Hello..my ps3 (slim) console cant play the disc game because after i instert the disc few seconds later there's a sound (like when the disc start to eject) but the disc still inside and the icon for game not displayed. But no problem for the dvd video, so basically disc cannot read only for the game disc not dvd disc. What's wrong with my ps3?

Step 1: Does another game disc work?
Step 2: If so then the problem lies within that disc. If another game disc does not work check all your discs for scratches.
Step 3: if your discs are all Dirty/Scratched try cleaning them with a soft cloth or disc cleaner. Step 4: If none of these yield results try cleaning out the disc sensor inside the ps3.
Step 5: this can be done with a compressed dust cleaner (spray can) or a very SOFT brush. You do not want to damage the ps3. Step 6: This should yield results. If not then there is a hardware malfunction.

    All of my game disc not working also and every disc condition are ok (not scratched) the sound that after I turn on the console that worries me, this situation never happened before. But if I turn on ps3 not insert the disc game that annoying sound are gone. It was happen only if I insert game disc to the ps3 console (and the sound only happen once), Please advised..thanks

    Hmm that is definitely your cd tray/sensor. If it is still under warranty I advise getting it looked at. If not you could try very carefully taking the top off and seeing if everything looks alright. You could even try putting a disc in and seeing what the problem is. Use discretion if using that method though. Or just try to open it up and do the soft cloth method. Hope that works :)

1. First shut down the system by flipping the power switch in the back off.
2. Hold down the eject disc button.
3. While still holding down the eject button, flip the power switch to turn back on your PS3.
4. When the green light comes on, wait a few seconds then tap the eject button a couple times. The fan will run on full power and the disc will eject.

I cant turn my ps3 off


If you have the old non-slim PS3, press and HOLD the power button on the front-right of the console (near the disc drive). There is also a "main" switch on the back of the console to fully power it down.

If you have the slim PS3, press the power button on the front-right of the console.

You can also hold the PS button on your controller for a couple seconds to bring up some options, including turning off the system or controller.

The disc isn't spinning so the game isn't playing


Hello,

try different games or playing the game with the PSP in diferent positions, ex upside down, sideways...
and let me know if it works. If it does something is lose inside, if it does not the laser reader or LCD casing must be replaced.
