Ps3 won't take in disc

The discs won't go all the way into my PS3. It gets 90% of the way in and then won't go any farther. Needless to say it can't read the discs. Anyone seen anything like this before?

Sure have, the tray that takes the disc in is off track.I have had the issue with one of the ps3's that I had but I had to take it apart and reset the tracks.. Its a long process and could ruin your ps3. Call sony and see what they will do as its not a hard drive or an actual internal blu ray issue.. It might be 50$ to fix but its really worth it. If not I would be more then happy to walk you step by step to open and fix it... Or I would be more then happy to buy it and get you a great deal on a new ps3.. a 40gb 300$

Discs won t spin


If your discs wont spin, I would contact sony if your PS3 is still under warranty. If not than buy a new PS3 or start buying your games digitally to play them with no disc.

Ps2 Disc won't respond to a Ps3 when inserted.


Only the first version of the PS3 had PS2 backwards compatibility, They did make a special edition Metal Gear Solid version with it included but other than that no other PS3 will play PS2 discs... No matter what Add-On you install.

Disc stuck in console how to get it out?


I had this problem recently. I got mine out using a thin butter knife. The disc had some sticker residue on it that bonded to the drive when it got hot.
> Carefully ease a long knife (or something very thin) through the felt opening. Stay above the top of the disc (printed side). Then gently hold down on the disc while pressing the eject button.

I wouldn't recommended taking the PS3 apart. Not only will it void the warranty, but it is kinda tricky getting it back together. Besides, this won't really give you better access to the disc because the disc drive is an enclosed metal box.
If there is no (belt rubbing) sound when you press eject, the disc drive probably needs repair/replacement.

When on the Browser screen.....it blinks "Reading


Hi there,

What you need to do here is determine whether the problem is the disc itself or the PS3 drive. You can easily test to see if the problem is the disc by putting in another PS3 Game, Blu-Ray, or DVD. If it reads it, then the problem is the disc itself, not the PS3.

It could just be that the disc is a little dirty, or that a fingerprint is blocking the laser from reading the disc inside of the PS3. You can try cleaning it with a lightly-damped piece of toilet paper. You will also want to dry it off with a dry piece of toilet paper. If the PS3 still won`t read it, then the problem may be that it`s scratched. If this is the case, your best bet may be to go to Best Buy to purchase a kit that removes these kinds of scratches. Places like EB Games and Gamestop also have professional cleaners to clean these discs for a mere $5.00.
Now, if there are no discs that work inside your PS3, that indicates a problem with the laser inside the drive. There are means of cleaning the laser inside of the drive, but doing so will break the warranty seal. This means that your PS3 will no longer be covered under Sony warranty if it breaks down in the future.

If this is something you wish to pursue, then try following this YouTube video. If you have never opened up your PS3 before, you may benefit more from visuals than pre-written instructions. :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O-8NzYHr80

Ps3 not reading disc.. WTF


You need a new laser. Lasers are a lot like light bulbs and will eventually go out. Check out www.wiredextreme.com for replacement options. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty.

PS3 WON'T PLAY BLU-RAY DISCS


The problem is all in the settings. You probably have a 1080i television that cannot display in 1080p. To fix this go to the main menu and go to:

Settings:

Video Settings

Then Blu Ray Disc and make it turn the Display BD in 1080p 24hz or whatever. Once you do that, start the Blu Ray Disc again, and you should be able to watch it. This all happened because your tv doesn't display 1080p.

Hope this helps!

PS3 won't recognize any discs


I havent taken apart a PS3 yet..I've done Xbox 360 and that's SPOOKY but possible.
If you do get to the lens dont use alcohol. Use a decent lens cleaning fluid. I screwed up a lens with alcohol.
Also, if the laser pickup runs along a chrome rail or two, clean the rails with WD40 on a cotton swab.
90% of the one I fix have dirty lenses and dirty rails
