Looks like your lens has taken a beating.
call up sony center and explain them the problem. You would have to ship the ps3 to them.
Remember to make a back up of all your game saves and downloaded content if possible.

If you are still under warranty, Sony should replace the lens for you for free.
I would suggest replacing it with Sony, even if you have to pay for it, rather than doing it yourself or by an unauthorized person.
Ask for a warranty on the lens if you get it fixed via Sony.

Changing Lens needs a lot of precision work.

Unfortunately, this is not a basic manufacturing fault. the actual issue concerns the optics assembly. You can try to wake the lens by using a cleaning disc. if the cleansing dose not produce positive results, this will confirm that there is significant damage in this area. The optical assembly should be replaced if so.

Contact Sony for this repair. Its shouldn't cost no more than 150 dollars tops.(Shipping and handling included)

Wheni put a disc in the ps3 it does not load up so i cant play on games my software version is 3.21


hi,

The most common reason for the PS3 not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your PS3 including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your PS3 going again!
Hope this will help...

Discs wont read on ps3.


Question: does it play blueray movies? Mine did this, but would still play movies. I found a "Corrupted Data" file in my Games/data folder, and ended up doing a quick restore, under ths System menu. I now have no problems in this area...games start properly every time. You will lose all your saves and any dowloaded content, so back up if you can.

Ps3 games wont work on my ps3.. but plays ps2 games and dvds play...


How much free memory does your Ps3 have? Are the games used or scratched?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You need a certain amount of memory to play ps3 games. Scratched up games can't be read.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Did you put the disc on the right side? Lay the ps3 down and the ps3 game disc picture should be facing up.

Disk reading error


your cs drive is probably dead(the laser module anyways) you will probably need to return the ps3 to sony and get a new one.
