Hi,

This is a common problem and Sony is offering to repair it at half the price of the console.However, you could try to grab a disk cleaner at wall-mart. The first thing to do if a DVD cleaning kit does not work is to preform a reset on the unit, with no disc in the unit power off and hold the power button until 3 beeps are heard or if you can bring up the main screen you can go right into the settings and reset the unit, now this is the first step before replacing the blu-ray drive/laser pickup assembly, however do note if you preform this type of reset you will lose any and all saved info on the unit, so please if you wish to save them connect an external hard drive and copy the files to that drive. If a hard reset does not cure the problem and the unit has the most resent updates then the disc drive or laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced, if you take the unit apart and give me the part number from your old one I can locate one for you if you wish to repair yourself, otherwise it would need to be taken in for repairs.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

My Playstation 3 wont load any games the menu shows up and i go to the GAME section and it wont show the disc. Please help. Thanks.


The most common reason for the Wii 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 Wii including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Wii going again!

My ps3 won't load any discs. when i insert a disc the disc icon doesn't even show up on the xmb bar.


well honestly I think your going to either get a new PS3 or buy a new disk reader because usually if the system cant even read the disc then the disc reader is busted and its pretty useless without it. hope I helped you out

Playstaion 3 games wont load how can it be fixed. the clock (loading icon) stops. no errors appear no disk shows up.


listen for the disc to start spinning

if the disc spinns then its prolly just a dirty laser lens and if it doesnt spin could be a bad laser i doubt its the blu ray logic boad cause the ones i have seen that were bad the disk reading icon never stops, this has also happened on broken lenses where it never stops. ussually if it stops its bad motor or dirty lense.
