Ps3 not reading disks?


I know this is a lot to read, but please if you are familiar with the ps3 system please try to help me.

My ps3 stopped reading disks. Like I can do everything except the game icon does not show up in the game menu. I realized that when I put a disk in the ps3. It spins and then stops then it might spin again and then eventually stop. Any help is greatly appreciated. I tried the recovery menu, but nothing seems to work. I also cleaned the ps3 lens. Doesn’t work either.When I turned on the ps3 with a blank disk I saw that the laser has light, but I don’t know what to do next.

  1. Carefully open your Ps3 and check the BluRay drive WITHOUT removing it. The samen thing happened to mine, and i was forced to purchase a new one for 350 bucks, as reapir is not worth its expense, as your system will most likely break down again.

  2. same thing happened to me the ps3 has to lens inside if dvds and cds work then it is your blue ray lens needs to be replaced but if cds and dvds dont work you need to do a full restore which can take upto 12 hours
