Hi,

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.


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

Many thanks for using FixYa

I dropped my ps3 and now its sayin it cant find its hard disk. how do i fix this?


If under warranty, ship to Sony. If not, check to make sure the hard drive in secure in it's hatch. There is a decent chance that,
  1. The hard drive connection is loose
  2. The hard drive connection is broken
  3. Internal Wiring is broken.
If it is 2 or 3, then you'll need to get repairs or buy a new console.

PS3 Blueray drive,, Both blue and red LED's work, but it will not read a blueray disk, At first it spins fine and looks good,, but then the disk slows down and the eye jumps back down, at this piont it...


Hello,

If this solution am providing you now did not solve the problem, i will advice you format or get a new drive.

Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on with switch. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps. Your ps3 should automatically reset.

Take care.

My PS3 won't read/load disk. What do I do to fix


Hi,
This is a common problem on the ps3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.

However if this fails and 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.

Ps3 not reading any disks


Normally ps1-ps2-ps3 has Red laser beam lens system. So it cannot read Blue ray disks. its not possible until you change it lens system. there are some commericially available Blue laser lens system. Buy one and fix it with authorised service personnel. all the best
