Are you living in an area where there is a lot of dust? The laser lens could be just dirty inside the drive. You'll have to access the DVD drive to clean the lens.

My PS3 is playing some games but not all. It loaded the game and said installing hit the play button and said it cant recognize the game


Is the game that you are trying to play on a burnt or home made disk? If so, that may be your problem. If it is a regular store bought disk and it can't recognize the game then its a different situation and I would suggest purchasing a disk cleaner instead. There is probably dirt on sensor that needs to be cleaned.

Bought a new ps3 game will not load all the way


To make this whole process easier you should try to find another Playstation 3 and see if the disk works on that console, otherwise return to the store which you bought it (with receipt), explain the situation and you will receive a new copy for no extra charge, sometimes dodgy disks are burned and it seems you just got a hold of one.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: disks are not reading. The ps3 is working fine oth...


Hi,

This is quite a 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 'see' or 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 quite 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.

Many thanks for using FixYa

Not recognizing the game


the laser lens that reads the disk is dirty, buy a dvd that comes with a little bottle of solution, this will clean the internal lens, other 2 possible reasons, the dvd disks/games are dirty or too many stratches, and or the dvd disk/game is damaged, you can buy a scratch remover kit from any local store.These are the simple most common problems seen with video games and dvd players.

I need a new cod 4 disk. can i trade it in? its scratched


How bad is the scratch. You may be able to take it to a movie stop or some other movie store that buffs diiscs. Call a few stores until you find one. I have done this and it works on some discs but not the really bad ones. Just call them up and ask them if they offer buffing services for movie or game discs. If they say yes, then go do it. Its usually only 2-3 dollars and if you do 3 or 5 then they will usually do 3 for 5 dollars or something like that
