Firstly let me just say that all audio visual units such as this, should come with lens cleaning utilities, as more often then not the laser eye is simply dirty.

  • I presume this is the case with more then one game and if this is the case, please read on. ( not simply one damaged CD / DVD.
  • There is a product for cleaning the laser eye simply called a DVD or CD lens cleaner.
  • I should imagine you could simply run the lens cleaner and this would more then likely fix your problem.
  1. Go to a store that sells DVD's and CD's or games and ask them about a "lens cleaner" for your ps3.
  2. Read over the instructions - should give you step by step, and this is reasonably important to do it correctly, so is best you read the instructions.
  3. Allow suitable time to dry ( 5-10 minutes ) as directed by the manual ( some of these are on the CD and can be heard by simply playing the CD or DVD in another player.
  4. Your games should now work fine, and knowing that you only just got it for xmas, you should still be able to make a warranty claim if the problem persists.
  5. There isn't much else you can do to fix this yourself, but a lens cleaner is certainly worth a shot.
  6. Lens Cleaners usually retail for anywhere from $5 - $35 for a good quality one, the end result is usually the same, so don't spend all your pocket money on something you could have gotten less expensively.

Little big planet freezes my ps3


Sometimes certain games just will not work. I bought a copy of Heavy Rain that did the same thing. I took it back and traded in for a different copy of Heavy Rain and it worked perfectly. Don't know what causes it, but it happens.

Our playstation 3 won't read games but will play regular DVD's and CD's


I have the same problem. My games freeze after 5 minutes. Same with blue rays but dvds play fine. I have reformatted the hard drive and formatted the file system. Nothing has worked. Hearing through multiple sources the blue ray laser is going out or the latest firmware update could be causing this. Hard to know for sure ... major disappoint. I have the 80 gig. 2 years old just starting doing this three days ago. Any other suggestions?
