When i turn my playstation on it doesn't read the disc.


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.

Wont read ne of my discs how much 4 repair an how long...


Your player is not reading as there is no laser scanning and the possibility that the laser head can be defective.
Now certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it is not read. Hence it will reject. So it is ideal to clean manually the laser head eye using a cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
The cost of the optical head or the possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board might need an estimation, with respect to a new unit.

My ps3 only plays ps2 games, some music cds and no movies what causes this problem?


The unit more than likely needs a new laser. Some units have 2 laser eyes. One for the blue ray / PS3 games and one for the audio / standard games. Sometimes the laser can become dirty and can be cleaned with a cd cleaner (never had much luck), or by disassembling the unit and cleaning the laser eye with a q-tip and alcohol. New lasers can be purchased off of ebay or through several online stores, but make sure you know which model laser you need as there are more than one.

My ps3 does not acknowledge any disks


Either the laser glass eye is dirty and needs to be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab, or the laser lens circuit is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Ps3 80g won't load any disc


Try cleaning the glass laser eye in the machine with rubbing alcohol and cotton swab. This will clean the lens.
If the machine acts the same way, it is most likely due to bad motor or off timing of they laser circuit.

Wont play playstation 2 games


This can occur if the Playstation has been knocked or dropped. On the slim version if you remove the screws underneath and remove the top cover you may find the the small drive shaft has been dislodged from the motor. Push it back into place refit cover and screws. This fixed my PS2 with this fault.
