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.

Playstation 3 wont read disc can someone help it doesnt read disc at all we have cleaned the disc and nothing is working, someone said the bd drive could be bad if so how do we fix as this is out of...


This could be caused by 2 things

1) The laser is dirty,and needs to be cleaned or
2) more than likely the laser has failed and needs to be replaced

Other than that check the spindle motor by putting a cd in the slot and feel the shell for small vibrations,if you can feel it the spindle motor is fine

If this helps,please give me positive feedback

Sony Playstation 3 does not read dvd blurau nothing


Check for any scratches on the game disc. If that doesn't work then turn off the system completely with the main power switch located on the back of the console to restart the system and try again, If somehow that doesnt work call Sony technical support so they can try to solve the problem.

Playstation 3 wont read some cds or play downloaded demos.


I'm also having this problem as well, it has to do with the OS and it is corrupted. It seems like the "Game mode" has been corrupted preventing us from playing games on the hard drive or reading games.
