Unfortunately at this point, the optics are suspect. This can be confirmed by a service shop. There is not much that can be done other than replacing the optics. One thing you can do to verify this is try to play a music CD. If that works, the optics are defective and can no longer provide sufficient power to play a DVD. (Games are essentially DVDs).

I bumped my 40 gb PS3 the other day kinda hard, it wasn't dropped. Now, I turn it on and it works like usual,and I have a menu screen and I have the hand-spinning clock in the upper right corner. But...


First try a different disc if you haven't already, but it sounds like you may have knocked the laser out of alignment. On older playstations and other cd or dvd driven system the laser was much less sensitive then it is on the playstation 3 since it has a bluray laser. If you system is still within warranty i would suggest contacting sony to get it repaired, or take it back to the store you bought it from. If not under warranty then i would look into replacing the bluray drive. Often these parts can be purchased on ebay or various other sites.

Hi my ps3 80g system wont read games anymore can u help also if i restore ps3 completely will i lose trophies i dont want to lose them because ive got about 2000


Don't restore anything.

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. Do you see the time clock in the top right corner going around and around? If so, you are just having laser/lens problems. If you do not see the time icon spinning when you insert a disc, your PS3's Blu Ray drive controller board has gone bad and you will need to send it to Sony and not a

3rd party technician. Certain problems are only repairable by Sony. Good luck.

My PS3 freezes up...


if you already checked everything out then your best bet is to send it to the ones with the warranty because if you start fumbling with it you might just break off something or damage something either way leave it to the pros..

Ps3 wont play games, dvds, or blurays. The disc doesn't spin??


This may be a case of replacing the laser lens. If your console is out of warranty, take it to your local Game Stop, or somewhere that does Sony repair. PSR does Sony authorized repair, but it usually involves shipping. You can contact PSR at 877-777-3491, or email at psr_repairs@msn.com. Hope this was helpful

You voided your warranty by cracking your case man, you should have just sent it in to Sony for repair. I also suggest buying any system at Costco, they take back anything.

And yeah, your laser is bad, and since you cracked your case, you might not be able to get them to fix it for free.
