PS3 Disc read error: Urgent, Want help before the 11th please!!

suppose there is no harm in asking what to do here. I mean my brother bought a ps3 first year, it stopped reading discs after 4 months and he gave it to me since. I tried to fix it last year to no avail. Let me just make it clear that I am not willing to pay for repair or buy a new one. I am fed up with sony as it is with their consoles reliability int the past and their bad service.

Supposedly this was a common malfunction in ps3's early on and can be fixed easily enough here. Last year I made the attempts to use the recovery screens but nothing happened.

I also would like to get this fixed because its christmas, and while its christmas its also my brothers birthday on the 11th. I dont have much money for all these gifts for my family. So I'd like to attempt to repair his ps3 before the 11th and surprise him with it being fixed. I know it would make him happy. There is nothing to lose really, it's as good as dead to him. Just in the sense that it stopped working so I know he loved the games he had on it and the ps2/ps1 compatibility.

Please, I know a lot of you are very skilled in these areas with computers and programming and fixing these kinds of things, so am I but I'm not perfect with it. I've fixed an Xbox before by actually opening it up... I'm just hoping the ps3 doesnt come to that but I could probably do it if I had to.

Alright, please flood me with suggestions, I really want this fixed before the 11th which is next saturday.

Most likely a defective lens. There are tons of guides online on how to open it up and change it out. It's probably long past it's warranty and sony will charge you $150 to fix it with no guarantee you'll get the same system back. Might as well crack it open, or you can try and find a local repair shop to see if they can do it.

Re: PS3 Disc read error: Urgent, Want help before the 11th please!!

that's what I was about to say. It is either a defective lens or it was in a harsh environment dirtying the lens. Most likely from smoke and stuff, which my bro did back then for a short time and he also re-drywalled his new room where it was at the time. I'm hoping I just have to clean it out like I did with the xbox. One problem though, I need a type of screwdriver I dont have to open the thing. six divet one which I haven't seen before personally.

Edit: I found this out by looking into it, if you put a disc in and the loading thing at the top keeps spinning, then its the lense.

Any way I dont have to replace the lens though if it is defective?

You could try and run a dvd cleaner in it though I doubt it'd work. The only thing I can think of to try is to open it up, clean the lens with a q-tip and see if it works again. If not I think the only option is replacing the lens/laser.

I don't think you can adjust it. I had to raise the lens on my PS2 after I had it a while but I don't think you can do that on the PS3

Re: PS3 Disc read error: Urgent, Want help before the 11th please!!

Well, I just spent about half an hour (probably more), working my way to the disc lens and was very careful, I reassembled it after cleaning off the dirty lens (yes it was very dirty) and when I went to test it I could not get a game in. I can't put games in it now, I'll wait to fix this issue now but I'm hoping it will work now. Any ideas why it wont take in discs now?

If I had to guess I'd say you weren't careful enough and something isn't lined up right anymore. Good luck fixing something like that.

Re: PS3 Disc read error: Urgent, Want help before the 11th please!!

from what it looks like I must have knocked a paperclip lever loose that allows the door to open. This happens when you open the disc drive apparently to get to the lens. So I forgot to put the paperclip lever back to the right spot. I'll try to fix it... (I found this by looking it up)

Besides, the ps3 is as good as dead to us anyways, if I can fix it its a plus.

I just skimmed this so I could be wrong but it sounds like your PS3 is broken and past the warranty.

I'm not saying you should do this, but a way to fix it is to buy a new PS3 from a place like walmart. Then return your broken one and keep the new one.

Re: PS3 Disc read error: Urgent, Want help before the 11th please!!

Good as dead literally, I like how the tutorial didn't mention that having the disc in the console when cleaning the lense causes grief in the sense that you have to have the dis in afterwards so it has something to eject first. So when I dug back there and put the disc in I realise I have to hold 3 different levers to a spot while closing the cover, which is impossible since my fingers get in the way... So after rigging up elastic bands and finally getting it I notice the stupid lever thing for the disc cover thing popped off so I get it right again with the help of my other brother screw it back on and then he picks it up and the disc circuit boards connecting wire snaps. No ejecting discs ever again. It was too difficult to create a plugin so you don't have the circuit board hanging from a thread essentially. Everything else has a plugin inside so they don't snap from these kind of things.

So I guess I watched the wrong tutorial and I was screwed from the beginning. The impossibility of holding those plastic levers and making sure the paper clip lever hooks to the right spot while it all involves closing the cover on your fingers is a terrible scenario. All because there was a disc in while doing this. Suppose it could seem obvious that with the ejecting technology of the ps3 to slide discs out of the console in that fancy way, should have been a thought and its not meant to be opened by you anyways. But it would have been nice to have little nubs on the top of the case to make an impossible situation possible without 2 people and elastic bands and low odds at that. I'm just trying to describe this the best I can and basically venting. Bottom line, it's laughable to try and fix this with the disc in. I feel like an idiot for leaving a disc in... Actually, I had no idea since I have not touched it in a year but I'm used to xbox with the disc tray. That's all I've fixed before.

Anyways, I think the wires lead to the levers that release the disc and suck it in. It's possible it still plays but its a half an hour task to switch disks. If anyone knows how to reattach wires the size of a strand of steel wool, let me know lol.

Sorry to sound all negative, I'm angry and I know its my fault, I don't blame my brother, I blame the wiring and my leaving the disc in unknowingly.

Kongs method might work but it's messed up and it's theft, same as if you stole it off the shelf.

Btw I say might work because I think all modern consoles have specific serial numbers/bar codes and stores are wise to the scam and they check for it.

Re: PS3 Disc read error: Urgent, Want help before the 11th please!!

I fixed a PS3 with this issue one time. I just bought a replacement disc drive on ebay. I want to say it was something like 30-40 dollars. And it was really easy to swap out as long as you are careful and make sure to put everything back exactly right. Also, I think certain models have different types of disc drive, so you might look up what kind yours uses. But they might all be the same, I can't remember.

Anyway, that's my suggestion.
