If you can no longer insert discs into your console or if your console no longer recognizes your games, the problem is with the disc drive. There are several possible reasons for this.

  • The discs no longer eject, and the drive makes noise: the drive or the disc ejection mechanism should be replaced.
  • The drive doesn’t respond to any commands: the drive motor should be replaced.
  • The console no longer recognizes games: if the discs are scratched or damaged, you’ll have to buy new ones. If they are in good condition, you’ll need to have the console’s lens replaced.3. The PS5 does not turn on anymore
