You use the ps button on the remote (if you have the correct remote for your ps3) the ps button is clearly marked and is found just above the SELECT and START buttons

    My PS3 will not load games, movies or Blue Ray discs. Usually when a disk is put in, the orange light will blink for loading, but this does not happen. What do I do?


    You might not actually need to spend any money on a PS3 repair guide at all- instead you will need to purchase a new Blu Ray drive (or laser lens itself and simply replace the lens) But even before you do that try the following things:

    • Clean your game disks
    • Clean your Blu Ray drive (get one of those laser lens cleaning kits on eBay or Amazon)
    If that doesn't work then I've got a free step-by-step PS3 repair guide that will show you with video and text instructions how to replace the Blu-Ray drive yourself. Its all online so you don't need to download anything either

    The logic board on the ps3 bluray drive smoked/burned, I tried replacing the board but the console does not seem to recognize the drive. I read on the web that the boards are paired/keyed to each other.

    Yes, this is correct. The PS3 motherboard needs to be kept with the original Blu Ray logic board, any other simply wont work. The only way you will be able to sort this out is to try and get hold of both the motherboard and Blu Ray logic board from another PS3. I would suggest looking for faulty PS3's where the Blu Ray drive is not reading games. You could purchase one and just swap your drive over.

    Hope this helps

    After installation of ps3 and blue -ray disc remote control. tried using remote to turn on and play a dvd dics to no avail nothing works the ps3 player nor the remote does't appear to recognize each other...

    Ive had the same problem with mine. I have a universal remote and a blu ray player separately installed on my tv. The only way i was able to play the ps3 without calling geek squad to reconfigure my tv was to unplug the blu ray and put the ps3 in its spot and push watch bluray. It worked great.

    Can't pair up my blu-ray remote with the PS3.

    I had same trouble in the beginning.
    I have 80G PS3 and tried pairing and also registering.

    I solved it by taking out the batteries then going to the menu where it says Register Blu Ray remote (System 2.40 version) then put the batteries back in and you do as the instruction says => Press Start and Enter button at the same time for 10 seconds ... it will say it registered.

    I just did it.

    Be careful, you cannot replace the motherboard simply. The particular blu ray drive logic board and motherboard are paired together with an encryption key when sony builds it. The drive will not work with another motherboard. You need to get a new blu ray board and motherboard that came from the same unit. More of sony's cheap tricks to make you spend moolah. Espescially after it seems they break righttt after the warranty goes out.
