What are you trying to check on the laser? Do you have a 'scope? There are also several types of infrared detectors out there that work well, but a 'scope is needed to ensure that the power level output is correct. Oh yeah, there is a detector that will plug into your DMM and read out the wattage...accordianman

Evey time i but in a umd it comes on and then says disk can not be read

It could be many things is the can be a bad lazer, disc rotating motor is stuck, or bad motherboard in a worst case scenario. You can check if your lazer and your disc rotating motor is working if you open your umd slot with the psp on and with a small toothpick there is a black tab that sticks up, this tells the PSP that there is a UMD in the drive If you press this down, you should see the disc motor spin and the laser light up red. If they are in working order then it could be something wrong with some of the other hardware in the psp itself. (Caution: Do not stare directly at lazer) If one of the motor (Lazer or Disk rotating motor) are twitching or trying to move there could be some dust in the gear preventing it from turning you can try getting a needle and try to move the gear manually. If this does not work your most likely going to need to send it in for repair. Hope this helps please rate thanks!

It wont play disk

as with all dvd type machines the lazer builds up dust and debree on the lazer lens this makes it harder for the lazer to read the incripted information on the disc. much like a torch bean being covered with a cloth the fix is simple you need to purchase a lazer disc cleaner it looks and works just like a normal dvd disc but it has brushes on it that when put through the player brushes the dust of the laser lens this needs to be done on a regular bases to keep your lazer working to its optimum level and hense fixing your problem.

best of luck

When you put a game or dvd in it says open tray. blew it out with a little air. cds and dvds are all clean so that should not be an issue

Did the Xbox fall over when a disk was spinning? This could be damage to the lazer reader of your discs? I would see if you can buy one of those lazer cleaners which is a disk you put in to clean the lazer if it is dirty. If the actual lazer reader is damaged you would need to call microsoft to see if you are under warranty.

I inserted a game disk it went into the menu I click on the game in the menu but the screen says it's unable to read the disk consult the manual, the disk doesn't appear to be spinning any help ??

Fixed one that had the same symptoms as yours today motor ceased in this one though but it also could be the lazer you can do exploratory surgery try to turn the motor by your finger and see if it is tight to turn if its not then probably the lazer dont forget to unsolder the ground blob of solder on the ribbon cable first (On the new one) weigh it up not much difference in price between the lazer and the whole rom assembly Good luck

My PS3 recognizes and plays music c.d.'s but will not recognize the games.

Simple, Lazer died buy a lazer from a reputable supplier, this one you shouldnt buy off of ebay (you dont know what you get or who has swapped there old one and sent back) not giving anyone a free plug but has been good to me. So which one do i get you ask I will tell you lay the console down and put a disk in and watch it go in If it goes in without turning its a single eye lazer if it turns as it goes in it is a duel eye lazer. Here is the part that hurts single eye lazer is very expensive duel eye is about $80-100 weigh up if its cheaper to get sony to fix it if you fix it make sure you have no disk in it when you take it apart !!!! Yes it is easy to do Good Luck

My ps3 will not load anything

I fix heaps of these if it doesnt play cd dvd or bl-ray then sure its the lazer but wait there could be more !!!
sometimes you need to replace the bd chip (only sometimes) depends on how fussy you are or determined depending where you are in the world sony in australia wants about $330 for exchange unit or you can see a local in the area your in for around $280-300
its reasonably easy to fix the lazer yourself just remember to take out the disk b4 u start to pull it apart do some reading can issue the parts hint look at the disk when you insert it if it pulls itself in strait its a single eye lazer if it spins (turns slightly) when it goes in its a duel eye lazer Mark, Brisbane AUS

Not recognising that there is a cd in there. keeps saying 'no disk'

Hi there , have you tryed cleaning the lazer lens very gentle with a cotton bud , the lazer could be quite costly to replace , there is a very small ajustment on the lazer inside the unit but would need someone with a bit no how to ajust the setting a very small amount to see if the lazer will work better .

Disc does not turn

Hi Brad1Christy,

The laser is either dirty or burned out. When the disc does not spin, it usually is because the controller does not see any initial data coming from the laser. Clean your laser and see if you get any response.
