Hello,
When you put in a disc, listen for the disc to start spinning. If you do not hear that then the laser diode has blown out. You will have to get your Blu-Ray player serviced by a pro or Sony. Sony may fix it for free or replace your unit.. They know that the drives are failing. So call them first. If you know how to do it yourself, you will need part KES-400A if it is not spinning. If it's spinning and not reading the laser may be dusty or need replacement. The laser by it's self is part number is KES-400A. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to hit my "Ask Me" button.

You can purchase the KES-400A replacement lense and replace it yourself by looking at some videos on youtube.

My system plays cd's dvd's but when i put a ps3 game in the disc wont show therefor im not allowed to play any games by disc


The Playstation 3 is a wonderful video game console, however, with heavy usage, the laser does eventually burn out. The first signs of the laser starting to burn out is that your game will start freezing during game play. Eventually the game will stop reading altogether (even though movies sometimes still work). Eventually movies will stop working and the whole laser will eventually die.

The following website sells PS3 lasers and also performs repairs:

Wont play games or dvds


I take it that you have performed the initial set of up the PS3 system 1 If the DVD/Games do not match the region code set in the system it can not be played. 2 When out putting DVD content in SD resolution, only discs recorded in PAL standard can be played. Remove the parental control restriction by increasing the viewer's age. 3 Games with Playstation 3 format software can only be played. Please check this aspect.

My playstation doesnt play any games but dvds do. i put a disc in and no game display comes up but a normal dvd will play fine.it sounds like its loading but nothing comes up.


This is normally because the laser on the drive is slightly off. The good thing is that you can fix this yourself it is quite simple.

Or of course you can send it in to be fixed it is up to you.

If you send it in you will have to pay out about $130 to get it fixed.
