Listen mate, i've got the same problem. checked it out and turns out thousands of people have the same problem. its something got to do with the laser. it just will stop reading your dvds or games out of no where. fortunately there is a number you can call (dont know it yet but will look into it) with sony and they'll ask for your serial number and in a couple of days someone will come to your place to pick it up and give you a new ps3. depending on how long you've had your console will determine with they give you a brand new one or used one. just go on the net and try to find some more info about it .

I have a ps3 that is an older model. i got it when they first came out. for some reason it will play dvds and cds but when i put a game in it freezes or just wont read it at all. please help


the laser is failing you can replace it easly what happens is that the player has to run harded to play blu-ray which sometimes it can stop reading cause random freezing and extreme cases stop working and break the console also eats disks and locks them in you can call customer support but they only help if you pay anyway your are going to end up paying for something if you can clean the lense or some ungodly way blow the dust out of the disk tray best of luck

My ps3 wont read disc and went it does the game wont load it will just say error has occured


Hi,

This is an extremely 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 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.

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.
