This is a common problem so it should be a quick fix. But, depending on how many repairs the shop you are sending it to has will ultimately decide how long it will be there. Sorry to say but you may be looking at 4-6 weeks.

PS3 WONT PLAY ANYTHING - DISCS NOT RECOGNISED


i have had similar problems as well as multiple friends of mine. to solve this, you must call the playstation company and send your system in to be serviced. if you have purchased it within the last year and have proof, sony will fix it for free. if not, they will charge you $150 for their services. this is the only way to fix the problem

Read disc error


Same problem here, your only option is to send it in to sony.  I'm about to click submit with my card information to pay the fee.  Mine reads everything but blu ray games and movies.  If yours is over a year old it's probably out of warranty like mine unless you bought the extended warranty.  For you crlnmcgrth, i would check and see if you can find out when you bought yours exactly.  If you are still under warranty sony will fix it for free or send you another system identical to yours for free.  Call 1-800-345-sony.  They open at 9 am est or 6 pst. Hope this helps.

Sony ps3 system froze up, when we shut it down and turned it back on it won't play any discs. You can play downloaded games but wont read anything.


You will have to call sony and get what is called a coffin and send it in for repairs. If it is under warranty you will just pay for shipping. More than likely your blue ray driver needs replaced.

Disc read error


Hey, i bought a ps3 almost 2 years ago now, its been more reliable for me than my old ps2. i would try and phone them again if you aint recieved the case soon,
it does sometimes take a while for them to repair it and send it back ie if its the same console, they might just swap it for another ie once u get it sent away :-).
sounds like a problem with the laser, im sure you will see the case soon, and touch wood have no problems with the replacement ps3.

Return under warranty, ps3 uses a high powered blu ray laser that can melt the lens after extensive use, sony is working on a fix and will repair this for you for free unless you have opened the case.

Is your console still under warranty? If so, then send it in to Sony for repair.
