I put my games into the disc slot and then it takes forever to try and read it but finally once it stops trying it wont recognize the game!!!! i put in some of my other games and the same thing happens! is it my disc reader or something else please help!

if it is the reader how much does it cost or does sony replace these for free?? and is there a way to fix it from home?

i have the same problem with rainbow six vegas 1 but i think its just ware and tear. so that could be it. someother possibilities are that the disk has breaks around the inner circle or you just played them so long that they just broken. let me know what happens

Thats a way to fix.


Or you could get Hoked on Phonics: Blu-ray for it.

What do you people do to your PS3's?

The lasers do not just break. You people must be doing something wrong with your PS3.

Alot of people report that it is dust getting into it. All they do is take it out and clean it with alchohol.

I doubt the problem is dust....

 

If the problem was dust then wouldnt you agree that nearly everybody would be getting this problem? Dust getting into a console is unavoidable, and if thats all it takes to break a PS3 then it is a peice of junk.

 

Trust me, I seriously doubt the problem is dust lol. IF the problem was dust, you could quite easily just throw a disc cleaner into the drive to clean the lens.

How long have you had your console? If you have had it for no longer than 6 months, then dust is certainly not the problem.

 

Unless you live in an extremely extremely excessively dusty place.
