Please try:

  • running another game bd
  • deleting any game file data (if any)
  1. if another game bd doesn't run, you got a problem with your disk reader (you'll have to buy a new one or take the system to warranty).
  2. if another game bd runs, and deleting the files doens't work, try restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your saved game data !!!)

For the last 2 days the Playstation will come on but will not read any disks. How do I get it to read disks again?


Hi try putting a normal dvd film in their and see if that will play not a bluray one just normal dvd, if it will then play a normal dvd then this means you need the bluray part replacing if it dont play the dvd then the chances are you need the whole dvd drive replacing,

one thing you can try yourself is if you go to a computer hardware store and buy a cd lense cleaning disk then run this in your ps3 and that will remove any build up of dust and may get it working.

if it dont check if you have any warranty left and take it back if you do, if it has run out then you will need to find someone who can supply and fit either the new bluray or the new dvd drive as its not an easy job to do as the dvd drive has to have the firmware put on it from your ps3 as the data is unique to each ps3 made so this will need flashing onto the new dvd drive if thats what it needs.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

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.

I have one of the older model playstation 3 consoles, it plays ps2 games as well. lately it's been having a hard time reading the ps3 discs. sometimes I have to take the disc out and put back in about ten...


The PS3 disk and the Bluray disk require more intensity from the laser or, depending which model you own, has a seperate lens to read them all together. PS2 games are equivilant to DVDs and then you have CDs at the bottom. Check out "how to clean my Bluray lens" on google. Might even check youtube. All you need is alcohol and q-tips. Don't press down too hard when cleaning and don't worry, the alcohol dries very quickly. Clean it with alchol then cleans again with dry q-tip. very easy.

NOTE: when removing the Bluray drive from the board, the ribbon clips "flip up" and DO NOT "pull out" like most PCs (computers) do....if you are familiar.

None of my ps3 games will play but normal dvds all work fine. any ideas?



well, the 40gig model of the ps3 can have either the dual laser lens, or the single laser lens in it. they started out with the KES-400A single laser lens, but somwhere along the line, they started putting the KES-410A dual laser lens in them, which is supposed to be a more reliable laser lens, but they do fail as well. the most common reason why a ps3 won't read ps3 games and bluray discs, but will read dvds or cds is because they have a red diode that only reads dvds and cds, and a blue diode that reads bluray and ps3 game discs. i would say your blue diode has kicked the bucket and needs to be replaced. you will either need to send the system to sony for repair, or to a third part company to have it replaced, or you can replace the laser lens assembly yourself

Hello, my ps3 will not always read ps3 games - all other media it reads fine, i have to insert the disk and eject over and over until it detects it? Also my play TV starts flickering within 10min of it...


Inserting and ejecting the game over and over will not cause your PS3 to read games. The bluray laser has gone out so it can no longer detect the bluray games and will need to be replaced to fix the problem. This can be done by any professional game console repair shop.

Ps3 not reading disc


See if a DVD works. For me, I know my Bluray is ruined because I can watch DVDs and play PS2 games fine but anything Bluray does not work. If a DVD does not work, you have more of a problem, if DVD does work you need a new BlueRay which Sony should take care of for you. If you don't have receipt, etc. like me you can buy a new Bluray (KES-400AAA) on Ebay and use this guide to install it http://edpsystemssupport.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=45.
Hope that helps.
