This is unfortunately due to the Blu Ray lens developing a fault within the disk drive or becoming dirty. Usually it will still play DVD's but not Blu Ray discs or games. You could try a laser lens cleaning disc but 9 times out of 10 this doesnt usually work. I am guessing this is the new PS3 slim model you have trouble with, which I am pretty sure are still under a year old from launch date. In which case I would give Sony a ring as this should still be under warranty. They should offer you a replacement free of charge.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

I bought god of war 3 for my ps3 and when i insert it it sounds like its gonna read and then it makes a clank noise and nothing happens but it reads all other games but this one


It sounds like the disc is broken. Blu-ray disks are scratch resistant, but if they have even the tiniest of cracks or dings, the disc is often unplayable. It is usually characterized by the weird sounds you're hearing when you try to load the game.

Take the disc into bright light and check the underside very carefully, looking for any sign of a hairline crack. Even if you can't find a crack, my suggestion is to return it for a different disc, as it seems probable that the game is broken.

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.

you can try to clean the laser and see if you are lucky enough to have that fix it. but usually it means your laser is shot and needs replaced. the laser is pretty pricey but it is pretty simple to replace.

Unit cannot read the DVD-ROM


First, reset the system. Hold down the power button (blue/green) on the front of the console for about 10 secs, until it beeps. This will reset your system, keeping all previous settings in tact.

If this does not work, be sure to test the drive with a BlueRay movie, listen to the drive when inserting a disk to hear if it spins up initially. If you have a downloaded game or demo, does it work. The more information you can bring to a problem the greater the chance to getting a fix.
