Disc cannot be read


When your console does not read any disk, that is usually because of a problem with theoptical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will startoperating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, butthe TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read,therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only few CD, DVD.After more prolonged usage , often the PS start losing the rest offunctions, and ends up not reading anything atall.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , thenthere is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. Thissituation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that doesnot work you will need to disassemble the PS, and clean lensdirectly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

before attempting repair , contact Sony to check if the unit can be replaced orrepaired by Sony, you find the number on the Console documentation.

Can play cd's but not dvd's, just a rythmic wirring sound and green activity light


Hey,

just looking at the specifications, it should work with All CD's and Read Normal DVD discs, the movies that you can rent and buy from any store but it appears its a combo drive (Cd burner, and a DvD reader) It will only read DVD-rom and maybe few other things but it wont play any r or rw dvd's. It might also read already burned dvd r and rw discs but it wont read a empty one.

if it won't read any dvd's it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

may want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

let me know how that goes.
Thanks,
Ekse

RCA DVD player model DRC105N that won't read discs anymore


If the DVD is not reading any CD, then it is often a lens problem.

If th lens cleaner does not work the unit must be taken apart, to clean the lens pickup with isopropyl alcohol and soft cotton tips.

In some case is necessary to replace the lens pickup, as this is defective.

Playstasion 3 doesn't want to play


Open up the PS3 and then open up the Blu-Ray Drive and clean the lens with rubbing alcohol or isopropyl alcohol on a q-tip. I heard that lighter fluid works way better than rubbing alcohol and isopropyl alcohol, so try it on a q-tip to clean the lens. I am not responsible for any damages to your console.

If that doesn't work then go here to get help from other people -

Dvd player not loading


I openned mine up and found that the lens carrige was not in the fully retracted position. I pushed it all the way back to the back of the slide. Then I removed the two screws on either side of the spindle support so I could get to the lens. I hit the lens with some compressed air, plugged it in and loaded a disk and it worked like a champ. Listening to some Stevie Ray Vaughn right now!!! And going to watch some movies later. ;)

Good luck, I hope this helps someone.
