Hi,

This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is the first sign that your Bluray drive is malfunctioning.

Sometimes you can resolve it by gently cleaning the lens with a Q-Tip and isopropyl alcohol but most often the lens itself will need replacing.

I have included this excellent walk-through on how you can do this yourself.

Please be sure the console is disconnected from the mains supply before carrying out any of this type of work.

Otherwise the unit will have to be returned to Sony who generally replace the whole drive unit including the lens. Cost from Sony is $150 to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa

Ps2 repairs


is it all game disks or just one ? It may be something as simple as a greasey finger print on the disk or a scratch that stops your console from reading a disk

Hi,

This is a very 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 disk.

Playstation 3 will not read any type of disk. It detects the disk but never stops loading. What is the problem? Is the blue ray diode fried?


Hi there,
This problem is caused by the PS3's motor, or the brain as we say it. There's a high possibility that it is damaged. Self-repair won't take you anywhere if you are not a professional playstation repairman. You should call Sony's customer service or have the PS3 sent for repair.

Has a disk cracked inside your console?


This is a very common problem that unfortunately is mainly happening when the games are left in the system, before restarting.

The best advice I can give you from personal experience is make sure you remove your game after use. Do not start the system while the game is in the PS3.

Playstation 2 problem


I would try cleaning your Playstation games, Check and make sure that the games your trying to play are not cracked in anyway. Also, if you have your system standing vertically lay it down horizontally. Many times after you've closed the disk in it lens to far away from the lens.
