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

Sep 14, 2007
i had this exact problem, i called sony just like you and they had me do all the same things, and mine still wouldnt read, i still had my receipt and i just took it back to best buy (mine broke within the first 30 days i had it), so pretty much what happened is your disc drive has broken, i dont know why, sony should be able to send you a new one, if your still under your one year warranty, even without a receipt they can send you a refurbished one, it will take awhile though.

Going through the same problem here. system was fine two days ago. turn it on yesterday, find out that there's an update, so i go and download it, install, etc, only to find out that it wouldn't even read heavenly sword. put in other PS3, PS2 games, DVDs, but nothing happens. Downloads were fine though. Called support, did what they told me, and now they're sending me a box (anybody knows how long it takes for it to come?). I'm just going to hold out until either the box comes, and just exchange it, or just hope that another update comes soon (who knows, might work).

I say call em back about the receipt if anything, cuz i'm pretty sure you ain't the only one without one that had to send something back, so there's probably another option when that happens.

This happened to me mid August. It has nothing to do with updates, nothing to do with restoring your harddrive, it is the Bluray disc reader is gotten shaky and only choses to read disc when it feels like it. My systerm read all types of discs except PS3 discs.. On occasion, if you left the game in the system, shut down the system with the switch, turned it back on, it would work or right as you turn on the system with the disc in, eject and reinsert the PS3 disc.
 
Long story short, the system would have to stay on for days on end whenever I was lucky enough to get a PS3 game to work, that way I could play it until I received my box. If I was feeling lucky, I would remove the game disc and watch a movie, only for the same game loading problem to persist for a few more hours of trying to load it until it would load but I would be so exhausted from trying to get it to work, I would just go to sleep.
 
So I called Aug 18th, Received my box about the 30th or 31st, Sent it right back out, Received my replacement (which looks pretty darn new) covered in plastic on Sept 12... There is an honest time frame for anyone suffering from this issue or just wanting to know how long from beginning to end it takes to replace your PS3... about 3weeks... If you are fast about sending it in...
 
PS.. Restoring your data to the new system is amazingly easy. Just backing up the data to an external hard drive takes 3 hours and it does not save your PS2 saves automatically so make sure you save those on a memory card or whatever..
 
GOOD LUCK , DoCDESTRuCTuM
