Ive been told the motherboard has gone on the ps3. The only problem with the machine is that it wont accept discs anymore. It shows the loading up sign then nothing more happens.


Hi there, this is not a motherboard issue, this is a blu ray lens issue. When they become faulty they refuse to read discs hence the loading sign and nothing happening. It is attempting to read the disc but cannot. You can purchase blu ray drives for around £60 off of ebay or you could buy a faulty PS3 that the blu ray drive is good on and use that, usually they sell for around £50.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My ps3 wont load disk


If it will load dvds but not games then the blu-ray laser is bad.
If it cannot read anything then the drive is bad and needs to be replaced.
You can buy replacement parts on ebay, but they are a bit pricey.

The ps3 wont play any games or load up anything else either. It goes to a pink screen with a wavy line in the middle and thats it. Also the controlers wont connect to the system, if you turn them on they...


But you are unable to play your discs because the Blu-Ray Lens that enables the PS3 to read Blu-Ray movies or games has gone bad.

There is nothing you can do about it. You need to take it to an authorized Sony Service Center and get the lens replaced.

My ps3 will only load cd & dvd it wont load games


It's a Sony defect with the blu-ray lasers. They only last 1-3 years with average use. If your PS3 is less than a year old and you still have the original receipt Sony will repair the problem for free. Otherwise they're going to charge you $150 for the repair. You can reach them at: 1-800-345-SONY

Unless you have a technical background in electronics there's nothing I would suggest doing. A firmware update and or CD /DVD cleaner disk will do nothing for your problem. I've fixed more than 100 PS3's with this exact problem so I know exactly what I'm talking about.


If you're just out of warranty by a few days sometimes Sony will do a courtesy repair. It doesn't hurt to ask.

Ps3 wont read any disk


If you can't hear the disc spin it means that the lens is gone.
Purchase a mechanism KES-400 AAA and replace it (if you do not have warranty).
If the disc spins and does not load it might be the blu ray board. I have one with the same issue and I don't know how to pair a new board with the existing motherboard.

Problem loading any game, dvd


Sounds like a faulty/dirty/bad laser. Call sony 1-800-345-SONY (7669)
ask them what they can do! Normally its at least 168$ charge to get your ps3 back in order unless you are willing to open it up yourself.. if so let me know I can help you find parts and help you fix it.. parts are not to expensive but in the long run it may be better to either sell it as broke or send it in!
Either way you need new parts to fix it so its up to you there is not a solution that is free on this fix!
I do buy broken ps3's and can get you a deal on used or new systems!
