How do you realign the cars steering wheel

this is a specialised job and requires a tracking gauge and plumb lines and lot of patience to re-align to ackermans principles .i assume that the spokes on the steering wheel are not in alignment so someone has tracked this vehicle without adjusting each arm equally resulting in this fault ,and if its not reset right then you will have 2 turns to the right and 1 and a half to the left or similar so it has to be done properly and not just the steering wheel taken off and turned a bit on the splines .

My ps3 wont read my discs

well try putting in a music cd ORIGINAL as the tracks are wider and easier for the laser to read.. if it reads it your laser is going bad or may need to be cleaned, if it doesnt read that either your laser may have failed all the way and it needs to be refurbished or repaired.

My PS3 works fine, but the problem is that my PS3 won't load disks it only ejects. The only way I can load my disk is by turning it off and then turning it back on and then it starts loading my itself then...

The drive is out of alignment. Sometimes this can be fixed by pressing and holding the eject button for about 30-60 seconds. You will see the blue light start blinking and hear the drive gears moving. If this does not resolve the issue the blu-ray drive will need to be disassembled and the gears will need to be realigned. This is a very difficult procedure, even more so then replacing the blu-ray laser lens.

I moved my PS3 from one area to another area. When I hooked it back up the TV read that the PS3 was not turned off properly. My wife told me that she turned it off. But was incorrectly turned off...

Sounds like there is something loose inside of the dvd drive especially if it wasn't accepting discs before.

If you are savy enough, go inside of the ps3 and remove the dvd drive. Then unscrew the screws to the dvd drive, when you open it up there will be a white plastic piece on top that holds the dvds in place so the drive can read it, this piece might just need to be realigned properly.

If its not that then check to see if there is any loose debris in there and remove it, then put the screws back on the drive, hook it back up to the ps3 then put the top cover back and try the drive again. Should be okay at this point.

CD player won't read CD's!

I've been told CD players in cars need periodic "blowing out" to remove dust and debris. I would see if someone could do that for you, and you could try the cd head cleaner too.

PS3 Blu-Ray Drive Track Assembly

Open the console and remove the disc drive (1 ribbon cable and the power cable). Flip it on the part with the board and remove the 3 screws at the bottom and the 2 one at the top. Remove the cover Remove the 5 screws and open the drive like a book. As you have the drive laid down . carefully remove the guiding mechanism(1 screw) on the left side of the laser deck there is a plastic rail that rests on a small plastic wheel. Push back that rail as far as you can until it clears the gears located on the wheel (you should notice a slight lowering of the laser deck). Carefully put back the parts and before you put the cover hook it to the console and try. Hope this will solve your issue.
