Is this the problem of the PS3 not being able to read disks? The best thing is to tr with normal audio cd's or picture cd's see if they work. if it is able to read them, your disk drive is ok[and the problem may be the game blu-ray disk] if not then the problem may be with the disk drive. you may have to contact sony.

Hope it helps

Won't accept the disk and grinds


The first is that "Disc Read Errors Diagnosis mode could be the solution.

Load your PS2 without a disc inside and wait until you get to the main menu.

Press Triangle and highlight "Console", then press Triangle again and set "Diagnosis" to ON. What does this setting do? Basically, it focuses the laser on the disc so that it has an easier time reading discs.
In addition, you must turn this setting on EVERY time you load your PS2, as the PS2's system settings are never saved when you turn off your console

Do not read the disc


Hello,

The problem is that the lens of your ps3 is either dirty or weak that it can no longer read any disc, i advice that you get a lens cleaner to clean the lens of your game, if after cleaning, problem persist, replace the lens on your ps3 so that your ps3 can continue to function as it use to function before.

Replace the lens on your ps3 and you will see that it will start reading discs.
You can also try the below procedure,

1. Turn off Playstation®3.
2. Hold the power button down; the system will turn on and turn off once again.
3. Once the System has been shutdown, re-press you finger until you hear 2 consecutive beeps
4. When you hear the 2 beeps take finger off power button.
5. You will be prompted to plug in your controller via USB and then hit the PS button
6. The Recovery menu will pop up.

The current Recovery Menu supports:
• Restart System: Restarts the PLAYSTATION®3 System.
• Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings back to default.
• Restore File System: Checks for corrupt/missing system files.
• Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS for the PLAYSTATION®3.
• Restore PS3 System: Fresh restore; Deletes everything and starts from Scratch.
• System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION®3 System.

Take care.

Denon 2106 Protect Mode (Update)


Yes, I am in Texas, just moved there from Michigan. Got away from the cold just in time. It's beautiful in Colorado, but just too cold for me.

I had no idea you had paid for a premium service. You contacted me thru the free forum. If you would like for me to get the payment for the premium service, you could contact fixya thru this email ( lauren@fixya.com ) and tell her (Lauren) how you did not get the information you needed from the premium question you asked and would like that credit to go to me. She will know what to do about it. I really don't know how you would go about it. As it stands right now, you will end up paying whoever answered you first unless you gave somebody a FixYa! rating and accepted the solution. Unless you request a refund. Which is what you may need to do. I hate to see some other person get paid for my knowledge. This has happened to me on many occasions. I get contacted thru the free forum to solve a problem they have paid somebody else for. I don't spend a whole lot of time on the site, since almost everything I do on this site is free help.

In the premium questions you should not give anyone anything but a "Thanks for Trying" unless you are satisfied you have received the help you have paid for. I never seen a link to the premium question you paid for, so I never got a chance to answer you there. I am sure that some of the answers you were getting there were very amusing, to say the least. As I told you in my last post, I really am an expert in these receivers and I don't believe there is another expert here with the experience actually repairing them as I have. There is a decent bunch of folks working here, but many are not really the experts they claim to be. It can be a pretty frustrating activity using the premium service because there are so many so called "Experts" that are only in this for the money and try to answer questions they know nothing about. I hope it was not as bad for you as I have seen in many other cases.

Thanks,

Dave (tech48)
