Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
The disc icon under the game/movie setting is missing; can't play games or movies...??
Most often this is a sign of the common and dreaded failure of the bluray drive - and is usually specific to a failure of the laser pick up. The disc icon does not appear in this case because the system cannot 'see' the disc when there is a problem with the laser.
Occassionally this will resolve if you clean the laser but this is not guaranteed and often the laser will have to be replaced. For a more thorough breakdown of the causes and solutions and what is involved in cleaning the laser please view this FixYa Tip.
