Suddenly having a The Last of Us disc read issue

6 replies 168 views Edited Nov 21, 2013

My TLOU disc suddenly won't read...

 

 

Two nights ago I put the disc in after downloading the Mask pack and I heard it trying to spin up but didn't think much at first. Heard it spinning up and down a lot and then heard it kinda thunk and struggle to read so I finally pulled it out and it was really, really warm. TLOU never made it to the point where it showed up in the PS3 UI and now the surface of the disc looks odd & rainbowish. No other discs having issues or look like that.

 

I bought it new at launch and just bought the season pass a couple of weeks ago too Smiley Sad


I tweeted at Naughty Dog & Playstation but haven't heard back.

 

Options? Ideas? Where to go for actual support? I've had no luck searching online for official help.

 

Really hope I'm not facing buying a new disc.

try cleaning BOTH sides of the disc.

 

if that doesn't work , just d/l the digital version (yeah it sucks paying twice, but this game is worth it imo).

not likely dust, having zero issues with other game discs. i'll double check my TLOU disc tonight but the readable surface looks noticeably different.

after I first took it out it definitely had a smudge on the edge and i'm guessing that's why it failed to read. But the disc was really freakin' warm when I took it out. i tried it again after that and then that's when i noticed the surface of the disc looked odd....

You could have scratched your disc, and when Blu-ray discs get scratched, they're unreadable.
