Pretty sure its your laser, mine was doing the same thing, you might need to clean it before replacing it though. If you do need to replace it, the part runs at about 70 usd.

Ps3 not loading disk


Here is how you can fix the not loading/reading disk on PS3.The problem is with the sensors under the Blu-ray drive that are not making contact with the base of the system. So, the first thing to do is open the PS3. Then, you slightly put pressure over the area where the disc loads and after this your disc should begin recognizing all discs inserted and will load a disc without any problems. This should fix your problem. If this does not fix your problem, you will need to send your PS3 to Sony to have it repaired by specialists.

Red light flashes when turned on, cant even eject disc


Try to do these 3 things.1 - Restart your console.
2 - Take out all cables, and plug them back in.
3 - Take out the hard-drive, and place it back in your PS3 console.

Try this to take the disc out:
1. turn the PS3 off from the back
2. Put a finger on eject button
3. then turn PS3 on from back with finger still on eject button
4. disk should come out

Playstation won't work


that usually only happens when the hard drive was taken out and a different one from a different ps3 was put in its place... the ps3 doesnt recognize the info on the hard drive that was written by a different ps3.

I turned off my ps3 system while saving now it wont play any disc


IF YOU ARE UNDER WARRANTY SEND IT IN!Try "restoring file system" first. If that doesn't work listen to the drive very close where you insert a disk. If it sound like it is spinning then you probably have a dirty Bluray lens and alcohol and Q-tip fixes it just fine. If you here a "studder" noise (usually in 2 intervals) then you need a new Bluray lens. This tells you which one you need.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.

2 discs stuck in PS3


the disk feed system doesnt have enough room to feed 2 disks at once OUT of the system. you can try and tilt the system VERY CARFULLY and see if you can get the disks ejected. if not, you can just bring the ps3 into somewhere that can treat those types of things like a gamestop or call customer service to see what you can do.

Ps3 not spinning disk


Hello.

When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first. Otherwise the laser assembly needs to be replaced in the BR drive.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
