You can either try to find a laser lens disk at Walmart and see if that will help or if it is under warranty send it back to Sony and let them fix it. Never try to fix the problem yourself unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing.

I've fixed 100's of PS3's. The blu-ray laser has failed. You'll need to swap it out.

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.

Cant 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 !!

Playstation 3 will not read disc , can i clean lens myself? not under warranty. just stopped reading the disc's


You can clean the lens but it almost never fixes the problem.

The problem is usually the blu-ray laser itself. It needs to be replaced.

Psp wont read the disc unless you hold the door shut w/o ...


If you dropped it, then the reader may be a little messed up. If the case around the disc is popped open a little bit, closing it all the way might stop the disc from spinning, resulting in not reading the disc. The only thing I recommend is to contact Customer Support on the Playstation website. They might be able to help you fix the problem or have you send it in. www.playstation.com

Playstation 3 - discs not reading


If the warranty is still intact, Sony can fix it. If not, open the ps3, open the blu-ray drive and clean the laser. If that doesnt work, replace the laser.
