PS 3 Problem

The system does not load discs. At the start up screen there is a little green dot in the upper right hand corner saying that the system wants to load disc, however for some odd reason it does not load.

If you are one minute over the year warranty it will cost $149.00 on Credit card to recieve a refurbished one in 10-14 days. This after contacting sony several diffrent times reguarding my issue of my system no longer wanting to read my ps3 games.... The same issue happend with ps2 system playing only ps1 games. Probally the same exact problem the arm or eye won't go all the way over to read that extra bit of info. I have also heard it is only the 60. unfortunatley my warranty was one day over the day I purchased it so now I have to pay.

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.

Will not play any discs or recognise any of them. it starts showing the blue light, then its showing the disc loading on the top right hand corner but nothing happens.


hello,

go to the system settings on the XMB menu, and check if the disc auto start is on.

if that does not work, go to restore PS3 system.

or you update the firmware, then go to playstation store from your menu, download a demo and see if it works.

System shows that the disc is loading, but does


That sounds like a faulty laser. Unfortunatly,Sony has not fixed this yet and i don't think they will anytime soon. I would suggest cleaning the laser lens first with alcohol and a q tip,if that doesnt work,have the laser lens professionally. If none of the above help,then it's the spindle motor and that can be tested by putting your hand on the ps3 after you slide a disk into the loading slot and feeling for very small vibrations.

Ps3 wont read any game/dvd


How old is your PS3?
Not loading 1 particular disc or all disc?

Assuming you PS3 starts up into the console screen, and fairly used, it might be time to replace the lens.

If your machine is able to load the main screen but not able to load any disk probably the blu ray lens is defective or dirty.
If you have the little dot on the top corner of the tv like loading a disk and not going anywere the loading process is the part involved.Try to clean the laser or try to replace the laser
