since last year, I have to insert a game multiple times for it to read. I will hear it spin then it turns like a cd changer. This only happens for games, never for blu rays or movies. I have to keep re inserting the disk. Any help is appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This is 100% the samething that happend to my brothers PS3 but after awhile it stopped reading the disc completely no matter how much/many times you tilt it
i had a similar issue years back with a ps2. the eye was out of alignment. i had to take it apart clean the eye. then turn it on. becareful because it does push out some sort of xrays. i reset eye it worked fine to this day.
remember tho break the seal on a ps3 warranty is gone. and im not sure this would work on a ps3.
i got info to fix the ps2 off of the internet. you might try to see if info is out there for the ps3.
You can try turning it a different direction to get it to work, or try the lens cleaning kit which which be the least expensive possible fix. If this won't work, it's possible thst the laser diode has gone bad and will need serviced or replaced. If you do it yourself(fairly easy) it's usually 20-30 bucks.
