I bought my ps3 (80 GB) for xmas...all was working perfectly fine....i did an update a few month ago(not sure which one) and ever since then my ps3 will play anything but ps3 games and blu ray movies...i just did the new update but it didn't change anything...please help ASAP i can't send it back, i can't find my receipt so i need to fix it myself
Remember how you paid? if it was a check or a card you can use that as proof of payment, just get a hold of r bank and let them know what the story is,make sure you get a backed up bank statement on the day you purchased it also is your ps3 still under warranty, if so talk to the store manager, or get a hold of people at playststion, one of those people should be able to let you know if there is in fact anything they can do for u. if your ps3 is not under warranty then i am affraid your screwed, unless you can find someone perhaps on the internet or at a computer store or something like that, that will be able to fix it, it sounds like a computer error if it hasn't worked since the update, the ps3 is really a computer not a video game system, call bestbuy ask for the(geek sqaud) maybe they can help, or gamestop they have those all over the country, hope this helps if you havn't already tried it. GOOD LUCK

Sounds like the Blue Laser may have gone bad. Try swapping out the internal blu ray drive with another one. You will have to take it apart and of course that would void the warranty unless you can make it look like the sticker on the bottom wasn't tampered with. On second thought if it's still under warranty just send it in and get your money's worth! ; )
I am having the same exact issue myself. Starting a month or two ago, it got harder and harder to get PS3 games to play. Now it plays anything that is not blu-ray based. I would be very interested in hearing how you are able to fix the problem.
Hi there, it sounds like your blu ray laser has become faulty. Unfortunately this is a very common problem for the PS3 and there is not much that can be done about it. New lasers can be bought but they are difficult to fix. You could buy a new drive from somewhere like ebay at a cost of around £60. They are much easier to fit than the lasers themselves but you must make sure you keep the circuit board on your blu ray drive and swap it to the replacement drive as this is paired to the motherboard and will not work if it is not with the original motherboard.
If your PS3 is brand new, you most likely have to update the system's
software to a more current version in order to properly play many
In order to update your PS3 system:
Go to the home menu, move to the "Settings" tab (the 2nd tab from the
far left), scroll down to "System Update". It takes about 5 minutes to
download and fully download the update, but it should solve the problem.
More information on the system update can be found below: http://www.us.playstation.com/ps3/about/systemupdate
Ok go out and get a cd cleaner. Should take care of it IF ITS DUST>
It costs 7-10$ and if it fixes your issue then you save a bunch!
If not you will need to make sure Sony's warrenty is not valid and its not if you dont have the recipet.
You can take it apart and instal a new blu ray unit or send it to sony for 150$ plus s&h.
I have blu ray parts if you need them.
ok there are a few ways ti fix this...turn off your console and switch back on so its in standby mode "red light on" then push the power button and hold it down till you hear a beep and it turns off then swith it back on and this will have reset it back to factory settings.....let me now if that dose not work
