SOURCE: ps3 doesnt read any disk

Mine did that as well. The problem was unfortunately severe. Once my system froze for an extended period of time and the lazer actually fried itself. I had to send it to sony to fix. If you are still covered by a warranty, it would be best to send it to the company. its hell though

SOURCE: my ps3 doesn't read any disk

It seems that the blu-ray drive broke down,
get a replacent for it or contact sony about it.

Use google to find a store that sells the drives,
because I only know a few good stores in the Netherlands.
Note that there are a few diferent models of the drive, you'll have to know first witch model you have an with model ps3 you have, see the bottom of the ps3.

This is an guide about how to replace the drive:

SOURCE: my ps3 wont read disks

There is a good chance this is a hardware problem you can't fix.

The first thing you should do is try cleaning the laser. There is a video of how to do it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-8NzYHr80

If that doesn't fix it, you are going to need to send it in to sony.

If your system doesn't recognize blue ray games or blue ray dvds but still plays normal dvds and music cds your lens is dirty. I had this problem and my factory and store warranty are up. I decided to take the machine apart and see what I could do.

If you look online there are several videos how to take the machine apart. I opened the machine up, took out the blue ray drive and opened up the drive. Once you remove the cover from the blue ray drive, take some rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip and clean the lens. I actually used my t-shirt to wipe it and blew on the lens and it did the trick. Before you assemble everything, plug the drive in and pop in a game to see if it works (or you will have to remove all the screws again.) This should solve your problem. If your drive doesn't recognize any media, your laser might be shot.

Once you tear into it and figure out how everything works you'll realize it's not very complicated. Otherwise you'll end up spending about 150 bucks for Sony to do the same thing.

Just updated ps3 and when tryin to play discs the symbol appears in the corner and then the disc doesnt play is there anyway to fix this


Hi,

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 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 one or both of these lasers.

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.

This is a very common problem with the PS3 and is 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.

This explains the problem you are having with different disks where some types are read and others are not.

My ps3 wont play blue ray discs or my games anymore


if your ps3 doesnt play ANY games or dvds, that may mean that the eye on the ps3(the thing that reads the disks and dvds) is malfunctioning, not moving efficiently enough to procces the disk, not recognizing the encrypted code on the disks, or the optical eye could even be scratched. the disk feed could also not be feeding the disk in far enough for the eye to read it. i would definitly suggest calling customer service and/or bringing the ps3 to an A+ certified technition to "diagnose" your problem.
