If all other games are fine you may have a bad disk...go exchange it for a new one...if this is happening on all games you have a problem with the laser eye

Ps3 loads most games first time however after about 20 mins of playing battlefield BC 2 the sound stops working i can hear people talk through headset but no game sounds when i reset and insert the game...


Hi Danny41,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.

Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

My 360 is about 2 months old and it has always worked perfect. But all of a sudden one day it just stopped reading the disks I put in. It says its reading then 2 seconds later says "open tray". All games...


Sounds like you may have to send it to microsoft to fix it. Go online to xbox.com and start a repair. If its only be 2 months you should still have a warrenty

Please help im in need and board


Hi, the discs will spin ??? The bubble in top right corner don't stop spinning ???
If you answered NOT the first and YES the second question ...... Then you probably have a defective laser lens like my 40 GB purchased in 2008-Nov.
You have 2 choices: 1- Send it for repair (With warranty) 2- Fix it your self.
It's no complicated, I did it. Just buy a laser replacement and do it. Look for videos in Youtube.com and will see that it's so easy.

Ps3 Problem after problem after problem.


Yes, the disk read problem is VERY common. These lasers are failing at an epic rate. Unfortunatly nothing is perfect. The Xbox is plagued by Disk Errors and system failures as well. Thats good that you got Sony to send you a box. Thats exactly what you should have done, and what I advise people to do if their system is under 12 months old. I hope you get a good one back. Good luck and happy gaming.

I put a rental game in my ps3 an it updated the ps3 with the software on the game. The game played in the ps3 for about half an hour and then it froze and stopped working what can i do to fix it?


Sounds to me like you have 1 of 2 problems. 1) The disk has gotten corrupted. 2) The disk has gotten scratched. If you Check the disk literally, and it has scratches that is why. If it just keeps freezing or won't startup, then it has gotten corrupted. Try to Return/Delete the Rental game for another copy and you will be all set.

Please give me a FixYa if this helped. - Evolution

My ps3 not working


Sony used a bad batch of lasers on earlier models of ps3. Mostly 40 and 60 gig but like any other electrical component it has the chance of taking a s**t. Sony will replace or repair your system if the warranty sticker is still on the console, if now open the BD and replace the laser with a new laser (not refurbished). I have taken hundreds of these apart and its always the same. The laser burns out mostly due to **** on the disk itself so be sure to have nothing on the disk.
