    The PS3 noted a system update? Be careful once the new version was loaded (firmware 2.10) the PS3 would not play any disks!


    Tried to format harddrive, this did not work (advise from Sony)!!

My ps3 console will not play game discs for some reason! It will play movies just fine but not games HELP!!!!!


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

My PS2 will play only some DVD movies fine. It does the same with PS2 games. Seems like they have removed something that the older, larger PS2s had that allowed them to read DVDs more deeply and play...


Hi there Mike,

The only possible reason for your problem, since your slimline ps2 is STILL reading them (but just a little slow sometimes), is because the lens could hardly read your discs due to dust build up. Try cleaning it using a disc cleaner and letting it spin for like 30 seconds. If this does not fix the issue, then you may have to MANUALLY clean the lens. Open the cover and once you see the lens, get a clean swab or qtip and damp it in an alcohol and gently wipe the lens in a circular manner. Then let it dry and try to play those discs again.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

My xbox keeps saying open tray I brought it to a guy twice and no fix everytime I put a game or movie in it it reads and says open tray


Reasons

1, the disc may be dirty
2. the mian reason for this your xbox drive cannot read the disc , because the power of the lens is gone(not completely) ,

solution:

1. keep your disc inside the drive and switch off the console, again swith on try this 2 to 3 time
2. keep the console in vertical position or little slanding position(180 dg) make sure it does not fall

3. its better to buy hatddisc and load the game inside it , so that u lens life increased

4. change the entire drive

My psp isn't reading any of my games


sounds like the laser is shot or possibly dirty, either way needs lookin at. so may need new laser. my own personal preference, go custom firmware and do away with using the laser, theres lots info on the web if interested.

It doesnt even read that i put in a game


How long have you owned your system? You may be able to contact xbox for a repair under the warranty. If your warranty is expired and you're feeling adventurous, you can try to take apart the system and clean the lens of the disk drive with a cotton swab(Q-tip) very carefully, do not use much pressure, it will scratch. If this doesn't work, I suggest contacting xbox and having them fix it for you, if you don't have a warranty anymore, you may have to pay for the repair. www.xbox.com

I hope I was able to help you solve your problem and please rate! Thank you!
