PS3 is one of the most amazing devices by Sony, but it also has some common problems like disc reading problem. Good news is that most of the problems can be repaired and here I would like to share how to fix PS3 disc reading problem.
When having PS3 read problem, you should first check the game disc you are trying to play. Is there any scrap or damage on it? Try with another game disc, or DVD movies. If the problem persists, it may be caused by bad disc driver; if not, it is that PS3 disc problem. Don't be discouraged if your PS3 can't load any PS3 disc or Blu-rays. You must try the following tips:
1) Clean you’re PS3. Sometimes the PS3 disc reading problem is caused by too much dust. You may find your PS3 getting really noisy, if it is full of dust in it. You need to remove dust from the vents located around the unit. Clean the unit with a vacuum cleaner periodically.
Remember to do not use an air duster, because this can blow dust into and all over the unit, more critically on to your blu-ray laser. It will worsen the situation.
2) Reset the PS3 to default settings. First turn off your PS3, unplug it, and then reboot it after twenty minutes.
3) Format your hard drive. Many people reports having PS3 disc read problem after the new firmware update. Probably something in the new update screws up the blu-ray decoder and driver. So you could format your hard drive. However, this will unfortunately cause the loss of all your information unless you back it up on a flash drive.
4) Send your PS3 back to Sony. I do suggest you return it to Sony, if you still have warranty. If you are lucky enough, you may get a replacement of a new PS3.
5) Follow a PS3 repair manual and fix the PS3 disc problem by yourself. If your warranty is over and the tips mentioned above don't work for you, try to find a good repair guide and fix it yourself. By the help of a well written manual, most gamers will play their favorite games again within 1 or 2 hours.
If we didn't fix it properly, PS3 will not work permanently”. So, Repair it only by an expert like “Mobile Game Tech” guys.
