My ps3 console will not read my games or movies and try a disc cleaner & nothing


The problem is not normally with the discs itself but with the lens coming away from where it needs to be.
You just need to readjust the lens that sounds difficult but really it is not too tough.
Check out this PS3 Repair blog and get the fix you need.

My ps3 plays dvds but not games


Hi Kane,

The disc reading problem is quite a common one!

It is caused by the laser coming away from the drive and you need to readjust the laser to get it to work.

Sounds bad but at least the drive is not broken JUST the laser needs readjusting.
Now let us look at how you can fix this:

Solution 1:

The normal way to fix this is to send it in and they will do the work for you at the factory. However it will cost about $150 and also you will have to wait about 4 weeks.

If you do not play on your PS3 that much this may be the best solution for you.

Solution 2: For A Faster Fix

If you want the games reading problem fixed quickly then you should check out some good PS3 Repair guides.

They normally include videos showing you how to readjust the laser - it takes about 20 mins.

Make sure you check out the full reviews below so you can fix a good one!

PS3 not reading disc


This error is caused because of your PS3 lens. It's probably dirty because of a long period from dust build up. So to fix this problem, it's high likely that you need to open up your console and fix it from within, but how?

Well, in order to fix an error like this, you can do 2 things. You either send your console over to Sony, or you will actually fix the problem all by yourself. But, what's the best option to do?

A Couple Of Tips That Might Fix The PS3 Disk Read Error

1) Restart your PlayStation 3.
2) Check for loose cables.
3) Unplug all cables, and plug them all back in correctly.
4) Take out the hard drive, and put it back in correctly.

Didn't these tips fix the PS3 disk read error problem? If not, then you've got to consider to choose 1 of these 2 options.

PS3 Disk Read Error Fix By Sony, Do Or Don't?

This sounds like a pretty normal and good option right? But, you wanted a cheap, quick and an easy fix right? Well, then this option isn't your cup of tea. When you do this, you'll have to pay $150. But, this only needed if your warranty has been expired.

Also, you will have to wait for 4-8 weeks before you console will be fixed.

Fix Ps3 Disk Read Error All By Yourself With The Use Of A Repair Guide?

Actually, this is your best option that you've got. You see, when you do this the repair will be cheap, quick and as long as you use a repair guide, it will be pretty easy too! In fact, I highly recommend you to take a look at this video and also on precautions.





Leser Cleaning:
This laser is super sensitive. Do not touch it with your finger or anything that could potentially damage it or leave a mark.

1) Canned Air. Get a can with a mini straw and blow it out pretty good. If it's giving you problems, blow out the ventilation ports as well.

2) Disc Cleaner. Best buy makes a disc cleaner that looks like a DVD. This is not the best way to go but it might work. Ask an employee what they recommend using.

3) Q-tip. If you have already opened it; or are past warranty and desperate to get it cleaned, open up the console and with a Q-tip dipped in a very small amount of rubbing alcohol (make sure it's not wet, just damp) SUPER LIGHTLY give the laser one good rub.

Please make sure you're giving it a good means of ventilation and ensure to never put it on carp

PS3 is not reading discs


There is a common problem with the Blue-Ray players in the PS3. There is not anything that i know of that you can do other than have your PS3 worked on

**Warning** If you have the old 80 or 60 gig ps3 that you are able to play PS2 games on and you are trying to go through sony for repair they may just give you a new 80 gig ps3 in which you will not be able to play PS2 games on any more that feature has been taken away

your cs drive is probably dead(the laser module anyways) you will probably need to return the ps3 to sony and get a new one.
