When putting disk in check by listening if you can hear the disk spinning at high speeds or a clickin noise, this means the laser is having trouble reading disk,try cleaning with a cd laser cleaner you can get these from comet argos pc world etc,if this does not work the laser may have burned out,one of the main faults with playstation and xbox is the fans that cool down the system also draw in dust through the vents wich inturn soil the laser lens hope this helps andy

My ps3 will not read any ps3 disk but it will read movies whats wrong?


I would see if it reads blueray MOVIES, if not it could be a problem with the blueray reader. In that case I would see if you can locate one of those cleaning discs with a brush on it to clean the laser or contact sony to see if your console is under warranty.

The system is no longer reading any disk. Has my driver gone out?


IIf the system will play regular cd's and regular movies(non blueray) the problem is the blueray portion of the laser assy. If it won't read anything, you probably have a bad laser assy all together. Either way, you will have to replace the whole laser carriage assy. I think they go for about $70 on ebay. Fairly technical fix if you want to do it yourself. If not, find a local PS3 repairman to perform the work. Good luck!

My playstation3 is nor reading game cd.it's


Well you seem to have the same problem i had, you updated your ps3 and now it wont read any blueray at all....

you probaly wont like what im about to say.....

but there is 2 options....

1. If you still have warrenty left on your machine, then use it now. (go down to the shop where you bought it and have it replaced or send to service.)

2. If no warrenty, well then you still have 2 options, but these cost money.

2.1. You can still send it to service at any store that sells ps3, but they will charge you a fee. (about 150$)

2.2. Or you can find a blueray lens and then replace it your self, its an easy task and can be done in about 1½ for one that never opened a ps3. you can find tutorials on youtube how to replace it.
( it does require that you know how to handle a screwdriver )

A new lens will fix this problem, i had it myself and just replaced my lens with a new, and now it works again.

My ps3 has a hard time reading ps3 games but doesnt have a problem reading anything else.


Have you tryed to play a BlueRay movie? PS3 games are stored on BlueRay so it might play DVD's and CD's, but the BlueRay's laser diode could be burning out.

Playstation 3 only reads playstation 2 games


this could be a problem with your blueray lens, the question you have given isnt really specific but, if it can play (ps2 games, cds or dvds) but not (blueray films or ps3 games) then it will be your blueray lens and will cost around £120 to repair from sony unless it is under warranty hope this helps..

Ps3 reads ps2 games and movies, but not ps1 or ps3 games


your blueray lens
the ps3 has 2 different lenses in the disk drive 1 is blueray and the other is just a basic dvd cd lens<
your blueray lens will have burned out if your still under warranty you should be fine to call sony and request a free repair if your not under warranty it will cost around £120

hope this helps
