This usually means that the circuitry that detects the disk insertion event (it's a small optical sensor) or the drive mechanics that **** the disk in (a small motor in there) have stopped working. It typically requires a repair of the entire Blu-Ray drive (I just had one done and it cost $110 at a local shop.) You can check Craigslist in your area for shops that repair this issue...

Are you trying to put a Blu Ray disc in an Xbox 360? Blu Ray discs can only be played in a Blue Ray player or a PS3. Did you mean something else by Blue disk?

When i put the disk in it wont load so i can play it what is wrong you can hear it spining


The lens on the PS3 might have developed a fault which is preventing it from reading a disc. Try cleaning the lens with a dvd disc cleaner first.If you can hear is spinning then its most likely a lens fault.

PS3 Won't Take Disc!


Hi, I think it was me who had helped you before. I will be glad to help again. Ok, first you have to tear apart your PS3 (just like when you cleaned it). Now looking at the rollers and "dogs" make sure that they are closed and not open all the way like when a disc is in it. Look at the flap on the top too make sure it opens and closes freely. Next, PLEASE BE CAREFUL!! Plug your PS3 in and try to hit the eject button, if it is reset and ready for a disc it will beep twice when you hit the eject button without a disc in it. Place the top back on the he DVD drive and try to insert a disc. At this point it should take it. If not then try hitting the eject again. Once the PS3 resets and takes and ejects discs again, then you can put it back together.

I think you are right, try checking the laser that reads the discs see if it is clean, and yes that may mean taking it apart (No I don't know, because I don't have a PS3)
