Won't accept the disk and grinds


The first is that "Disc Read Errors Diagnosis mode could be the solution.

Load your PS2 without a disc inside and wait until you get to the main menu.

Press Triangle and highlight "Console", then press Triangle again and set "Diagnosis" to ON. What does this setting do? Basically, it focuses the laser on the disc so that it has an easier time reading discs.
In addition, you must turn this setting on EVERY time you load your PS2, as the PS2's system settings are never saved when you turn off your console

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.

My ps3 won't load any games


You can take a can of air and blow it into the drive. There could be dust or dirt on the laser.

If that doesn't work then its either going to be a bad laser in the dvd drive or main board inside of the dvd drive that is bad. You can order replacement lasers for your ps3 dvd drive on Ebay or you can replace the whole drive as well and find those on Ebay.

Discs wont read on ps3.


Question: does it play blueray movies? Mine did this, but would still play movies. I found a "Corrupted Data" file in my Games/data folder, and ended up doing a quick restore, under ths System menu. I now have no problems in this area...games start properly every time. You will lose all your saves and any dowloaded content, so back up if you can.

Ps3 not reading discs


take it back to the store and get them to fix it. I think the problem is the lasers are out of alignment as the same thing happened to mine.
