Just return your system or exchange it. I have same problem 2 times. First with 40G system only 2 weeks old. Exchanged that one with 80g system. This time it last 3 weeks. Now returned and got my refund back. Will not buy PS3 again until they solve this disc drive issue.

Hi,

This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is a strong sign that your Bluray drive is malfunctioning.

Sometimes you can resolve it by gently cleaning the lens with a Q-Tip and isopropyl alcohol but most often the lens itself will need replacing.

I have included this excellent walk-through on how you can do this yourself.

Please be sure the console is disconnected from the mains supply before carrying out any of this type of work.

Otherwise the unit will have to be returned to Sony who generally replace the whole drive unit including the lens. The cost from Sony is $150 to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa.

If the PS3 can't read the disks, the laser is the only thing that could cause the trouble. You could've scratched the laser when you cleaned it, or it could have been broken from the start. I recommend calling Sony and calling for a repair. Just hope that they will repair it for free even though you voided the warranty by opening it up.

It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

Wont play ps3 games


try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.
