This means that you need a new Bluray drive. They cost about $80 and can be found on consolezombie.com and other various sites. I actually can replace it for you if you'd like just check out my website here and decide if you'd like it fixed by me. http://ctrlr4repair.webs.com

the only other think i can suggest is to send it back to sony if you have the warranty otherwise you'll be stuck paying them $150 to fix it when someone like me can do it for less.

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.

There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a technician who has experience. There are many things that can go wrong.

My ps3 is not reading games


If it is not reading games,movies, or any sort of disk at all all it does is show the "reading disk" sign on the top right hand corner it most likely means that your blue ray reader died. That happened to me, i had to contact Sony to get it repaired. Of course i before hand i would recommend you to turn off system for a while, make sure disk is clean, and retry.

Reading disk, but wont play game


Check the disk for fingerprints or scratches. Also, try restarting the PS3 and try another game to make sure that your system is working properly.
