This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

I have a 40GB ps3 and when i put mlb 10 the show in from blockbuster(rented)the ps3 did not read the disc, although it does read DVDs and has internet access working. What should I do?


Blockbuster "Cleans" their DVDs/BlueRay Discs/Etc....

.......Using a Buffer-type device to basically rub all the scratches off........
and fill them in as well.........

........So.........

Just take the disc back and ask for a new or better copy to rent........they won't charge you again and they'll extend your rental days to accomodate your inconvenience.
That Should Solve The Problem!

Please Rate Me & fill out a quick testimonial, k.

Thank You! I appreciate it.

PS3 not loading games, CD's or Blueray discs. Have swapped over blue ray drive and still not loading so we know it is not a drive fault. Restored PS3 to factory settings and still not loading discs. Blue...


The problem itself has not been solved but after more investigation I have found out that this is currently un-repairable.
This is because the console itself has a hardware blueray drive failure due to manditory firmware 3.00 released by Sony and there is currently no fix in place.
From what I can see on the net it looks like Sony maybe being sued over this issue. Sony has also stated that they are now looking into this firmware update to see what went wrong, they have not yet made any further comment.

Discs wont read on ps3.


Question: does it play blueray movies? Mine did this, but would still play movies. I found a "Corrupted Data" file in my Games/data folder, and ended up doing a quick restore, under ths System menu. I now have no problems in this area...games start properly every time. You will lose all your saves and any dowloaded content, so back up if you can.

PS3 not recognizing any disc


See if a DVD works. For me, I know my Bluray is ruined because I can watch DVDs and play PS2 games fine but anything Bluray does not work. If a DVD does not work, you have more of a problem, if DVD does work you need a new BlueRay which Sony should take care of for you. If you don't have receipt, etc. like me you can buy a new Bluray (KES-400AAA) on Ebay and use this guide to install it http://edpsystemssupport.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=29&Itemid=45.
Hope that helps.
