Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I was creating a player in NBA LIVE 08 and The screen showed DISC ERROR... so i took the disc out and tried another one and it did not read any more of my games.. i restored my ps3 sytem and fomat my hardrive... and still nothing.... what do i do?? =( HELP!?
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.
