    My PS3 can not read any disc but PES 2008.

    Discs are clean and the other PS3 reads all of them normally.

    Is there any solution except returning it to shop where purchased, since I bought it in USA and I am in Bosnia and Herzegovina?

    Add me to this list. I was watching a blu-ray movie (I am Legend), suddenly it froze and since then it won't read any disc. I updated my firmware to 2.30 but it didn't help.

    My PS3 popped up that same message, then all of a sudden wouldn't read anything. I called Sony, and got my replaced through their warranty program.

    disc reading problem,how to solve it any body know???

  • Anonymous Jan 14, 2009

    When I attempt to load any disc (BR, DVD, CD) the circle in the top right corner of the screen displays but nothing happens. The disc will not appear in the XMB, and it will not load. I have auto disc load set to on in the settings. I have also tried with this turned off. Still nothing. Sometimes the audio cuts out also, and no sound comes through. 

  • Phantasio Feb 09, 2009

    The only thing my console will not read is "The Office: Season 3" on DVD. It is NTSC Region 1 and should be working just fine. Any reason as to why this is?

Ts 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.

Unable to read the disc


Hi,

The most common reason for the PS3 not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your PS3 including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your PS3 going again!
Hope this will help...

Take care.

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


there is nothing you can do yourself. the ps3 BD drive is bad and needs to be replaced. your only choice is to replace the drive yourself or call sony.

also are you able to play games from the hard drive? if so your BD drive is defective.

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.

My ps3 won't load any games


You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

My ps3 doesnt read games


your laser had stopped reading games and most likely bluray movies also sometimes they still read regular dvd's and music cd's sometimes non of then but I can guaranty is your laser you need to know what model you have because there is 2 different types of lasers for ps3 and you can install the laser your self or have someone do it for you we are a ps3 specialist we carry all major ps3 parts and accessories but if you can find somebody locally is better for you

Won't read any disc


You need a new laser. I have repaired several of these (about 20) with the same problem, wont read discs. The laser can be purchased for $50 online, try ebay.
