Re: not reading discs

Try a different disc. Get a good quality DVD lens cleaning kit. Follow the direction on the lens cleaner disc carefully. If this does not solve your problem, you will need to contact SONY at , as the phone lines are jammed. Too many of the PS3 consoles are dying. Sonce you lost your receipt, you need to possibly contact the store where you got it,or check your Credit card company for information. Lots of times the Store will have backup of the receipt. You may have to go to both the Credit card co. to get info to take to the store.

Ps3 not reading disc..Please help

Do you see the little clock like icon in the top right corner of the screen when you first insert a disc the loading disc icon? if so then it could either just be the drive itself or a software issue in which case you can try a few things before replaceing the drive.

First just reset to factory default settings under system settings.

P.S. i assume its not reading any kind of disc if it isnt reading anything also double check to make sure the disc you are using are still good and not just really dirty or scratched. GIve us more info and what disc your trying to check so we can further help you out.

PS3 stopped loading discs

Cleaning the laser on the PS3 rarely, if ever helps.

It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

the blu ray laser will have been slightly overheated and as a result will need to be replaced.
