Does it work with standard dvd? After update to new firmware mine stopped working as well, after trying all sorts of fixes from the web I called Sony and sent it back for repair, it came back with the same problem, so called again, it just came back and now it does seem to work. I think the new firmware caused the issue.

Blue ray is not working


hello there!
i see that you're blue ray is not working on your PS3 console,
do these steps first:1. unplug all the cables and plug it again after 5mins.2. Always remember to wipe first the disc and the disc tray before putting it. Sometimes the dust is the problem why the consoles cannot read or detect the disc. ( always do this even if it's not blue ray, OK?)3. try the blue ray disc to see if it's working.
if these didn't work, try to call the service center or other authorized technician of the console and ask about your problem. maybe it has to replace some parts.
kindly rate this post and thank you for choosing fixya.

My ps3 iant reading games or blu ray discs how can i fix this myself?


I've been told that Blue Ray movies don't work on PS3 unless you use an HDMI cable; but I haven't tested that. Also, some Blue-ray on PS3 load as movies, some load as games depending on the content. So check the automatic play feature, see if you can select the BD from the video section. On your Xross media bar, go to videos and see if there is a blue disc (BD-rom), click X.

Also make sure that the movie is actually blue-ray. Some old HD movies are sold off on eBay, etc as Blue ray when they aren't. Check it on Blueray.com, if the movie isn't listed it may be HD only.

My ps3 wont play blu ray movies or games but cds and dvds work fine


The Blu Ray Diode fried when you shut the power switch on in the back. The PS3 uses 2 different lasers to read disks. One for standard dvd's and cd's and one for Blu Ray. The only way to fix your PS3 is to replace the Blue Ray Diode or laser lens. I would recommend paying the $150 bucks to have sony replace unless you know something about Diodes and lasers.
If you hold down the eject button for 10 seconds it will reset your laser and then you should be able to shut the power down in back safetly.
Formatting and or resetting the hard drive won't do a thing if your diode is fried.
I found a work-around to get it to read discs though. You have to have a bluray disc in the drive (game or movie) and start a downloaded game or Playstation Home. Once the game or Home loads, hit the PS button on the controller. The crossbar menu will pull up and you will notice the disc icon will (magically) pop up. Click the quit game icon. Once you are out of the downloaded game or Home the disc icon will still be there. You can then load the game or disc. The icon will remain there until you eject the disc, so you will have to repeat this every time you want to load a game.

Check What Resolution You Have Saved On the PS3 Maybe When It goes Blu-Ray Its To High Res For The Standard TV..

Sounds like the HDD is in need of replacement. This is common with aging PS3's.

My ps3 wont read blue ray discs


I had the same issue with my 60GB model, but I did not open up the case. Sony will fix your PS3 (no matter the warranty) for $150.

To me, I would rather spend $150 by getting the blu-ray drive replaced than a whole new system.

It's actually a very fast turnaround time. They send you a box which most people call the "coffin", you put your ps3 inside and take it to the post office. Pretty quick and painless from my experience.

No game disc read


Are you using games from the same region? It kinda sounds like your laser is dead or dying.
