You need to replace the laser and carriage drive of your ps3. Checkout ebay for around £50 you can get a new one, although you do have to fit it yourself, but there are help videos on youtube.

Can playstation act as dvd player or i should buy dvd player separately?


Yes, it can play DVD movies as well as Music CD'S and CD-R's music. You dont have to buy another machine. One tip thou when using it as a DVD plyr you might put it where ventilation can get to it - due to the overheating problem PS2 has. I use mine all the time, and I put a fan next to it, so I can play longer and watch movies longer. I hope this helps. Good Luck.

Trouble playing games


Some of your games or movies may have problems playing due to 2 issues.

1.> dirty / scratched cd or dvd : Clean each cd with alcohol to clean up any smudges. If the cd / dvd is badly scratched then most electronic & music stores sell a rubbing compound that can be used to buff out mild scratches.

2.> Dirty laser head. : Music & electronic stores sell a special dvd laser cleaning kit, usually around 20$ that should do the trick.

Remember always clean your cd / dvd's before you put them into your machine and always put them back in the case.

As far as hacks go, that will void your warrenty and generally is not a good idea, most hacks are firmware changes that once made can kill the ability to play some games or worse brick your system.

I have a sanyo 3 disc dvd changer. says no play


first of all you need to check your manuel for dvd's that can be played as in burnt. as of right no cd/dvd changers can play dvd that are burnt. cd's can be played if it states on player. only normal cd's and dvd's can be played. also check your disc for marks on them like fingerprints etc. if you want invest in a great player like sony, pioneer, i have no problem with these players.

My Sony DVP-cx995v stopped playing DVD's


I had the same "Cannot play" problem - happened suddenly, I don't think I was doing anything unruly at the time.

After checking repair (exchange) prices in excess of $250 from Sony, I decided to open the cover to see if I could see anything wrong - normally a futile exercise with electronics except that in the past I have cleared errant disks that have lodged themselves near the drive/player at the rear of the library.

Upon opening and watching the library try to load and play I noticed the drive itself was not spinning the disk once loaded. It would sit for awhile, thinking about it I'm sure, then would unload and load the next dvd, again failing to spin.

I thought okay, maybe try to spin the dvd while in the player to see if it's jammed or otherwise hard to turn. It was not hard to turn and spun freely. In fact, when I put my finger through the hole at the exposed side of the player at the hub to spin the dvd, clockwise, it suddenly started to spin - and play!

I put the whole thing back together to test and all seems to be working fine at this point. Not sure what would cause the motor to stop spinning and remain in that state through poweroff/on cycles etc. but I'm sure this is not the last time I will have trouble of this kind.

I would note that when replacing the library back in its home on the shelf, be careful not to tip the library, especially toward the player area because the disks will spill out of the carousel near the player and become jammed when you power it on and attempt to load. A final tip of the library away from the player area may clear this if you hear the disks rolling out of their slots and you don't want to open the top again (it's a darned heavy box when fully loaded).

Good luck!

Hp pavillion dv6835nr dvd player


Try this, put a DVD movie in the drive, then open windows explorer (Right click the start button, click explore) then see if you can read the DVD files on the DVD.

If you cannot browse the DVD then the DVD optics of the drive have failed and you will need to replace the drive.

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....

The laser has become damaged/worn-out. There is no fix for it as replacement parts are not made for it.
