Hi fisherkin834,

Yes the disc reading problem on the PS3 is massive!

Let me run through what is going on and how you can fix it:

Cause:

It is the laser that needs readjusting in order to fix this problem. The good news is that the drive will still work as long as you readjust the laser in most cases - so you don't need to replace the drive!

Solution:

You can send it in for Repair and they will fix it for you - although this will cost about $150 in a repair bill and you can expect to wait for about 4 weeks to get your console back.

Quicker Solution:

It is possible to fix the PS3 games reading error from home because as mentioned above all you are doing is readjusting the laser.

Now if you want to go down this route check out the reviews of the top guides and see what they offer first below:

Restored my ps3 system. Now the ps3 system does not reconize the hard disk. Also will say on reboot, cannot find the hard disk.

If the hard drive is not being detected ether you have lost the file table on the hard drive or the drive is having hard ware problems. The link below will take you through formatting the drive with a computer and seeing if the drive is having hardware problems.

My playstation all of a sudden will not play a game or dvd or music cd.it shows everything for internet usage but will not reconize a cd will not even show a disk this is for ps3


Hi,

This problem is usually associated with the Bluray drive or more specifically the optical laser on the drive which is failing to read the disk. Sony charge $150 for this repair if the console is outside warranty.

You could try cleaning the lens on the laser as this can work sometimes but this requires you to open the console and most often the lens is faulty and needs to be changed. For more information on the lens and how to access it either to change it or clean it please see this FixYa Tip.

Thanks for using FixYa
