It is possible that the PS3's laser is wearing. Test the unit with a regular music CD, if it can read CD's fine then you know the laser is degrading.
This is fixable by adjusting the pointometer inside of the drive but would require an engineer or skill person to do so.
If a CD IS NOT working also, then there are many faults it could be (software, laser, motor). - And it would probably be cheaper to replace the PS3.

My psp down arrow button not working... how can i fix it?

The only way is to take it appart and realign the pieces. There isn't a whole lot to them but they have a bezel that is rubbery that pops in and out when the button above it is pushed. This contacts the board under it and sends the signal for the button you pushed. It seems as if the rubbery bezel part under the button is not popping back out so it won't allow you to register a button push. It's not too hard, just take your time, don't force anything, and be patient as these things fit together very tightly and can be broken if forced.

The console is not taking in the games when you try to put the game in... you kind of have to push it a bit i have tried a dvd also and its the same....nothing is registering

The problem is with the wires on the intake motor board. The wires connecting to the board are loose and need to be re-sodered, or are fried. But its inside the blu ray case. It's the gray battery looking thing with the corkscrew on it and the board that's attached to the triangle shape board.

How come my ps3 wont register my games but it will dvds

You may have a system that has a 'dual eye' laser installed into it. This means, one eye controls the CD/DVD and the other eye Blu Ray/Game. Your dvd's and cd's will probably play just fine but no games or blu rays.

This is the 2nd most common problem with PS3's. This isn't a bad problem. Your laser/lens will need to be replaced. There are many videos on youtube if you would like to do it yourself (I would advise you not to). I recommend that you find a technician who has experience. There are many things that can go wrong.

My wii is not taking the game

This is due to a read error in your console. The Wii's DVD drive laser needs to be repaired. You can call Nintendo's customer service @ (800) 255-3700 / ((Alternativly you can use My Nintendo Just sign up for an account. Register your Wii and use their support feature)). They will help you set up a repair ticket. They will send you a label that you will affix to a box and mail to Nintendo. They will repair it and mail it back to you. This usually takes about 5 days total. Most times it is free of charge. As long as your Wii is still under warranty.

I hope this helps. Take Care. =)

Touch screen not exact

My niece has that game and had the same problem with the walking thing. It turned out to be her game not the screen. Check the screen on a different game like mario or something that makes you do a screen check. Just make sure its not that game because we have gone through two of the dog games since Christmas. hope that helps.
