You can go to wal-mart or any electronic store and get a laser eye cleaner for DVD this will also work on the ps1 & ps2 but not the ps3 - I recommend the Philips system, for under $15 you get the DVD laser eye cleaner and a disk cleaner with a micro fiber cloth it's a great deal just DO NOT use it in a laptop, laptop's take a different type but the disk cleaner is universal

My ps3 only plays ps2 games, some music cds and no movies what causes this problem?


The unit more than likely needs a new laser. Some units have 2 laser eyes. One for the blue ray / PS3 games and one for the audio / standard games. Sometimes the laser can become dirty and can be cleaned with a cd cleaner (never had much luck), or by disassembling the unit and cleaning the laser eye with a q-tip and alcohol. New lasers can be purchased off of ebay or through several online stores, but make sure you know which model laser you need as there are more than one.

My xbox360 won't read disc, spins for awhile and


The best bet is to try and clean the laser, if the unit is under warranty, contact microsoft and send it back, if not, dont use a laser cleaning kit, they are useless at cleaning and excellent at spreading the grime over the eye. Open the case, an online guide will help you learn the art of pulling apart the xbox, dis-assemble the dvd drive assembly and clean the laser using a cue tip or cotton bud. Good Luck.

Xbox 360 reads dvds but not gamers,why?


The Game and DVD requires different process.
80% of the time a weak laser will read dvd but it will
not load games ,

The laser needs to be replaced . They're cheap 20.00-30.00
and not hard to install yourself if you want to save some money.

Or you can have a shop swap it out for 80.00-90.00

If you have any questions just comment and ill respond.

On my xbox 360 when i have put my fifa 09 it say reading for a while then it says play dvd or clean your disc with a clothe and it really annoying me ?? jack


this is your laser thats losing power and needs either cleaning or the power adjusting so that its optimum again.

dont clean with the common disk cleaners as they are very abrasive and can actually damage the 360 laser eye.

instead strip down the console, then strip down the dvd drive and clean the laser eye with a cotton earbud with a little spit on the end of it. wipe the laser eye with a very gentle clockwise motion.

put everything back together and test if it works then you have done it. if it still does the same then you need to adjust the laser to make the power stronger so it will start reading again.

email me if you need help adjusting the pots on the laser.

ps: this can also happen if the disc is damaged or has the rings around it.

Disk dont read anything>>>!!!


If U want U can Buy a Laser Eye Cleaner from your local department store. The cleaner is a cd/disc and it
has small brushes located on it. This will make several passes over the Eye/Laser and this should clean
it. If the Problem is still present, then U need to open up the case and clean the Eye with a Q-Tip and a Liquid solution "Laser Eye Cleaner"
