The same thing happened to me with PS3 40GB. There are rumors floating in the Internet that firmware update 3.0.0 and 3.0.1 are bricking the Bluray drive. I don't know if that's true or just a coincidence. Either way I bought a replacement laser assembly in eBay and replaced it. It works like a charm now.

My ps3 has crashed also. will still read the game after a format and backing up the data. But it wont allow me to any further than the start of training before it crahses. i took the game back and got another game just for a troubleshooting experiment and it still happens.

It might just be coincidence that your blu-ray drive has packed up at the same time as the update. Ring up Sony and tell them this and you could get a new console for free if your in the warranty.

You either need to send it in for a new disk drive, or there may be a new update you have not gotten, keeping you from reading disks (unlikely) you should send it in.

Ps3 loads most games first time however after about 20 mins of playing battlefield BC 2 the sound stops working i can hear people talk through headset but no game sounds when i reset and insert the game...


Hi Danny41,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.

Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

Game not working on x box 360 did work once but now it cannot read the disc, other games work well.the game is "call of duty world at war"


call of duty has a history of being a console killer, if your xbox 360 version is older, your console engine might not be able to keep up with this kind of game, I had an xbox 360 b4 and same thing happened it plays on other games but wont play with call of duty. It also happened to my ps3, what I did was I updated my firmware version for both console. Now both consoles works with call of duty. Give it a try. Thanks
