Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

My 2 year old, maybe used 8 times play station when tying to load a game or blue ray in it will not **** the dvd all the way in, thus it does not work. Is there a reset I can do? I can`t believe with the lack of use of this unit that it can be broken?

There's no magic button fix. You'll have to take the unit apart. This will void the warranty if it's still under warranty!

Here's a video, once you get it apart search for another takeapart video for the disc drive itself, it's really straight forward but if you wanna know what to expect watch videos ;)

Oh and you'll "need" a special torx screwdriver to open the top case of the ps3 but if you are slick you can just jam a regular flat head into the screw and carefully unscrew it.

When trying to play a DVD, we insert the disc and it says loading. Then it tells us that it is the wronge type of disc.


your disk and player must be compatable, you cant play dvd's in a blue ray player, you cant use blue rays in a dvd player, you cant use ps4 games in an xbox and you cant put cd's in a record player... hope that helps!

Year old S350 plays normal DVDs happily but (recently) wont load up Blu Ray disks. Grinds away loading and eventually says disc not recognised.


Hi:
This is due to a faulty optics lens or mech assembly, the laser used for normal DVS's are red but when Blue ray is inserted the laster uses blue light or blue laser, you may have a defective laser.

My PS3 now will not play PS3 games but still plays PS2 games


You're blu-ray drive has partially died. It's a three part laser (cd, dvd, blu-ray). The most important part of yours has died that's why you can still play dvd and PS2 games because they use the dvd laser and not the blu-ray.

I have issues with the station loading Blue ray and most of my games..I noticed this after playing Fallout 3 and started having freezing issues and other issues while playing this game...


I read about trying a can of air to clean the station, and I also removed alot of trailers and demos that I don't use any more and 20 min later and a couple of different games, so far so good.
Thanx..
