Msot likly you have a blue ray drive that have stopped working. most of the time its the laser that has burnt out on you. but to be on the safe side just replace the drive itself, you will have to switch the controler board from the old one to a new one since they are all paired together when they are made... start searchign ebay for a new drive.

When i put any kind of disk in my ps3 it tries to read the disk,but it just starts spining and stoping spining stoping ect...


Hi brady,

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:

Hope this helps!

My ps3 stoped reading any cd's or movies and i tryed to restart da ps3 and even format still didnt help.


Hi,

This problem on the PS3 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

My PS3 won't read/load disk. What do I do to fix


Hi,
This is a common problem on the ps3 unfortunately and is caused by a faulty blue-ray drive. Unit will have to go back to Sony for service.

You should try a DVD cleaning disk first to be sure that dirt on the laser lense is not causing the issue.

However if this fails and you are confident with electronics there are several videos on YouTube showing how to replace the drive if you choose to order it and do it yourself.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many Thanks.

PS3 BLUERAY STOPED READING DISK AFTE 2.60 FIRM WARE IT JUST KEEP


  • Like the 360, the PS3 also has problems.  This problem is known as the SoD (spin of death). In this the lens of your PS3 stops working. Sony is the best one that can help for this kind of error. Best to stick with them, or if your retailer has an exchange policy, ask for a new PS3. But my local dealer fixes this up for 125$.  but as you're saying sony wil fix it up for $150. There is very little choice you have. all you can do is save 25$ and give it to ypour local dealer. best of luck.
