    We have switched it off and the problem isn't fixed. However, the friendly people at Gamestop said that maybe the center wheel is not spinning fast enough to read disc, because when I open the player, the disc is barely turning, and with my finger spinning the wheel it seems to have a lot of resistance. Is there a way to fix this!

The diagnostic mode that the PS2 has is calibrating the laser.after you switch off the console I believe the settings go back to normal.

My playstation 3 works fine except when i try to play a game. Sometimes an error message will come up saying that the disc failed to read. and sometimes the disc wont show up at all. Do u know how i can...

This sounds like a problem with the PS3's internals. If you have a warranty or repair agreement you can call Sony and they will give you an authorization # to send in your unit to be repaired. If you do not have a warranty/repair agreement you can try bringing your system to a local GameStop or similar store, they may be able to fix it. There are a few places you can find via the web that fix systems but I cannot attest to those as I have never used them.

My PS2 won't read any discs. We tried fixing it but nothing changed.

You may need a lens cleaner, or just a new lens in general. My advice, take a trip to GameStop or local game store, they may sell them or direct you to someone who could repair this. If not that, call Sony - they will be able to troubleshoot for sure.

How munch would it cost to fix my Mitsubishi TV - 52" Flat Panel TV: Model LT-52244.??? My kid hit and broke chip it.

Depends on the damage, your problem is vaque.

Best Buy, Radioshack both send off items for repair.

Find a local tv shop, if they fix it for less than $200 i'd be surprised.

depending on damage location, and severity i estimate $200-$800

Didn't eject disc before taking apart to clean laser

there is a certin tool that PS use's to put the ps3 together that stops that part because its a cd restrictive plate that stops multple cds to be in the PS3 at a time. Ur best bet would be to either send it to P.S and have dem fix it for you or bring it to a gamestop or any other gaming store.

Game tray won't close

You will need to get your dvd-rom replaced

You could do it yourself if your handy at taking apart and repairing electronics, or if not, call Microsoft at 1-800-4-MYXBOX if it is still under warranty. Or try your local game store, the big ones like gamestop, ebgames, gamecrazy probably won't repair your xbox, but its worth a try. If not, go to your local computer repair shop, because after all an xbox is a just a computer. I hope this helps!
