PS3 not reading Disc
« on: August 20, 2014, 09:29:58 pm »
Today i tired to go on my PS3 and it was all working fine until i put the disc in. It had the little loading sign in the top right, but then made some werid nosies and never came up with the game. I tired again, using different disc's and even tired DVD's and blue rays but still nothing worked. Anyone no whats happened? Can it be fixed? Can i fix it or have to take it into somewhere?

Cheers mac.

Ooo   that sucks  :(  I've got no technical know how to be honest, so can't offer any advice really. I think Plantsman might have some idea, i think he has taken his apart on more than one occasion.

Wishful thinking, maybe it'll be alright tomorrow  :105:

Yep I have and crapped myself first time, I don't suggest doing it yourself cuz you can get in a little mess, but if you have common sense and a bit of logic, or it's broken and out of guarantee if could be worth while :3:

Have to say I'm no expert!  But by the sound of it, it's at least recognising there's a disc gone in, hopefully it's just dust on the lens. Don't bother using the lens cleaning kits as this is a blu-ray and you could make things worse. Personally I would pop her open and give the lens a wipe. You don't need anything special, just a lint free lcd screen cloth will do.
Theres plenty of vids on youtube to give advise. JUST! do the thing you need to do then shut her up again, it can be tempting to have a further rumage inside lol

Some local pc shops may do it for you if you don't fancy it

Shot in the dark, but it might just be a firmware problem, try reloading updates and accessing the hidden menu, loads of vids on youtube tell you what to do  :113: It worked for me 1 yr back and I still have the fat version  :113:

Have you tried the shouting and kicking everything in your site method followed by getting a hammer and hitting the hell out of it?

not sure on the technical term, but they are shaped like stars. If you do got for it get some pen and paper and jot down stuff as you go, nice little reminder.

You do know you have to video this?  Then you can post it up for us all to see :3:  Couple of stiff drinks should help reduce the shakes when you open it up :10:
