Samsung dvd player was working fine but now it won't load discs. What do I need to do?


If it will not accept or physically load a disc it is a mechanism problem in the unit and someone needs to open the unit to see that nothing is inside blocking the mechanism.

A lot of the players if not expensive units are cheaper to replace than repair.

Tip

PS3 Won't accept discs - Here is the fix!


This tip is for people who have already disassembled their Play Station 3 console and tried to replace the laser in the Blu ray optical drive.

If you replace the laser and then reassemble the Blu ray optical drive and the drive will no longer accept discs (like there is something blocking the disc) follow these steps to resolve.

(NOTE: if your PS3 is not accepting discs because the disc just won't push in, not like there is something solid blocking the drive, or your drive is making "grinding noises" refer to this tip: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4321102-bluray_drive_ps3_makes_grinding_noise )

Remove the metal casing of the Blu ray optical if you have not already done so. This requires removing the three black screws and the two silver screws on the bottom of the Blu ray optical drive.

With the metal casing removed, locate the 5 black screws on the top of the Blu ray optical drive to remove. There are two on either side and one at the back in the middle.

Keep the drive together for now (do not take the top off) and reattach to your Play Sation 3 console.

Turn on your PS3 and wait for it to power up.

Now, take the top of the Blu ray optical drive by “unfolding it” so the top of the drive rests on the PS3 power supply.

With the top off, hit the Eject button on the front of your PS3.

The drive gears should “pop” back into place.

Turn off your PS3 and reassemble the Blu ray drive. You should test your Blu ray drive first before reassembling the whole PS3.

PS3 won't accept certain disks. A few disks i have won't play in my ps3. it happens to both blu-ray movies and games, and it seems to only happen with blu ray disks. i'll put the disk in, and...


Hello
The noise is actually a product of dust from a blue ray disc.Over time these discs heat up and leave a residue on the blue ray lens.
Try using a lens cleaner to remove dirt and clean lens.
Also i read an article that using a wireless controler can also cause freezing of the blue ray.

When on the Browser screen.....it blinks "Reading


Hi there,

What you need to do here is determine whether the problem is the disc itself or the PS3 drive. You can easily test to see if the problem is the disc by putting in another PS3 Game, Blu-Ray, or DVD. If it reads it, then the problem is the disc itself, not the PS3.

It could just be that the disc is a little dirty, or that a fingerprint is blocking the laser from reading the disc inside of the PS3. You can try cleaning it with a lightly-damped piece of toilet paper. You will also want to dry it off with a dry piece of toilet paper. If the PS3 still won`t read it, then the problem may be that it`s scratched. If this is the case, your best bet may be to go to Best Buy to purchase a kit that removes these kinds of scratches. Places like EB Games and Gamestop also have professional cleaners to clean these discs for a mere $5.00.
Now, if there are no discs that work inside your PS3, that indicates a problem with the laser inside the drive. There are means of cleaning the laser inside of the drive, but doing so will break the warranty seal. This means that your PS3 will no longer be covered under Sony warranty if it breaks down in the future.

If this is something you wish to pursue, then try following this YouTube video. If you have never opened up your PS3 before, you may benefit more from visuals than pre-written instructions. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-8NzYHr80

The discs won't get go into the playstation3


If your ps3 disc drive still makes sound maybe the top lid of the disc drive is not in the correct spot. Have you opened it before? Thats how the disc drive will get out of line. If you havent opened it before it might just need a good cleaning and lubricated. How to fix it if its out of line is to take ps3 lid off take disc drive lid off hook it up and place a cd in it and let the drive accept the disc then put everything back together with the disc in the disc drive. Now it should work right.

80 GB PS3 doesn't accept or reject Disc


It sounds like the optic sensor went bad. If this goes bad it wont be able to tell if a disc is loaded or not. So it can't accept or reject them.
