    This a late gen model PS3 I just purchased new in December. It's already dead. Won't read ANY discs. Games/movies/ doesn't matter. Also makes a high-pitched whining sound. It's under warranty, but I can't get help from Sony to save my life. I've sent three emails asking where to send it for repair/replacement. Nothing...not one response. Anyone have info on what to do to fix this $200 piece of junk???

Ok my ps3 will read blu ray movies but will not read my games


Unfortunately a similar issue happened to me as well, and I had to send my PS3 in for repair (hardware issue; the disc drive broke). But maybe what I was told to do will work for you! Here's what I tried.

Easiest solution? Make sure your system is updated. Who knows, maybe it's a firmware thing. Go to XMB > Settings > System Update and run it.

For the next couple of things, you're going to want to backup everything on your PS3. The Backup Utility can be found in the System Settings Menu on the Settings Menu on the XMB menu (XMB > Settings > System Settings). More info on how to backup your information can be found on the Playstation website, found here.


With your data backed up, try the different options in Safe Mode. This link will show you how to access it. Try options 2, 3, 4 and 5, in that order, and see if it's reading discs in between each one. Anything after 2 will delete your data; thus the need to make a backup.


If that doesn't work, either try the online Knowledge Center (but it'll probably tell you do try things I've already outlined here) or send in your PS3 for repair (if it's under warranty, it's free!)

Hope you're able to fix it! Sending it in takes forever; you won't get your PS3 back for a month or two.

Will no read any game disc but will read dvds


Unfortunately this same issue happened to me as well, and I had to send my PS3 in for repair. But maybe what I was told to do will work for you! Here's what I was told.

You're going to want to backup everything on your PS3. The Backup Utility can be found in the System Settings Menu on the Settings Menu on the XMB menu (XMB > Settings > System Settings). More info on how to backup your information can be found on the Playstation website, found here.

Next you'll want to restore your PS3 to it's default/factory settings. It's also found in the Settings Menu on the XMB, labelled "Restore Default Settings." Just follow the on-screen instructions.

Once it's restored, see if the problem is fixed. If it is, congrats! Just use the Backup Utility to restore all of your backed up data.

If not, either try the online Knowledge Center or send in your PS3 for repair (if it's under warranty, it's free!)

Hope it all works out! If you send in your PS3 you won't get it back for almost a month...

My ps3 wont read any disks


I had a similar issue.
Backed up and then reformatted the PS3, problem solved.
You may also want to try this to make sure it's not a laser problem:
Load up any downloaded game (or demo), when in the game press the PS Button and you should now be able to see the Games Disc show up in the XMB.

Game is in Ps3, wont eject, says no game in the xmb screen


if the disc is spinning with some clacking noise then its all right,use the manual eject button 3 to 4 times.Now the disc should be sited on the disc plate.If you think that this works but not through the software then update the firmware.On new slim PS3 disc stuck,it doesnt void your warranty.
Thanks for using Fixya

My ps3 won't load any discs. when i insert a disc the disc icon doesn't even show up on the xmb bar.


well honestly I think your going to either get a new PS3 or buy a new disk reader because usually if the system cant even read the disc then the disc reader is busted and its pretty useless without it. hope I helped you out

How can I get my ps3 to play dvds, cds, and ps3 cds


For cd's go in the xmb to music, for dvd's and blu-ray movies goto movies in the xmb.
Game blu-ray discs will be started from in the game menu in the xmb.

The option run automaticly should be turned on in tehe settings of the ps3 by default, else you have to start them manualy, as described above.

Also read the manual that came with the ps3,
it holds manny answers to alot of your questions that may arise further on.
You can find the manual also here:

Succes.

Are the ps3 games supposed to load when you put them in? I put a game in and nothing happens/


It may be set to NOT AUTO LOAD games or discs. Check your game settings in the "Settings" menu on the XMB at start up.

Ps3 wont read games or dvd. but main menu is fine. system less than year old.


unfortunately sounds like your laser is shot. if the disc inserted icon is showing yet no discs will be recognized in there relevent places on the xmb then i'm afraid your laser is most definatley...to put it technically...caput. if you have warranty use it immediatley.

My ps3 doesnt read games


your laser had stopped reading games and most likely bluray movies also sometimes they still read regular dvd's and music cd's sometimes non of then but I can guaranty is your laser you need to know what model you have because there is 2 different types of lasers for ps3 and you can install the laser your self or have someone do it for you we are a ps3 specialist we carry all major ps3 parts and accessories but if you can find somebody locally is better for you

Ps3 disc,s wont load. in fact no disc loads can anyone help?


Need more information. What do you mean you haven't been able to load anything since? What game is it? What version of the PS3 system's XMB are you running? Version 2.2 came out last night. Try updating.
