    ps3 dosent read any disc

  • Anonymous Jan 25, 2009

    Obviously there is a firmware issue. Everyone I know with this problem had it start with the last 2 updates. Unfortunately, the updates are automatic and cannot be avoided when you go online. This problem is not limited to the 60 gb unit. They are all having problems. I decided NOT to buy any more PS3s. Everyone I know with the issue has a unit that is out of warranty. Sony is no help

I suggest no one buys a PS3 60gb at least, what an absolute rip off. I bought my son a unit for his birthday in Sept 2007, it has now given up the ghost again and this is the third time. I feel like sending it back to Sony in pieces. Their service has been fantastic as far as turn around and composure on the phone, but the product itself is nothing but rubbish.

Posted on May 23, 2008

I got my ps3 in dec and now its doing the whole disc thing the guy on the phone said it might be the lense is dirty or something like that but this is total bs

Posted on May 23, 2008

I put my brand new GTA 4 and had about 3 hours of play but whne i went bk and switched my system bk on nothing happened. my main screen came bk on as normal but when i put disks in Blue-Ray or not nothing happened exept that loading spiral thing in the top right corner. and it stays like that well untill i give up basicly.. everything has to happen when its new.. and the system itself is only 4 months old

well pissed me off

any suggestions??
could rele use some help here

Ps3 would not read blu-ray or games two weeks ago, called sony and had to send unit in for repair. look up status on repair and they send me this:
Monday, March 10, 2008 Status: Due to high demand, your unit is currently on backorder. The quoted turn-around-time for product exchange through our PlayStation(R) Exchange Center (PEC) is approximately 7-15 business days from the time we receive your unit, not including shipping and handling time. Due to the current backlog the turn-around-time may exceed the quoted 7-15 business days. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience.hope i don't get another *** console that does the same thing after 3 months!!!

    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.

Xbox 360 won't read some brand new disc and frezzes during game

Hello my name is Tim Ehrhart, I repair 360's for a living and it sounds like yours is going to red ring on you. If it is only 6 months old then it is under warantee and you should either take it back to the store or call 1-800-469-9269 and they will ship you a box to ship it back to them. If your warantee is void then you can repair it using the guide found here I hope this helps you. Please take a little time to leave me feedback as I am new and am trying to gain a good rep.

Disc error

This is a common problem so it should be a quick fix. But, depending on how many repairs the shop you are sending it to has will ultimately decide how long it will be there. Sorry to say but you may be looking at 4-6 weeks.
