First try going to the store and buying a cd lense cleaner.. it just may be dirty..
I have opened tons of ps3's and you would not believe the dust inside of them..
IF thats a no go
then
Call sony asap, they will fix it as long as the seal on the side is intact.. it costs 150-175$ but a drive on ebay costs 130 plus s/h.
Then you have to put it in yourself.
Sony will give you a 90 warrenty on the system they send you.. it may be more not sure.

Playstation3 problems


You need to first clean the drive with a dvd lens cleaner, it's relatively harmless your your disk drive, and make sure that the disc you are trying to read is clean, with no blemishes or smear marks. If these do not work for you, your drive needs to be replaced.

Playstation3 wont read a game what do i do?


This happened with my mates a few weeks ago, it was the blu-ray player drive that was broken and unfortunatly it was out of warrenty so he had to pay 100 quid! Check all discs, other games, dvds etc then if still not working its most probably that. Contact Sony!

My playstation will not read disc can you tell me


it may sound absurd but this could mainly be because of a fault with the hard disk... i had the same problem but realized the hard disk had become faulty probably due to overheating. what you will need to do is see if you can successfully format it and try runnning your disks again.. if they are still giving you problems you mah have to purchase a 3.5'' hard disk from any computer store(its quite cheap) then jus follow your manual as to how to replace it from the back of the ps3... and voila.. your ps3 will work as good as new

Ps3


sounds like a failed Blue ray drive or firmware failure. Update the firmware and if it dosent work, you will probably need to send it for repairs
