My PS3 wont redcognize discs i put in a disc and it will not do anything it used to read ps2 ps3 and bluray discs but it wont read anything and ive never used it online


The laser in the drive is probably going bad. Use a can of air and blow some into the drive so that way your making sure no specs of dust or dirt are on the laser. If after you do that it still won't play any discs, then you know the laser is bad so you can either replace the laser or replace the whole drive which is easier to do.

Tip

TO FIX PS3'S THAT AREN'T READING DISC'S


Hi FixYa community,

I thought I should pass thing tip along, seeing as how so many people are having trouble.

It is a solution for PS3 fat models (the old ones). If your PS3 has suddenly stopped reading disc's it might not be the laser, it could just be a type of data corruption, but there is a way around it.

Go onto the PlayStation Network and download any game demo. Install the demo. Insert the game you want to play. Now go into the demo game that you downloaded and installed as if you were going to play it. As soon as it loads, quit out of the demo and go back to the main menu of your PS3; the game you wanted to play should now be available. ENJOY!

If this tip doesn't work then sorry, it is your blu-ray laser, however, it has worked for myself and one other that I know of. Hope it works for you too!

Ps3 wont read games or dvds what should i do?


I HOPE EVERYONE READS THIS AS IT'S LIKELY A (FREE) SOLUTION TO YOUR WOES.

My ps3 recently conked out on me and the local game store (and the internet) told me it was a broken laser.

I told them that I couldn't play video games, not even ps2 games. They still said it was a broken laser.

When I found out it would be 140 bucks to have it replaced and installed I decided to just download some demos.

HERE'S WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING.

I went on the playstation network (psn) and downloaded a game demo, installed it, and played it. When I quit out of the demo, the laser was reading and I could play games!

When I turned off the system and tried again the next day, again it didn't work.

I followed the same process. Went into a downloaded game, this time quit right after the demo loaded, and sure enough, the laser was working again!

Every time I quit a game I have to follow this process, but every time it works, too.

So again:

1. download and install a psn game or game demo
2. put the disc of the game you want to play
3. load the psn game or demo as if you were going to play it
4. quit the demo as soon as you get to the start menu of it
5. go and play the game you wanted to, sucka, cause it works now!!!

I hope this works for you, and if it does, spread the word!

your cs drive is probably dead(the laser module anyways) you will probably need to return the ps3 to sony and get a new one.

Ps3 disk reading error


Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.
