Incase you dont have a valid warranty , you will have to opn your shiny ps3, *check youtube "ps3 blueray disassembly) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNW1IK0Gyt4
*when you are through the metal covers of blueray drive , you will see 2 thin wires ,(black and red) never pull them to pull off the socket, use two metal sticks to pull the yellow plastic socket
*keep watching the youtube video , untill you see the lens, wipe it clean and reassemble the ps3. inspect the mechanism.
*get everything back to what it was , try again

My ps3 wont read disk but turns on but i cant play games.....WHAT DO I NEED NEW ON MY PS3


You either need to send it in for a new disk drive, or there may be a new update you have not gotten, keeping you from reading disks (unlikely) you should send it in.

My ps3 cant play any discs at all but works fine for internet


Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.

The symptoms you describe are typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please view this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

My ps3 cant play any discs at all but works fine for internet


Hi,

This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is usually the first indicator that the Bluray drive is malfunctioning. This can most often be pinpointed to the laser lens within the drive which is failing to read information from the disk.

For a full breakdown on the issues and solutions involved with this please view this FixYa Tip.

If the solution helps - please do leave a vote for it.

Thanks.

Ps3 disk read error


Hello,

This problem has something to do with your PS3's lens. It may have gone bad too. This happened to me too and I brought my PS3 to sony. The culprit was bad lens.

I hope this helps. Have a nice day.
