Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
My playstation 3, 40GB model, does not read the disks. I can play for about 5 minutes without it freezing, then when I restart it, it cant read the disk. after around 2 hours I can play for another 5 minutes!
It also gets really hot but the fan doesnt seem to go into overdrive to get rid of the heat. Im unsure whether the disk read error has something to do with the system overheating. The system only gets really hot when I play games on it, its ok when im playing demos or watching movies but once I place a disk inside it heats up.
I have also restored the system to get rid of any problem such as corrupt data, but this still hasn't solved the problem.
This problem has something to do with your PS3's lens. It may have gone bad too. This happened to me too and I brought my PS3 to sony. The culprit was bad lens.
I hope this helps. Have a nice day.
