Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My play station takes the disc, but the turntable doesn't start spinning and the laser does seem to hunt for info. This was an intermittent problem. Now, the disc motor won't turn on.
We had a similar problem with our PS3. Called Sony tech support and they walked us through several troubleshooting steps, but couldn't get it to read a disc.
Go to the Playstation Forum: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/
In the "Search" box, type "will not read disc" and you'll find others with similar problems.
If your PS3 is under warranty, they'll likely have you ship the old one back and they'll replace it. Unfortunately, that means you'll be without a PS3 for 3-4 weeks. Good luck.

If you have this problem it is because the laser has shifted
from where it needs to be and the good news is that it is not that hard to fix
all you need is a good repair guide.
You can of course send it in but the disc reading issue you
should be able to fix in less than 1 hour from home.

First of all the new laser lens will not allow your Slim to read NTSC UC games if you have a PAL european Console.
There is no reason the New laser should have not read the disc unless it Came to you damaged. It sounds like you know how to replace a laser.
