Cant play games or moves on my ps3


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

How long have you been using this PS3 Game? I think the laser of the PS3 is weak that is why it will not read discs. The laser must be dirty and either needs to be cleaned or replaced.

If you need any more assistance, please let me know.

I hope the above is clear.

Good luck.

My PS3 wont redcognize discs i put in a disc and it will not do anything it used to read ps2 ps3 and bluray discs but it wont read anything and ive never used it online


The laser in the drive is probably going bad. Use a can of air and blow some into the drive so that way your making sure no specs of dust or dirt are on the laser. If after you do that it still won't play any discs, then you know the laser is bad so you can either replace the laser or replace the whole drive which is easier to do.

My ps3 wont read discs


It rarely actually helps to clean the laser for the PS3. It needs a new laser because the old one is "burnt out". It's a really common problem with them.

I buy mine at http://parts.consolerepairguy.com they run about $75 each.

I run a repair business and that place has best prices aside from Hong Kong which I don't trust.

My ps3 will not read any discs i put in it. ive left it alone for a long time because i thought it was over heated but i triy it almost every day and it wont work wat shall i do ?


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.

See an example below.

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

PS3 won't read disks


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)

PS3


Contact sony and ask if they will replace it for free if not buy a new blu ray player via ebay 100-130$ and stick a new one in it...

But I would try going to get a laser cleaner disc from the store and see if its just dirty.. I opened a unit and my lord was it dirty!

PS3 freeze ups


If game freeze the reason is not complicate to explain.
Unable to read media and this mean the laser is skipping some step during the reading process.This can be caused by a scratched disk or a dirty laser or both.The ps3 laser have basically 2 laser Diode.One is red and one is Blue.Some time if a diode died you can see the machine reading ps2 game but no ps3 and blu ray.If the red diode die you are able to read blu ray but no ps2.I suggest to clean your laser first and if this will not work replasce your laser
