MY PS3 WON'T READ DISCS!?!?!

131 replies 17511 views Edited Sep 14, 2007
System worked fine until the 1.93 update.
 
Now when I insert a disc, (CD, DVD, BRay, PS3 Game, PS2 Game, PS1 Game, Etc), it won't autoplay, and it won't give me the option to play in the crossbar menu. Games won't show up in the games sections, movies won't show up in the video section, and music won't show up in the musc section of the crossbar.
 
I called Playstation Tech Support, and they had me reboot, clean disc, reset sys to defaults, etc, nothing worked and now they want me to replace the system, if I have the reciept, which I don't. Bought the thing on launch day back in November, it's a 60gig model. Anyone have any ideas? Already took a can of air to the thing.

All demos and software running off the HDD work fine. Just discs.

Yo dawg I heard you liked quantum mechanics so I didn't do anything, and I did something at the same time.

In the first post I said that it wouldn't read any discs at all.
 
Rebooting was the first thing I did, switched off the back, unplugged, power cycled for about 10mins, etc.

it might just be the disc drive then
 
if tech support couldn't help not much we can do, especially not being there
 
call them back and ask to swap it out, before your 1 year warrany ends

If you send it in do you have to pay money? If so
then I would wait till a new update comes out and that  might fix the problem

I tried resetting auto disc start in the setting as well. That didn't do anything. It figures the day I buy Heavenly Sword is the day this crap would happen... Just got home with it.
