How To Clean Playstation 3 Lens
If your PS3 is giving you a hard time when trying to read your seemingly clean discs, it may be time for you to learn how to clean a Playstation 3 lens. Unfortunately, with a laser lens like the one inside of the Playstation 3, contracting dust particles and other obstructions is almost inevitable. The good news is that cleaning a Playstation 3 lens is a simple process in most cases.
To clean a Playstation 3 lens, you will need:
- DVD Lens Cleaner
- Compressed Air Duster
- Handheld Vacuum
- Use a DVD lens cleaner kit to initially try to fix the problem. Sometimes, all that it takes to clean a Playstation 3 lens is a good clean-through from a trusty DVD lens cleaner kit. Before trying anything else, purchase a dvd lens cleaner and follow the directions indicated on the dvd lens cleaners package. This is the easiest and most hassle free way to deal with a dirty PS3 lens.
- If the first step did not work, use an air duster or vacuum to attempt to blow/vacuum the dust particles that are hindering the Playstation 3 lens. An air duster is a more forceful approach and should be used cautiously, but in most cases, it’s a successful one. Using a handheld vacuum is also a very effective approach as it draws out most of the dust inside of the Playstation 3 when held up to the disc opening. Use both methods carefully.
- If neither the cleaner kit, vacuum or the air duster worked, it may be time to bring your Playstation 3 to a professional. When it seems like the only solution is to clean the lens by opening the console up, it’s highly recommended that you leave this to a professional. Trying to clean the Playstation 3 lens directly, without the proper tools and sanitization area, could lead to a ruined Playstation 3 lens. This is especially true if you’re not sure about how to even open the console up to clean the lens.
