PS3 Disk read issue

I have a ps3 fat model that when you put in a game it shows the icon spinning then it stops but still doesn’t show the disk. If I put in a ps2 disk, it tells me it can’t work with ps2 disks so it obviously sees the disks, just not sure what to do here. Any help will be much appreciated.
Thank you,

You could try rebuilding a new PS3 disk. I’ve had success with that in the past.

Does take a while though…

I have tried to get into the menus to do that but I only get to the screen where it says to plug in usb controller but it doesn’t seem to power on the controller when I plug them in??? So I cannot get to the menu list.

Are you using an OEM PS3 controller, or one from another manufacturer? I believe I had that same issue using a non-Sony controller, and when I used an OEM PS3 controller I was able to get into the menus.

Thank you for the info, I’ll see if GameStop has any oem controllers.
