Hi bought my son a pre-owned it home doesnt read the games,,,,it will play movies.... took it back to the shop they told me there is nothing wrong with it ,,,,what are we doing wrong :...

Hi EarthAngel,

Yes the disc reading problem on the PS3 is massive!

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


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!


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:

Hope this helps!

Still have not recieved reply in email to question" Microwave has no power but have power at outlet and fuse is good"

You will not receive a e-mail response since e-mail responses at this site are prohibited as is all personal contact between users outside of this site concerning business of the site. Please review the TERMS of use for particulars. Please don't get mad at me - this is not MY site nor am I an employee of the site - rather, I am one of the thousands of volunteers working from my home answering questions for you.

If you have power in the wall and the fuse inside is good and you have verified this with a volt meter, your oven has finished its work in this world. It is time for a replacement. Though everything is 'repairable', I don't think there is much more you as a household manager can do to repair this. I think this problem will require a professional to diagonose and repair. The cost may not be justified. With good microwave ovens available at the $500.00 price point ... a service call to your home may cost you $150.00 or more plus parts. If you do repair it of course your oven will provide more years of service, but the cost could exceed the price of a new oven with its improved operating and safety features. Of course you can inquire of a repair shop local to you what the estimated repair cost would be, either house call or shop bench repair.

You should get an extimate before you plunk your $ for a new one ..........

I hope my response helps you to make a decision in your case - thanks for using

Hi there,

You really need to obtain your engine fault codes - this will identify if there is an electrical issue.

If you would like instructions on how to extract diagnostic codes from your engine computer, post your email address.

Need urgent help : staring problem with my IBM T21

Are you saying that it takes pressing the power button a number of times before it will start up? If there are no LEDs on (other than the power LED on the external A/C power adaptor) until pressing the power on button finally works then I suspect your power switch is defective. The only way to fix that is disassembly and replacement. Replacing the switch isn?t too hard however unless you have the tools, time and some experience you might want to consider taking it down to the local repair shop. If you have any more questions let us know and please don?t forget to rate this posting.
