Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
If the ps3 will not read discs then i highly recommend you to send it in for a repair if this is under warranty.Sony will repair it for free.
If your ps3 is not under warranty then:
Youcould try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction asfar as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the coveroff and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with avery gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swingsto the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dustaccumulating, but its still worth the try.
If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.
It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting thatguides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust andsolidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the lasereye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image i have attached.
Also Makesure your box is not blowing really hot air and nothing is right behindit blocking it.. Turn it off for afew minutes and let it cool down and then give it a try playing the discs..
