    I'm new to the PS3 zone and I was wondering when I insert the ps3 game it will not load up either in the menu or when I insert it. I dont even hear it spin I was wondering if there is anything that I can do to fix this or is there something wrong with the lens? I had it for 3 months now and it started doing this thanks in advance

    Is this happening with only one game, try cleaning your disc or seeing if it has a snap thats what happened to me.
    If not exchange it if you have warranty

    Same issue here, disk spins but not seeing nothing on screen. It also does not eject, does anyone know of a tutorial or if it is an alignment issue? No warranty so am seeking to fix myself. Help needed please !!!

    Dont think you always need the reciept. If you ring up sony and quote the serial number on the console they should no when it was bought and if it is still under warrenty. If it is they Will fix it trust me.
