Your lazer has burned out in your PS3. I had this happen to me one time the only way to get a new one is to send it to Sony and they well put a new one in. Or if you no how to build a lazer for your PS3 you can do that but it well cost you more for the parts so I would bring it back to Sony.

Hmm. May be because the disc is scratched? Not sure what it would be otherwise, if other games work just fine.

Guest

Look at the back of the box to see it says it is a region one or multi-region disk. Then I would try to play it in another PS3 to see if it will work.

What it sound like even through they put region 1 on the box the disk may be actually a multi-region disk so that the manufacture can press the same disk more.

The problem with this is the PS3 it set to play region 1 only disk. I had not seen this will Blu-ray disks yet but I have alot of DVD Anime titles that say region 1 on the box but the disk is actually multi-regioned.

Note if you are not in region 1 (US) then the same thing would apply to you home region.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: my ps3 slim wont read any disks...


Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 'see' or read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.


The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa
