Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

My playstation 3 wont recognize any games or movies when inserted.

Whenever i insert a disk, blue ray, regular dvd, or game the console wont allow me to select it in the menu. I had a blue ray movie in one time and it froze. Since that night it hasnt recognized anything. Also the background of the menu and starting colors when it turns on are different than before the night it froze. Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas? Thanks

    I was playing my ps3 when the screen went black. I rebooted got back into the game and then the same black screen. Then the system no longer recognized any disk of any kind. I discovered that the disk is not spinning. I have only had the system about 4-5 months and can't find the receipt. The only way to get the repair under warranty is to have that receipt or a statement of purchase. Which sucks. In my Opinion why have the ability to register this product if sony cant even find a way to pull up my registration to tell me it is covered under their warranty. If they cant use that feature to help us out then GET RID OF IT. It is not helping us, its only a nuisance at that point.

If your PS3 is not reading disc, but can play demos, music, etc. You need to replace your PS3's lens.

My console works and lets me play online games but it wont let me play disk games how can i fix this


Your Blu-ray drive has gone bad most likely. Try inserting a blu-ray movie to double check. Also, try to play a music cd or a dvd. I usually see that cd's and dvds will play but the BR movies and games will not.If your concole is less that 1 year old, contact sony for a warranty repair. If it is older than 1 year, they will repair it for a cost.

The PS3 will not recognize games or movies. You load it and it will not show in up in the menu of options. It powers and shows the normal menu but does not recognize games or dvds regular or blue ray.

My PS3 has stopped recognizing games


it has something to do with the circuit inside, maybe the blu-ray lens reader laser got weak, the blu-ray diode just got busted there are tons of possibility the best thing you can do is that call the manufacturer and have them take a look

The lazer or the chip on the drive control board are faulty,give sony a call,their support line is very good,they may even replace your console even if its out of warranty(they did for me).
