My husband dropped his playstation and it will not read any disk. It will turn on just fine. The only thing on the tv is the memory card. I hear it spinning but does not the disk. Now I have never took apart a playstation or anything. Does anyone know what's wronge and if it is still savagable? Thanks.

Did you ever drop it?
Usually if a PSP will not read UMD's, either the laser is dirty or it has been moved. If you dropped it, the laser has probably been moved. You'd have to take the whole entire thing apart to move the laser back, assuming you knew the position it should be in in the first place.
Even if you have dropped it, the first thing I would do is to pick up a UMD drive cleaning kit for around $10 and try that. If that does not work, I would suggest sending it to be repaired.
I hope this helps!
what probably happened is when you dropped it which why was it dropped in the first place. the track that ejects the disk was probably knocked out of place resulting in the problem with the ejecting of the disk. the only thing that i can possibly think of is to check for screws and open up your ps3 then check the disk ejection system and see what was jumbled around. hope this helps dude.
Try holding down the play or fast forward button while the disk is loading or drop it onto a carpet from a height of 1-1.2 feet. worked for my sony playstation 2...or shake it violently while on but with no disk inside ...... Hope this helps!
hi it sounds like you need to replace the laser ? like most things they hate to be droped ? but try this first push the laser back gently with a cotton bud and see if it works if not then laser needs replacing ?
Usually when a tv is dropped the phospher screen inside the picture tube will detatch making the rainbow color This cannot be fixed as it requires changing the picture tube. Only other thing is demagnatize it with a demagnitizing coil (used by tv techs) but not likely to fix it since it was dropped. You have a bad picture tube.
