Hi,

This is a common problem on the PS3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.

You can also open the case and clean the laser lense with a Q Tip and an alcohol cleaning solution.

If you plan on opening the case at any stage please ensure the unit is disconnected from its power supply.

If this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

See an example below.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

Console won't read disk. when disk in console, message comes up unable to read disk


If you are getting that message then there is likely 2 reasons.
1: is because your disk is scratched up or something.
2: your disk reader that is inside of your Wii Console is out of place.

Disk stuck


Slam one time on it. Does the Wii read the disk? If, give Nintendo a repair call. If not, do the same, but say your Wii doesn't read the disk too.

Xbox console reads disks then says unplayable disk


this is the laser unit that is faulty, it either needs replacing or you could try cleaning it with a cotton earbud to see if that helps. if its still doing the same after cleaning you could also try adjusting the laser power, sometimes after its been played for years the laser loses power and you will have faults such as this. adjusting the 'pots' on the laser itself to around 282 will help greatly.
if you need a guide just email me or let me know via my website at www.fixmyconsole.co.uk and i will be more than glad to help you.
