There are two things that I would try first

1. Check to see if there are any scratches on the back of the disk and wipe it with a clean cloth

2. Buy a DVD cleaner and insert it into the system and check the laser

If neither of these things work, please post again

What do you do if the guitar hero 2 game will not load or work


If your on a PS3 TRUST ME THIS WORKS. My little brother messed with my disk tray and for somtime my PS3 wouldnt read my disk. Now tilt your system at a angle until it reads your disk. If your not on PS3, whatever part of the system is on the ground/table/desk ect tilt it upwards at a angle. Hope I helped. (Seriously it DID REALLY work)

I was playing my playstation 3 we suddenly it just stop as i was playing i then turn it of and took the game out and try to replay it but it wouldnt read the disk. what should i do


Hello,
If the system does not stay shut down(giving you the red blinking light) and it only won't read the disk then it seems that you have fallen victim to the totally not awsum wickedness of what I think is a dirty laser lens.
I know that youtube.com has many great vids telling you exactly how to clean your ps3 laser lens and get your system up and running again.
I hope I have helped, let me know how it goes!! thanks

You need to replace the blu-ray laser.

That's it. There's nothing else you can do.

My PS3 wont read disks


This is a laser problem. Blu-ray drives use a laser with a magnifying lens, and any dust on them at all will cause problems. These lasers are also known to fail and cost around $50 for a new one on ebay. You can also do a fan test to blow out your system. this works much better than using an air compressor. To do this, turn off the power switch on the back of your console, hold your finger on the eject button, then flip the power switch on the back of the system to the "on" position. When the fan comes on release the eject button. The fan should then go into overdrive and run hard for about 20-30 seconds. Keep in mind, if your system is pretty dirty this is going to blow dust all over everything around it,
so do it away from other electronics! Good luck...

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.
