Question about Sony PS3 40GB Best Sellers Bundle Console
I have hardly used my ps3 in an year, and today i tried using it. But it wont read any discs.
the disc wud enter and the blue light will be on, nuthin wud show up.
the console is working otherwise, but i can play any games.
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.

Tips for a great answer:
If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.
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.
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!
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!
