Hello,
The most common reason for the PS3 not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your PS3 including a new laser. This is what you need to get your PS3 going again!
Hope this will help...

My PS3 is not reading or recognizing that there is a game disc inside. even when i eject and re insert the disc the console will not show that there is a disc inside. what can i do to fix this ?


Hello there,

The problem with your ps3 is that your lens is very weak and cannot read a game disc that is inserted into it.

To fix this, all you have to do is to replace the lens of your ps3 and it will work perfectly fine again.

Take care and goodluck

Hello, my ps3 will not always read ps3 games - all other media it reads fine, i have to insert the disk and eject over and over until it detects it? Also my play TV starts flickering within 10min of it...


Inserting and ejecting the game over and over will not cause your PS3 to read games. The bluray laser has gone out so it can no longer detect the bluray games and will need to be replaced to fix the problem. This can be done by any professional game console repair shop. If you want, you can check us out at www.wiredextreme.com. You can also contact us at support@wiredextreme.com or 214-222-5788. Hope this helps.

My ps3 wont read the games then when i push the eject button it acts like it wants to eject it but it wont.. i have to stick anther game inside of my ps3 to get the disk out.. whats wrong with my ps3?


It's definitely related to your blu-ray drive.

Are you comfortable opening up the PS3? If not I'd check to see if there is a local game console repair shop around.

Let me know I can help either way.

PS3 will not read any discs


The laser lens might be damaged. Is your warranty still available?

Ps3 won't read the disc


I had the same problem some time ago. My wife attacked it with a hoover and out popped our Sky TV Viewing card. One of the kids had posted it in there for me...!
Make sure there is nothing inside the machine as best you can as my machine accepted all the discs and ejected normally but it just would not read any.
Hope this helps.
