This can be caused by a dirty laser in the drive. Try cleaning the laser with a q-tip and alcohol. If this does not fix the problem, the laser may need to be replaced. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

If the unit is not under warranty, go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can clean/replace the laser for you. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers the whole console, not just what we repaired. We also offer extended warranties up to 4 years at additional cost. If you have any other questions/concerns feel free to email support@wiredextreme.com or call toll free 1-888-389-3038.

Fifa11 on my ps3 wont start


Make sure the disc isnt severally scratched, or dirty. Your Playstation3 most likely cannot read the disc because of the following. If it is only that game then I recommend replacing the disc.

Ps3 not reading disc..Please help


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.

You will need to have your laser replaced...If you have no warranty Sony will do it for $150 dollars. If you do have a warranty you will not have to pay Sony anything because they will fix it.

Ps3 wont read games


Try shutting down the ps3, unplug it from the wall and replug it. If it continues to not read it, try another game. If it can't read another game try a blu-ray movie if you have one. If it doesn't ready any of those then your blu-ray laser has failed. If that's the case then you will need to call Sony for a repair =(.

Hope this helps.

Isnt reading games


it Depends on the model but usually this happens because of dust or dirt on the lens so a cleaner may help. although if that doesn't work it means the laser has gone bad, which is a common problem with ps3's. Some newer models of ps3 have dual lasers so if the blu-ray laser fails you wont be able to play blu -ray disc (games, movies) but the other laser will still read dvds (non blu ray) and cds

Ps3 not reading any games or disc's.


Well The Ps3 doesn't read all the games not yet atleast you have to update the PS3 and you probably have to register the PS3 and you have to get PS3 Live.
