Re: Playstation 3

Its a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. i'm getting my new one tomorrow. upset it broke but sony's replacement service is very good.

Playstation 3 stop reading the disk. the system wont **** in the disk it doesnt spin or anything i had to open the blue ray player to get the game out

Could try cleaning the laser in the drive with a drive cleaning kit you can buy from most electronic stores. Have you checked the game disk to see if it has scratches or fingerprints on it. Try to clean the disk as well. If still have problem try playing another disk to see if that one works

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.

Hello my sons ps3 has stopped loading games,

I have seen lasers burn out shortly after 1 year. They are available online for purchase. It would be the laser for sure if the system starts up fine, disks go into and out of the console and if there is an icon in top right of screen like it is trying to read. I have fixed a few but laser replacement usually cost $150. Good Luck

Playstaion 3 games wont load how can it be fixed. the clock (loading icon) stops. no errors appear no disk shows up.

listen for the disc to start spinning

if the disc spinns then its prolly just a dirty laser lens and if it doesnt spin could be a bad laser i doubt its the blu ray logic boad cause the ones i have seen that were bad the disk reading icon never stops, this has also happened on broken lenses where it never stops. ussually if it stops its bad motor or dirty lense.
