problem with the laser reader.

Will not read xbox 360 games and will not load


This is a common issue.
1. Make sure your disk is clean. Dirty disk can cause disk reading issues.
2. Clean the drive with a CD/DVD laser cleaner.
3. Replace the laser. You can get a replacement from Ebay for $10-15. Make sure you get the right one for you drive. There are several different models.

Sims life stories keeps freezing on my comp


The laptop maybe having problems reading the disk. Get the disk properly cleaned and get the disk drive looked at. It might be a problems with the CD Laser reader. Get it looked at... or get another disk for this game. There might be a script error on the disk so the laptop isnt reading it.
Hope this helps.

Can't run Halo 3 at all.


Next to cleaning your CD good, try also getting the laser eye cleaned as well, this might help. Also, if the disk is too scratched up then it will not read it, the scratches might be too deep.

Xbox doesnt read disks


If you have a Hard Disk Drive or Memory attached to the console, turn the console off and remove the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) unit and any attached Memory Unit (MU), then switch on your console and try the disc again. If this seems to resolve the issue, turn off your console, attach the HDD and MU again, and then delete any saved games for the game that is causing problems.
Note If it is possible to do so, save the games to a separate MU.
To find out how to remove and connect the Hard Disk Drive from your console, see the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
