Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 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 will not play games or read disc, what can i do?


Hello,

I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.

Take care.

PS3 - Unable to read disc


Hi,

Follow these steps when you are facing "disc wont read" problem


Step 1:Remove the disc from the system.


Step 2:Use a cloth to clean in small circles around the disc (not in a big circle going around the disc). Use DVD or CD disc cleaner if available. If you use cleaner, use a different dry cloth to clean the disc no more than three minutes after application.


Step 3:Verify that there are no disc-destroying marks on the disc. Deep scratches and chips in the middle of the disc can render a disc inoperable.As your Playstation 3 is used more and more, the lens that reads Blue-ray discs can become dirty. This will lead to discs skipping or not being read by the console. If you find this is happening on your Blue-ray discs, either movies or games, you may need to have your console cleaned. Be careful when attempting any sort of cleaning of your console, as improper handling will further damage the Playstation 3. Contact a member of Playstation Support for information on console maintenance.


Thank you !!

Won't play games


We had a similar problem with our PS3. Called Sony tech support and they walked us through several troubleshooting steps, but couldn't get it to read a disc.

Go to the Playstation Forum: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/
In the "Search" box, type "will not read disc" and you'll find others with similar problems.

If your PS3 is under warranty, they'll likely have you ship the old one back and they'll replace it. Unfortunately, that means you'll be without a PS3 for 3-4 weeks. Good luck.
