The most common reason for the games not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your game including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your game going again!

My playstation 3 does not recognize the PS3 disc's anymore but does still read the PS2 disc's. Is the Bluray going out? Can i buy just that part to fix it?


Hi,

The answer to your question is a definite Yes.


This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is most often caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 'see' or read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.


The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of the Bluray laser whilst the other laser is still functioning to read DVDs and PS2 discs.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Many thanks for using FixYa

Playstation 3 will not play games or read disc, what can i do?


Hello,

I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.

Take care.

Playstation 3 will not read disc , can i clean lens myself? not under warranty. just stopped reading the disc's


You can clean the lens but it almost never fixes the problem.

The problem is usually the blu-ray laser itself. It needs to be replaced.

Google "Five Most Common PS3 Problems" for answers and solutions.

PS3 NOT READING DISC


Certainlyit's a problem with your blu-ray reader and, if it's notcovered by warranty, unfortunatelly you will need to buy a new one (youcan find cheap ones in eBay =])
Please, try the following:
  • Reupdating your system firmware via USB Device (download the update from Playstation Website)
  • Restoring your system (don't forget to backup all your important files !!)
if this doesn't work ,contactSony support centre for possible hardware issues checking.

PS3 will not read any disc.


Hi

This is a common problem on the PS 3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service. However - if you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks
