Game wont load on ps3

Hello. ive got a ps3 40gb from hong kong. Had it for 3 months now. Stopped loading games the other day. Everytime i insert a ps3 game or dvd, it goes straight to home menu that allows me to scroll around yet disk icon can be seen spinning in the top right hand corner but no disk to choose from in the menu. Ive even updated to the most recent firmware online but its not that. Menu seems to work fine and stuff but just not loading game which usually starts automatically. Ive read some articles online that theres the possibility of fryed lens, dirt on it or moved outer place. I can still ear disk spinning inside tho. What can I do to get the ps3 loading again or must i really have to send it back to hk? Is there some sort of reset switch I can flick inside the cd tray? thx in advance..

I had this same problem and the solution to mine was that my ps3 was in my garage and it was too cold in there for the system to operate so i moved it into the living room where it was warm and it eventually began to work

another solution is to just restore the system and then reinstall all of the updates

Game will not load when i put it in my ps3 sytem.


It needs a newlaser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

PS3 will load game but freezes during game. Tried Blue Ray disc as well and it froze also. Tried using a Game Doctor cleaning disk to clean the laser lense but that didn't work. Any suggestions?


It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

PS3 stopped loading discs


Cleaning the laser on the PS3 rarely, if ever helps.

It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could replace the laser or the entire Bluray drive.

I buy my parts at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com - the laser are about $75 each and Bluray drives are about $95.

Freezing and not reading


Sounds like your System has become corrupted.

Have you already tried the System Restore function?

My playstation 3 is not reading my games & blueray disc


It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

You could send it to Sony, but they take a long time to repair it and charge $150 USD plus shipping and handling.

You could also replace the laser yourself.
