    yeah i have the same problem, i was playing a game my ps3 froze after the restart it wouldnt play any games...

  • qjquinn Mar 15, 2008

    I ran the update, and then about an hour and a half later in the middle of playing Uncharted, it asked me to re-insert the disk. Which I did to no avail.

    I rebooted the machine and then the PS3 would not recognise anything in the Blu-Ray drive.

    I've just been on the phone to Sony and they're just going to replace it.

    They did not ask where I bought the console, only when. My machine was registered online when I bought it, so maybe the warranty works off that.

PS3 wont read any discs (games & dvd's) Do


If the PS3 can't read the disks, the laser is the only thing that could cause the trouble. You could've scratched the laser when you cleaned it, or it could have been broken from the start. I recommend calling Sony and calling for a repair. Just hope that they will repair it for free even though you voided the warranty by opening it up.

When i updated my PS3 for the new Call of Duty it stopped reading the disks. It worked fine b4 the upload but now it wont play any of d games i have. Whats d craic, how do i sort this


It might just be coincidence that your blu-ray drive has packed up at the same time as the update. Ring up Sony and tell them this and you could get a new console for free if your in the warranty.

Can't play games or movies


you have a disc read error on your ps3. you can either send it to sony and pay 150 if not under warrenty, or you can get a whole new disc drive for about 50-60 bucks on ebay. you can find a video on youtube on how to install it yourself. its pretty simple.

My ps3 won't load any disc


Try using other discs, like movies, blu-rays, or a dvd. If those don't work, there is a problem with your disc drive and it will need to be sent in for repairs.
