PS3 reads some Games other not or badly!


my PS3 120 GB have trouble to read Games and to play them.

I thought ok its the laser. But there is one thing i don´t understand.

There are games that runs after some trouble of reading Disc. But then it runs for hours until crash/freeze in the game.

But then some Games it wont read/indentify the Disc.

So I think it is my laser. But why some games are playable for hours and others cant identify.

Oh and sometimes it say´s bad disc data but this is really rare happening.

So what u think? Is it the laser or is their any other thing that can be the problem ?

Thank you for answers.

( sorry for bad english, hope you understand me ) :)

smoggoms, the first thing I would try to do is to clean the laser. Something like this and see what you get after you clean it. If that does not work, you might have to replace the laser assembly or the optical drive itself. Hope this helps, good luck.
