Tip

PS3 Won't accept discs - Here is the fix!


This tip is for people who have already disassembled their Play Station 3 console and tried to replace the laser in the Blu ray optical drive.

If you replace the laser and then reassemble the Blu ray optical drive and the drive will no longer accept discs (like there is something blocking the disc) follow these steps to resolve.

(NOTE: if your PS3 is not accepting discs because the disc just won't push in, not like there is something solid blocking the drive, or your drive is making "grinding noises" refer to this tip: http://www.fixya.com/support/r4321102-bluray_drive_ps3_makes_grinding_noise )

Remove the metal casing of the Blu ray optical if you have not already done so. This requires removing the three black screws and the two silver screws on the bottom of the Blu ray optical drive.

With the metal casing removed, locate the 5 black screws on the top of the Blu ray optical drive to remove. There are two on either side and one at the back in the middle.

Keep the drive together for now (do not take the top off) and reattach to your Play Sation 3 console.

Turn on your PS3 and wait for it to power up.

Now, take the top of the Blu ray optical drive by “unfolding it” so the top of the drive rests on the PS3 power supply.

With the top off, hit the Eject button on the front of your PS3.

The drive gears should “pop” back into place.

Turn off your PS3 and reassemble the Blu ray drive. You should test your Blu ray drive first before reassembling the whole PS3.

I put in a blu ray disc but it is not playing in any media player and the disc drives do not recognise that a disc has been entered


Unless the drive in your laptop is a blu-ray drive, it won't recognize a blu-ray disc. A blu-ray drive can recognize and play a regular DVD, but it doesn't work the other way around.

If your computer is indeed fitted with a blu-ray drive, the laser lens may need cleaning. On a laptop, you usually have clear access to the lens with the tray open, so you can try cleaning it with a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaner. Or the disc itself may have a problem. Try another disc and see if the trouble continues.

If the computer doesn't have a blu-ray drive and you will frequently want to play blu-ray discs, get a USB external blu-ray drive. It's easier to find one of those than to locate a suitable blu-ray replacement drive for a laptop. There are many variations of drives used in laptops, but an external drive will always be compatible. And you'll be able to use it with other computers not blu-ray equipped.

My ps3 wont load any of my games but still plays my dvds


First off, have you tried playing Blu-Ray movies/games instead of DVD's?
If you have and only the DVD's work then it sounds like the "blu ray" part of the drive has died.

In the PS3 blu ray drive there is a lens for blu ray movies/games and a seperate one for dvd/cd's. Sounds like the blu ray lens one broke.
The cost for repair of this $150 dollars if not under warranty.
Now before calling sony try this.
  1. Update your firmware (if you aren't running the latest already). Yup, this overwrites some of system software that may have been corrupted.

  2. First, back up your game saves, and any music you have on your HDD. Format the PS3! Yup, again this fixes corrupted files on the HDD by forcing the PS3 to rewrite them.

  3. Buy a Blu-Ray cleaner and try it.

Sadly if these don't work, you will need to give Sony a call, and have that coffin mailed your way.

Dosn't always read disc's, games dvd's. and now has stopped reading compeatly


Hello,

The problem is that the lens/laser is weak and need to be replaced. Since it was reading disc and now it cannot read any disc anymore, that confirms the problem. To replace the laser/lens of the playstation 3. Please follow the steps below:
  1. Safely turn off the playstatiion 3,
  2. Disconnect it from the power outlet,
  3. Leave the unit to dissipate its high current in about 6 hours before starting to work on it,
  4. Open the top cover of the PS3.
  5. Pull out the power plug for the Blu-ray drive.
  6. Carefully pull up the Blu-ray drive and unclip the data cable ribbon from PS3 drive.
  7. Remove the two silver screws on top right and bottom right,
  8. Unscrew the 3 black screws to the left as well,
  9. Remove the top metal shielding of the Blu-ray drive, exposing the guts.
  10. Remove the top frame now that we are inside to reveal the laser (unscrew the screws)
  11. Once that is done you should be staring at the Blu-ray laser.
  12. Remove the Blu-ray lens screws,
  13. There are more screws to remove,
  14. There you go after removing all those screws the laser should easily come out, simply repeat the process for another working Blu-ray drive and extract its Blu-ray lens or just simply buy a replacement part (part #kem-400aaa) and insert it in the Blu-ray drive and start screwing it back on.
Hope this helped You. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

I cant insert a ps3 disc to my ps3 after it fell help!


Your blu ray drive is broken. You will need to replace it. You will need to find a local repair shop, the process should only take an hour or less. Don't worry, once the drive is repaired or replaced, you will be back to gaming in no time. If you are handy, purchase a drive (be sure to have the correct model number, located on the back of the unit) and install the new drive. Be sure to remove your blu ray drive's controller board and put it on the new drive once you receive it. There are many things that can go wrong so please do be careful.

No read blu ray disk


Look to see if your system came with a blu-ray dvd player. Cause according to the specs to your sysem it comes with a dvd+-rw drive which means it can play original dvds as well as movies on a dvd+r and dvd-r. Look for the blu-ray logo on the front of your drive. It should look like this:
http://www.pacificdisc.com/images/bd44.png

If it doesn't have that logo then that means your drive can't play blu-ray. If it does have the blu-ray logo and its not playing those discs then you need either a software program that will play blu-ray or your blu-ray dvd player has a weak laser and the drive would nee to be replaced.
