Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

Disc read error

I was playing Army of Two last week when my screen froze. I waited for about a half hour and had to turn it off on the back of the counsel. Now whenever I put in a disc I go to the main menu of my PS3 and it acts as if I did not even put in a disc. My friend had a simular problem about a month ago.

    Have you tried other games,dvd,music cd ? And is the unit reading and playing them? If so, it could be your game disc is scratched or damaged. If not the try a firmware updatehttp://www.us.playstation.com/Support/Sy... Otherwise your lens may be damaged; you might have to send the unit in for repair.https://service1.us.playstation.com/rma....

Hi, it sounds like your laser just burned out. This is a very common problem with the PS3 game systems. If it is still under warranty then you can call Sony and they will repair it for free. If not, then I would suggest you take it to a repair shop and have your laser replaced. It is a fairly simple repair to do if you want to do it yourself and save some money. But be advised, the lasers for these are very expensive( because of the Blu-ray) and if you take it to a shop you will have some kind of warranty in the event it should happen again. If you do it yourself, then you don't have a warranty and might have to replace it again, costing you even more money.

1. Try other games in the system
2. Try dvd's in the system

If neither are working the dvd drive will need to be replaced. It's rarely a cable issue in the new game systems.

Wii Disk Read Error


Call nintendo, if there is something in the USB port in the back of the system then take it out, it could cause freezing with out disc. If all of your disc are not playing ( Unable to read disc please refer to the wii operation manual ) its a problem with the disc drive in the system, set up a repair.

My PS3 does not read any disc since last week


My PS3 did the same thing this past Monday. I called PS3 toll free number and they took my information and is sending me a prepaid box to ship my console back to SONY Corp. so they can fix it. No cost if it's under warranty(there are exceptions to this though). It will take up to 10 business days to get back once they receive the console.

In the meantime, I went and bought a refurbished PS3 40GB to hold me over. Still waiting for the prepaid box to arrive. I must be crazy to buy another PS3 to hold me over until mine is fixed but I'm going to return the other one once i get my other one back. I have 30 days.

Won't read the disc.


A possible over heating issue that damaged the lense or the lense itself needs readjusting (rather than replacing)

Screen froze,now wont read any discs


if your system is only 5 weeks old PS3 factory warranty covers all defects in materials and workmanship for 1 year from purchase date. there are some inclusions and exclusions which can be accessed at http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/PS3/Warranties
but if you have any implied warranties from the store you purchased it at you should hit them up first to see what they'll do for you
