PS3 not reading discs.

Hey man, you can try this....

1. download and install a psn game or game demo
2. put in the disc of the game or video you want to play or watch
3. load the psn game or demo as if you were going to play it
4. quit the demo as soon as you get to the start menu of it
5. go and play or watch the game or video you wanted to, sucka, cause it works now!!!

I hope this works for you, and if it does, spread the word!

Will not play any discs or recognise any of them. it starts showing the blue light, then its showing the disc loading on the top right hand corner but nothing happens.


go to the system settings on the XMB menu, and check if the disc auto start is on.

if that does not work, go to restore PS3 system.

or you update the firmware, then go to playstation store from your menu, download a demo and see if it works.

My ps3 doesnt read games

your laser had stopped reading games and most likely bluray movies also sometimes they still read regular dvd's and music cd's sometimes non of then but I can guaranty is your laser you need to know what model you have because there is 2 different types of lasers for ps3 and you can install the laser your self or have someone do it for you we are a ps3 specialist we carry all major ps3 parts and accessories but if you can find somebody locally is better for you

unfortunately your bluray laser has probably failed. the diode burns out quickly on these older units. call sony they charge 150 or send it to me for 100..24hr turnaround
