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 bought god of war 3 for my ps3 and when i insert it it sounds like its gonna read and then it makes a clank noise and nothing happens but it reads all other games but this one


It sounds like the disc is broken. Blu-ray disks are scratch resistant, but if they have even the tiniest of cracks or dings, the disc is often unplayable. It is usually characterized by the weird sounds you're hearing when you try to load the game.

Take the disc into bright light and check the underside very carefully, looking for any sign of a hairline crack. Even if you can't find a crack, my suggestion is to return it for a different disc, as it seems probable that the game is broken.

Ps3 not reading disc..Please help


Do you see the little clock like icon in the top right corner of the screen when you first insert a disc the loading disc icon? if so then it could either just be the drive itself or a software issue in which case you can try a few things before replaceing the drive.

First just reset to factory default settings under system settings.

P.S. i assume its not reading any kind of disc if it isnt reading anything also double check to make sure the disc you are using are still good and not just really dirty or scratched. GIve us more info and what disc your trying to check so we can further help you out.

Put dvd and get nothing ,no sound or picture,i've owned this one for a few months and this has happened a few times . sometimeS I HAVE TO WAIT TILL THE NEXT DAY FOR PS3 TO WORK


Test your unit with different discs and also try the ones that dont work in other units, ps3 as well as other dvd players and disc reading machines.
if your warranty is still valid its also a good idea to get on to Sony to make sure if there is a problem with your macine you get it replaced or repaired. See my tip on warranty companies and what to do if they cant help you.
Good luck.
