OK, there are a few things that needs clarity. What disc does not work? Did you test it with DVD and Blu Ray Games / Movies?

In general the PS3's are known for Blu Ray drive failures. If still under guarantee, have it sent back. If not, you can have it repaired or repair it yourself. There are a couple of vids on youtube on how to disasembel the PS3 and repair it yourself. It is a bit technical and there are a lot of springloaded parts that you will have to take care off. You will need a PS3 laser, the same model as in your drive. The most common ones that fail is the KES400AAA. You can also replace the whole Blu Ray drive (available on E-Bay). Just remember that the board attached to the drive is married to the motherboard and you will have to use the old board.

Have a game the wii wont read


Hi, Check and clean the disc. If the disc has too many finger prints it will be harder for the Wii to read. If that doesn't work try a laser cleaner disc. Good luck

When inserting game disc it says "disc cannot be read. Refer to the wii operations manual."


  1. Refer to the Wii operations manual.
  2. Try cleaning the disc with a lint-free cloth. Wipe the disc in strait lines, not in a circle.
  3. Don't move the Wii around while there is a disc in it. Do this to prevent further damage.
  4. Try a different disc, preferably one that is much cleaner. If it doesn't work, there is an internal error with the Wii.

When you put a disc in it reads open tray.


Hello ckpynn,
I have had this problem myself with my own Xbox 360. From my experience, I have noticed that the issue is usually caused due to the Xbox not being able to read the disc. This could be due to the laser inside the Xbox is dirty or damaged - or it could be the disc itself. I never attempted to repair this because I found that after about 5 or more tries, my Xbox was able to read the disc.
When you open the tray to put the disc in or to try and get the Xbox to read it, try rotating the disc a little bit and insert again.
If this doesn't work, you may need to contact Microsoft technical support for further assistance.

I just got halo 3 and it never worked. why?


Sounds like either the disc is defective or you disc reading laser is not functioning properly. You can easily figure this out, try a different game and if it works...then your Xbox is fine and the game is defective. If it doesn't work then it is probably safe to say your Xbox disc laser is not working.

Disc Reader not reading disc


You can try to Clean with dvd cleaning kits...if doesn´t work..the only way fix is to disassemble the 360 and force the dvd laser adjusting the micro pot...located under the laser unit..But you will loose warranty and I think that the best way is to send your game console to microsoft...what hurts is that $140,00 you can buy 02 or even 03 xbox drives on ebay. Choose the best way! Good Luck!
