There is but it will not help. This is a VERY common problem and Sony is replacing peoples systems. It needs a new Blu-Ray diode. If it's still in warranty, have it replaced by Sony (they pay for all shipping). If it's out of warranty, you can sell it for parts or fix it yourself. It's a tedious task and you could easily damage other parts. But it can be done.Hope this helps!

My 60gb ps3 can play regular dvds and ps2 games but not any blue ray related games or movies. The blue ray movies or games will either play for a little then freeze not read the disc at all or give me an...


Okay, this is a REALLY common problem. It's more likely than not that dust is on your lens. Best bet is to buy a Laser Eye Cleaner disc and hope that fixes the problem. If not than you will have to contact sony. If your still under warranty they will fix it for free. if the warranty has expired, then they will charge you a repair fee

My consoles cannot run the game disc


Most likely you need a new eye.My ps3 wasn't reading neither.At first it was reading everything but blu-ray.Then it wasn't reading anything.Little circle in corner be spinning and everything.I cleaned my eye I used cd cleaner didn't work.My system is out of warranty so had to get it fixed on own.So i opened it got a q-tip wiped it off with alcohol switched ends.With dry tip and dried the eye off.That will help you if your ps3 reads everything but blu-ray.But all it was really doing is telling me my eye was dying.Suddenly it read nothing so I invested in a new eye.Put it in myself now she's running like a champ.Hope this help but if your system still play dvd movies and ps2 games.Your blu-ray is acting up go by my steps first.Before destroying your ps3 or buying another might be a 50 dollar problem.Compared to sony 160 to send you another used 1.

PS3 is not reading discs


There is a common problem with the Blue-Ray players in the PS3. There is not anything that i know of that you can do other than have your PS3 worked on

**Warning** If you have the old 80 or 60 gig ps3 that you are able to play PS2 games on and you are trying to go through sony for repair they may just give you a new 80 gig ps3 in which you will not be able to play PS2 games on any more that feature has been taken away

Disc read error


You will ne4ed to clean up the PS2. open it up and clean the laser lens with alcohol on a cotton swab. If it is the Slim Ps2 model you should not use Alcohol. Use A glass Cleaner like windex on the slim. Sometimes the magnet gets week and you need to add some magnetism to help improve the spindle grip on the Game disc. Cut up a refridgerator magnet and place it in the white cap thatt clamps the Game disc in the cd player.
