PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

Ps3 game fallout 3 won't load but other games do, which makes me think that the ps3 is ok. Fallout 3 used to load but now it won't. Any suggestions the game is new from christmas.


You should check the disc for scratches and spots, then clean it. If it still doesn't load there might be something wrong with the disc that you cannot see. Check these and I hope it helps

PS3 will not accept discs


sounds like a product fault, is it still within warranty? id have that sent off and checked

or are there some kind of settings, one of the settings may be interfering with it accepting discs

what discs are you trying to use? if you are using genuine PS3 dics and even DVD movies wont be accepted then there must be a fault in the system somewhere

also, how long have you had it? less than a year and theres definitely a problem

i'll be honest, i aint a Playstation Guru, but this is what im thinking it may be, i may be wrong, if i am then dont hesitate to pull me up i am willing to learn ;)

My ps3 won't load any discs. when i insert a disc the disc icon doesn't even show up on the xmb bar.


well honestly I think your going to either get a new PS3 or buy a new disk reader because usually if the system cant even read the disc then the disc reader is busted and its pretty useless without it. hope I helped you out

80 GB PS3 doesn't accept or reject Disc


It sounds like the optic sensor went bad. If this goes bad it wont be able to tell if a disc is loaded or not. So it can't accept or reject them.

My system wont read any ps3 games


Looks like you got the famous PS3 BD-drive failure. I would suggest checking if the disks are spinning in the drive. To do that take a game disc and insert it into the drive and check which way the image is facing, and then eject it after a few moments, if the letters and images face the same way, then the disc hasn't spun at all inside the drive, so the drive motor is dead, i think you need to take it to one of those ps3 repair shops
I think you need to send them off to sony for a new disc drive.It's a disc drive failure.if you use it a lot then you may have just worn it out. ialso advise that you call sony tech support just to verify that that is the problem. It'll be $150 for the repair but worth the fix if you use it so much time.

I repair PS3's occasionally, mainly replacing PS3 laser's. But when I put the drive back together about 1 out of 4 drives does not accept the disc at all (it won't **** it in), or will accept the disc but...


start by the drive being in the empty position (pindel motor / tracks on a slant) then make sure the front loading sensors are pointing towards the front. Every gear / spring within he lid should relaxed. Mech should work perfect. Also flip the drive upside down and make sure the metal bar is locking underneath at the back.
