Blu Ray Drive Broken


As you have just found out this is a very common problem on the PS3. Unfortunately it is caused by the blue-ray drive which develops a fault after usually a couple of years or so.

If you decide to try and repair this yourself - the drive is still going to cost you around 150 to order on its own so if Sony are offering to exchange the whole unit for 150 that could be the best option.

There is no guarantee that Sony will ever fix this recurrent problem with drives on the PS3. In fact its far more likely they will bring out a brand new console rather than go back on old ground to rectify problems with this one.

Most of these drives are going bad after the warranty has expired so its not costing Sony anything - so from their point of view why should they fix it?

Just a few thoughts on it. Anyway if you do decide to replace the drive yourself there are several good videos on YouTube that show how to do this.

Have a look at this as an example below and please remember to rate this answer

My ps3 wont load any games

Check all of your settings and make sure everything is configured properly. If you made any changes to you system configuration just before this issue happened just change back to previous config and see what happens.
If everything is correct, then, unfortunately cleaning the lens is not going to help very much. This is similar to the "disc read error" on the boxy ps2. The best thing for you to do is to call sony and tell them that your blu-ray player is not working you can only read regular dvds. It has happened to a few people that I know and they were still under warranty and it was replaced. If this happens to be a common issue then maybe Sony will still replace it outside of warranty. Never know, but it is always worth a shot.

I bought a PS3 about 4 months ago. About 2 months ago the PS3 stopped reading games, I went and returned it and got new one. Now after 2 months af a new PS3 it stoped reading discs again. I am really...

Hi there. it sounds like the blue ray drive has failed on your ps3.I take it that sony repaired your old one or sent out a reconditioned unit? If it is still under warranty get them to replace it again and insist on a 12 month warranty. i am on my 3rd unit now and because its a 40 gig model which they dont make anymore i am having to do with yet another reconditioned unit. hope this helps.

Ps3 console: Put disks into machine and it now does not recognize them. The blue read light stays on, but get nothing.

I had the same issue after playing Call of Duty 4. Just wouldn't read any type of disc. Spoke to Sony sent a new PS3 out the very next day. My brother in law a week later experienced the same, again Sony sent new PS3 out. I think theres a problem with it, and thats why Sony just replaces them with no questions asked to avoid bad publicity

PS3 not playing any discs.

Sony charges 150$ plus s&h.
A new blu ray drive is 125$ if you know how to do it yourself it takes 10min to fix at a slow pace rather then the sony 3 month wait!
