you need to call Sony and tell them about the error..its like the RROD of Xbox360..a hardware failure,most likely with the lens mechanism..i had the same error too and had to pay up to get it repaired..hope your console is under warranty..all the best!regards!

Will not read disk


If your PS3 won't read your disc, then try the tips below. They may help you fix your PS3.
Firstly check the actual disc that you are trying to play for scratches, smudges and dirt. If it is smudged or dirty clean it (instructions are in the PS3 user manual). In any case, try another disc in the PS3 and see if that works. If it does then most likely the cause of your problem is the disc. It may be too scratched up, from the wrong region - [many discs are locked to a certain region and will not play on a system in another region], etc.
If your PS3 will not read any disc, try turning it off and on again - Place it in standby mode (when it shows the red light) and flip the switch on the back, or if it is a slim place it in standby mode and unplug it. Wait a couple minutes and turn it back on again.
Unfortunately if that doesn't work try resetting it may fix the PS3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds until you hear 2 beeps. This will reset the PS3's settings.
If your PS3 will not read disc still then the lens may be dirty. You can fix this by getting a lens cleaner. Most electronic stores sell them. Follow the instructions on the lens cleaner.
However if your PS3 will not read disc, then you have a more major problem. In order to fix your PS3 you will either have to send your PS3 to Sony for repairs, or get a good PS3 repair guide and fix it yourself.
If your PS3 is still under warranty, then I would recommend that you send it to Sony for repairs since you will void your warranty if you open your PS3.
However if your warranty has expired, the fastest and cheapest option to get your PS3 working again is to get a good, step-by-step PS3 repair guide and repair it yourself. You see, if you were to send it to Sony, they will charge you around $150 and there will be a 4-6 week wait to get your PS3 back, or you will get a refurbished unit. Good repair guides costs downwards of $75 and offer 1 hour fixes so that you can get back to using your PS3 as quickly as possible.

Wont play ps3 games


try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

Read disc error tweaking dont help


common problem with all PS systems, I have had the same problem with my PS1, PS2 and the PS3 - opted me to move away from PS.

Unfortunately I don't have a solution for you other that to replace the lens, each one of my machines I had to replace.

Even feedback from sony suggested lens replacement.

Good Luck.

GAMES WONT LOAD


The same problem happened to me yesterday, i was playing GTA IV then it suddenly stopped reading, and now i have a real hard time making one ps3 game work...the ps2 and psONE games work fine, but the ps3 ones dont load or take real hard work to make them load.

Is it a problem from a patch or a virus probably?

My ps3 doesnt reading any discs


Do you have the receipt? If you do, return it to the retailer and ask if they can replace it (they are legally obliged to replace it where I live, I'm not too sure about Asia though, but you should try anyway).

Or try to phone Sony and ask them (their customer service number should be on their website).
