Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

1 Answer

Won't play games

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.

Hi,the disc in my play station 3 won t come out,it just keeps spinning when you push the exit button


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.

It's most likely dirty, though it could be failing. The lasers have an average life span of 3 years, under normal use.

Several companies make CD/DVD laser lens cleaners. You want the kind with optical quality brushes on the bottom side. You simply put it in, let is spin up and play, then take it out. It may not play the first couple times you put it in, but it will be cleaning the lens and pickups.

If that doesn't do it, I'd start looking at sales for a new player.

My play station doesn't recognize dvds or games I put them in and no icon comes on and it doesn't paly


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

The game starts but it cuts off and say wipe the disc and start the console over..The game disc is brand new but it wont start the game


Well it's a defiantly a hardware failure
90% of the time installing a new laser
will fix it . New laser are cheap 20.00
10% the one of the two motor will fail
so you'll have to buy a new drive and
swap the P.C. board form to old drive
to the new , both are relatively easy
procedures. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON REPAIR
GUIDES . all of the info you need is free on line.

I have Sony playstation 2, on connection to LCD it is asking insert play station format disc, what to do?


Seems that it is not recognizing the disc.

You have a few options:

1. Take it to someone to repair
2. Take the system apart yourself and try cleaning the laser
3. Try adjusting the POT on the laser (small screw on the laser that can be turned)
4. Replace the laser altogether.

CDJ 800 Bad Laser


Yes, sounds like you have a bad traverse assembly (laser). You can replace it yourself, however, I wouldn't suggest it, as you need to calibrate the assembly after the installation, and remove a solder bridge (which keeps the unit safe during transport). It is a little complicated, if you don't have experiencing doing this type of work. Taking it to a service center would be your best option.
