Hi,

This is an extremely common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.

The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa.

My ps3 doesnt seem to register the game disc when i insert it also when iv been playing fifa online it cuts out sometimes or other times the commentator voice goes away as does the crowd noise but the game...


Sounds like an internal issue. I suggest reformatting the HDD by going to the settings menu. But before you reformat I strongly suggest you create a backup of your data because everything will be erased. You can create the backup through the settings menu as well.

Hey Ron,

What happens you put a ps3 disc in the drive? Does it not register at all? Does it read BLUERAY movies because if so it should read games as well.

Not playing any discs


Ok your not going to want to hear this but your laser is gone. The reason the blue light is coming on is the actual sensor for the disk is not on the laser it is a slide mechanism. It shouldnt be to expensive for you as i fix these for customers for around 80 dollars and thats including the laser

Games are not registering.


Sounds like your ps3 is having trouble reading blu-ray discs, do you have any movies on blu-ray you can test?
The only solution really is to send it in for repair, hopefully you're still under warranty?

Ps3 plays dvd but games don't load. Games do not even register as in the cd drive.


Please check if the games you want to play are on PLAYSTATION3 format. If not then they will not be played. Otherwise when you insert the disc the games start automatically

Disk reading error


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.
