Sounds like your laser may have gone bad. It needs to be replaced. Try sending it to CPR in NYC. They are quick and cheaper than SONY.

My ps3 wont read disk but turns on but i cant play games.....WHAT DO I NEED NEW ON MY PS3


You either need to send it in for a new disk drive, or there may be a new update you have not gotten, keeping you from reading disks (unlikely) you should send it in.

My ps3 wont load or read any of my games whats wrong?


Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is most often caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 'see' or read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.


The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa

Playstation 3 wont play PS3 Games


ok right so your ps3 wont read disks huh well first of all id like to say this has happened to me twice and it has worked perfectly for me and i quarentee it will work for you ...

first save all your data to a memory stick

secondly go to settings, system settings, and format your ps3 by clicking on full format this will delete all your filles :( but will refresh your ps3


BTW this formatting thing will take atleast 4 hours so just leave your ps3 on and chill out watch t.v or something :)

hope this helps

Ps3 disk reading error


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.
