Hello. When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser and/or the spindle have blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first.
I hope this helps! Good luck to you.

Ps3 wont read disks


well the best way i know is to do the PS3 exchange program with Sony its only $150 to send yours in and get a refurbished one back, if you think about it the average blue ray drive will run you around $150 so you are better off in the long run to send the thing in for the exchange program...
hope this helps you a bit, oh and better stay away from FFA 08 thats what killed a friends PS3...

I have recently purchased a ps3, about 2/3 weeks ago, with it i brought call of duty 4. I brought the ps3 mainly for online gaming and cod4 works perfectly. I then purchased fifa 08 and tried to play...


The Fifa 08 game has problems if you are not using a "HD" output. So if you don't have a Hi-def TV then don't buy this game (It is why i didn't buy the PS3)! I am not sure about the other game.

ts a problem with the latest download update. sorry to say but its a job for sony as long as its still under warranty. just phone them up explain the probs your having and they will send you a new (normally reconditioned) unit out. sony's replacement service is very good.

The Playstation 3 will not read any discs i put in.


Any regular CD or DVD lens cleaning disc will work on the PS3. Try that solution. They're only $5 at an electronics store.
