Hi,

After the PS3 1.90 firmware update, I have problems reading any type of disc (whether it be Blu-ray games or movies, DVD movies or CDs)
The disc reading icon at the top right corner of the XMB keeps blinking, and does not stop.

Looks like I have a disc read error on all types of disc


Any possible way to overcome this ?



Does anybody know where I can send my PS3 for repair




Thx

doubt theres anyone in malaysia who can repair this except sony. But they havent officially launched ps3 yet.
If you dare, dismantle your ps3 and check the reading laser thingy. xD
Doubt its the firmware though. Correct me if i'm wrong. If it IS the firmware, just downgrade it hahaha
..or, wait for the next firmware which might fix the bug. Do some googling while you're at it.

I still think its highly hardware related though

I really doubt it's the firmware problem. It's just a coincidence after you update to the latest 1.90 firmware you can't read all the disc. SONY is well known for having crap lenses since PS2. I remembered last time my PS2 lens went out after 3 months of having it. PS3 lenses are already available. You can get it from eBay.

I doubt if you send it back to the shop where you bought it can do anything for you as you must know there is no official warranty for any consoles bought here in Malaysia.

There's a lot of sites that can guide you how to disassemble your PS3 and change the lense. The price is around RM260 incl shipping and the model number for the lens is KES-400AAA.

Could you pls paste a link to those forums.
I'm unable to find any that could help me


Anyway, I just called Sony Service Centre (M'sia), and they said that they do not repair PS3s.
Reason: It has not been officially launched.
My guess is that they probably do not have the equipment to repair


Going back to the guy that sold me the PS3 does not sound like a good solution.
My xbox360 took 5 months before it came back from repair !


Any help u guys can give is much appreciated !
Thx

Changing PS3 lens doesn't need any high tech equipment. Just a normal tool like Philips screwdrives and some brains.
