I haven't heard of a PS3 getting so hot it bricks. If it won't turn on at all, you have no choice but to open it up to remove the disk. All of the "bricked" PS3's I have ever heard of, only has 1 solution......Buy a new one. There is no way to fix it if it's bricked. If you are not familiar with the term, "Bricked" means the system is completely unresponsive. No power or anything. I will hook you up with a link how to remove a disk from the PS3 with no power.

First try going to the store and buying a cd lense cleaner.. it just may be dirty..
I have opened tons of ps3's and you would not believe the dust inside of them..
IF thats a no go
then
Call sony asap, they will fix it as long as the seal on the side is intact.. it costs 150-175$ but a drive on ebay costs 130 plus s/h.
Then you have to put it in yourself.
Sony will give you a 90 warrenty on the system they send you.. it may be more not sure.

If it blinks a red light this is known as the yellow light of death(ironic i know). This is caused when the unit overheats causing the solder on the board to melt and bridge. Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

Why does my Playstation rejects game disks?


Clean the laser. Either open the unit, and clean the lens with a q tip and rubbing alcohol, or get a CD cleaner kit. If that doesn't work, you'll need a lens replacement like I did on mine eventually.

Depending on the model of PS3, if you are getting no power, then the only way to get the game out is to crack open the system and manually remove it. There are several vids on youtube of how to do this.

I do not know what to do says Please insert PlayStation or PlayStation 2 format disc. Please read it if you write to me with otgovor.A'm desperate.


if the disk is a Blueback, most modern PS2 consoles won't touch it. bluebacked disks still have their data stored in CD format rather than in a Data DVD

to play a Blueback
1. turn on the unit without a disk in
2. press Triangle on "browser"
3. scroll up to the top item and press triangle again
4. turn "Diagnostic Mode" ON
5. back out with circle, and start the browser
6. put your disk in with the browser on. is should read the disk

some disks will still cause the red screen (like cheat devices) occasionally

question did you update the firmware for the PlayStation? if so their is a potential that you patched the unit and can not longer play some files this way. a precaution taken by psp already to stop downloads of home brew and emulated media.

Hi my playstation has stopped reading any disk


Hi,

This is a very common problem on the Ps3 and is the first sign that your Bluray drive is malfunctioning.

Sometimes you can resolve it by gently cleaning the lens with a Q-Tip and isopropyl alcohol but most often the lens itself will need replacing.

I have included this excellent walk-through on how you can do this yourself.

Please be sure the console is disconnected from the mains supply before carrying out any of this type of work.

Otherwise the unit will have to be returned to Sony who generally replace the whole drive unit including the lens. Cost from Sony is $150 to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa
