    same exact thing happened to me. will not read games or dvd's anymore. Now my system is on back order, so I have no idea when I will receive my new console. Needless to say I am not very happy with the Sony. I think I should have gone with the 360

The Disc begins to be "read" and then stops suddenly, and restarts "reading" the disc until an error sign occurs on the screen


how long have you been using the player. There is every tendency that the lens (laser) of your player is weak and that's why it cannot read or play discs.

The lens (laser) is what makes the player reads discs, and if the lens is weak/dirty, there is no way it can read or play disc.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, if that does not solve the problem, then its means, the lens needs to be changed completely.

Good luck.
