I put a disc in my ps3 the icon comes up but keeps spinning and not loading discs


There might be a problem with your disc drive, you could test it by instead of putting a game in your console, put a dvd or blu-ray in, if the movies load, the laser may be dirty if they don't load, then there is probably a problem with your laser and it would need to be repaired from Sony.

Wont read disk and when u go 2 down loaded games goes black


This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

I cannot speak on the downloaded games going black at this point.

Change your laser, get your system back reading disc, then try the downloaded games again. If you still are experiencing the problem, please post again.

Ps3 bluray will not load cd's, games, or dvd's


If console will not read any discs (dvd cd or bluray)

If you hear it spinning
1 Either the lasers is bad (replace laser)
2 drive board is bad, can be controller chip (send into sony or replace chip)

If you do not hear it spinning
1 spinner is bad (replace caddy assembly)
2 drive may be off track not completly loading the discs (might need to replace side tack or reattach v shaped bracket to side tracks)
3 Controller on board can be bad (same as above)

Disc not reading


If you're getting a Disc Read Error (DRE), it could be one or both of these things.

Your laser lens is dirty or broken and needs to be cleaned or replaced, or your disc tray is faulty and needs to be serviced.

Try cleaning the lens and see if it will read. If you can hear the disc spin in the PS3, then your disc tray is fine.

PS3 wont play disc


okay, best thing to do is to make sure there is no dust or specs of dirt on the laser cause that is what reads the discs and loads the info.

Get a can of air and blow it gently into the drive so it gets the dust and/or dirt particles out of the way.

Now go ahead and try different games, music cd's, dvd's, etc. If it still doesnt read them then your going to need a new laser which you can search for on Ebay and get them pretty cheap and most of the people will give instructions on how to change out the laser.

My ps3 won't load any games


You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

Will not let me play any games


Hello.
When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first.
Also, I highly doubt it is the hard drive as it has nothing to do with loading up the disc. It will only engage after the laser has initialized and loaded the disc.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you.
