    My ps3 80gb stopped reading disc one day. i turned it on its side, up side down and back, then all of a sudden it read my game. The next day i turned it on and now it wont read anything. I tried the default reset, other games and still nothing. can i fix it myself? Is the laser dirty? I just bought it 03/03/08. Whats wrong with this thing? Can u help me????????

    you can try a cd cleaner which is a cd that cleans the inside it might be that or you can send it to sony for free with your warranty

Mine broke on the 18 of playing i quit the game and then went to change but nothing was loading as the ps3 beeped and as if it was going to automatically turn off it then turned off and i turned it back on. there was no disk in the drive apparently. ive heard talk of it being the laser but im no expert. the little loading bubble just keeps going and never stops i left the ps3 for awhile but nothing. i bought my ps3 last year so the warrently's probably gone is there any way that this isnt going to cost money to get fixed if so please help.

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. If you know how to do it yourself, you will need part KEM-400AAA / KES-400A if it is not spinning. If it's spinning and not reading the laser may be dusty or need replacement. The laser by it's self is part number is KES-400AAA. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.

I hope this helps! Good luck to you.

When i put in my game disc the ps3 takes the game in however the game does not load and also makes a click noise and then the eject noise but doesnt eject i cant play any game on my ps3 now, the home page...

Its possible that your disk drive is broken if your console is under warranty i recommend sending it in to Sony for repair, if not its your call if you want to send it in for a price, or see if you can fix it your self (which is beyond my knowledge and i DO NOT RECOMMEND)

Ps3 problem

try ejecting it by going to the game logo on xmb press triangle and hit eject from there .....if that dont work turn it off then while turning it back on hit the eject button while its booting up (that works for PC's)

Hold down the eject button on the PS3 for like 10 seconds, and it will force eject it.

Did you try to restore default settings under system settings

here are a few solutions from

if you still have problems ejecting the disk and your console is under warranty then contact sony for further advise on repair or replacement

I hope this helps

PS3 will not eject the disc nor acknowledge the game being in the console


Just try to wait for 30 - 50 sec.
If that does not work than EJECT THE DISC AND THAN TURN OF THE SYSTEM, It has nothing to do with your PS3, Check your connection status and reset all your internet settings BUT NOT THE SYSTEM ITSELF.

If this still doesnt work than there's something wrong with the disc.
