Disc Read Error

My console keeps coming with a disc read error. The problem is not a dirty lens or a damaged disc, it is obviously that the laser either needs realignment or the voltage is low(although I think they only had that problem on the larger models). However, I can't find any information anywhere about how to fix this. What do I need to do? my PS2 will only play audio cds... it will not play a DVD or PS1/PS2 games... what can i do to fix the problem myself?

Ps3 slim error code 8001002b what could this code be.


The code means "dirty or damaged disc". The PS3 has encountered some kind of problem reading the disc.

Possibly the laser could be having problems, possibly the disc.

Try another game disc. If it works, the game disc you are trying to start is somehow damaged.

If it doesn't, the laser most likely has a problem.

If the laser is the problem you can try and clean it with a DVD laser lens cleaner like this one :

Cannot Read Disc?


I would say get a cleaning CD with the bristles on the Cd to clean the lens of the Wii. When you get it all it does is spin in the CD tray and clean the lens inside the CD tray. That should fix your problem the lens is probably dirty. If it doesn't leave a comment and ill try to help again.

Xbox 360 open tray error apears to be a dirty laser. how do you clean it ?


Go to the electronics section of Wal-Mart, Target, etc. and buy a laser lens cleaner. They typically cost 15-20 dollars.

They will come with specific instructions, but typically you:

1) Insert the disc into the disc drive
2) Have the disc drive read a particular track on the disc, so that the soft brushes attached to the underside of the disc can clean the laser lens.

Some people attempt to clean a laser lens by lightly wiping it with a Q-tip soaked in rubbing alcohol. This is NOT a good method because of the high probability that you will either scratch the lens or leave some cotton on the lens making your problem worse.

Disc not reading


If you're getting a Disc Read Error (DRE), it could be one or both of these things.

Your laser lens is dirty or broken and needs to be cleaned or replaced, or your disc tray is faulty and needs to be serviced.

Try cleaning the lens and see if it will read. If you can hear the disc spin in the PS3, then your disc tray is fine.

Help meee!


A few possibilities.

The discs are scratched, the laser lens is dirty/damaged, the laser output is low, electronic fault.

Often the problem is dust/fingerprints on the laser lens.

Try cleaning the laser lens with a very soft brush eg: camera lens blower brush, or very gently with a tissue (if it's a fingerprint)

If the laser output level is low, it may require replacement. They deteriorate with use.
