    My 60 g ps3 will not read a blue ray disc either. I thought the system was over heating, so I went bought external fans, didn't help. I went as far as restoring the system to the default settings, didn't work either.

    i have the same problem

  • Anonymous Dec 27, 2008

    This problem just started happening to me so this is as detailed as it gets, already sent this to sony: I've had my 60GB PS3 for a year and 2 months now, The system has developed a problem in reading Blue-Ray Discs which seems to go in stages:


    • Game Freezes - Can't access XMB for 10 Mins, when use XMB to quit all Icons remain on the loading sign for 2 minutes
    • Black Screen when Game is activated - Stays black until disc is ejected and system is restarted, system doesn't turn off unless disc is ejected and goes straight to red rather than the normal flashing before red
    • Game stays on loading screen - The game remains on its first loading screen, It doesn't appear to have frozen but HDD indicator is not flashing at all while when working normally it does flash, remains on this screen until disc is ejected, Disc takes long time to eject, once ejected system quits and returns to XMB
    • Disc is no longer recognized - Blue Light Constant On, Loading Circle Top-Right until disc is ejected, No Disc Option on Menu, Remains like this until disc is ejected and system is turned off then back switch is turned off for 10 seconds
    • Returns to Black Screen stage
    • Then back to Disc is not recognised

    The final stage remains until I turn the system off and leave it for about 3 Hours and then it works again for about 10 minutes before the same thing happens, I've got the latest software update and it effects all Blue-ray discs (I've only got Games) other discs such as DVDs and PS2 Titles work as normal. It usually stands vertically so I turned it horizontal but that hasn't had any effect. I carried out the "Restore PS3 System" in Full but that hasn't had any effect either. Any help would be very much appreciated though I fear its a hardware problem, if so could you tell me approximately how much would it cost to have fixed?

Can you be any more specific? is this a problem with one disk, one type of disk or all disks? What is the exact error you are getting? Are you trying to play a game, play a film, play an audio CD or are you using your PS3 as a Linux computer and trying to open a data disk? have you tried more than one disk? Without specifics there's just no way to guess what the problem is.

    Assuming "never reads the games" was posted by swabtheblin and that you are talking about PS3 game disks not PS2 disks; 
    Try restoring the default settings buy going to the Home menu, then go to Settings -> System Settings -> Restore Default Settings.
    If this is no help you may need to restore the system ***warning this will wipe all data from the hard-drive so back up any save games and personal data*** to do this go to the Home menu, then go to Settings -> System Settings -> Restore PS3 System.
    If this is no help message back with the following information; If you try a music CD and/or a movie will it read it or do you get the same error? Also do the game disks you are having problems with have blue on there under surface? Some PS3's have an issue reading blue disks. Did it stop reading disks after you tried to play Assassin's Creed by any chance? This and some other games are known to 'brick' some versions of the PS3. Lastly what is the exact error you are getting on screen?

    Alternatively if your PS3 is still under warranty contact Sony to arrange repair.

It says error 80010514


Hi

This ia a known error with the ps3 and unfortunately is not that easy to fix. Sony simply have the following to say about this error

"Error 80010514 - Issue reading Disks"

If this error is showing on more than one disk then the problem lies in the blueray drive itself which has become faulty. Sony are advising that these ps3's which are showing this persistant error need to be returned for service. Expected cost is around $150 if your unit is outside warranty.

For information on how to return your unit see this link
