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 I WOULD 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.

Grand Theft Auto game freezes


Playstation 3 has a big problem after you been playing games on it for a while, it just stop reading the ps3 disk. My solution was to replace the blue ray drive or send it back to sony if you have a warranty. If not these steps can help you replace or clean the drive lens. If it is to technical for you just take it to your nearest sony service store.

I can't play Grand Theft Auto 4


Maybe it is because the parent control is on, and has been set so you can't play "M" rated games.

The disk is mostlikely scratched, if so get it resurfaced at a music store, or buy one.

Weird lines and shapes when playing Grand theft auto 4


I have the basic 360 that came with nothing. Um this actually did happen with me a few times when I first bought the game. Exept my problem was a little different. 30 or so minutes into playing the game it would come over the side the game was unreadable or dirty. I had just bought the thing from wal-mart so I knew it was neighter. I just went out and bought one from game stop. Game stop seems like the best place to buy games anymore.
