Ps3 wont read discs


StangOne50

Recommended Posts

Everyday I have to open and close the door for about 15 minutes before the ps3 finally reads the disc.

I have tons of memory and use a lens cleaning disc every couple months.

Can anyone tell me what the problem is here and if there is anything I can do about it?

Ps3 is about 2.5 years old-500gb.

Probably that lens cleaning disc messed up your ps3

Really how so? Isnt that what it is for?

I have cats and smoke so I thought it would be a good idea to help keep the ps3 clean and last longer. I dont use the disc too much and only started in the last year or so. Probably ran the disc less than 10 times, not as often as I may have made it sound, my bad.

That's how mine finally died, it wouldn't spin up anymore.

 

If it doesn't get to speed, it won't read.

 

Replace the drive or get ready to enjoy "next gen."

Cats and smoking are any computer equipments worse enemy.

 

Cat hair can clog critical air vents which will cause overheating, and cigarette smoke contains nicotine which could short circuits if enough of it settles over time as the smoke has infiltrated the air vents.

It's probably dying.

 

My 360 had a tough time reading games and movies at the end of it's life (around the time the Xbox One came out).

Normally it shows an error code?, if you get "an error occurred during the start operation"

 

(FFFFFFFF)

 

This points to the bad components on the Blu-Ray drive (or ribbon cable needs replacing - this fixed mine), however check if it can still read dvd/bd films?.

 

You can get replacement parts from ebay.
