Hi, the only thing you can really try yourself is to go out and buy a dvd lense cleaning disk and then put this into your ps3 then hopefully this will solve your problem, if not then the chances are that your lense unit needs replacing.
The main cause of this problem is over heating so just remember never use your ps3 on carpet or use it whilst it is on top of anything else that gives off heat such as dvd player, sky box, free view etc, they tend to over heat really quick when on carpet or on top of anything else electrical. make sure all the air vents are free from dust use soft brush such as paint brush and vac to remove any dust, the fans in these dont seem to be up to the job so any slight dust build up or heat source can cause them to over heat over time.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Many thanks for using fixya

My Playstation 3 wont load any games the menu shows up and i go to the GAME section and it wont show the disc. Please help. Thanks.


The most common reason for the Wii not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Wii including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Wii going again!

Unable to read any discs


Try keeping off your system for 10-15 minutes and try again. If problem exists go to the shop from where you bought your PS3 and ask them for replacement of your drive or your drive lens. I think drive sounds better.

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.

Playstation 3 wont load games or movies


i had same problem. ps3 was reading and then not reading discs off and on. finally it totally went out and would no longer read any type of disc. it would still play demos and get on web etc but wouldn't read any type of disc. u need to call sony's 1 800 # and they will repair it for free if u have a proof of purchase under a year if no i heard they charge around 150. if u purchased it from a gamestop and u don't have ur receipt u can call them and have them fax it to sony cause they take ur info when u buy one from there

Playstation problem


may be a dirty laser reader within the systems main disc drive. the laser read the data on the disc, so if it is dirty or blocked by an unkown material it wont read any discs or DVDs or Blu-Rays. i recommed calling sony about this issue as it is a main topic of disscussion right now. i too, have the same problem. dont worry though. its not your games.
