My ps3 wont accept any disc. try putting it in but it stays there. Also when i try to put it in the blue light comes on but the game is not in the system, and when i push the blue button afterwards, it...


Hi Sef,

If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.

Causes:

The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that take the damage are the GPU and the CPU.

You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gaming again.

Solution:

You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it for you, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about $150 for the repair!

Quicker Solution:

For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide that will show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.

The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!

My ps3 does not appear to be reading discs, any help


Hi mad1408,

Yes the disc reading problem on the PS3 is massive!

Let me run through what is going on and how you can fix it:

Cause:

It is the laser that needs readjusting in order to fix this problem. The good news is that the drive will still work as long as you readjust the laser in most cases - so you don't need to replace the drive!

Solution:

You can send it in for Repair and they will fix it for you - although this will cost about $150 in a repair bill and you can expect to wait for about 4 weeks to get your console back.

Quicker Solution:

It is possible to fix the PS3 games reading error from home because as mentioned above all you are doing is readjusting the laser.

My ps3 dosn't read the games.


This is normally because the laser on the drive is slightly off. The good thing is that you can fix this yourself it is quite simple.

Or of course you can send it in to be fixed it is up to you.

If you send it in you will have to pay out about $130 to get it fixed.
