Or buy another lens or clean the DVD motor (the thing that spins the disc).

PS3 fanboys give PS3 owners a horrible rep.


Anyway, sounds like your DVD drive died, get someone to fix it or do it yourself.

when you close it and it says reading before it goes to just saying open tray, while reading, click the eject button and as soon as the tray starts click it again, this was a trick i had on one of the numerous 360s ive been through that had this problem, this was a fix i found for it but i hate to say it your 3s**tty is gonna die.

without modding the drive I dont think you can just replace it either. you may want to check on the warranty situation and see if it is something M$ will cover for free if not its time to force a RROD or E74 error so you can get it fixed for free.

Try removing the Disc when not playing games. (IE After you finish playing a game...Instead of just shutting down the console or going to the Dashboard, remove the game which takes you back to the dashboard anyway.) I had this issue a while back. Since the drive never failed during a game and only happened during the initial attempt to read, I didn't think it could be ONLY an issue with the drive. The symptoms lead to more of a system error. The disc read problem also affected system functions such as system start up, application startup, and transitioning from an application (or game) back to the Dashboard. All of these were taking unusual amounts of time. The system attempts to read the disc in the tray during all these functions. So the disc read happens often, and it failed often. So I stopped leaving the disc in the tray in order to get normal operation on all actions other than actually playing a game. Doing so seems to have helped with playing games as well. I have not had a disc read failure in some time now. Maybe easing the load helped. Not sure this will help your situation, but it's worth a shot.

I've had this a few times before, the "try opening and closing a few times" trick only works for a little while before you end up literally sitting there for 20 min doing so.

M$ will charge you around $125 for the fix and you will end up getting a different console just like if the RRoD happened. I suggest doing the towel trick & give your self the RR to avoid payment.

your laser may be off track and unable to read your games. if you don't care about voiding your warranty, open your console (many tutorials on line) and gently slide your laser back into place. then VERY gently turn the left gold screws on the back of your laser...if you google "open tray error fix" you should be able to find detailed tutorials...i got this error a while ago, tried the above method, system has been fine ever since
