LG DVD Player says No Disc every time I put in a CD or DVD. Please help!


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, from your description the pladder motor is not turning which means the CD'S & DVD'S are not been sampled for playback. The only way to fix this would be to replace the assembly, not cost effective for repair, much cheaper to buy a new player.

Hello..my ps3 (slim) console cant play the disc game because after i instert the disc few seconds later there's a sound (like when the disc start to eject) but the disc still inside and the icon for game...


Step 1: Does another game disc work?
Step 2: If so then the problem lies within that disc. If another game disc does not work check all your discs for scratches.
Step 3: if your discs are all Dirty/Scratched try cleaning them with a soft cloth or disc cleaner. Step 4: If none of these yield results try cleaning out the disc sensor inside the ps3.
Step 5: this can be done with a compressed dust cleaner (spray can) or a very SOFT brush. You do not want to damage the ps3. Step 6: This should yield results. If not then there is a hardware malfunction.

FIFA 11 game wont start (PS3) gives me error code 80010514. All other games work fine. Game works fine in brothers PS3. Never had this problem before. PS3 support says they have had a lot of calls with...


It's eiyther one of two problems:

The first is that FIFA 11 is screwed up due to an EA Sports programming glitch within the game - (see http://www.community.eu.playstation.com/t5/Technical-Help/FIFA-11-Error-80010514/m-p/11614173))

OR

The second is that your PS3 is dying and the laser won't read discs. Which gets progressively worse, or so i've read. - (see http://www.ps3blog.co.za/2008/04/10/ps3-error-80010514-explained/)

I'm getting the same error but my PS3 isn't yet 12 months old, so is going back to the store.

P*ssed that I can't play the new FIFA though!!!!

I have just bought the ps3 move starter disc now it wont load games or dvds it will not work with new controls and old


You might have multiple issues going on here. First take a can of air and blow some air gently into the dvd drive. This will make sure there is no dust or dirt on the laser. If you still can't get any discs to load then the drive is probably bad but since no controls are working new or old, it could be a motherboard problem in which you would need to either get it replaced by Sony if your ps3 is under warranty or just get a new PS3.

Wont or cant resd discs?


This is going to be a bit long -- but very detailed, so please read it carefully. There are several reasons that an xbox 360 system will have problem reading discs. The error messages also vary from unreadable disk, no message at all but the game skips, "please insert disc in a 360 console" to "open tray." There are a few reasons this mayhappen:

1.Bad disc. Check the back of your disc for scratches. If it looks good (or plays fine in another console), then the disc is probably fine. Also-- try more than 1 game to be sure.

2. Bad laser. The XBox 360 has a DVD drive very similar to a PC's DVD drive inside. The drive contains a bunch of parts including a few motors and gears and a laser.The laser is the part that actually reads the disc. The reality is...with all the hours and hours of game play, lasers do eventually wear out. The laser isn't very easy to replace, but it is replaceable. You can find any and all XBox 360 lasers at the following website:

http://store.richspsxparts.com/xb360ac.html

3.Bad DVD Drive. Sometimes other components inside of the DVD drive can become bad such as the motor that spins the disk, the motors that open the tray, etc, etc. You can get a new DVD drive to just replace everything,including the laser, in one shot but there is a catch. The XBOX 360's DVD drive is tied to the motherboard using a software lock.The easiest way to overcome this lock is to buy the exact same manufacture DVD drive that is in your system now, remove the circuit board from the old DVD drive (which contains the software key) and transfer the circuit board into the new DVD drive that you purchase. If you do this simple procedure, there is no flashing involved. The following website carries DVD drives and also provides instructions on swapping the circuit board from the old drive into the new one.

PS3 wont play load games, have blue ray and normal dvd play


You can try cleaning the laser lens with a cd / dvd lens cleaner cd.

This usually doesn't work, your problem is 98% of the time caused by a Sony defect in the blu-ray drive itself.

The drive will gradually get worse and worse.

If your system is under warranty then by all means get it repaired by Sony for free otherwise you're looking to pay $150 for Sony to repair their own mistake.

You can reach them @ 1-800-345-SONY

They'll probably suggest another System Restore, Firmware update and a 100 other solutions that won't work because it's hardware related.

Sorry for the bad news.
