Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The console doesn't read the disc
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.
