This is a dirty or bad bluray drive which seems to be the same as the 3 rings of death for the 360..
Buy a cd laser cleaner and try that if it does not work your laser diode is bad and a new laser is 50$ via ebay.. if you dont want to get to technical then you can buy a drive for 120ish and switch them out.

Sony will charge 150$ + to fix it other then that there is no way around it.. and I believe you need a proof of purchase to get the warranty. I really hope the cd cleaner works but if not then your stuck...

You can sell it on ebay and if its a 60gb you can get about 200 for it... then buy a like new 40gb ps3 for 300ish I have seen just consoles sell at 290 incl shipping. Best of luck!

When i turn on my playstation3 it shows the ps3 logo when loading up but doesnt come up with the sign in menu or anything?


try restoring your ps3. turn the switch on teh back off then on. then put your finger on teh power button until you hear three beeps. ( not including the one you hear when pressin the power button.) right after the third beep let go and it will turn off. then try again. after the power beep listen for one beep then after that a double beep. it will show a menu of options. pick restore ps3 then quick format. *ALL YOUR DATA WILL BE DELETED BUT ITS THE ONLY OPTION!

Disc never loads


If a disk wont load that is due to one of two things, either the inside of the ps3 is dirty, or the disk is dirty or damaged..

First you could try purchasing a bottle of compressed air thats used to clean computers,

And then try spraying out the inside of the ps3 when the cd door is open.. Then purchase a lens cleaning disk, and run it a few times inside the ps3

If that doesnt work, try to get one of the scratch repair kist for cd disks, and try to clean and repair the game itself as best as possible.

Ps3 doesnt seem to be reading any ps3 game or dvd?? What can I do??


Ok remove any disc inside, unplug it completely and try to spray a can of air inside where you put the disc in. Then on top and the bottom of the unit there are vent holes for air, also spray air in there and behind it also. Then try using a brand new game because maybe you need to update you PS3 so it can read new discs. If that doesnt work let me know.

No disc playback


This has happened to me twice now but with another game. I recommend you call the Sony helpline, this way you can get professional help and they can replace your old console for no charge.

My ps3 won't load any disc


Try using other discs, like movies, blu-rays, or a dvd. If those don't work, there is a problem with your disc drive and it will need to be sent in for repairs.
