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.

Tip

PS3 Optical Drive Failure.


Have you had your Ps3 drive tell you its just will not read?

Here are some major causes:

1. Dirty drive.
2. Motor not spinning the disc fast enough.
3. Bad optical laser.

Step 1

Listen for the drive does it spin up?
Listen for the read head.
Put a audio disc in does it play?

If a audio disc plays but not dvd,blueray, or game disc you got a bad laser.

I recommend you do the following:

1. Make sure you match up you serial number on your unit.
2. Purchase the whole kit not just the laser.

The kit looks like this:


ae2a243.jpgThe cost of these drives are from $50 to $120 respectively. I do not suggest Ebay I would suggest a Store that sales these with warranty intact. Do not get fouled by ebay scams.

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)

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!
