It sounds to me like your BLuRay drive or your Drive Sensor has crapped out.... I would take this to a local video game repair shop.

Is it still under warranty ?

If not I have seen both these parts on ebay...

Drive with sensor is $65 shipped and sensor alone is $25 shipped... hope this helps.

My ps3 wont accept any disc. try putting it in but it stays there. Also when i try to put it in the blue light comes on but the game is not in the system, and when i push the blue button afterwards, it...


Hi Sef,

If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.

Causes:

The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that take the damage are the GPU and the CPU.

You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gaming again.

Solution:

You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it for you, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about $150 for the repair!

Quicker Solution:

For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide that will show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

I have put together a list of the best PS3 Repair guides and a complete review below:

My PS3 says it wont read my hard disc


Go to that cover which holds the hard disk (on the left side) and detach it. Remove the blue screw, slide out the hard disk by pulling that metal prong sideways and put it back in. If that does not work, then you need to replace it. The PS3 uses 2.5 inch SATA hard drives.

Good luck.

My ps3 wont read the disc


First you should try getting a blu ray disc cleaner. This will clean the lens and let you know if it is dirt is on the lens causing the disc not to read. If this does not work they you will need the blu ray lens replaced.

Ive been told the motherboard has gone on the ps3. The only problem with the machine is that it wont accept discs anymore. It shows the loading up sign then nothing more happens.


Hi there, this is not a motherboard issue, this is a blu ray lens issue. When they become faulty they refuse to read discs hence the loading sign and nothing happening. It is attempting to read the disc but cannot. You can purchase blu ray drives for around £60 off of ebay or you could buy a faulty PS3 that the blu ray drive is good on and use that, usually they sell for around £50.

On my ps3 80gb system, the disc never spins up. I don't have a problem replacing the part myself, but I don't know what part to order. can you help. Thanks! Mike


Hi there, the PS3 blu ray is a bit of a complex device. Basically the way it work is before the disc is even spun the laser reads and detects what kind of media is inserted into the PS3. As you are saying the disc is not spinning there are 2 possible causes for this.
1. The blu ray lens has gone and is unable to read blu ray discs, hence the disc does not spin as none is detected.
2. The actual motor that spins the disc has gone. This is a much more unlikely reason, the blu ray lens is a common problem on the PS3.

As a shot in the dark you could try a laser lens cleaner but make sure it is suitable for blu ray. If this does not work you are going to have to purchase a new blu ray drive. You can get them for around £70 on ebay but you need to make sure you get the right one. Check your PS3 model number and google it to find which drive you have.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

PS3 - Unable to read disc


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem


Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.


Thank you !!

My ps3 will not read my disc sometimes and other times it will read it but it will not work


The disc may be quote, "Corrugated", hence the laser is having a hard time following mis ~ aligned structural pattern. Try to use a CD ~ Lens Cleaner. :)
