    was watching blu ray last night and the game froze. restarted unit and wouldn't load movie. put game in, and it read the disc, then froze while loading. wouldn't load the game or tell me invalid disc. then it won't load anything or it will go to the default screen of the p3 (when no game is inserted) and won't recognize the disk. everything works other than that.

    I've got the same problem. I've even done a 'full' reformat of the hard drive.

    It stopped working before the 2.10 update, and it's still not working.

    the nice people at SCEA won't answer the phone, due to 'overwhelming demand for playstation products'.

    ps3 works fine until i start the game. it freezes on the loading screen, or it will freeze in the middle of playing.

You can fix this yourself if you are not under warranty any more. There are plenty of PS 3 Blue Ray Lasers available on Ebay for about $60.00. Search You tube for videos on taking apart a PS 3.
Very easy to do.

Its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

Call playstation customer service and they will swap it out with a new one. i did one troubleshooting step (restoring default settings). then that didn't work so they set up the exchange. kind of a pain to be without it for a couple of weeks, but better than nothing.

SOURCE: disk read error

I had that problem 2 for a while, all you have to do usually is clean the reader with a good lens cleaner, you can get them for like $10 at a glasses store, i would recommend buying one if you have allot of disk readers that you have problems with. The other thing to do is to check to see if the reader is jammed, that can be a real problem, just wiggle it and it will come lose. Before playing move the reader to the outside of the disk slot, close the case, turn on the GC and then once the menu comes up go to the play game selection at the top of the cube like menu and select it, then insert the game and close the lid, tell it to play and its almost garenteed to work, if not you need to get it or the game you are trying to play fixed.

SOURCE: ps3 disk read error

It is quite easy.  Go to www.llamma.com to see the video on disassembling a PS3.  If you want I can do it. I run the Playstation Clinic and repair PS3 systems.  You probably do not even need to replace the laser. Check out www.playstationclinic.com

SOURCE: my ps3 wont play a disk

make sure the disk is clean - clean it with a clean cloth or tissue in a circle around the middle of the disk. otherwise, try returning the disk to the shop which you bought it from

SOURCE: The game disk could not be read.

It sounds like the disc reader is dirty, it's the little clear circle right under where a disc would go, closest to the back of the unit.
To clean, open disc cover, locate the disc reader, use a dry soft towel or some toilet paper and gently wipe it off, sometimes even a little dust can cause a problem. This should do the trick. If it doesn't, then either the disc is scratched or the Game Cube has something wrong with it.
hope this helps!

My ps3 slim won't play games and blue ray disk but I can still play eve movies on it, please help want to try an fix if before nhl 12 hits the stores.


Hi, It sounds like there's an error with the laser that reads blu ray media as PS3 games and blu ray movies are both stored on blu ray disks which is read by a different type of laser then a dvd is read by. There's nothing you could do to fix that on your own, the only fix I've heard of is sending it in to Sony.

Constant disk read issues


It sounds like your laser is going bad. This is a common issue for the PS3. The tell-tale sign is it starts reading less and less and having more errors.

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.
