Ok...when I turn ON the PS3 it goes to main menu. When I insert disc, nothing change on screen and not even loadind or reading it. You can hear the disc spining,the drive pulls it in and thats it, I had deleted every single thing which I store prior to this problem and also update the system and software via internet. and its still doing the same thing. Sometime when you try to eject disc,it takes more then 2 minutes to eject disc. I had tried my PS3 games and also DVDs but didnt work..Please help. Thanks Ronald

Do you see the little clock like icon in the top right corner of the screen when you first insert a disc the loading disc icon? if so then it could either just be the drive itself or a software issue in which case you can try a few things before replaceing the drive.

First just reset to factory default settings under system settings.

P.S. i assume its not reading any kind of disc if it isnt reading anything also double check to make sure the disc you are using are still good and not just really dirty or scratched. GIve us more info and what disc your trying to check so we can further help you out.

Ps3 not spinning disc, replaced spindle motor, did not fix. Please help


Hi there, this is because the actual laser needs replacing, not the disc spinner motor. With the PS3 the laser reads the disc data type, whether it be a DVD, game , audio cd or blu ray movie. It then spins the disc up to the required read speed. When the laser is faulty is cannot read the disc type so will not spin at all.

Hope this helps

My ps3 is not reading discs


Hi,

This problem is common with the PS3 and typical of a failure of the bluray drive. It can sometimes be resolved by cleaning the laser pickup lens but often the lens itself needs to be replaced.

For a full breakdown on the issues involved please view this FixYa Tip.

If this helps please do leave a vote for the solution.

Thanks.

No game disc read


Are you using games from the same region? It kinda sounds like your laser is dead or dying.
