My playstation 3 wont read my games

there's nothing more annoying than a broken video game console, but by paying attention to the symptoms, you can often temporarily or permanently fix a Playstation 3, or at least figure out
what symptoms mean and how they'll affect the repairs that you need. Here's a guide to dealing with a broken PS3 that won't read game discs properly.

1. Test other types of discs. Very commonly, you'll be able to use normal DVDs and CDs in the PS3. If this is the case, you can chalk up the failure up to the Blu-ray lens of the PS3, which is either dirty or broken. If no discs are working, the problem is actually likely to be more severe; still try the quick clean fix outlined below, but if you do end up needing to call in your warranty or contact a repair center, the extra information about what types of discs are working will help you get a speedy repair.

2. Attempt a quick fix. Get some compressed air from your local electronics store and spray it with short, controlled bursts into the opened disc tray of the Playstation 3, approximately towards the laser lens. This can clean the lens in some cases, and though it's a bit of a long shot, it's the most you can do without voiding your warranty. Carefully read the instructions on the compressed air, and don't hold it in one place for too long.

3. Call Sony for an RMA. If you still aren't getting any response, then the Blu-ray laser of the PS3 is broken and will need to be replaced. If your warranty's still valid, your best bet is to contact Sony and describe the issue--leave out anything that you did to try to fix the lens. The good news is that Sony's warranty system is one of the best, and you shouldn't have to go more than a week or two without your PS3 until the issue is fixed and your console is returned.

All lenses are the same regardless of the exact model playstation 3. Any playstation 3 blu-ray lens will work. You should be able to find replacements by googling for one.

I need to take apart my ps3 and clean the lens but i dnt no how

Try using a lens cleaner CD first. Most of the time a PS3 wont read BD because it's malfunctioned so you may have to send it in to Sony.

It is the blu ray drive..
Buy a cd lens cleaner and insert it and let it clean the lense..
if its not that then its the diode in the laser and a new one costs 45-50$ ebay. Or if you dont want to tear it apart a whole new drive is 125$
Send it to sony and they charge 150$ plus to fix it..
or sell it on ebay.. 60gb sell at about 200$ broken
