Hello marcs442!

The PS3 has a common problem with the disc drive. It may have been no fault of your own, but the drive itself may have stopped working. In most areas, local PC shops offer a quick and reasonably priced solution. Most of the time, the disc drive just has to be replaced, which is less expensive than buying a whole new system!

Please remember to rate if this was helpful!

Why would my console all of a sudden stop recognizing game discs?


Hi Murray

Had the same prob with my sons PS3. Turned out to be the laser. Bought a new one on Ebay for under 20 quid. Sorted. Can't say for sure this would fix your x box though.

My son put a penny in my ps3 disk slot and now it won't play any disc what should I do!


If you know somebody who is good at taking things apart and is familiar with this type of unit that would be the least costly. The second option is take it to a technician that can work on gaming devices.

Your PlayStation 3 most likely needs a new laser. Over time dust can collect in and around the console and can cause the laser to become dirty and scratched. Contact Sony to see if your unit is still under warranty.

If your unit is not under warranty, then go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a video game console repair company and we can get you back up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers everything on the console, not just what we repaired. If you have any other questions or concerns feel free to email us at support@wiredextreme.com or call toll free at 888-389-3038.

PS3 not reading discs.


Hey man, you can try this....

1. download and install a psn game or game demo
2. put in the disc of the game or video you want to play or watch
3. load the psn game or demo as if you were going to play it
4. quit the demo as soon as you get to the start menu of it
5. go and play or watch the game or video you wanted to, sucka, cause it works now!!!

I hope this works for you, and if it does, spread the word!

Unreadable disk


Have you tried ejecting the disc but not quitting out the game, wiping the disc and then putting it back in, it should say something like please insert disc, it may work, it does on the ps3
