I would use your ebay protection plan, it appears to be defective.

Ps3 wont accept a disc


which version of Ps3 is it?
Fat, slim or superslim
with the flat and slim it could be many a thing and you are unable to find out without opening it, if i was you and i had a fat/slim I would go and look for a used Blu-ray disc drive and install it in myself...if you dont want to do that bring your Ps to a local Video Game shop that does repairs

My PS3 does not play anything at all blue ray ps3 ps2 ps1 nada nothing and not music or normal vids so can anyone help me with thi sproblem i have


Hi, this is a very common problem with the PS3 and usually means the blu ray laser has become faulty. You can either give Sony a call and if it is under 1 year old they will replace it free of charge or you may have to pay around £130 for it to be repaired. You could try using a lens cleaner disc and see if that helps. Lastly you can have a look on ebay for a replacement drive. They usually sell for around £50 and are very easy to replace. If you google PS3 blu ray replacement you will find youtube guides on how to do it. You must however make sure you know the model of your PS3. It is on a white label on the back of the console and it starts CECH---. Next if you do replace the drive you will need to keep the circuit board that is screwed onto your drive as this is paired to the motherboard. If you do not swap the circuit boards the drive will never work. Have a look on youtube, the guides are pretty easy to follow.

Hope this helps

No disc drive


This is a very common problem.

It probably 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.


You can buy these online at may online stores or eBay.

PS3 BluRay Drive Issue

PS3 won't read discs of any kind at all. We have an old PS3 (husband says the biggest one) that was the first kind to come out. Recently we have found that the PS3 no longer reads any of our games or DVDs....


the laser has gone bad in the dvd drive. You can either replace the laser if you know how to get into the dvd drive or just replace the dvd drive itself. You can find them on Ebay at a decent price.
