My ps3 wont read any disk compatible with the ps3


My PS3 stopped reading my PS3 games last month, but it was still able to read DVDs. I looked it up online and learned that it usually happens when you smoke a lot around your PS3 while it is running and a film builds up on your blu-ray lens. I followed this YouTube video and had it playing my games again fine. Hope this helps.

PS3 stopped reading PS3 games


This is most likely do to a previous freeze up while on the PS3. All you have to do is to first disconnect all of the plugs and wires. Then you put them back in and turn on the PS3. It should read your PS3 game discs.

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

Ps3 dont read discs


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.

PS3 wont play disc's


If you have problem with loading your disk or some kind of media a most common error is Disk Read Error,or in a short way DRE.
Ps3 Laser is a very precise mechanism and optic and also a well none proble for the all machine right now on the Market.
Sony had the same problem before with PS2 and tried to fix the same issue all ready but without any luck at all.Actually i do believe is Part of the Market Strategy making the laser not to strong so people can buy new laser and keep the techical support alive.Most common error on Ps3 is DRE and some other like power supply Failure or Hd defective.
What is sad actually the fact the laser is Collapsing onthe spot.
On the ps2 you have some time to realize the laser is bad since the machine start not reading well or freezing during the game.On ps3 the laser stop working and that`s it.
I suggest to replace laser or try to clean first because sometimes if you are lucky the laser start working again

PS3 game wont work


playing a game lots for extented periods of time is knowen to damage te disk. this is not verry common but it can happen, especily if you have been leving the game on the lobby screen while u go out for dinner. leaving the disk somewhere warm can also do this. unfortunately the only way to solve this is to buy a new disk.
