    I put a game in and wait for it to start, but it won't. My PS3 will read but no message comes up. It just keeps reading and thats it. I bought my PS3 from a buddy, so I don't have the warranty papers. I live in Austin and looking for a reasonably priced repair shop. Any answers or spots I can take my console to?

SOURCE: game wont play keeps saying

hello If this agame that you've been able to play before and now are having a problem with, one solution might be that the reader or your console could be dirty. You could try one of those drive cleaners that look like a regular dvd.These can be bought almost anywhere they sell video products. Another option might be to try cleaning it with a can of compressed air. Try blowing out the drive. If its only happening with this game, you might have a software issue. In which case your going to need to update your system

try restoring your ps3. My ps3 wouldn't read disc, but since I restored it it's now reading discs. Go to system settings on you're home screen. Then go to restore ps3 system & then go to full restore. It will take 3 & 1/2 hours but it could fix you're problem.

When disc inserted says disc error on screen


HI,
Try a laser cleaning disk, you may have debris on the laser head itself.
Also try different disk formats, such as Games-Music-DVD And bluray.
Find out if it,s reading anything At All.
