Re: disc read error
Hey, i bought a ps3 almost 2 years ago now, its been more reliable for me than my old ps2. i would try and phone them again if you aint recieved the case soon,
it does sometimes take a while for them to repair it and send it back ie if its the same console, they might just swap it for another ie once u get it sent away :-).
sounds like a problem with the laser, im sure you will see the case soon, and touch wood have no problems with the replacement ps3.

PS3 is one of the most amazing gaming device but like other. competitorgaming devices (Xbox and Wii) It also has some problems like Freezingup. You may check out the informative Article at ezinearticles Remedy for PS3 Freezing up.
Same problem here, your only option is to send it in to sony. I'm about to click submit with my card information to pay the fee. Mine reads everything but blu ray games and movies. If yours is over a year old it's probably out of warranty like mine unless you bought the extended warranty. For you crlnmcgrth, i would check and see if you can find out when you bought yours exactly. If you are still under warranty sony will fix it for free or send you another system identical to yours for free. Call 1-800-345-sony. They open at 9 am est or 6 pst. Hope this helps.
You are covered by a 12 month warranty from Sony it sounds like the laser is not reading the discs but check to see if the auto start feature is turned on in the settings menu as then the game will automatically start when the disc is inserted
I hope this helps Nick
This is a common problem so it should be a quick fix. But, depending on how many repairs the shop you are sending it to has will ultimately decide how long it will be there. Sorry to say but you may be looking at 4-6 weeks.
i have only had the console for 3 weeks and my fans are clean and almost everything is still stock except online and **** i tried signing off and signing on during the game but then my game will just freeze need help soon getting pissed off
