PS3 slim wont read discs and wont spin
recently my ps3 slim 120gb froze during gameplay and i shut the system off. Afterwards i turned it back on and it wasnt reading the disc so i took the disc out and put it back it. immediatly i noticed the disc light didnt come on and then after one or two seconds after inserting the disc it makes a noise like it is trying to eject the disc. i then eject the disc and it comes out fine. please help i am at a loss here.
This from a recent answer of mine to a similar question. First off, this is to clarify that I have not come across any guides for adjustments on the loading mechanism. There is a decent video on Youtube.com that shows how to replace the laser. It might show you more of the optical drive. Now, if you check this video, it appears that there is a possibility that this error is caused by a misaligned laser and spindle motor. If it does not pull the disk in, then there is a problem with the loading mechanism. If it does not read the disk, it is most likely an error with the laser assembly. Whatever the case may be, you will have to either disassemble your optical drive and further investigate, or replace the drive. Hope this helps, good luck.
My name is Stephen.w and I'm here to help you. It's not the disc or the laser it's the disc stopper what your gonna need to do is remove the back panel and by the door of your disc cover you'll see a little plastic wing slide the cover back and there's your problem lift up the little tab and insert a small pick or something what I did was I got a small plastic pick and cut it in a angle and made one side big and the other small and dipped it in super glue and placed it in and that's it disc spins and now you can play. Now remember if wemon don't find you handsome they'll at least find you handy lol ps for the PS3 super slim
