There is a warning on the website under comsumer alerts about buying from some unauthorized wholesalers.
They are concerned about no warranty.
If you search the site, you may not need to send these units for repair.

Do you people have best buy in your area? If you do you could fix it, you wouldn't need any warranty. But if you dont have this kind of store, you could go to any electronic store that sells Electronics, i'm sure they will fix it. Hope this helped you.

PS3 Disc Reading Problems

Your blu-ray laser is bad which is why it will still play regular dvds. Contact Sony to see if it is till under warranty.

Ps3 doesnt read any disk

Mine did that as well. The problem was unfortunately severe. Once my system froze for an extended period of time and the lazer actually fried itself. I had to send it to sony to fix. If you are still covered by a warranty, it would be best to send it to the company. its hell though

Ps3 not reading disk

Actually Ryan, PS3 does has an OS. It's a version of Linux. Shat, does a message come up and say it wont read the disc, or a black screen? If it's the black screen, get a USB keyboard, hook it to the PS3, turn the PS3 on, and type in boot game-os or boot game.os I can't remember for sure which one it was. Let me know if that helps.

Ps3 not reading disk

Not much I'm afraid, unless you still have contact with the mate you bought it off. They may still have their receipt/warranty card lying around which you can use to get it repaired.

PS3 having trouble reading game discs!!!

hey guys. the problem is that the blue ray reader is some how broken and it won't work. mine kept freezing during games like after 3 mins. and it wouldnt read any more discs for that day. you need to change the blue ray reader and that costs about 175$. thats alot of money and its probably not worth it.
