Question about Video Game Consoles & Games

1 Answer

My son has a playstation game that played great until yesterday. All of a sudden it started saying that it was reading the disc and then it would say no data. There is a couple small scratches but nothing major. He has other games that have alot of scratches and they play just fine. What could the problem be?

Hi,
The problem will be, the location of the Scratches.
If they,re towards the centre of the Disks.
The Table-Of-Contents will be damaged.
Take the disk, turn it upside down. And put in a CD Jewel Case. ( plastic case that Cds are stored In ) use a small amount of toothpaste, on a dry lint-free cloth. rubbing with slight to medium pressure. working from the centre of the disk outwards. this will polish the scratch out. then using a standard polish. polish buff the disk, to a shine.

If this solves your problem, please rate as Fixya.

Many thanks Mike @ Compurepair.

Make sure you are using the right disk. It must be Playstation 3 format software not a Xbox game. If you are still having difficulties playing the game you might need to send it in for repairs.

The play game icon not showing on his PSP


Is there a disc in the drive? If so, it sounds like your UMD drive (or disc) is damaged. Does it only happen with one game or with all your son's games?

there is a problem with the laser lens, it can be happen if the lens is unclean, e.g. dusty, try to Cleaning the laser lens, Using a Q tip with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, gently rub the laser lens, and then use the dry end to remove excess alcohol. don't forget the guide arms that may need re-greasing, as these parts can affect the operation of the console if they are dry.
