Hello, this is not ur fault guest. mine has jsut done the same thing. it is due to the recent 2.17 and 2.30 updates casuing laser to spin too fast and burn out. ring sony and they provide wonderful service and will send out a coupon via email to send the broken console to them, and will post a new one out to u. I was very impressed with how friendly and helpful the guys at sony were, and anew ps3 is currently on its way to me. contact sony asap as they r still covering ps3s which has just ran out of warranty for this issue. good luck!

  • Like the 360, the PS3 also has problems.  This problem is known as the SoD (spin of death). In this the lens of your PS3 stops working. Sony is the best one that can help for this kind of error. Best to stick with them, or if your retailer has an exchange policy, ask for a new PS3. But my local dealer fixes this up for 125$. 
  • IMPORTANT - DO NOT OPEN YOUR CONSOLE YOURSELF AS THE WARRANTY THAT SONY PROVIDES WILL THUS BE VOID!!!

I'm glad you had good luck with customer service, because I haven't. When I finally am able to talk to someone which is rare because I guess there so busy with all the problems with there games. I'm have been met with rudeness, and indifference. Now on top of all that my system is on back order and there is no telling when I may get a new one sent back to me. Not happy at all with sony

PS3 stopped reading PS3 games


This is most likely do to a previous freeze up while on the PS3. All you have to do is to first disconnect all of the plugs and wires. Then you put them back in and turn on the PS3. It should read your PS3 game discs.

My ps3 doesnt read games


your laser had stopped reading games and most likely bluray movies also sometimes they still read regular dvd's and music cd's sometimes non of then but I can guaranty is your laser you need to know what model you have because there is 2 different types of lasers for ps3 and you can install the laser your self or have someone do it for you we are a ps3 specialist we carry all major ps3 parts and accessories but if you can find somebody locally is better for you

PS3 Not Reading Games


If you have this problem it is because the laser has shifted from where it needs to be and the good news is that it is not that hard to fix all you need is a good repair guide.


You can of course send it in but the disc reading issue you should be able to fix in less than 1 hour from home.

Ps3 wont read games discs


ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.
