    I used a laser lens cleaner and on the box it actually says that it can be used for ps3 and ps2 with other games. I put it in ps3 but nothing happend, so I am assuming that it could not read the disc. Is there something else that I can use?

    assuming that lens cleaner do not work, then the only option we have well those who own ps3 to keep it in a really clean place (undusty) and everytime you insert a cd make sure to clean it. if the cd is scratched avoid using it in ps3 it will definilty affect it.

Playstation 3 will not play games or read disc, what can i do?


Hello,

I will advice you clean the lens of your ps3 player, cleaning the lens of the ps3 player will make the ps3 player read the disc, if the problem is not solve after cleaning the lens, it means, you will need to replace the lens on your ps3, the lens might be weak that it can no longer read any disc or play any game. the two options above should fix the problem of your ps3.

Take care.

Not reading the disc when inserted. Any disc.


Hello,

The problem is that the lens of your ps3 is weak that it can no longer read any disc, i advice that you replace the lens on your ps3 so that your ps3 can continue to function as it use to function before.

Replace the lens on your ps3 and you will see that it will start reading the disc.

Take care.
