Re: Ps3 not reading any games

Sounds like either you have a dirty lens on the laser or you may have a worse problem. Apparently it's still recognizing your drive hence the error screen, but first try to clean the lens with a disc cleaner (any electronics store will have one) and if not, you'll have to split the case and check out the board on the drive to see if it's toast and if the motor still spins. If that's good, you can buy laser read assemblies on Ebay to replace it with. Check the traces (electrical paths), resistors (which will usually be black if toast) and capacitors (will usually be bulged, leaking, or blown out if bad). Good luck.

Games so stcrath up

Do you think there is a problem with the games or the ps2, if the ps2 is playing some of your games then the best bet is its the discs of those that won't work are the discs scrachted? this is the most common problem for games not working as the disc is so srachted that the ps2 can not read it, they could be smudged if so just get a soft cloth not a t-towle or kitched roll as these have very rough surfaces and may scracht the discs even more, another thing is that the laser that reads the disc has dust on it, if so you will need to buy a disc cleaner try to find one with a liquid solution that comes with it as these are the best i have one and i use it each month so that my ps2 never has dust and so far it has worked perfectly hope i could help.

PS3 wont read disks

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.
