My ps3 is loading a disc but the game icon is not showing so i cant play it ...or any dvds


DEAR FRIEND,
  1. KINDLY GO TO YOUR GAME'S SYSTEM SETTINGS
  2. AND FORMAT THE GAME.
  3. IF THE GAME STILL HAS THAT FAULT.
  4. THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO CHECK THE LENS, IF IT ROLLS WELL
  5. IF TI DOES NOT ROLL WELL,YOU WILL HAVE TO REPLACE THE LENS.

My ps3 won't load any discs. when i insert a disc the disc icon doesn't even show up on the xmb bar.


well honestly I think your going to either get a new PS3 or buy a new disk reader because usually if the system cant even read the disc then the disc reader is busted and its pretty useless without it. hope I helped you out

PS3 wont read any games, dvds or cds


I have the same problem. My PS3 stopped reading any bluray discs. The spinning circle in the top right corner will come on for a few seconds when a disc is inserted, but then nothing. I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game. Although this is a workaround to prevent Sony from gouging you for $150+, this is still not a fix. A fix would be for Sony to admit they have a money making firmware problem and fix it. This fix will only work if you don't have an actual hardware failure (which I apparently don't). I think a class action lawsuit is in order for everyone that has this problem and especially for those who have shelled out the money to fix something that is firmware related. I'm sure Sony will only fix the firmware to make this workaround not work anymore so as not to lose their little cash flow scheme.

PS3 Home Menu


you can change the system settings to boot to disc when turned on. also if you don't see an icon for your game after you've inserted it, your laser may need to be cleaned or replaced.
