    I was playing Madden 09, got tired of playing it so i decided to quit and play my Grand Turismo. I put the G T in the system and it didnt read, i tried it over and over again and it wouldnt read. I then put the Madden back in and it would read, neither would any blue ray or dvd's.

    I had a similar problem with the PS3 not reading any disc, BlueRay, DVD or CD so I called the help line mentioned below and they have been very helpful and will take the Box away and replace the Laser with an upgraded one. I have had the PS3 over a year and it is still being fixed under warranty. Well worth giving them a go if you have a problem,

    All of the sudden (after 2 months) the PS3 won't read any disks. I'll try the lens clening kit as a solution before returning it for service under the warranty.

Any regular CD or DVD lens cleaning disc will work on the PS3. Try that solution. They're only $5 at an electronics store.

Hi, My ps3 will read every single game except Fifa 11. when i load the game it stays on a black screen between 10-15 secs and then a message pops up saying, " an error occured during the start...

It's most likely the disc. I would say it's time to replace with disc with another one.
If you'd like to attempt to clean the disc before replacing it, clean it with an anti-static cloth and see if that helps.

Vice City plays fine, but when i take that out and put in fifa '08, it goes to that configuration screen, with a picture of each memory card, and the disc. If I click the disc, nothing happens

That means the cd is not reading. Carefully clean the disc and put it back in. Start the game and if it comes on again, press the reset button and see if it will plat this time. Might have to do it 2 or 3 times, but if it is going to play, it will come on.

My ps3 console not reading disc

Hello. When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
