Yes you can fix this you just need to readjust the laser a little - it can be done from home using a good guide or you can send it in and they will fix it for you.

Sounds like your loading mechanism is broke. Should be a relatively easy fix if you can find a tech.

Hi I have a G640 model laptop, when I am trying to download to disc the drive seems to be making a very loud noise when the disc is being read, could you please help or offer any advice? Thanks


Does the disk get scratched when you take it out?
What is the loud noise like exactly? One continuous long scrrrr noise, or something like a tapping noise?
By download, you are referring to burning? Do the disks come out working fine and readable by other devices or computers?

You can try to put in a disk cleaner disk, such as :http://www.amazon.com/Maxell-DVD-LC-Lens-Cleaner-Blue/dp/B00000JPPI/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1308503466&sr=1-7
You can find disk cleaner things like that in bestbuy or radioshack. I am referring to cleaning the disk drive lens, not the disk itself.

Try to use a different disk brand, and if all else fails, I suggest giving it back via warranty, as most likely it is a mechanical problem with the drive itself, in which case you would not be able to fix it yourself unless you take it apart and try to find what is making the noise, which could take a while depending on your experience with electronics.

Ps3 will not read games.. the blue and green light are both on.. its not making any weird noise.. its seems as if its spinning and reading but the game icon wont pop up to indicate there is a game in...


This is unfortunately due to the Blu Ray lens developing a fault within the disk drive or becoming dirty. Usually it will still play DVD's but not Blu Ray discs or games. You could try a laser lens cleaning disc but 9 times out of 10 this doesnt usually work. I am guessing this is the new PS3 slim model you have trouble with, which I am pretty sure are still under a year old from launch date. In which case I would give Sony a ring as this should still be under warranty. They should offer you a replacement free of charge.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My playstation 2 makes a weird clicky sound when I try to play some of my dvds or games and sometimes it comes up with disk error or unable to read disk and its a brand new disk


Your PS2 lens is displaced from its original position that is what scratching your Discs and makes weird noises too.There can possibly be another reason for them ,your PS2's reading lens is dirty and it is covered by a layer of dust that scratches your Discs and makes sounds too.
You should first clean the lens of your PS2 watch this video to know how to clean your PS2's lens:


Disk read errors are mainly due to dirty or worn out lens,so clean your PS2's lens to get rid of this problem and as for that sound that will get fixed by cleaning lens if still it makes that sound then you will have to take your PS2 to repairer to set the lens height.
Thank you!

It just wont read a disc.it seems like its tryin to but it wont do anything but make weird noises


It does that for all types of disks? If yes then either the lens inside it is dirty (clean it)  or the unit is dead (replace it).

My 360 keeps saying unreadable disk no matter what game i put in


Ok, this is optical lens assembly failure. the lens is burned out and unable to scan due to lens failure. simply replacing the dvd rom optical lens assembly will restore the reading ability of your unit.

Player shows '' No Disc'' even when inserted with a disk


When player says no disk, even if the disk inside, and you hear a whirring and clicking noise when you insert a disk, that means that the CD lens is dirty or defective, and the CD drive cannot read the initial CD track, and returns no disk.

Try first using a CD cleaner disk, if that does not work, then you will need to take the apart the unit to clean lens with isopropyil alcohol and cotton sticks.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
