NIB Super Slim PS3 does not read discs - Suggestions?

#1axemaster72Posted 11/25/2012 4:06:06 AM(edited)
Besides the obvious "call it in", has anyone else experienced a similar dilemma?

I purchased a new Super Slim bundle w/Uncharted Dual pack and Infamous Collection on Black Friday along with the 3D display. Finally had a chance to hook everything up this morning and it was going along well until I decided to try out the 3D with a game or two (after updates/downloads). No game thus far has worked. I have tried Motorstorm Apocalypse and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Neither of which has appeared on the XMB under the game tab.

After closing the disc drive, the disc spins and stop continuously for about 3 minutes after which the drive completely stops and the system is now silent. XMB is still up and I can navigate the system. Netflix works as does the PSN store and other apps. Games do not read.

I have tried hard resetting. Once the system declared itself corrupt and "fixed" itself. Still has yet to read a game or appear under the game tab.

Haven't heard of any PS3s being broken as such out of box so maybe I am doing something wrong...

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

The drive could have been damaged during shipping from the distributor. Return it to the store and get a replacement.

If it's NIB how do you know it can't read disks?
