MY PS3 IS RUINING MY DISCS!!!!

28 replies 403 views Edited Jul 16, 2009

Seriously, what the heck?! A few hours ago, I popped in Assassin's Creed (bought the day before) and the game freezes at the UbiSoft Logo, I restarded and tried the operation 3 times and I still get the same results... I pop the game out, and i discover my game is covered by a liquid substance (which dried) and as a result:the game is ruined... I tried to pop in another shiny disc (The Orange Box) and I hear a weird noise in the console. I pull the disc back out and the disk was wet too... But fortunately I was able to save this one.

 

Can someone tell me what's going on?! I have a 40GB PS3 bought in december 2007...

Did you try cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol?  Some people have posted about their discs getting a line with some kind of grease, but it should come off.

Not yet, I'll try. But is my console even supposed to do that? And will it stop doing it?

I don't see how any kind of liquid could get inside your PS3. Sounds like somebody buggered up your PS3 and hasn't fessed up.

No one could do that to my console since no one ever comes in my room. But thanks for the support, if any one else want to comment go ahead.

There shouldn't be any liquids inside of ANY electronic devices.   not sure why the disc's come out wet, maybe you had something on your fingers, or you spilled something?

The only way there could be any sort of liquid inside your PS3 is if (a it's a transfer substance that was on a disk that you put into the PS3 and coated inside the disk drive or (b something melted inside.  (PS b is not likely.)

Do you have an AC that's really close to the PS3? If so it could be condensation, building up in it. Fat chance but it could be possible.

Seen it before.  Sony will replace your system if you want them to.  You gotta be in warranty for it to be free though.
