Your PS3 may have overheating problems. If any of the fans are no longer working, it could slowly overheat. Also, you should keep it in an area where the air can circulate well.

If it is a fan issue, you could fix it yourself, but at your own risk! Opening the unit up could void any warranty that you may have, and if you don't know what you're doing, you could break it even further.

If your warranty is already void, you could open up the case, and run it without a cover to see if any fans are not working. If the inside is dusty, this can also lead to heat buildup, so you may wish to vacuum, dust, or wipe down the insides with a damp cloth. Just make sure that if you use a damp cloth, that you have unplugged the electrical cord, and do not turn it on again until you're absolutely sure that the insides have dried. Also, use water, and make sure it is only slightly damp. If you have any drops, it could mess things up.

    If the cooler has not solved the problem, then your unit is most likely defective somehow. I would send it in to Sony, if your warranty is still valid, and get a replacement unit. I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help.

try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

Playstation 3 wont play PS3 Games


ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3


BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps
