Disc in machine but says no disc loaded


Often times you will find that the firmware, or driving software of your disc player is not up to date. Contact your manufacturer to get a firmware update.

If this still doesn't work, then your disc is not the correct format for reading on that particular player.

Hope this helped!

Thanks!

I put a disc in my ps3 slimline. It makes a sound (like when a cassette player used to flip the tape over) then nothing. it doesnt recognise a disc has been inserted??? im happy to repair it i just need to...


The problem is probably with the laser that reads the disc. If you feel comfortable doing it, open up the PS3 and look at the laser. Try to readjust it and clean it, and if that doesn't work, I would not recommend trying to repair it yourself.

You can send the PS3 back to Sony, and they can fix it for you, either for free if you have a warranty, or relatively cheap if your warranty ran out (compared to buying a new one).

Ps3 not loading disk


Here is how you can fix the not loading/reading disk on PS3.The problem is with the sensors under the Blu-ray drive that are not making contact with the base of the system. So, the first thing to do is open the PS3. Then, you slightly put pressure over the area where the disc loads and after this your disc should begin recognizing all discs inserted and will load a disc without any problems. This should fix your problem. If this does not fix your problem, you will need to send your PS3 to Sony to have it repaired by specialists.

It wont read any discs?


If your PS3 won't read your disc, then try the tips below. They may help you fix your PS3.

Firstly check the actual disc that you are trying to play for scratches, smudges and dirt. If it is smudged or dirty clean it (instructions are in the PS3 user manual). In any case, try another disc in the PS3 and see if that works. If it does then most likely the cause of your problem is the disc. It may be too scratched up, from the wrong region - [many discs are locked to a certain region and will not play on a system in another region], etc.

If your PS3 will not read any disc, try turning it off and on again - Place it in standby mode (when it shows the red light) and flip the switch on the back, or if it is a slim place it in standby mode and unplug it. Wait a couple minutes and turn it back on again.

Unfortunately if that doesn't work try resetting it may fix the PS3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds until you hear 2 beeps. This will reset the PS3's settings.

If your PS3 will not read disc still then the lens may be dirty. You can fix this by getting a lens cleaner. Most electronic stores sell them. Follow the instructions on the lens cleaner.

However if your PS3 will not read disc, then you have a more major problem. In order to fix your PS3 you will either have to send your PS3 to Sony for repairs, or get a good PS3 repair guide and fix it yourself.

If your PS3 is still under warranty, then I would recommend that you send it to Sony for repairs since you will void your warranty if you open your PS3.

However if your warranty has expired, the fastest and cheapest option to get your PS3 working again is to get a good, step-by-step PS3 repair guide and repair it yourself. You see, if you were to send it to Sony, they will charge you around $150 and there will be a 4-6 week wait to get your PS3 back, or you will get a refurbished unit. Good repair guides costs downwards of $75 and offer 1 hour fixes so that you can get back to using your PS3 as quickly as possible.

The Playstation 3 will not read any discs. It barely moves the disc inside. All software and internet are working perfectly. Even when I formatted the PS3, it still wouldn't read anything. I have a 40GB...


Your blue ray lens needs either cleaning or replacing, maxwell as brought out a blueray lens cleaner disc recommended for even ps3 consoles. If that doesn't work though you have to send it to sony or approved sony repairs centres. Search on google for ps3 repair centres near your area.
