Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

This probably isn't the appropriate place but, If I send my PS3 in over the bluray driver. Will Sony send me MY PS3, or a different refurbished one? If they do send me a different one would it be a 60gb? I bought the 60GB since half my games are PS2. And I'll be on the warpath if Sony screws me over and sends me a ps3 that is not backwards compatible

My ps3 do not want to read any disc


The problem which you are having is a faulty lens, unless you want to get down and dirty, and try the repair's yourself I would recommend option 2 send it to Sony for repairs. If you choose to open the PS3 take all precautions, and be aware you are responsible for any problems which you may cause to the machine. The Lens can be found on eBay, be sure you get the right model for there are (3) three different type of lens. As always unplug your PS3 before any repair's take place, I hope this helps, best of luck

Here is an example of what your need ( http://cgi.ebay.com/Blu-Ray-Drive-w-KES-410A-KEM-410ACA-Laser-Lens-ps3-/170515914011?pt=Video_Games_Accessories&hash=item27b38a5d1b ) please be aware that this is only one of three different type of lens which it may or may not be compatible with your PS3.

Here is the driver download page from Acer: http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/drivers
just select your model, once you find your PC/Laptop model select the appropriate Operating system and download the drivers, Viola there you have it, best of luck, hope this helped

My playstation 3 just dont read the disc at all


happened to me too. the bluray reader died. Your going to need to send it in for repair. Here's the link https://service1.us.playstation.com/

Im going to guess you have an original model. If you do choose to repair it I'd suggest going for the Slim upgrade. It says they're refurbished but i got a brand new one!

Ps3 will not read disc/dvd after i did an update


bad bluray drive you can fix this your self pretty easily but you will need to purchase new laser from ebay( around $50). there are lots of videos on how to do this (you tube) but its probably better to send to sony or a professional.

How do i clean my laser in my ps3 drive?


You can try using a disc cleaning kit, but that rarely makes a difference for the PS3.

It probably needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's areally common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the lasers areabout $75 each and Bluray drives are about $100. (thos are Canadianprices, ships to the US though)

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

My PS3 wont read any discs at all - blu-ray or games


Depending on usage, the ps3's Blu-Ray player is known to burn out after sometime. My solution, sadly, is to send it in for a new drive. Don't forget to deactivate your system before sending it in. There are cases where you do not receive your own ps3 back and they send you a different refurbished system.
