    Advice sought on fixing PS3 faulty laser

    Hi,

    I need advice on how to fix my PS3 thats not reading discs. It reads cddvd's but not games. Anyone can fix or reccommend somewhere in Birmingham area.
    Don't want to post it off or anything but would appreciate some feedback from people that have had their issues resolved.
    If anyone knows how to fix then that would be great!

    These guys are really good xbox360fix.co.uk/ in Nuneaton (not far from Birmingham) so you should be able to drop it off rather than post.
    Worth pleading with SONY to be honest as if you are insistent and ask for manager etc... they will eventually offer a FREE repair! Although that may only work with YLD.

    As it reads CDs have you tried a cleaning disc? It may just be a little dirt on the lens stopping it from focussing on the games discs properly.

    Cleaning discs can be had for a £1 or so (Poundland etc)

    Hi,

    Thanks guys for getting back to me but @Dave is it safe to use them cleaning discs? On some I have read that it is not suitable for games consoles, not sure with the technical aspects but that could do more harm than good? Maybe special blu ray cleaners may do.
