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.

If the unit is not under warranty go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can clean/replace the laser for you. All our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers the whole console not just what we repair. We also offer extended warranties up to 4 years at additional cost. If you have any other questions/concerns feel free to email support@wiredextreme.com or call 214-222-5788.

The disk drive holder has probably been knocked out of place, contact Sony 08705998877 Sony Playstation Customer Service.
Or take it to your local generic electronics repair store.

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!

Hawx 2 is freezing at 17% while installing the game data. Anything I can do to get it to push past 17% and finish installing?


Make sure your PS3 has enough disk space and the wifi signal is uniterrupted.
Deleting some saved games that you never use is one thing to free disk space.

Games freezes at same spot on 2 different Dogs Life Disks


Possibly the disk already damaged, see for tiny scratch or something on it.
Try cleaning the disk using disk cleaner, if still wont help, replace the disk.

Try a different disk, if it's OK, then your PS 2 is OK!!!

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
