Take a can of compress air and blow air into the vents as well as the cd area... dust can build up on the laser eye. Also try the following... Try different types of disc... blu ray, dvd, etc... see if the problem is global or just one type of disc. if cleaning it doesn't work more then likely you will have to replace the blu ray player

Ps3 won't read game discs for a couple of times it doesn't even recognise a disc is inserted eventhough it may eject it and insert it again. i have reformatted but problem still exists. any ideas


hey there boppa252001

OK so you have the DISK READ ERROR

Not to worry this can be fixed, I will give you 2 options below for the best possible fixes.

Option 1 SONY

Call Sony they can have this fixed within 4-6 weeks for a cost of $150 but it is free if your still in warranty (12 months)

Option 2 YOU

You can repair this problem quite easily with the help of a great ps3 repair guide that many use to fix there PS3 problems themselves within hours rather than weeks.

You will soon be back up and running using any of the above options

I put a disc in my ps3 slimline. It makes a sound (like when a cassette player used to flip the tape over) then nothing. it doesnt recognise a disc has been inserted??? im happy to repair it i just need to...


The problem is probably with the laser that reads the disc. If you feel comfortable doing it, open up the PS3 and look at the laser. Try to readjust it and clean it, and if that doesn't work, I would not recommend trying to repair it yourself.

You can send the PS3 back to Sony, and they can fix it for you, either for free if you have a warranty, or relatively cheap if your warranty ran out (compared to buying a new one).

My PS3 is not reading or recognizing that there is a game disc inside. even when i eject and re insert the disc the console will not show that there is a disc inside. what can i do to fix this ?


Hello there,

The problem with your ps3 is that your lens is very weak and cannot read a game disc that is inserted into it.

To fix this, all you have to do is to replace the lens of your ps3 and it will work perfectly fine again.

Take care and goodluck

Not reading the disc when inserted. Any disc.


Hello,

The problem is that the lens of your ps3 is weak that it can no longer read any disc, i advice that you replace the lens on your ps3 so that your ps3 can continue to function as it use to function before.

Replace the lens on your ps3 and you will see that it will start reading the disc.

Take care.

Unable to read the disc


Hi,

The most common reason for the PS3 not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your games, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your PS3 including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your PS3 going again!
Hope this will help...

Take care.
